This is the definitive version of the Claymore series Combat Armor (if this one could be called “Armor” and not “Mech”). For a while the Mk II was my favorite because of the unique features it had (the cockpit mostly). But as I looked at it more and more the joints and structure appeared too flimsy so I built the HWV.









Right off the bat this version is far larger, more heavily armed, armored and much more heavily reinforced than both previous versions put together.









Though not as flexible as the former iterations the shoulder and leg joints have all been doubled up and the lateral hinges have been redone to the point of having to dismantle the back to get them to come apart, whereas with the Mk II you could take apart just by pulling on the limbs.









The HWV may still have the three piece cockpit but the sides and front have been thickened dramatically increasing protection. You’ll also notice there are no controls inside control has been delegated to a Mass-Neuro-Interface Computer, its backup, and a HUD projected inside the pilot’s helmet resulting in an almost body like control method.








































Another feature new to the design is the shoulder mounted MAC (magnetically accelerated cannon or “rail gun”). This new hard hitter is the primary long distance weapon of the HVW and launches super hardened Depleted Uranium/Steel alloy darts (about 12 inches in length) at speeds of up to 3,200 meters per second (Approx 10,400 fps) and an accurate distance of 15.5 km (Approx 9.5 miles). Control is slaved to the pilots eyes (not the helmet) through the MNIC. CREDIT GOES TO MIKE LUCIO AND HIS MK IV COMBAT MECH AS INSPIRATION FOR THIS WEAPON'S INCLUSION.










The little red area above the barrel is a hi-def digi-eye that can project its sight directly into the pilot’s helmet. Coupled with the dynamic arm and servos the MAC provides a periscope function, increasing stealth potential and thus pilot protection.





























Because of the restructure of the hips and the inclusion of rotating ankles, this version can go to a full kneel and remain upright.









































It snowed recently and with the color scheme taking a picture outside seemed like a good idea.

PLEASE RATE AND REVIEW =)

i think you shouldn't have it as mark 3, rather just a heavy variant like cars have (for example) a standard version then an estate version etc how about: claymore HWV (heavy weapons variant) also, i like how its bulky but also really flexible.

Nice! Barely recognizable as a Claymore (not a bad thing)! I like the MAC cannon addition. I really wish I could post my version of the Mk. II! Let me know if you email is up and I'll send you some pics. Thanks for thje great reviews too! Peace - Patrick
