Commissioned battlemech.  I know that the E-resistant armor likely wouldn't actually be straight up chrome.  Given that it applies to all energy, not just laser fire.  But myself and the commissioner agree that chrome is bettah:D  If you're looking for weapons you won't find any.  She's intended as a mobile C3 lynchpin C+C machine with high battlefield resilience.

Yes, I think the Shieldmaiden is one of your best works yet. She's so foxy (speaking purely mech here ofc ;) ).
As for the mech, it is a pure specialist. Keep that C3 company online, offer ECM support if necessary, bring a tactical officer into the field for better unit cohesion and coordination (via cockpit command console) by evading enemy fire as well as possible and if it gets hit, hope that that large shield and good amount of laser reflective armor are enough to keep it alive.

Any chance we could see stats for this baby?

It can be done without an XL gyro by using Endo Steel rather than Endo Composite, but then it can't have that right hand and lower arm activator, making it look rather weird. So... aesthetics before performance :P

Extra heat sinks in the shield?

That is remarkably similar to what I thought. My guess was a heavy though, and lacked the supercharger. ThanksClap

Sure, no weapons. But I mean, I doubt anyone would want to get their cockpit bashed in by that shield.
