Ogre transport

This bad boy appeared on my gaming table last week. It's a Battletech mini (the O-66 "Oppie" Hazardous Material Recovery Vehicle), but it also makes a great tow truck for my games of Ogre.
As the photos show, this vehicle can fit an Ogre Mark III on its flatbed, or several smaller vehicles. In games, I give it the tread units of a Mark III, and two antipersonnel weapons for a little bit of protection.
It can also carry cargo pallets (my Ogreverse backronym for the Oppie is that it stands for Oversized Pallet Parcel Engineering vehicle), which it did in my most recent Ogre game. While I'm not a fan of most Battletech vehicles, there are a few that work great for other sci fi games. Any other BT non-mech casting that y'all can recommend?

That's rather neat!

That's an amazing piece of equipment.
Are you going to include a "Dismount" rule?

That pretty darned cool! Is it a problem to be fascinated by support vehicles? They typically don't have combat values.

Thanks, y'all!

Don, you need to get down here for some Ogre gaming.

Major, since the transport is for Ogres that have been immobilized, I don't see a dismount being much use. :)

Holdfast, nothing wrong with liking support vehicles. I try to add some to all my scenarios.
