Long story short, somebody in our group wants to use a bear as his primary combat morph. In addition, somebody else had the bright idea of having his infolife ego ghostride onto a synthmorph equipped with funnels (for those of you who aren't giant robot fans, autonomous wirelessly-controlled weapon drones) and controlling those to make himself useful in combat. Think a polar bear + Nu Gundam. So then:
New basic morph: Giant Frakking Space-Bear
Implants: Basic Bio-Mods, Basic Mesh Inserts, Carapace Armor, Cortical Stack, Enhanced Respiration, Temperature Tolerance
APT Max: 30
Wound Threshold 8
Advantages: Claw Attack (DV 2d10 + 2), +10 SOM, +5 REF, +5 to one other apititude of the player's choice, +10 Fray.

Weapon Mount (Dorsal turret, swiveling) (moderate)
4x Funnel Mount / Recharger (low)
Basic Weapon Systems:
1x Smartlinked Gyromounted Plasma Rifle, Turret Mounted (2x moderate, 1x expensive)
+ Coaxial Extended Magazine Smart Magazine Imaging Scoped Heavy Slugthrower Pistol (3x low, 1x moderate)
4x Rail Sniper Rifles (high) for funnels.
Other Standard Equipment
4x Fin Funnels (expensive)
New Equipment: Fin Funnel [Expensive]

Disadvantage: Rechargeable batteries capable 90-second independent operational time and weapons functions. Recharges in 30 seconds.
117 CP for ego-occupant, 62 of which counts towards the credit cap.
84 CP for funnel operator, all in creds.
For a truly astounding cost, you and your infolife partner can have equally astounding firepower!
Okay, seriously, though. We haven't been through the rules all that carefully, so can anybody spot any serious rules issues with this lashup? Yes, we realize that weapon mounts aren't allowed to be on biomorphs RAW, but decided to handwave it as mounted into the wired carapace of the bear. Also, comments and advice on taking the CP cost below 200? In particular, a less clunky way of implementing funnels would be cool.
