I was just wondering what the actual engine was. In the "Description", it says that it uses a standard Fusion Engine, while in the "Technical Specifications", it says that it uses and XL engine. And also I am confused at how a the Hellion could have a speed of 76 km/h and suddenly jump to 151 km/h with just the MASC. I do not think the MASC could improve the speed to the point of doubling it. I am not quite sure how to use the talk page properly so I apologize in advance for any mistakes I may have made. -- EMGOS 21:09, 25 February 2008 (CST)

No need to apologise. By my calculations, the engine should be XL. The description is wrong but the table is right. About the MASC, what it does is let the 'Mech move double its walking speed. So it works as it should. Haruspex 01:45, 26 February 2008 (CST)
Wait, wait. The speed on the table is a bit off. Running/flanking speed is used for top speed, which in this case should be around 110 kph assuming that the Hellion has a walking speed of 76 km/h. If this is the case, the MASC adjustment is correct but the speed on the table should be changed. Haruspex 01:52, 26 February 2008 (CST)
Fixed both issues. Thanks for noticing them, EMGOS! --Scaletail 15:37, 26 February 2008 (CST)
