OBLIVION Class Transport Mech . Dawn Forge's newest and most sophisticated mech yet! . Ready to bring total destruction to the battlefield, the OBLIVION Class Transport mech is much more suited for combat than the previously built "Grimlin Class mech". Though it is more lightly armed, the OBLIVION's role is more intended to be for patrolling controlled areas, and for escorting valuable supplies. However it can also be more heavily equipped for frontline combat.
The feet can cover almost any terrain, thanks to both a nylon fiber substance for grip, and magnetic stabilizers for a secure battle stance.
One of Dawn Forge's minor flaws is that the design engineers can never seem to hide the components.
The back of the legs are heavily armored to ensure nothing slows the mech down.
Like most others in the Dawn Forge lineup, the torso offers a, rather large, air intake vent necessary to keep all of the components from overheating and malfunctioning.
The front of the canopy offers the vital protection, crucial to the pilots safety. Like most other Dawn Forge mechs, the OBLIVION utilizes the drive by wire system.
The rear of the mech also contains greeble components, along with the- all important - hoses.
The right side of the mech boasts a, devastating, high powered, 80mm machine gun. This bad boy can "turn an oversized tin can, into a really dented oversized tin can."
The left side of the Oblivion features both a missile rack, and a rail gun. The rail gun has an average range of about 55 miles, but should only be fired in bursts to avoid overheating.
Equipped with four, state of the art, heat-seeking missiles, this mech never misses her target.
When comparing the OBLIVION's cockpit to other's in the Dawn Forge military, you will notice it is much larger than the rest. One of the many perks to piloting this beast.
Some side detailing of the leg area. You can see the 4th Ironclad Division's signature emblem on the hip.

Oh boy, it's finally finished! I set out to build a large mech quite some time ago. In about December I had built the canopy, but I kind of put the project on hold, because I didn't think I'd be able to make a pair of legs to support the "head." I wanted to put my previous Dawn Forge mech, the "Grimlin" to shame, and I think I succeeded; big time! I finished the whole mech about a week ago, after various different feet and canopy designs. I hope this becomes my most popular creation, because I certainly think it is one of my best. Once again thanks to Brian Kescenovitz, for both the amazing theme, and much inspiration!
