The clan mechs have been spending hours in the sun baking? We know that there is only 1 mech unaccounted for during this battle (the one that captured the strikers). What were they doing? Fighting Cero and Kiele? Walking in Circles?
Tybus says all he has is a lance of 5 mechs, yet he only sends 3 to the trap.
(After seeing Val's mech piloting)
Hawkins: "That was the craziest display of reckless mech jockeying I've ever seen."
Adam and Rachel: "That's our man!"
(Looking at Tybus's casino)
Hawkins: "Tybus…why do the biggest crooks always stick their names on buildings?"
