Mechanized Walker Mk1

The unexpected revelation of the British engineered Mechanized Walker Mk1 at the Paris World Fair of 1889 startled governments all over the world. Officially developed by the civilian Cardwell Committee for Technical Advancements, the extraordinary machine was introduced as a technology demonstrator, which would one day be able to perform complex tasks in difficult terrain for the benefit of all mankind. It soon became apparent though, that the Mk1 was actually part of a British effort to drastically modernize the Royal Army and create a military force superior to all in existence.

The true purpose of the revelation at the world fair was to demonstrate technological supremacy in order to discourage other world powers to engage in armed conflict with the British Empire. The British scheme soon backfired though, as it triggered German and French engineers to develop their own versions of the Mechanized Walker. Within years, many standing armies were equipped with the new machines.

I really really like the tea-room style cockpit. I can imagine myself slurping a coffee with my feet up on the dash, this thing walking me to work. Excellent design! A rare steampunk concept that looks....well like it would work...
