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.
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? 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!
