We have had a recent influx of questions about a November preorder Mech and questions surrounding what Mech would be shipping in January. We thought it would be a good idea to share...
The Skye Rangers Brigade has a long tradition of service and loyalty to House Steiner through four long and grueling Succession Wars spanning hundreds of years. Once again civil war threatens the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere. Our Mechwarriors have been called home, allies will be chosen, enemies vanquished, and battles fought on distant worlds under far off suns...the Federation of Skye will now decide its destiny...
Welcome to the Home Base of the Skye Rangers, located on the dark and beautiful planet Summer, within the Federation of Skye.

As some of you know, we are after a new Comms Officer.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to think of a replacement for myself. Thus, I need a volunteer.
Communications Officer (COMM): The Communications Officer (COMM) is the Skye Brigade's Comstar Liaison. The COMM is in responsible charge of the HPG Hyperlinks in the Skye March and ensures their smooth and continuous operation. Loss of such interplanetary comms in the midst of war would be catastrophic to the brigade. The COMM is also resonpisble for maintaining inter-unit communications and the Brigade's VOIP server, Accordingly, the minimum Rank for this Position is Leutnant-General (LT-GEN).
Your responsibilities include: Fixing bugs in the permissions systems, moderating the Teamspeak Server, assigning permissions as required, resetting the server as needed and possibly more.
Please message myself, Guillocuda, if you are interested.
The Hussar was one of the SLDF's most popular and widely-used recon 'Mechs. It was originally conceived and constructed as an infantry support 'Mech, but, as it reached units, its incredible speed naturally lent the Hussar to a scouting role and eventually allowed it to take the place of the majority of light scout vehicles in use at the time. Its excellent communications gear allowed the Hussar to operate deep behind enemy lines, able to report not only enemy movements but also jam their communications and listen in on transmissions between enemy 'Mechs from as far away as thirty-five kilometers.
The Hussar was also the 'Mech that put Newhart Industries on the map when the 'Mech and its primary weapon proved to be reliable and easy to maintain and the SLDF put in several orders for larger 'Mechs from Newhart based on this reputation. Like other 'Mechs from the era, the Hussar saw a loss in capabilities with the fall of the Star League, although the communication system on surviving 'Mechs proved to be quite robust in the hands of good technicians. In 3055, Coventry Metal Works licensed the ability to produce the Hussar, which it did until the Word of Blake attacked Coventry in 3068.
The Hussar has a single weapon on its chassis in a unique turreted mount on the center torso, the Newhart Extended Range Large Laser. While the use of a single weapon to provide defensive capabilities limits the Hussar, the superior reach of the ER Large Laser allows the the 'Mech to engage enemies at a standoff range and its speed allows the Hussar to dictate the range of the engagement, forcing enemies to fight on its terms.
And this has been the Mech of the Week brought to you By the Brigade QMR
I hereby approve the promotions of the following mechwarriors of the Tamar Cavaliers for fulfilling the necessary requirements
PFC Adzcer to Corporal
PFC Rolibar to Corporal
PFC Streakk to Corporal
PFC Poseidonn to Corporal
I would also recommend the promotion of PFC Bloodcat to Senior Corporal
in view of his outstanding activity levels and contributions he has
provided for the Archers for the past month he has been with us.
HPT ender28 has very graciously decided to step down as CCOM of Cornwall
(Australasian) Company in view of his very recent inactivity due to RL
commitments, but will remain as an LCOM with the conferred rank of 1st
I would therefore take the opportunity to approve of SenSGM Ferrous
Idaho's elevation to the position of Cornwall Company's CCOM with the
rank of Hauptmann.
Guillocuda was present for the defeat of the 9th Sword defeat, and can
corroborate that if needed. He has also witnessed our defeat of the 25th
on multiple occasions.
The SJ1 pilots work tirelessly to represent the Rangers brigade as a
whole, and always conduct themselves with the utmost sportsmanship. I
strongly feel that both because of their victories and their gentlemanly
conduct that they merit these awards.

MWOWC EU-Team: today seems to be the last opportunity to grab em prices for participation in the MWOWC. So in case you CAN attend tonight, it would be appreciated highly! I want at least one EON-component as a hanging cockpit item!
You kids with your newfangled toys! Back in my day, we had to push the AC grenades into the enemy armor by mech-hand! Our cockpits never went below 40° Celsius and our lasers went PEEEWW instead of pewpewpewpewpew!
Also important thing for those who didn't know. After this patch you can now take any mech from mechbay into training grounds with unsaved loadout. Bascially allowing you to try out different builds/skills without spending cbills/xp.
Hey William! Nice to have ye back! Can you invite Gri3f3r and CrashSteel into the academy please so they have a bigger bunch of ppl to play with? Pretty nice folks from what I have seen until now. Thx!
Tonight (EU-Time): Team Bravo does MWOWC18 drops to get the games needed for prices! Show up + participate, so we can spread PGI's blessings between as many Rangers as possible. Check the thread in TacCom-Subforum, contact via PM or show up on TS!
