No.4 SAU by MrJumpManV4 No.4 SAU by MrJumpManV4
2083-China
Recently the tension between and the MEA (Middle Easter Alliance) along with Russia and India has increased, and the need for a powerful defense plan has risen. Before now fighting articulating robots were still only concepts, but the increased flow of money to defense contracts promised incredible results to change this. The SAU (specifically the No.4) was an ingenious design to add to 's arsenal. it features a 120mm (120mm x 2000mm rounds) Javelin Rifle along with 2x smaller 66mm Anti-Air cannons coupled with the most advanced and modern AI systems of its time. The most ingenious aspect of the SAU (standard articulating unit) is its unique ability to transform into a tracked tank unit which allows it to maneuver more flexibly depending on the environment. Although the first SAU to be effective in combat (extensively so) it was quickly outdated and more advanced designs smaller designs eventually replaced it.

Paper Tiger is the nickname given by the American "mercenaries" that fought against the Chinese Military. There is speculation about why it's called paper tiger but it usually agreed that the American soldiers generally considered it more of a fear factor than an effective weapon, considering that it was easily taken out by stealth bombers or virtually any air to ground support units with a weapon attached.

Service time is considered to be from 2075-2083 (present). Presently the majority of No.4s are being recycled for newer SAUs.

UPDATE---
I added a mirage effect, it looks awesome but i think its placement is off, criticism about the mirage would be appreciated.
