Then once they are Close enough Push into them and use the Trebuchets maneuverability to Cause Chaos & Confusion While Laying Down A lot of Hurt on the enemy. you are not a Tank so Standing Still or overheating is Not an Option.

Tactics -The Trebuchet 7k Does not Operate as well in the Brawler/Skirmisher Type as the other Variants, Instead it works better in a Front line Fighter type Role. Begin the battle With The Assault and heavy Class mechs on the Front line, With its two at a Time Missile bays and laser/Ballistic Weapons it is better at pinpoint Damage. Move with the group Singling out medium/heavy Mechs and Taking there armor out with your Lasers/Missiles and Finally use your Machine Guns to Finish there Internals, Being a medium you can Take out Anyone who Bugs out of the fight which the Heavies and Assaults are to Slow to stop. This Variant shows Exactly what the Medium mech was Made for.
