Description[ | ]

A FedSuns favorite, the Vulcans 5T variant dumps the standard model’s AC2 and beef up its medium-to-close firepower and defenses. It's generally considered to be “better” than the 2T, but it's also harder to come by.

Loadout[ | ]

The Vulcan VL-5T is a 40 ton mech with 7.94 tons remaining after full armor. It has a max movement of 165m and can equip up to six jump jets, making it faster than most medium mechs except the Assassin and Cicada. It has a CQC Suite in its center torso which grants the mech +10 to melee defense as well as +20% to weapon range.

Strategy[ | ]

Get as close as possible and put all those support weapons to good use. However considering the Vulcan is so lightly armored I wouldn't recommend using a pilot you care about.
