For the record, this originated from a comment that CEO Luis Camargo left on the Hornet. anyways, onto the MOC.
The Berserker is one of the more powerful mechs around in the AEGAKS line. It is lightly armed, heavily armored, and has gaint frontal smashin' claws. It is usually used for intimidation or infantry/light vehicle destruction. The 1104 is also used for distraction, and drawing enemy fire, as it's large amount of armor makes it a resillient target, and it's color is very eye-catching.
The Berserker's pilot block has an extra reserve fuel supply for making "beserk" charges across the battlefield. Very deadly when used correctly (I'm envisioning something like that charge powerup in Dead Ops Arcade.) the Pilot"s name is Leonard Bostrikov, an American-born Russian who has an iron will, no sense of humor, and a tendency to act in "ways most reckless" (i.e. kill everything by ramming it with the Desolator ). He was tranfered ito this more "melee-oriented" AEGAKS, if you will.
The Frame without the block. The socket is very angular, as the block fits in as a wedge, rather than an attachment on top.
This picture shows the Double-Railgun. It fires 2 massive lasers, independently or in sync, at any target larger than 50-meters in length, width, or depth. The cannon has an auto-lock system which can track any target with said dimensions. However, it's not like the lasers are remote controlled, they travel in a straight line after they are released. However, the Berserker's targeting computer can track speed, so as long as the target moves in a straight line, a direct hit is guaranteed.
The anti-vehicle missles. work for air and land, although their position above the cockpit block is less than practical for ground targeting. They are mostly used for distraction, as they intentionally leave an enourmous smoke trail behind them.
Stompsums. (Ribbits M. is really influencing my word choice). These bad boys are actually tremor-inducers. explanation follows picture.
A better view of the tremor inducers. As you can see, I'm white. the grey bits pound down on contact, and create huge tremors. (Well, not that huge.) Leonard decided to fancy his mech up, so he put gold leaf on the big guy's toes.
The head, sensory pack, camera, whatever. The pilot block position is more than impractical for viewing the ground, so the head was placed in a more convinient location. The situation works out prety well, too because anti-air usually required more human reflexes. (NEVER let AI drive a falcon in Halo. NEVER.)
The block and "thighs", as I have named them.
The back legs. These are really just for support, the front legs do all of the motor work. However, the mech can support itself on 2 if standing up, and does have to rely on the back legs for jumping, which is why they have huge toes. Now that I think about it, I should have given this thing inverted black cheese slopes on the toes. Krap.
Butt shot. The butt contains some of the only black on the whole thing, besides the toes. By the way, what is the opinion on those "grate" tiles? My friend hates 'em.
JUMP! (see what I mean about the inconvenient pilot block?)
Hope you liked it! Remember, I like CONstructive criticisim, not DEstructive criticisim. please rate, and criticise in a constructive manner. And don't forget to feed the narwhal.
Sorry, Max. I've had to randomly select one of your MOCs to add a Comment - but it seems all your Pics are broken. Literally, ALL. Even the thumbs on the Index page. Would love to give you a fair review but... guess it'll have to wait. Anyway, Cheers~
Do you mean my comment about yellow mechs? I love yellow mechs, though i have a few mech pieces in this color, I should have bought the Assault Tiger when I had chance... About the creation, very original idea, Everything perfect but the rear legs that seems a bit odd. But don't worry, I loved it!
Awesome work on this. I think something this neat calls for a better photography setup... rest yoru camera on something, use the macro setting, and try to keep the sheet you're using as smooth and un-wrinkled as possible (or use white posterboard instead).
This thing is beastly. I love the design of the stomping feet but I feel the rear feet got a little left out. Sure they're mainly for support and there are no cool features, but they could be a little more finished looking.
What a knuckle dragger! Fantastic design from you once again, especially unorthodox design. I see you've taken to the "anything goes" frame design. This will definitely send them packing. By the way, making this specificly a decoy unit is rather unique. Fantastic work! ^Blub^
If I had made a full-scale pilot block, I could claim that the whole reversed pilot block idea, but, I was told my mini AEGAKS weren't AEGAKS, so that's when I made Z.E.P.H.Y.R. and used my original AEGAKS models and simply updated the pages.
