Number five out of five in a series of models for :iconluckyanov: 

Here it is, the final model on the list! The 70 ton Grasshopper, armed with an oddly placed five-tube missile launcher, four medium lasers, and a center mounted large laser.

It was a bit of a challenge to change this one up and yet still make it recognizable for the design that it represents. Among my reference images were the different way artists depicted the 'mech, as well as using images of actual insects (notably the American Grasshopper). A lot of the physical aspects from the leaf-munching bug were incorporated into this model as detail.
