The mass-produced Mobile Core unit of the Eurasia Federation.
About this creation
The Zimnmj Cyplenok (formerly designated as SMC-001T and known as the "Zim" by other nations) is a mass-produced Mobile Core unit first used by the Neo-Soviet Union in the early 23rd Century AD. Its low production cost and high mobility made it popular by both the government and its pilots. The Invasion of Europe, which was spearheaded by these Mobile Cores, led to the dissolving of the United Nations and the formation of the Eurasia Federation and other superpower nations.
Dual-Barrelled 12.7x108mm Heavy Machine Gun (Internal Belt Fed)
4-Shot 68mm Rocket Launcher
1x 7.62x39mm Anti-Personnel Turret
The power unit of the Zimnmj. Although it can operate for an extended period of time, it does need recharging through the use of external recharge stations.
The legs of the MC in detail.
The heavy machine gun. The ammunition is stored internally. Expended brass is expelled through the bottom of the assembly.
The rockets are loaded from the front, and locked into place on the launcher's rear.
Unarmored and lightly armored targets are the main reason the Anti-Personnel Turret was installed. This gives the Zimnmj defense against dismounted infantry and small vehicles that are able to make it close to the MC.

The name "Zimnmj Cyplenok" is the rough Russian translation for "Winter Chicken." The name originates from it being Russian in origin, hence "Winter," and the reverse-knee legs, thus "Chicken." If anyone knows a more accurate translation, please share!
