Real world mechs?


Any MechAssault fan should appreciate this 12′ “robot” coming out of Japan.  How much longer until Jump Jets, Warhammer missiles and heat sinks are added?

    DAMN THIS IS CRAZY I THINK THEY COULD SATRT TO MASS PRODUCE THESE MECH’S OR SHOULD I SAY EXOSKELITONS THOSE COULD BE VERY USEFUL.

    Alls we need to do now is cover its body with tank armor, put an autocannon on his left shoulder, a missile pod on his back, a railgun on his right shoulder, a plasma cannon in his right hand and a minigun in his left hand not to mention make it 20 feet tall- and there you go an instant mech ready for war!!!

    The Japanese have a good handle on the robotics market. They even have an annual robot carnival to show off the latest creations and what to look for in the future. You all should look into it. I had a blast at the one in 1999.

  12. The-Bat says:

  13. none says:

    i dont think ud find blue prints, for a thing that just came out. I wonder what the US has behing its curtain.
