Designed around a well rounded spread of weaponry, the Perseus HBM has been designed to withstand long periods serving on the front-lines of armed conflict.
About this creation
Designed with the intention of being deployed directly to the front-lines of mech-warfare, the Perseus HBM sports a heavy chassis capable of carrying a small armory's worth of weaponry. The Perseus is a humanoid-style bipedal configuration allowing a great deal of stability, ground clearance and mobility for a mech of its size. The Perseus boasts an impressive array of weapon systems in addition to thick reactive armor at the expensive of speed.
The shown variant currently mounts the Stalker Mk. II weapons along with an ARROW IV missile artillery atop it's left shoulder directly above CASE ammunition storage. The torso houses two small LBX/AC-2 shotcannons as well as two .50BMG machine guns for anti-infantry and last resort mech-to-mech combat. Also shown is the optical enhancement module mounted directly right of the ARROW IV system. The Perseus HBM is capable of mounting various different weapon systems, with alternate configurations sporting a Gauss rifle and ER PPC beam weapon along with and updated ARROW IV pod, all at the expense of speed.
Pilots of the Perseus HBM sit inside of a reinforced cockpit positioned in the right torso. The hatch and surrounding hull area is inset to the surrounding armor providing additional protection from heavy arms fire.
Currently I have not taken photos of the Perseus sporting its own arm based weapons, but I assure you that they actually do exist in addition to other weapons that can be mounted on the torso! There are still some kinks with the design I am still working out as well. Updates to follow.

Nice work, some more pictures would be great. The legs look a little locked up, do they have a good range of motion?
I'm still working out the kinks in the legs, but currently this model is a stand-only deal. It supports itself well, but due to low ankle flexibility I haven't been able to give it that "walking" look my other mech's boast.
Wow! That is one beefy mech! I love the design of this, especially the legs and cockpit. My only (minor) suggestion would be to extend out the arm cannons forward a bit to make it look better-proportioned. Also, you need more detail pics, man:)
