Caprice ACCO Light Trooper Mount Preview

Here’s what they had to say on this neat little addition to the game that looks rather cool as a smaller piece of battlefield technology…

“While working on the new edition of the Heavy Gear Blitz rules, we realized that Caprice needed a small low cost trooper mount to counter opposing factions. So the Acco was designed around the idea of having a Mount about the same size as a Gear with light weapons. The cockpit area in the front of the mount is just a bit smaller than a Hunters, with hatch for the pilot enter at the top. Behind the pilot is the iconic dome covering, on all Caprice Mount engines, and there are hard points on each side to attach the weapons systems. The standard Acco has a medium machine gun in the front, light rocket pack on the left, and light autocannon on the right. It will also have two variants; one with a light frag cannon and the other with a light flamer.”
