Very interesting I have been thinking of a good quadruplet mech designs that looks bulky that look awesome and now I have a good reference in how to consider design them.

Just formed a mental image of that main gun firing, the entire beast sinks back on its legs and slowly rises back to full height...gasses from the firing rising from the muzzle and vents under its "jowls" ..somewhere in the distance a building or bunker ceases to exist...if I can quickly form a very vivid image of it in action...ya did good.

......... Y'know, it's really quite impressive that you can design a vehicle *that* big and *still make me go "... No, you actually look too light for a gun that big, I think you'll tip over backwards if you fire that huge friggin thing." XD

Unless the gun is actually an electromagnetic rail and doesn't actually causes recoil. 
NecroTechno's avatar
Are railguns recoilless? Can't recall ever hearing that, but then I've never seen even a small one fired- 
emersontung's avatar
Hmm, had to look it up myself.
So the amount of recoil would be the same as a conventional cannon, but it's spread out with smaller force over a longer period of time vs a strong instantaneous recoil in a conventional gun.

Extremely badass. Is the main cannon conventional, or some sort of electronically-assisted supergun?
emersontung's avatar
Right on. The main gun is basically an electromagnet-powered railgun.

Feel like this would be built by your equivalent of the ottoman empire.
