About this creation
VRMS-WT-001-003 “W-Type Series mk I-mkIII”

The W-Type “Wing” or “White” Series of mecha was originally conceived as a further development of the wing binder system that had been implemented in the B-Type mk I. However, due to the theft of the B-Type mk I, the W-Type series would eventually take on the role of an all-condition mech in the Remnant fleet. The W-Type series has been one of the most successful Remnant designs which has repeatedly saved the Ancients from destruction.

VRMS-WT-001 “W-Type mk I”

The W-Type mk I began life as an extension of the AMBAC wing binder system that had been implemented on the B-Type mk I. The designers were looking for ways to improve mech mobility using wing binders. The W-Type mk I was equipped with four pivoting wing binders that could be fixed in a number of configurations. The designers went a step further and mounted boosters on these wing binders, giving the mk I unparalleled manoeuvrability.

The W-Type mk I had originally been intended as a recon model, to bolster the forces of the Fleet Recon Corps, and as such, was minimally armed and armoured. However, after the theft of the B-Type mk I, the designers, recognizing the need for a unit that was capable of defending the fleet from such a threat, radically reworked the design.

The W-Type Series’ characteristic wing binders remained, but added to these were a powerful main thruster unit, and auxiliary thrusters on the lower legs. Extra armour plating was added to provide additional protection. A large beam shield was equipped on its arm

For armament, the mk I was given a detachable XMS-1435 “Golden Gun” superlaser cannon that was mounted under the arm. For melee combat, the mech sported a SWD-2511 “Claymore” anti-armour sword that was stored on the back and handheld in combat.

The mk I’s mission role changed from recon to a command role, managing squads of its brother-units, the G-Type mk I and the S-Type mk I. Nearly 100 W-Type mk I units were produced by the end of the first year and would still be seen in combat nearly two years later.

Known Variants

VRMS-WT-001C “W-Type mk IC”

The most notable unit in the W-Type mk I line was the W-Type mk IC “Custom”. This unit was given to ace pilot Grant Hart in order to deal with the B-Type mk I. While the mech was much the same in capability as the mk I, its armaments were improved, introducing what would become a number of mainstays of the series. It sported two hip mounted heavy railguns mounted on pivots, and a mech scale beam sabre. Finally, the mk IC also featured improved targeting capabilities, allowing it to lock on to multiple enemies at once and fire devastating salvos.

Only a single mk IC was produced. It was used by Grant Hart in several engagements against the B-Type mk I, though ultimately the W-Type mk IC would be critically damaged by the B-Type mk I. However, the wreckage of the W-Type mk IC would then be recovered to form the basis for the W-Type mk II.

Quoting Colonel Jon Kaos Not ur favrite?! Its AMAZIN!
Thanks! Its not that I don't like them, but they are so...flawed. The later versions fixed a lot of the problems that this one had.

Good eye, you'll see that more and more with later versions of the W-Type, particularly the mk III version. Stay tuned :)

Quoting Eric Sophie I dig the technique of using the wedge plates (aka 3x3 plate w/o corner) near the hip joints, I also like how pose able this is.
Glad you caught that :) For these, I purposefully left them partially exposed. On later models, I cover them up completely. Its pretty easy.

Quoting Cody G wow, that's a lot of round gold bricks! where'd you get them all?
Its a single piece that came from the 7714-1 Golden Guardian Exo-Force set. IMHO it is the best exo-force set they ever made. http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=7714-1

Very cool! I seriously think you should try your hand at a Transformer or 2. Most of your mecha kinda look like 'em anyway:)
