Battletech - Concussion by Shimmering-Sword Battletech - Concussion by Shimmering-Sword
Another Battletech commission. You see I do a lot of these :)

A Concussion 100 ton assault mech and Sagittaire 95 tonner are joined by LRM carriers and a Marksman M1 tank, forming a fire support group defending their base perimeter.
Concussion weapons load out:
2 Extended Range Large Lasers
2 Gauss Rifles
2 Long Range Missile 10s

For those wondering, the original Concussion design is by David A White, aka Mecha Zone: Mecha Zone: Concussion 2-A

Loving this version of it!

a bit light for a 100 tonner, maybe has a massive engine. i would suspect maybe 4 med pulse or 2 large pulse or 2 more ER large lasers for more firepower.

A pair of Inner Sphere Gauss Rifles alone weigh 15 tons excluding ammo. Ammo is 10 slugs per ton and to make carrying and using 2 viable you need 2 tons per gun. Then you have 2 Extended Range Large lasers, which are 5 tons a piece and give off a bit of heat. The 2 LRM10s which are about 2 tons a piece. To make those viable you need at least 3 tons, which is 180 missiles per ton for 540 rounds.

Atop all that, you probably have a standard fusion engine because those side torsos would be hard pressed to take Gauss with a XL or even light engine. So the engine itself is about 25-30 tons maybe. Then you factor in armor and heat sinks too.

Now, since all that's out of the way. Those Gauss slugs each hit for 15 points, and there's 2 of them, which is 1 more then the Atlas K's 1. So that's 30 points alone. Then you get 8 points of damage per ERLL, and 20 points off the LRMs. That's a 66 point alpha in total. The Atlas K has a 63 point alpha by comparison.

So in actuality, they are comparable in damage, and in the way they prefer dealing it, at mostly long range.

Tonnage-wise, it's actually got quite a bit more weaponry than an AS-7K Atlas: that weapon loadout is 50 tons without ammo, and it probably needs some extra heatsinks to handle the heat.

Never heard of the Concussion. It looks awesome, though (I just realized that can be construed as a battletech pun).

The parts are mostly from the CAV mech of the same name, so it's not a design Catalyst could use.

Now that is something you seldom see in BT art - the LRM carriers! Spot on work on that sir, right down to the radar housing!

Are the Gauss rifles the green rays?

The client was probably thinking of the Dark Age Jess carriers when he asked for LRM vehicles, but I wanted to do the old carriers.
Yep, gauss trails. He wanted the effects more pronounced than I could have gone for otherwise.

Concussion (Fafnir custom) reminds me very much of a ride I used in MW4: Mercs.  Just drop the LRMs and upgrade the ERLL to LgXpls.  :-)

At first I thought that the Concussion was the similar-looking Fafnir, also a 100-tonner.

Despite being a 100 tonner, the Concussion looks like a Fafnir after working out.
