I had this on WIP mode for months. I had made little progress for several weeks, then recently, I worked up the initiative to finish it in 2 hours. It's gone through drastic redesigns, and several additions. In my opinion, this is probably my best mech yet. The head was the most difficult part. Ignore the stand in some pics, it can stand without it, but I didn't want to take any chances.
The Heavy Assualt Weaponized Tactical Walker, or HAWT Walker, is the newest addition to the Mech Division of the Zalmoxis Military Directorate. It requires an elevator or stairs to reach the cockpit. Various field tests have shown the leg boosters have come in handy for charginf or escaping. However, the large head has limited maneuverability. Just like all the mechs in the ZMD, this mech has an interchangeable array of weapons.

Remnant Arm MOC Background:
The MW-28 Mk1 is one of four new walkers added to the Zalmoxis Mech Division this year. It is a medium walker, meaning it has a fairly good balance of weapons and maneuverability. The mech was created to counter the surprising power of the Outer Colonial Militia's contracted Walker Division. It is a favorite of mech pilots, due to its powerful boost jets mounted on the legs. It replaced the aging Sasquatch as the difficult-terrain walker.

Very nice, the in-cockpit shot is amazing. All I would suggest is... Huh. Nothing.
Oh yeah, and I don't think that a vehicle that size could support a rail gun (I'm one of those "it has to be realistic" types :P. Rail guns don't even have enough energy when on entire sea battleships, so yeah. There.)
This walker is cool, but is it hawt? I don't know. Maybe. I love the design. The legs look fantastic. The body is really good too, though the trans-orange missiles (that's what they are right?) are a bit glaring. That in-cockpit shot is awesome. My biggest complaint is that I would give it longer arms. Still, it's really awesome. Glad to see you're still kickin'!
