Upped the difficulty on Battletech and started a new (3rd) career playthrough.

Got by butt kicked. Restarted and again got by butt kicked.

Finally last night on the first mission of a third attempt I got a lucky headshot (this early in the game luck is what gets you headshots) and downs a medium mech. In my other playthroughs I had all sorts of partial mech salvage but never earned a third medium mech. Because of that I was doing increasingly difficult missions (because after a while the 1-2 star missions get boring) with two medium and two light mechs. Not really a good combination.

I have hope for this third attempt. Funny thing is, because I got the mech on my first mission, I have no spare equipment to outfit it. I've never had that happen before!
