'Normal' Mech - The Big Guns by MikeTehFox 'Normal' Mech - The Big Guns by MikeTehFox
Ha Ha!

For those who check out the little forum I have on my DA Page you'll see I <3 Cannons that are shoulder/back mounted.

And while it does kinda push this Mech outside the realms of 'Basic Grunt', I have my reasons;

A] this wouldn't be something that would 'actually' happen, 1 cannon with other basic weapons(no missiles) would be pushing the Mech's weight limit, and 2 would certainly go over with with just the cannons, it's still funstion, but well below par in all areas other than firepower.

B] Variety is good, Even if its not standard equipment, its not beyond the realms of possibility that out of a squad of 10 there might be 1 or 2 with a cannon for long range support.

C]I really wanted to give it a shot because I do like them so much, otherwise I'd be waiting will the majority of my KNight Mech was completed to even try making a cannon, adn I wanted to try it before doing it for that Mech.

D] It looks awesome....shutup!

Anyways, a bit more info on it, It doesn't use fancy projectiles, its basically a big sniper rifle. The Muzzle Break on the end greatly resembles that found on the Barret .50Cal Sniper, cause I <3 it so. It does have a mean kickback, so it has some recoil reduction systems built in, but the Frame still takes a good portion of it, on a Normal, you either have to be in a rock steady pose or be an idiot to fire it otherwise. Firing while airborn is an option, but due to the lower strength of the Normal's Thrusters it could tumble the Mech can cause it to 'Totally Bail Hard'.

It can also fold up, thought unlike popular belief it doesn't make it more compact, rather it makes it so its more out of the way, you gotta remember that it's stikking out behind you, but otherwise its fine.

Also in thier pic, on the right you get your first view of the back and a proper view of the split Heels. The Back is rather plain, but I kinda like it like that, its not mean to be fancy all over, as can kinda been seen in the legs a bit too.

Anyways other changes you prolly can't see, hands are slightly scaled up a tiny bit and I worked more on teh gun, but it's not in this pic so tough love! xD

I might do another pose after work tomorrow...

EDIT: Forgot the white background....again! xD

I've been looking for a model for a sniper mech for a game and this seems like it would fit that bill perfectly. Good work!

No, If I had to pick an infantry weapon to compare these to It'd be the Barret .50 Cal Sniper, and thus why it looks like one! xD

Basically they aren't much mnore than large cannons, after all, this is the mass produced model, so nothing too exotic and fancy. Possibly when I do my next Mechs back weapons it'll be a Railgun/Massdriver type weapon.

ah so they're super long-range, like a sniper weapon? That's pretty cool :)

hey, do any of your vehicles have directed-energy weapons by the way?

Not really super long range, but longer than most weapons.

You'll have to be more specific with the type of weapon, when I hear 'Directed-Energy Weapons' I think of setting off a fusion bomb then directing the blast using a Magnetically based barrel.

But I'm wierd like that.

Laser weaponry, particle beams, plasma cannons, etc.

What you just described is quite possibly THE most perfect definition of a "fusion cannon" I've heard so far. I've been wanting to figure out just what a fusion cannon is, and what it does, for so long. I remember playing Descent II and getting the "fusion cannon," but had no idea what it was.

Heh, yeah its the one that makes the most sense to me, I got it from some Sci-fi Novels I have, not sure the author as they are packed away for moving right now.
