I noticed the Axis light walkers lack the FAST ability, and without it the Allied light walkers are considerably better. Is this errata? Are they supposed to be FAST?

There is no errata and there is nothing previously stating or implying they should have the fast ability.

Have you compared the different walkers? Compare them and see if they are not missing something to balance them out. I think it is the FAST ability, but perhaps it is AGILE or something else. Otherwise they are weak. And I have written FFG and I await a response. I suspect it was not well thought out, and over the next few weeks I will be proven correct.

I am very dissapointed with the stats.  The Allied lights are a lot lighter armoured with the crewmen exposed yet they have the same armour and wounds as the Axis mech and move fast.  In the pre-blurb they mentioned the light walkers being scouts and moving up front, yet none have the Scout ability!

I am waiting for a response from FFG, but they have given me the "We are too busy with Gencon" answer. This is irritating in the extreme, so I propose we solve this problem ourselves with a round of battles.

I will test them out as printed and with Fast, Agile, etc.
