"Seabuster" entries in the MHB

Postby Storywriter J. Allen » Sun Nov 12, 2017 8:48 pm

Under aerospace fighters I see two entries model name Seabuster. Under variant one says IH the other says Strike Fighter.

Is that supposed to be the Seabuster variant of the Mechbuster?

Yes & No. The Seabuster IH is:

SeaBuster IH
Built as a prototype system, the "SeaBuster" variant of the MechBuster marries a Flotation Hull with a Recon Camera. These two modifications allow the SeaBuster to take off from any available lake or river and function as a reconnaissance asset. This is very useful as the Improved Heavy Gauss Rifle that acts as the main armament only carries a single ton of ammunition, severely limiting battlefield endurance. A mere two and a half tons of Heavy Ferro-Aluminum armor protect the fighter.

The Seabuster Strike Fighter is a variant of the Bat Hawk which is a variant of the Meteor Heavy Strike Fighter:

Seabuster Strike Fighter
A five ton heavier Magna 250 Fusion Engine powered variant of the Bat Hawk intended to replicate the MechBuster based custom built version, the mass-produced SeaBuster carries a nose mounted Pontiac Ultra 100 Ultra AC/20 to inflict massive damage on an enemy force. A Diverse Optics Type 2 Medium Laser in each wing provides supporting firepower. For additional tactical flexibility, the SeaBuster carries a Recon Camera in the nose. Finally the SeaBuster uses a Floatation Hull to allow it to land or take off from waterways. Iron Halo 777 Heavy Ferro-Fibrous armor protects the pilot from enemy fire.

Thanks for clearing that up.

I'm a little surprised they aren't just listed as variants for the Mechbuster and Meteor.
