WOW, looking great.
Thank you team
You have to understand the code of duty and honor that rules those who pilot these engines of destruction. Placing such an awesome weapon in the hands of an individual implies a similar gesture of trust

Is it just me, or does that Warhammer have twin large lasers, an SRM6(edit:  NVM I forgot the warhammer has a huge spotlight on that shoulder), and some other big gun?

I think that is the x2 LXPL/Gauss variant.

Those beams look pretty solid to me....and I don't recall the LXPL/Gauss version having an SRM launcher on the left shoulder.

edit: derp, nevermind.  That's the spotlight.  Forgot about that.  The beams still look solid though.

Yup, the Fafnir right next to it is decked out with XPLs and all those looks solid as well.

Everything looks awesome except the ugly non-readable new HUD . . .

Great stuff.

Should ask while all this HUD stuff is going on... will there ever be a direction indicator reintroduced for the Battle Armor HUD?  Kind of a pain getting along without the thing.
Thanks for the view.

Love all of it!

New HUD is fine. The only point is the minimap in the upper left corner. I believe, it would obstruct the view quite a lot. Especially, when fighting enemy aircrafts.
The reworked weapon screen is better, then the old one!

Seriously, it is WAY easier and faster to get the same information from the same place. Why is there any need to move away the minimap?
