Crazy8 Posted October 29, 2005 Share Posted October 29, 2005 Let's talk about... The Ronin. Range: 32 RAV: 4 DV: 12 Mov: 10 DA: 2 IA: 1 SA's: Shielding, AOE/2, Hunter Cost: 408 points Role: Battlefield Superiority SyRaM "rival": Hawk 6 Is it worth it? How do you view the Ronin? Does it have a place in your UFF force or is this a watered down version of the Hawk 6? Any good Ronin stories? My thoughts: Looks: I definitely like the sculpt, it's anime-ish but not to overboard (I think the gauss cannons do a good job of balancing the anime out) I also like the pop up missile battery. Not a huge fan of the knee "guard/horn" thingies though. Although I don't think they take anything away from the model. Performance: I really haven't had much luck with the Ronin... BUT I haven't used it a whole lot either. Final Thoughts: This would definitely be my Battfield Superiority CAV of choice if I were a MT fanatic or running an all MT force. However, as far as bang for the buck... I'm not convinced it's a better buy then the Hawk 6. For 15 points cheaper the Hawk 6 gives you an extra missile attack as well as ESM and WSO (that's huge) at the same range and speed. Granted RAV is 1 less but that could be made up in upgrades. I also think the enhanced "Run n Gun" option more then makes up for the lost RAV. Overall I see it as a decent run of the mill Superiority CAV. I think it would be more potent in it's role by replacing the IA with a MA. Rating: 7 out of 10 Legionnaires Comments...?
