Default Superflash Model

I'll just put this here.

I don't think that SJG has put any images of Ben's version of this up yet. This is my attempt.

That nose overhang -- I hope there's no rules for Ditches in 6th-ed.

_Superflash_ was overgunned, and underarmored; I could, and did, take it out with _VG1_ designs costing a quarter what that thing did (_Flamberge_; _Iron Horse_, etc.).

Upon playtesting:

WTE-5K

B: Mid | 600|600 | 1,600|1,600 | [13]
C: XH | 600|1,200 | -|- | -|-
S: Hv. | 900|2,100 | -|- | -|-
P: Lg. [2,000 PF] | 2,000|4,100 | 900|2,500 | 5|5
T: 4x PR | 800|4,900 | 200|2,700 | -|-
D: Dr. | 0|4,900 | 150|2,850 | 2|7
W/A: BC [HESH am.] [F] | 6,000|10,900 | 600|3,450 | 4|11
2x SD [Expl. or Inc. ammo] (L) [1 L or R, 1 B] | 1,250|12,150 | 150|3,600 | 2|13
HRSWC [BC] | 2,500|14,650 | 0|3,600 | ---
A: 270 pts. P | 4,320|18,970 | 2,160|5,760 |
[F: 70; L, R, B: 60; T: 2; U: 5] [Acc.: 5; TS: 92.5; HC: 3]

[NOTE: If tire shots are being allowed -- rm. 20 pts. A; add 2x 10-pt. WH [F], 2x 10-pt. WG [B]; +$80]

And this was the *minimum* for this Division in NOVA; imagine this thing with enough add-ons to bring it to Div. 40....

2-3 hits to any of the four main facings, and the _Superflash_ disappears in one.

(I'd show you the D40 gasburner Pickup, but.... >:) )

I bet in the Car Wars universe some lucky son or daughter will inherit the Superflash from their father. Give me some background - why was it created? Is it a courier or an arena fighter? Does the person who drives it have a family?
A little role play goes a long way! :-)

Well, the _VG1_ _Superflash_ was designed for the now-defunct "Unlimited" class. With no fewer than three lasers (plus Cyberlinks!), and embarrassingly-weak armor, it was a "let's get this over with" design. It was defeated by an unspecified design with somewhat less firepower, but *much* better armor (for my part: I'm picturing an upgraded _Chameleon_, or similar two-seater).

6-ed. mechanics seem to lend itself to the "sledgehammer on eggshell" ethos.

I found the Superflash's theme song. :)
The music video brings us the spirit of Car Wars ...
