About this creation
Built to withstand a tank round (everywhere except the head.) i know Mandatory arbitration doesn't like "mechs" buti originally thought that the contest this was for was hardsuits all the way, with a round one topic of Mandatory Arbitration. i was halfway done before realizing this, and it looked good so far, so i went with it.
the arms and legs have a very good (but not perfect) range of motion.
the M12-15 pictured is armed with a pair of dual heavy machineguns, as well as a shoulder mounted grenade launcher. however, quick detachment and interchangeable modules means this hardsuit can be rapidly reconfigured to fit almost any combat situation.
here, we see the back, and the small vent that keeps everything from overheating.
we can also see that the "hips" can turn for more maneuverability.
