TRO Prototypes Cover by flyingdebris TRO Prototypes Cover by flyingdebris
Cover for the Battletech Technical Readout prototypes done for Catalyst Game Labs featuring a ultra ac10 sporting hunchback in a hangar.

Funny story
Cover links all the way back to that fan drawing i did many years back of the Hunchback in the snow in a round about way.

-Make hunchback fanart for shits and giggles.
-Years later starting doing official BT stuff, asked to repurpose fanart, make updated version.
-Art director, Brent Evans canonizes that specific appearance of the Hunchback with a new variant.
-End up making a cover featuring that variant.

Astonishing master piece of work. Did you take some inspiration from Gears of Wars...? Doesn't matter, this is wonderful.

I'm gonna guess 4 AC/2 as opposed to one AC/20.....if MW4 values are to be trusted then AC/2s are no less than 8 tons each....how is there room for anything else in this thing?

It is either an Ultra/AC or a Rotary Autocannon.

A: A username you did not expect to see? Do you know (of) me from somewhere?
B: In his concept art for the Cicada in MechWarrior Online, he did a similar weapon pod on the torso which is an Ultra AC/5. I wouldn't be surprised if this piece is an Ultra AC/10 or a Rotary AC/5.

A:waaaay old webcomic I found on TWC, was fairly good
B:also true, I generally wouldn't expect the barrels of a rotary to be arranged in a square though
