cannon trivia ?![edit]

I noticed a new trivia. It concerns some "mechassault 2" experience. The Mechassault serie is, as I own it, nothing but non-cannon. (when you read the Mad Cat is an Inner Sphere mech in the manual, you quickly understand it). As this Wiki is intended for cannon description of the battletech universe, and as this trivia is absolutly non-cannon, I ask admin authority opinion on this trivia. Also, it doesn't speak about Battletech features, but game features. --FIVE-one 14:34, 4 June 2008 (CDT)

IIRC, when Nic first switched Sarna to a wiki, part of the idea was for BTW to be an encyclopedia, but also a forum for the community. We haven't focused very much on the latter aspect, but I think this comment, as well as the custom variant, have a place here, just not one that we have been able to define yet. No, I do not believe that that place is in the body of the article, where those comments are now, but maybe they could be moved to the talk page? This issue could be much larger than this one comment on this one article. --Scaletail 20:31, 4 June 2008 (CDT)
Indeed it have all its place in the talk page, but not on the main article. As you are the ruler here, I let you take your decision --FIVE-one 14:08, 5 June 2008 (CDT)
LOL!! I am far from the ruler, just one member of the community. I'm assuming we have consensus since nobody else has weighed it, but I'll wait a day or two and see if the author of those comments makes a case. --Scaletail 18:54, 5 June 2008 (CDT)
Well it looks like DragonoftheRust and you are both guys leading the way to give this wiki some "norms", to avoid this wiki to become a real mess. It's what I meant by "the ruler". Aren't you the admin of this place by the way ? At least, you are the one that always answer to critical polls concerning posting and editing --FIVE-one 07:47, 8 June 2008 (CDT)


  • This 'Mech is almost identical to the Stiletto from MechAssault 2. The main differences are that the Stiletto has a flamethrower and Jump Jets, unlike the Raptor II. Also, the Raptor II has an armor plate below the cockpit that the Stiletto lacks. — The preceding unsigned comment was provided by INsaneTACS (talkcontribs) .

House Rules Variant[edit]

  • S-MOD - This is house rules variant for the RTX-4U that equips the 'Mech with Jump Jets and Flamer special rules as long as the 'Mech is equipped with Heavy Armor. The upgrade costs 9 points. — The preceding unsigned comment was provided by INsaneTACS (talkcontribs) .

I.S. General?[edit]

I don't own the source product but isn't this a WoB only mech? Also, the Variant needs a name and BV.-- 19:09, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Its not IS general 'Mech. It exclusive to WoB, but after the Jihad its not know. 'Mech only appeared scantly by the Dark Age and not in any regular militaries. -- Wrangler 22:21, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
