A Heavy Artillery Archeo Genis Mech, using anti structure, airship, and vehicle weaponry.
About this creation
W00000t biggest bionicle piece creation ive done to date! :D
The 357 is a heavy artillery mech made using archeo genis technology, it uses a variety of weaponry, and is especially effective against structures, enemy vehicles, and enemy slow moving aircraft. They usually preform in groups of three or more along with the main army. These mechs are piloted remotely and can also run using an AI if necessary. The 357 works its best on flat plans, hills, and rural areas.
The head has one eye which transfers to the pilot, and is also used by the AI, it has heavy armor plating on the top of it to protect it from aerial enemies and mortar fire. The head does not house the AI, it is housed in the main body of the 357.
The mech is very heavy, so the feet are spread out to attempt a "snowshoe" effect
The 357 has a large powerful claw used for picking up enemy mechs, vehicles, and ripping down large buildings.
uber tail ^_^ used for sweeping through infantry and penetrating low vehicles and mechs
The claw can curl up and pack a mean punch
Canon, can fire shotgun like shells, mortar, piercing, emp, or explosive piercing. Thats a lot of rounds. Also has a blade for smashing things that get to close
The main cannon!
Pinpoint armor piercing beams, Primarily anti air, but can also be used to pinpoint take out infantry, pilots of mechs and aircraft with out damaging the vehicle, and burning through enemy barricades.
MAC Magnetic Accelerator Cannon, fires rounds using extreme magnetic pressure (note, ur thinking of MASS accelerator cannon, this is different. If you have heard of this before, i didnt know that it exists, and still count this as my own thing.) The magnets squeeze the rounds, launching them at extreme speeds, like squeezing a wet seed between your fingers, times 100. This is great for taking out enemy airships, being so large and relatively slow, and also for destroying large mechs and buildings. The round can be explosive, but it can be dangerous to use them, being exposed to so much pressure. It can also destroy fighters, bombers, and faster craft. The on board AI targets, compensates for time and speed, gets into position, and fires, ripping a hole or annihilating the craft.
It can aim down (near suicidal range)
or completely backwards, and all angles in between
Lets remove that armor shall we? (note: to protect the AI, which is made out of core cells btw, in the center of the mech, the silver armor plating is made with Bionite cells, when repaired the whole plate is replaced)
Remove more armor
Remove more armor
Legs, sturdy. At first the feet were the shoulder armor, cuz it looked cool, then i wanted to make the mech bigger, then the legs looked to small, and i had to come up with another design. Took me a while, but it was worth it and i am satisfied with how it came out
The remote control stasis pod. No, it is not a nuero stasis conecion pod. Initial test of connecting a pilot to a mech with more than four limbs dint turn out well. Either both right and left legs would move simultaneously, arm movement would be replaced with legs, or the pilots brain would "overheat". More studies are being done. This is just a pod that makes piloting easier and gives the pilot the feel of being in a mech. The pod also keeps the pilot calm and collected, improving efficiency. The pilot can manual switch to AI or it happens automatically when the pilot leaves the pod, or the mech loses connection. The pods are kept on larger starships or in secure facilities planet side. They would usually be seen along rows of other pods, but for this showing only one is being viewed. The pod has core cells that connect to the core cells in the mech, but every pod is specifically connected to one mech, and cannot be switched to pilot another mech unless serviced and the core cells in the pod are switched out with the new cells used in the new mech.
every creation has to have grebbles! :D unrealistic place you say? well! um.. i actually have no comeback for that.. moving on!
Here is a hover chair that engineers and medics sit in to watch and observe the pilots and the pods to make sure they are working at full efficiency
Doctor brown, say hi to the general public! Dont you just love military propaganda?
A highly unconventional design to say the least! It looks like an offshoot of "Alien" with the upper torso and tail/limb appendage. I also like the detail you put into the neural pod link. Very "Avatar-ish" as well. Now we just need to wait and see who else posts their MOC for judging.
