Skirmisher Mech by flyingdebris Skirmisher Mech by flyingdebris
I wanted to design a relatively light mecha type vehicle that was thin and agile, armed with weapons that would allow it to effectively fight infantry, light vehicles, other mecha of around its size, and low atltitude VTOL craft.

The pilot rides in a detachable armored pod that is attached to the back.

The right pod has an armored missle launcher holding 3 missles ready and 12 more in reserve. The launcher is able to fire multiple types of missles depending on what it was loaded with prior to deployment

on the nose pod is a 25mm vulcan cannon and a drum of 2600 caseless rounds. In case of a fall or collision, the nose pod and some of the more sensitive sensor gear will retract, sliding backwards under the protuding fusilage.

on the left pod is an 85mm autocannon with 120 rounds

The long spindly arms are normally kept folded at the sides when not in combat. Their main use is prop up the rest of the mech in case of a fall, to prevent a fall, to pick up important objects, or for heavy lifting.

The legs are a unique in that they have two modes of operation. The midlegs can be locked under the thighs for a shorter profile and more stability at the cost of speed (as is evident in the picture) or they can be unfolded for greater agility and speed, but creating a taller target and causing less stability.

The entire setup is controlled by a mixture of artificial intelligences, pilot neural impulses, and manual controls.

I like it how all your mechs have little arms to grab things, it makes them really unique.

I like this piece because it looks rough and tough, and like something that would actually be used. Nice work.

The muscle wire could be a mixture of Nickle and Titanium (Nitinol) when heated by electric current the wire gets shorter with enough power for movment.

This is a pretty great picture, it caught my eye over other mech pics because of the nice action pose. It really gives a sense of motion and general feel of how the mech would be like in real life.

i know your going for a light design and all but the legs need to be bigger to support the guns and pod at the top possibly add a large shifting gear that can stabilize the legs giving it better weight distribuation

On the effectiveness of a real mech on the battlefeild, the biggest problem is now how big or heavy they are, but, how tall they are. Something the height of a five story building skylines itself horribly. (Can you say "inferno launcher" boys and girls?)The lower the machine is the more cover it can hide behind. If anyone remembers Starseige, the mecha on that game are about the right height to be somewhat survivable.

Cool design very well rendered. But, as an old MechWarrior fan I've got to add my two dimes. (two cents with inflation.) The arms have already been addressed, but I see one major weakness that hasn't been addressed. The feet. Just a suggestion, but, I think the toes need to be wider. If they are there to stabalize a multi-ton machine on the move they just aren't big enough. The only other thing I'd say is that the hip joints need better armor. Those 4 exposed rods (presumably for attitude control on the upper legs) would go on the first auto-cannon burst.
