So, I had a stupid idea last night, why not make INCREDIBLY heavy miniature mechs (100+KG), which have a preset loadout, and have controllable turns.
Examples: (Names would be for a heat variant, since I can think of those more)
“Burning Terrapin” Heavy damage low mobility deployer, only one turn per rotation
“Micro Inferno” Balanced mobility and damage, Two turns per rotation
“Blazing Ostrich” Low damage High Mobility (same mobility as the Burning Terrapin, but has 3 turns) medium-high Elemental Damage
These would fit into the drone slot, and replace a drone.
