    Mid-range slap-happy mech; right here. Firing light PPCs in pairs has always been somewhat worthwhile; and so this build works around the idea of firing off paired LPPC shots over moderate distance; with the twin UACs there to help take advantage of the chaos and punch holes in things when your heat starts getting a little touch too high.

    A couple of tips:
    Despite the overall gain of +1 ton, 2xLPPC and 1xPPC will perform exactly the same but the LPPC generates enough heat to be worse than a single PPC: 10 damage, 10 heat VS 10 damage, 9.5 heat
    A single DHS dissipate 0.15 heat/s, so LPPC are not so worth it unless you have slot / hardpoints restrictions.
    As @Lorgot write early PPC build is overall better, but still too hot IMHO. I would gladly downgrade to standard AC5 (you can't double tap with builds so hot).

    Downgrading to AC5 seems the best way to go... It also reminds me of an old meta build (UAC and PPC).
    Anyway, 4 ton of ammo (bare minimum), better cooling, more sustained dps to keep target's head down. Replace 1 dhs for 1 ton of ammo. AC5 are your main DPS weapon after all
