This model is still in production for BattleTech, from Iron Wind Metals: link


This is a big tank (41mm long), with the only visible weapons being the triple guns on the turret.

According to the fluff, this is a fusion-powered vehicle with 13 tons of armor and three Gauss Rifles.

My take on it:

Equipment Item                   VSP : BVP     Spaces   Cost

Good stats on that one. The rule for allowing multiple weapons in a turret at 2 times the mass rather than the usual s times cost makes a lot of sense and allows a lot of interesting mountings.
