Battletech Tactics: Best 4 Medium Mech Lance

Mechcommander, you have the resources to build a lance of four medium mechs tasked with engaging a variety of targets- mechs, tanks, and air-support while being pressed into a number of combat roles.

What four mechs do you take?

I’ve been exploring this question, looking over some of my in-game notes, and I would go with four Blackjack mechs…

OK armor combined with speed and jump jets means it is going to be hard to pin down, and will have a movement option for both open engagement in woods and plains terrain, along with jump-capability for hills and cityfight.

AC/2 has the range to plink away, and while one Blackjack can put down some every-turn-harassment, 4 working as a team have the range and damage spread when firing on one target to put on a few hits each turn.

For close in work, 4 medium lasers X 4 is enough to engage plus the added fire from the AC/2.

Only dislike mission wise would be a lack of hands anywhere in the lance.

Your four medium mechs?

    1. We will have to try this out after one of our regular BT games. I’ll laser card print four yellow Jenners and four Blackjacks…
