Overview
Once again,another crack a decent heavyweight AC.I was able to complete "Occupation of Arteria Carpals" with it on hard,though I got a B.That mission had been untouched on my from scratch play through for a while.I think the ECM effect of the plasma rifle helped and I stuck close to Old King so the attention of the 5 ACs wasn't solely on me.In any case,if it completes that mission,I count it in the good AC catagory,so...

I realize it's a bit late in the game for fA design posts,as almost no one plays it anymore.I myself haven't touched it in a long while,but for some reason decided to pop it in and build a heavy.Of course,it's named after the greatest style of music in existence! Hey,it's a heavy and made of metal,what can I say?

All in all, good build. It's overweight by standard on 1.4 regs, but that was fixed by changing the Scyllas to Yasmin flares.

No it's not,at least not for me,anyways.I always have it on 1.4 regs and I never use overweight builds.Either you have a wrong part somewhere,or your leg tuning is off.

There was no tuning about the legs in your design.

hmm,your right,I forgot that.Lemme double check and see if I listed it right.

I have confirmed that it is exactly how I listed it.1.4 regs and all parts/tuning is accurate.It is not overweight and has an Average Speed rating of 6054,boost duration is 1898.

I only tested your AC in the test mode, but I can still agree that it's quite good. ^^ But it can be a bit better.
Now, as far as I can tell I'm not the best at this, so the changes I've made may well SUCK to you...But I did my best without changing the the frame or weapons, which you'll have chosen according to your play style.

Firstly, remove the SCYLLA, they almost never hit enemy AC's and when they do, they don't do very much so they're just extra weight (although sometimes I use them too just for the extra security).
Now, Switch out these parts and see what'cha think

GN-Sobrero- - - - - GAN01-SS-GL
MB107-Polaris - - - CB-RACHEL
BB103-Scheat - - - BB11-LATONA
SB128-Schedar- - - AB-JUDITH

Now, remove the tuning for firing stability, and do this:

Load : 19
Side booster thrust : 50
Vertical Thrust : 5

And just for final touches:

Change head stabilizer to SOLUH-HEAD-1 and put AM-HOGIRE-OPE02 on the right arm.
Also, so it ain't so bland, change the ALL Optional paint colour to 100 red.

SO! How is it? This is the first time I've tried to change someone else's AC, how'd I do?

Ha, fair enough. I almost forgot to mention, I switched the back weapons around, so you can use both machine guns simultaneously if need be. It's a powerful combination I've used many times before ^^.
