They have to have something for heavy long range out of LOS fire support, modern warfare would be next to impossible without it. I know they have the suit version which is stupidly short ranged for what I am looking for. I was thinking of either incorporating the four legged model that someone made and have it be an artillery suit or probably a variant suit for the Storm Surge. Basically I need a battery of guns to sit behind a mountain and fire on a position with calls for fire from a forward observer. The gravity well is contested so no orbital bombardments.

On the small scale we fight our battle on, cadre vs similar sized battles they do not need it, direct fire works fine. On a larger scale artillery is required, especially in mountainous terrain where either walkers cant get up the mountain or simply block the view. Entrenched infantry is hard to move without indirect arcing broad explosive fire especially when they are sending it back at you from positions out of sight behind the lines. And yes counter battery fire is a thing.
Ill use a storm surge with a new different weapon system. I want to hold off on the Tau'nar Supremecy Suit for some bigger scale action since Krieg has both a Dragoon division in Gorgons with back up and a Heavy Tank detachment present as well.
