Okay here is something, what are the thoughts on tanks (hover or wheeled or tracked) with jump jets on them?

Is a good thing or not?

Looking to see what folks think about this idea.

Can you imagine being the commander who has to counter them?

If i remember right there is a chance for damaging your motive system any time you jump. I do not remember the odds but i think they were higher than that of using a MASC ones. So i never used such vehicles. Should work in special circumstances (ambush/surprise) though.

Due to the risk of motive damage they are only used to by-pass terrain problems.
