I don't think the GP02 should have nukes. I don't like the idea of having a weapon that's one shot, takes a fair bit of time to reload (say 1-2 mins since it's so strong) and rely on the vulcan's on the head for fighting corvettes, other MS's etc..
I don't think having the Birmingham is a problem. Seeing as i can easily get 3-4 GP02's (and lots of other anti-capital ship MS) to completely own it and any other Capital ship out there.
I just came back from playing and i must say, seeing 4 GP02's take out a Mothership in 2-3 secs is damn sweet. Goodbye to the Birmingham =P
From what I saw when using the Birmingham, in order for ALL of it's cannon's to deal the 48000 points of damage, it has to be at medium range (only forward cannon's provide long range attack). The Birmingham would have to get closer to the target in order for the rear cannon's to hit it, in addition to the forward cannon's.
Most players would have their MS own the thing before it could wield it's full power
One thing i'd love to see, as i mentioned before, are Mobile Armors (Dendrobium/Neue Ziel). But i'm quite sure they'll never be added to this. 'Tis a shame. They'd look so damn cool.
Hmmm MAYBE, if we bug the mod creator's enough, they'll yield and add them??? <evil grin>...eheheheheh
