Damage 8D
Special:
Turret Mode
Description: The AT-MA's main body can spin 360 degrees on the turret ring that links the body to the legs. Due to stability issues, the main body must be locked facing forward while the AT-MA is moving. However, if it is immobile, it can position its legs in a wider stance and lock them into place for added stability. In addition, the walker can engage a supplemental magnetic shielding system that adds both additional stability support and added protection from attack.
Rules:
-To use this system, the AT-MA must slow to a complete stop, then take 1 round to place its legs in stable position (also takes 1 round to transition legs back into locomotion mode).
-When engaged, alter the above stats as follows:
--Heavy Turbolaser Cannon. Fire Arc: Turret (may only fire into one round per arc, and may only traverse one arc per round).
--Hull +1D
--Speed: 0; 0 kph

Capsule: The AT-MA-T is a mobile weapons platform that is intended to provide heavy fire support for AT-AT formations. Based on the same basic frame as the AT-AT, the AT-MA sacrifices almost all of its troop capacity to carry heavy artillery and other support weapons. It retains enough passenger space for a single infantry squad, who are generally deployed to secure the immediate area around the vehicle when it is immobile.

Developed in conjunction with the AT-AT Mk. II under KDY's Project Scirocco (the corporation's in-house code name for the AT-AT Enhancement Program), the heavily armed AT-MA-T is capable of engaging small capital ships in low orbit, and can lay waste to anything it encounters on the battlefield. It features much heavier light defenses than the standard AT-AT, and Alliance Airspeeder attack teams suffer much heavier losses when attempting trip attacks on AT-MAs. In addition, because of the similarity of design, the AT-MA can be transported (barely) aboard the same landing barges as an AT-AT, and the use of the same engine and drivetrain allows the AT-MA to keep up with AT-AT units even at top speed.

While the initial design of the AT-MA mounts a heavy dual turbolaser cannon, other models are currently under development, including quad lasers for air defense (AT-MA-Q), ion cannon (AT-MA-I), concussion missile launchers (AT-MA-C) and heavy mass drivers (AT-MA-M).

I think it needs a couple more turbolasers!

I know, right? But, that's Battletech for you. I didn't even know this thing existed until garhkal mentioned it.

Here is an even better on of the AT-HE with both AT-ATs & AT-STs to compare size

Actually, fractalsponge's home page identifies the first one as the All Terrain Siege Platform...

And that is what I get for believing the Google image caption.

Nice write up. Though why do they Turbolasers range get higher when it shifts from being used against other ground targets, vice hitting something in orbit?

The theory I'm working on is that, for targets actually on the ground, the turbolasers are pretty much only limited in range by whether or not the target is over the horizon. For airborne targets, the range is then limited by atmospheric attenuation. For space targets, the cannon is firing within 45 degrees of straight up (basically, the Top Fire Arc). At that angle, it has the least amount of atmosphere to shoot through, so beam strength doesn't degrade as badly.

Basically, I was thinking something like this would be appropriate for capital-scale cannon; if they can fire from orbit down to the surface, the reverse should also be true.

Of course, if the cannon were only limited by range to the horizon, their maximum range would be more like 17-18 kilometers...

Meh, it happens. Personally, I wish fractalsponge had gone with a more inclusive route and made his Shock Enforcer the Heavy Enforcer, since no official imagery of the Heavy Enforcer exists. I prefer to fill in the gaps in existing material as opposed to coming up with something completely new.
