I'd of assumed its a drive for fun not military design, was that your first idea for it?

I didn't have anything particularly in mind when i started making it, i just had a general idea of the aesthetic and the overall form.
my intention was initially to make it a military vehicle but i designed it for the fun of modelling itself.

Kind of the elephant ride amongst the jungle is what I see.

One optimistic concept:
Downsize and convert it into a highly maneuverable/configurable transforming type space based station security mech, that can adapt to changing scenarios and battle strategies - possibly even confusing adversaries with it's myriad capabilities & powerful weapons? Through years of battlemech training & massively parallel systemic neuroptic teraflop military AI processors with built-in redundancy? :wow:
I figure maybe a quarter the size might work well in and around larger space stations.

Since a 40ft 23ton behemoth like that seems it would need a lot sturdier locomotion base to be able to maneuver at top speed and be responsive enough without toppling over or making small crater sized holes with each step when changing directions because of it's weight.

~ But I guess that's inherent in most mech concepts that size really.
It's kind of a missing link to me, when fantasy & sci-fi concepts look so real - but the physics don't fit or look right in motion - because of the shear size and weight of the objects in action!

Nice homogenized concept though, looks cool! :D

Looks veeeery cool!
Only two disvantages could be(just for mindgaming, no critique):
1. The incredible armor would not save it from the kinetic effect of a simple explosiv weapon that will bring it from the legs(US military tested the theory of battlemechs after the game become so famos and stoped after realising this problem - like always this guys take ther ideas from the television:lol:. Arms could be a little counterwhight to lower this effect)
2. The main weapon system loses much of itīs tactical function(itīs incredible range) cause the shooter is hindered by ground topography - this weapon on a flying craft has a lot higher effectivity.

Yea the first point you made is pretty fair, i was thinking it would easily fall over if it were hit by a KEP or HE round too.
unfortunately the weapons have extremely high power requirements, taking more than half of the power that the Reaper has available to it, and to get more power means you need to increase weight which isn't much of an option for aircraft. the EMASER is more intended for close combat and support roles since it could only really be used for long range if it were at a standstill, it also loses much of its energy at long ranges but still has the potential to kill or blind at extreme ranges.
