September 2009[edit]

Should it be mentioned that in various magical traditions, a Slyph is an Air Elemental, a Gnome is an Earth Elemental, an Undine is a Water Elemental, and a Salamander is a Fire Elemental? --Cameron 16:32, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
This article is about the "original" Toad battlesuit. That information can be noted in the article for each of those battlesuits. I'm pretty sure that I did it for at least one. --Scaletail 01:42, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Is it correct in stating that one of the modular weapons for the Elemental is a standard Small Laser? Since the Elemental is a Clan battle armor, wouldn't it use an ER Small Laser instead? Or is it that battle armor is an exception to the Clans general lack of standard-class energy weapony? — The preceding unsigned comment was provided by DragonoftheRust (talkcontribs) on 20 October 2009.
Yes, it is a standard small laser. --Scaletail 23:37, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
Newest source with stats, Technical Readout: 3058 Upgrade, reconfirms its a standard. Cyc 00:01, 22 October 2009 (UTC)
weapon is actually something similar to IIRC Infantry scale (Clan) Support Laser ramped up to do the damage of an IS Small Laser...looks like they will do more for RPG stats in AToW--Cameron 01:47, 22 October 2009 (UTC)

Elemental II[edit]

I believe the Elemental II suit has enough info to warrant a separate page for itself. Thoughts? LittleWolf (talk) 12:19, 7 April 2018 (EDT)

It's a different enough design that I want to agree. However, it is also a failed/cancelled prototype that appears unlikely to be revisited future products. As a standalone design, that is enough to start a new page, but as a (very) different variant, I don't think it is.--Cache (talk) 12:30, 7 April 2018 (EDT)

Machine gun or Heavy Machine gun[edit]

I am currently datamining the Shadows of War novel and have come across a really nice little nugget of info but it is not 100% clear what weapon it is. so I am going to just leave a note here for now in hopes that we can use it at a future date.

A character is noted to of been killed by "Three Thirteen-millimeter slugs from the Elementals anti-Mech machine gun"[1], I am leaning towards the weapon being a Heavy Machine Gun as the time scale and faction both fit and it would better justify the "anti-Mech" tag than a normal Machine Gun.--Dmon (talk) 06:37, 12 November 2019 (EST)

Vehicle and BattleMech machine guns include 12.5mm and 20mm models. I would consider 13mm to be within the standard machine gun range.--Cache (talk) 16:38, 12 November 2019 (EST)
Very true, I do not think we have any data for Heavy Machine Guns at all.--Dmon (talk) 16:42, 12 November 2019 (EST)
And just over a year later we get 12mm from one of the stories in Shrapnel Issue 2. New trumps old.--Dmon (talk) 18:33, 16 November 2020 (EST)
