The design of the mech is quite reminiscent of the Catapult mech from the mech warrior series though there are a few very glaring differences. First the joint system will be Ball-joint, this allows for a wider range of motion and thought sometimes harder to work with, will make it that much more of a payoff in the end. Second the shoulder mounted missile system- GONE, those things are just begging to get blown off. The itty bitty arms/ legs, these will be bulkier, while this will add weight in the end this will add a ton of durability. The rest of the differences are minor. The foot layout will be different. I plan to make it "army applicable" (because seriously what is a civ gonnna do with a mech?) the back will be able to hold a "backpack" filled with whatever calibur of belt fed ammo they wanna put in there. each "forearm" will have a gun barrel going down the length of it and considering the barrel length this would be VERY accurate. I plan on giving it a "head" not sure why, but I never liked the catapult because it had no head.
