TRP-1 Trooper redirect?[edit]

Why does Trooper (BattleMech) redirect to the Flea?

Because for the first 20 years of its life that's what it was called and no other 'Mechs are known to be called Trooper. Much like Nexus II redirecting to the Nexus page, redirect to cover name change rather than whole new article. Cyc 21:47, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

Armament Section question[edit]

Where it says "These are backed up by an unfortunately placed Olympian Flamer which works well for anti-personnel use." I am lost. I see nothing in the wiki to support the statement that the flamer is "unfortunately placed" or why. Is this opinion, canon, something else? Some supporting information for this statement would be helpful or it should probably be left out. Varcoris

You are right; that word is opinion rather than fact, and should be removed. Btw, it seems you (Varcoris) were accidentially deleted in the last spam purge. Apologies! Please re-register. Frabby 13:44, 28 September 2012 (PDT)
It's my paraphrasing of "Its (rear mounted) placement, however, has led to more than one derisive comment." from the Flea entry in TRO:3039. Suggestions of how to improve/change? Cyc 15:22, 28 September 2012 (PDT)
