Urvanian Union Mech by Shimmering-Sword Urvanian Union Mech by Shimmering-Sword
Not the most exciting mech design, but I have this publicly posted on my Patreon, so thought I'd post it here too.

This mech was in service with Urvanian Union forces while they defended themselves against revolutionaries.
Several configurations are available, but this particular unit is armed with a cannon in one arm, and anti armor missiles in the other shoulder.
Many of these and other vehicles fell into rebel control, with defecting pilots or Udziman proxy combatants aiding in their use.

Fairly realistic as far as realistic bipedals go, better than BT designs. Like the rubber/mesh sealing around the actuators

Remember, autocannons in most 'Mech-based fiction keep their ammo boxes in primary body of the 'Mech around the shoulder and the ammo belt goes through the arm into the Autocannon. In this case, I think the ammo is kept in the arm just above the cannon.

Love this. When I first saw it (before scrolling down to the legs) I was thinking simplified Man O' War/Gargoyle. Anyway, sometimes less is more. Great work Shimm. =)

It looks like all the mech you'd need for COIN unless the insurgents have Battlemechs of their own.

Not a lot of dakka, but plenty precise. May even be better-suited as a sniper unit.

Nice work! I wonder how you'd rework the Fafnir from battletech.

looks surprisingly realistic by modern standards. I've also always loved the more "mobile turret" style rather than the popular "humanoid robot" style.

Looks sturdy and simple enough to use with minimal training. Like a turret with legs.

Yep. Not too slow either, it really only lacks in any big firepower.

I'll take utility and survivability over beauty and grace on the battlefield.

For this ones size it's decently armored, though it's rather small for a mech in my setting. Can certainly afford a bunch of them though.

Survivability at a reasonalble expense is a good thing.

I like these utilitarian designs.

Just like the crazy russian says in The 9th Company: "See that tank, beautiful isn't it? Such power, and nothing unnecessary, not one line"

I just love these simpler "trooper" mechs.

If you make every mech special, then none of them are too special :)
