That's amazing. You're amazing. Holy shit.

I love your stuff. I love the mech designs in MWO/BTech. Keep on truckin', good sir.

Ive always wondered why there haven't been more quadruped mech designs like this. Its has a much lower profile then a biped, can easily crouch to have the profile of a traditional tank, and carry heavier weapons then any bipedal mech could on its back.

Is this from BattleTech? I could swear there was a Mech in it with the same name.

it looks like a modified version of it
caspatrofaal's avatar
probably not, on a sidenote: mechwarrior and battletech share the same universe.

That looks like a Large Laser and pair of Guass rifles for armament.

I noticed. I actually am working on a TRO style entry for this one.

There is an IS version of it, I made it an 85 ton assault mech.

Then here is the IIC version of it

Not sure if you made something similar to it or not.

Not quite as detailed as I lay my entries out a bit different from actual TRO style (mostly just rough data in a list with a description). That said the assault weight of 85 tons is right on the mark for what I chose.

Its not too heavy, but with dual Gauss as a quad, which already have smaller pod space, higher tonnage made more since, as higher tonnage = more space generally. Not always the case of course. That said I didn't make it IS, I made it Clan, being as I am a Nova Cat at heart. So 2 M-7 Gauss Rifles. 2 ER Larges and 2 Medium pulses. Got a few different variants laying around as well

Absolutely gorgeous work!  Now if only the Circus would open. Then some beauties like the Stalking Spider (or, for Juodas, the Scorpion) could see the sunlight for once. :\

I saw this and I thought: "Quads coming to MWO!"

And them I saw the "Design for Chris Ings".. :(

the problem with quads is that unlike bipedal mechs, the terrain would actually influence how high or low they could aim by virtue of their horizontal arrangement.  which would cause no shortage of complications

And here I was thinking of how the Swedish S-Tank could change the elevation of its gun by adjusting its tracks. Stable platform for artillery and missiles I guess.
Odanan's avatar
You are right. I didn't thought about that... :/

That looks like a redesign for MWO, stylewise.
Since MWO does not have melee combat, they could do quadruped mechs...
