I'm thinking about a c3 lance with a LAM for a spotter.  LAMs are sooooo damn fast, tho.  I think I need super-long range attacks.

I like ELRMs, but they do so little damage.  Would Arrow IV be better?

Tag is your friend because you don't need a full network of it to keep it operational.

Artillery doesnt benefit from c3. Nor do indirrect attacks.

I took your advice and swapped some weaponry for Angel ECM on the LAM. It seems like a good idea.

The Master carrier is going to have 3 ELRM-10s.

The secondary 'mech is going to have an Arrow IV, an ER PPC, a c3 slave and an emergency c3 master.

A bodyguard 'mech is going to be prowling around with 9 ER medium lasers aided by a targeting computer and a c3 slave.  It uses some special effects in order to remain heat neutral.

And then there's the LAM.  It's going to have an ER medium laser, an ER flamer, TAG, a c3 slave and an Angel ECM.  With a WiGE movement potential of 24/36, I don't think there's much fear of getting hit by attacks, lest they are attacks that target hexes.  Flak might also possibly be painful.  I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with those.

But Arrow IV does, doesn't it?

Nope.

Put it this way, what are the range bands of arrow IV? Or, when is range included for an arrow IV's to hit number?

What about Arrow IV Homing Missiles?

C3 helps the TAG hit. Homing rounds hit on a 4+ on anything that has been tagged

Yeah, but since the fastest unit would be the one with TAG, c3 would not help much at all.

Unless there was an ambush.
