I think that it should be marked as a Mixed (IS), due to fact that I've attempted to build MSK variant for TT, yet it's impossible with the purely IS components. With Clan ones - seems to be more feasible. And making sense about Un-named Clan connection. [[User:ManganMan|ManganMan]] ([[User talk:ManganMan|talk]]) 07:07, 8 December 2019 (EST)

TT conversion

I'm a bit concerned, how that 'Mech will actually be possible by TT rules. LBX/10: 6 crits, UAC/5: 5 crits ... Arm with UA and shoulder actuators: 10 free crits.

I sure do hope, the PC game will not go into that terretory, where the roots are completely abandoned.


Wolverine Connection

Is it worth mentioning the implied Clan Wolverine connection? Beast GTS (talk) 16:18, 29 November 2019 (EST)

A bit of math makes it seem like the Bull Shark has a speed of about 55km/h. Also in teh game its said that the ship the Bull Shark was on was SLDF, so it would make a bit of sense that the Bull Shark was made during Clan Wolverines destruction, as they did make several new BattleMechs and Weapons. Thats all speculation however.Lightninglash (talk) 16:11, 7 December 2019 (EST)
We can include the Wolverine connection in the article but it needs to be done in such a way that speculation is kept to a minimum. Same with the speed thing, we can work out the speed by comparing it to other units that we already know the canon speeds of but unless we are given hard numbers it is still speculation and needs to be expressed as such.
On another note, welcome to Sarna folks, if you need any help just give me a shout!--Dmon (talk) 16:28, 7 December 2019 (EST)

Tech Base
