Don't know if this topic's been brought up before, but …
The Mickey A.V.R.E. from the 1:35 Dust line (Link here) has never been printed as an official stat card, even though all a DT player has to do to have one on the field is take the rocket rack off of the Steel Rain walker and add a .50 cal MG.
So I'd like to use the AVRE in my casual DT games, but I want the community opinion on stats & AP cost first.
Here's my theory:
The AVRE should have the Jump skill (like the Barking Dog walker does). It would NOT have the regular Mickey's Fast skill b/c of the heavier Petard Mortar. I guess the biggest questions are: should it have the Self Repair skill, and what should it's AP cost be?
I'm thinking YES on the Self Repair since it is so close to a standard Mickey, and an AP cost of 36 would be fair (heavier weapon than the 35 AP Mickey so one more point). It would end up being a Mickey w/o Fast & armed w/ a Petard Mortar instead of a 75mm howitzer.
Any thoughts? I look forward to any responses. Thanks guys and gals!
