Variant proposal for Brigade Models Tigerhawk

Post by Rommel Twee »

With prodding from Zac(ouch !) a Arrow 4 variant of the Tigerhawk. I am only planning on submitting three variants of the T-hawk to Brigade, so maybe this one ? Comments welcome

I like the idea of the Arrow IV variant, but the configuration doesn't really flow. The arm/feed setup looks more like a cannon setup rather than a missile launcher. I'd suggest a more conventional pod launcher in the arm.

I would definitely like seeing a RAC variant of this.

And yes, I had to use a drilling rig to get at this thread!! :D :D

Looks REALLY cool. It's a bit faster than necessary for an artillery piece...any thought of using a smaller engine and putting that weight toward more armor and/or weapons? It would be a small weight savings, but it may be helpful is this thing gets tracked down and ends up being too close to use its Arrow IV.

It's the Arrow variant of a mech. It would not really make any sense to change it. :D :D That would make it an entirely new mech.

An actual produced Tigerhawk mini?????

Post by Mr Balk »

Rommel Twee,

You actually going to get this project done or you just teasing me again? :?

I have been excited to see this in production for 3+ years so I am hoping this time it will not "die on the vine".
