I really think there's no point in comparing a Tsyklon with a pticher to a zero with a deployable repeater. That's very much a "why not both?" situation. They don't really compete with each other. Tsyklon with moderator pitcher is a bit more of a comparison because they compete for fireteam slots at least. However, on the topic of the chaksa, I still don't like this addition. I mean, a BS15 Burst 3 DAM 15 Autocannon is good on the active turn, probably better than anything else in the sectorial in terms of raw damage output, but that's assuming chaksas will be able to form a full core and we don't know that. And yes, it is definetely not better than a linked ML in ARO.
