Since Hyperion is Nagi's "yardstick" in TC, regarding weaponslots (or hardpoint size) with 8 Frontal, 2 L-front, 2 R-front, 3 L-rear, 3 R-rear [18 weapons total], Nagi will do well to be not too much better in armament.
In TC she'll be either a "Heavy M6"--like Hyperion; or a "Light M7". What will this mean for her frontal battery? At he very least Ion Shard Railguns--like Hyperion's. But why not something heavier? Like Gauss Cannons...However, this could overpower her, as some combat testing in a Truelight Seeker M6 armed with 5 Gaus Cannons vs. different M7's was an absolute slaughter--one pass for most hostile M7's was all it took. For Naginata, 5 or 6 Incindiary Bomb Lchr's (or even PPC's) would be preferable, as their considerable energy drain would "keep it real" in a way that GC's wouldn't..
Jeff's loadout of Nagi for X3R was pretty much BHEPT's all around. Which made her a magnificent M6-hunter. But in TC, with only HEPT's..she'd be a bit weak, when Dragon & Hyperion can carry ISR's up front.
Maybe I should stop complaining, and learn how to tweak her myself in Tships! Then send her off to Jeff for consideration..
Meanwhile, any comments?
P.S. This thread should be in a new "DDRS for TC" sub=forum, but I can't figure out how to make that happen...
