I'm making up more combat armour for my Highlanders 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Company. This is a WIP shot of my current Dream Pod 9 conversions of Heavy Gear Jagers into CASE-2X Dogs. The picture shows some of the alternative weapon load-outs that the Dogs can carry. These Dogs are going to numbered as being from Alpha Squad 4th Platoon.
From the glossary in my novel:
CASE-2X Combat Armour System Environment Dash (Mark) 2 Extreme that is driven by its operator. It can operate up to three days before needing to be refueled; see FM51-CASES and TO-2051-16-02-1U for further details. Command variant CASE-2XC has enhanced C4 suite.
The combat armour on the left carries:
M21A8 A 20 mm recoilless gauss rifle with an eight round cassette magazine/powerpack.
While the combat armour on the right carries the standard load-out I've shown before, but the addition of a shoulder mounted missile pack:
M41 The Global Dynamics M41 AC230 is a long-recoil auto-cannon that fires a 20 x 170 mm round with a range of 5 kilometres, and it has an inbuilt Mk 30 40 x 53 mm under-barrel grenade launcher effective out to 1 kilometre. The M41 standard load-out is four-magazines each holding ten armour piercing tungsten-steel penetrators, and two-magazines each with ten High Explosive Air Burst (HEAB) warheads, and five rounds of High Velocity Canister Cartridge (HVCC) for the grenade launcher.
There's still a bit of what I call fuss work to get these ready for painting. My workbench has three more models waiting for me to finish.
NB: Edited 25.03.15 to reflect changes in the background material & again 24.04.15 due to evolving definitions of weapon capabalities.
