Parrot - X2
This started as a fun idea and I was delighted to discover it actually works pretty well.
The idea first began to form when I encountered an enemy helicopter with a front mounted Areoflak Cannon, Plasma Goliath (asymmetrically) and a bottom mounted Plasma Goliath. At the time I thought it was a waste of cpu.
Seeing the Cpu Update patch notes I got the idea to build a silly glass cannon (I've always liked them) using an Areoflak Cannon, 2 Plasma Goliath and the Power Booster.
I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised to find that with some refining (image 10 is from during the process) this bot performs well and even takes 7 flak hits to be grounded (an 8th would destroy the bot).
- The Areoflak Cannon, Rotor Blades, Electroshields and Plasma Goliath can all absorb damage.
- The Plasma Goliath use damage sinks to have a 66% chance of surviving a rail or plasma shot.
- All components other than the topmost Rotor Blade (and Electroshields) utilize their multiple connections and careful splitting to keep them for as long as possible as can be seen in images 6-9.
I plan on adding more connections and Rotor Blade Assaults as I level toward 150.
As several components don't exist on the RCG Cube manager I'm listing them here (in addition to the already listed ones):
[*] 8 Rod Short
[*] 4 Rod Long
[*] 8 Rod L Shaped
[*] 1 Areoflak Cannon
[*] 1 Power Booster
