    Its a little bit hot but with 3 Weapon Groups it should be ok. (LPL left, LPL right and ATMs)
    ATMs for Mid-Longrange and the LPLs for the heavy whoops effect when they came across the hill ;)

    Hey marukarr, welcome to MechSpecs!

    I feel LPL are a bit outclassed by the other options nowadays, unless you have quirks or really no other ways to spend the tonnage. ERLL have superior range (LPL max is only 840, much less than their 600 optimal suggests), HLL has superior damage, per tick and total. LPL have OK DPS, but the cooling isn't good enough to really abuse this DPS advantage, and that's not taking into account they weigh 50% more than the other clan large lasers.

    My proposed change is to take off the ferro fibrous and use the extra space for more DHS and/or HLL, then mount some of the lighter lasers :)

    That also works! ERPPC is nice with ATM12 because it also removes ECM (though with line of sight and targeting changes, ECM doesn't 'need' to be broken per se as of the Tuesday patch). the MPL give some hitscan firepower once you're close and don't have the heat to spare for ERPPCs. removing .5t of ammo and .5t or armor lets you sneak another DHS in there :)
