Marauder managed heat better than what?

With 2 PPCs, an AC/5 and 2 MedLas, the Marauder was a bit of a heat hog. Unloading both PPCs and walking put you in a heat defecit already, not to mention getting into that sweet spot at 3 hexes where you can unload everything at short range. Do that and you're at 28 heat standing still, sinking only 16. Warhammer was much better managing heat, though with less armor. Marauder-M however was pretty nice, replacing the two PPCs with LLasers, and adding more heat sinks. It could sink 20 heat, generating 24 if it stood still and alpha striked. Much better machine with better range bracketing, and much better as a close-in brawler…

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo The Beast Rampant Supporting Member of TMP wants to know:

So, of the original fourteen 'mechs from the 1984 Battletech boxed set (later redacted, and dubbed "The Unseen" due to IP issues 'cause they were all ripped off from various anime sources), which do you think was best/coolest/whatever?

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this previous poll.
