My second Gundam experiment. The AH-1 is almost like the heavy artillery of space battles.
About this creation
The AH-1 Spacer! For lack of a better name, I named this mecha "Spacer." Other recommendations are welcome. This mecha is proportioned and received weaponry primarily for space battles. It is more streamlined than the AG-1 and has attached to it the AFB-2. The AFB-2 is supersized, and has 4 HBE-12 Halberd weapons attached to it, which can move and swivel, allowing for for flight.
The AH-1 may carry the equivalent to a heavily armed star fighter in weaponry, but this by no means means that it cannot maneuver as well as other space mecha. This also doesn't mean that it is as heavily armored as heavy mecha either.
Notice the many thrusters in the armor. I pride myself in the placement of these special thrusters, 1 on each leg, knee, and shoulder of this mecha. These special thrusters were modeled after the look of the MSZ-008 Z II.
A backview of the AH-1. Most of it's thrusters are hidden by the Halberd weapons as the AFB-2 is in standby mode.
I did a comparison shot between the AG-1 and AH-1. The AH-1 is shorter, at 21 bricks tall.
The AH-1 firing all of it's weapons at once. The Halberds are quite frightening and cause most spacecraft and mecha to run (fly?) away before they are disintegrated. But what most mecha don't realize is that the AH-1 does NOT carry a sword. The sword like weapon it carries is the NEX-H500. The AH-1 is useless in close combat, so it's weapons were designed to keep other mecha away.
The AH-1 in flight mode. The Halberds can be swiveled to the front. The AFB-2 has separate fuel from the rest of the mecha. Also, 4 of the special thrusters that are attached to the AH-1 armor have their own fuel also. The three thrusters that look like feathers on the back of a bird have fuel that runs threw (through?) it all the way to the tips of the "feathers."
The AH-1 is only the first of the AH-series. Prototypes for the others are pictured below.
AH-2 Atmos, for Atmospheric flight.
The AH-3. I still haven't figured out a name for this mecha. Suggestions are welcome. For a description, this mecha is a lot like an infantry trooper and is easily mass produced. THe armor that is attached to it is called Tempor, an amalgam of Temporary and armor. This armor can be shed for more freedom of movement, or not attached at all to turn the AH-3 into a cannon fodder mecha.
Alternate color schemes for the AH-1. I call this one "Dragonoir."
I call this one "Bumblebee." (Transformers, more than meets the eye!)
The AH-1 Production colors.
The LDD file is attached.
Let me know if there are any problems or revisions to be made to this mech.
