Stats for MRBC Union

Postby Coyote » Tue May 29, 2018 3:06 pm

Considering it's been a few years, and I can't seem to find them anywhere, does anyone have the stats on the starter dropship, the MRBC version of the Union?

It's the standard upgrade, but IIRC it had one notable modification. I think it could hold 2 Battle Armor Squads for transit (no air locks for Space operations I'm thinking though.)

Alright. Thanks for the info.

Trying to get a tally of my transportation requirements and what I'll have to store in the cargohold. I went kinda non-standard with unit TO&E.

Concerning the bay conversions on dropships, is a single infantry squad treated as a whole platoon or?

Example: 5 squads of infantry, 3 of battle armor. I want to put 2 BA squads in 1 Mech bay. In the next, I put 1 BA squad and 4 infantry squads.

That's 4 infantry squads and 3 BA squads accounted for, with 1 infantry squad of 7 men left over. Do they require half a Mech bay being a single squad?

Second question.

If I have four 10 ton vehicles and one 15 ton VTOL, those can go in the cargohold without doubling tonnage, correct?

1. I don't think anyone would begrudge you if you dibbied that last odd squad up and made each of your other squads a man heavy. :roll:

2. YES. Anything under 21 tons does NOT need double the cargo space.

What variants are covered under the MRBC Union? Per BattleTech Wiki, the following exist:
Cargo Hauler
Combined-Arms
Fighter Carrier
Command Version
3055 Upgrade
Pocket Warship
Union-C
Union-X

Under MHB, the following exist:
Standard
Upgrade
MRBC
Upgrade BA
Pocket Warship
Union-C
Union-X

I'm wondering if the MRBC Union can be modified to any variant not listed in MHB, such as Cargo Hauler, Combined Arms, Fighter Carrier, Commander Version, and 3055 Upgrade (unless the MHB Upgrade is the same type).

Under the Military Hardware Brokerage, there is a tab for drop ship rules that allows you to modify any of the drop ships. This might allow you to mod into those other mission types.
