Commissioned mech.  Done following the path of the Ryoken skinwalker, with different armor providing a different look.

Are these Skinwalkers using Hardened armor or something?

Well it's two fold far as i know.  It's ferro-lamellar as well as the interface armor system, where the pilot is essentially a clan Russian nesting doll.  Pilot in an elemental, inside a mech.

Mostly it's an excuse to alter their looks a bit.  Though the interface system does pretty much negate the need for open canopies, so that area does tend to get armored up and toughened.

Interface cockpits. Thus, no need for windows, or gyros, and the pilot is protected inside a PA(L) suit as well when they eject. Effectively it makes it look like they're drones, with solid armor everywhere.

Well that sounds pretty cool.
