On page 246 of TRO:3039, the MON-68 is listed as a Combine variant that downgrades the engine to a GM 175 and replaces all of the weaponry with a single Diverse Optics Type 30 large laser in the right arm. However, in the Mongoose article on here, the MON-68 is listed as an SRM-armed version courtesy of RS:3050u. I don't have access to the latter, so I don't know which is right. Anyone?

The MON-69 from p. 228 of RS:3050 Upgrades Unabridged (Clan and Star League) uses an SRM 2 in place of the Beagle Probe and has a BV of 737; the MON-68 from p. 58 of RS:3050 Upgrade (Clan and Star League) also uses an SRM 2 in place of the Beagle Active probe, although it has less armor than the MON-69. There's also a MON-68 on page 405 of RS: 3039 Unabridged, and that looks like the Combine variant with the large laser and has a BV of 676. BrokenMnemonic (talk) 13:06, 16 April 2014 (PDT)
Well crap. GOLFisNOTaSPORT (talk) 19:44, 16 April 2014 (PDT)
I've taken a look on the Master Unit List and the MON-68 variant it cites is from RS: 3039 Unabridged, with the MON-69 it cites coming from RS:3050 Upgrades Unabridged - which makes me think that the MON-68 from RS: 3050 Upgrade has been superceded. An Ask the Writers question is probably needed to sort it out definitively, though. BrokenMnemonic (talk) 00:44, 17 April 2014 (PDT)
