VRMS-WT-003 "W-Type mk III"
Third Generation mecha. Built off the first generation frame. HEAVILY influenced by the Strike Freedom Gundam. I was going for a Strike Freedom on a scale that I could play with. I had a modest amount of success.
About this creation
VRMS-WT-003 “W-Type mk III”

Like the W-Type mk II, the W-Type mk III was based off of its predecessors, rather than the original X-Type. As opposed to the Ancient/Targonian hybrid M-Type, this unit was purely Ancient designed and implemented. The new version represented a quantum leap from its predecessors in almost every respect and set a precedent for new technology that other units have been hard pressed to live up to.

With the arrival of the B-Type mk III on the battlefield, Void Resistance Mecha Systems was set upon to create a unit that could match the power of its awesome foe. The development of the W-Type mk III was carried out with the utmost of secrecy. From the beginning it was obvious to the developers that no amount of firepower would be sufficient enough to counter the exo-skeletal structure of the B-Type mk III or its remote weapons systems. So the developers began exploring alternatives.

The idea of a remote weapons system had been in the works since the fielding of the S-Type mk II. The system that the developers came up with for the W-Type mk III was a huge stride forward in the field of remote weapons. The weapons would be psychically controlled and moved and have enough onboard power to fire a heavy laser and function as single lasblades as well. This new system would give the mk III remote ranged possibilities as well as remote melee options, giving it an edge over the remote weapons of the B-Type mk III. The beam sabers would also enable the W-Type mk III to breach its enemy’s defences, finding vulnerable spots in the exoskeleton, piercing them, and then firing its beam cannons, destroying the B-Type’s vulnerable internal systems. The remote weapons systems were installed in place of the wing vernier boosters from the W-Type mk II, and could still function as such when not deployed.

For the rest of the armaments, the hip cannons and the twin beam sabres from the mk II were retained, though in an upgraded form. The superlaser was scrapped in favour of two heavy laser rifles that could be combined into a single super-heavy laser rifle, just slightly less powerful than the superlaser, but more energy efficient. Of course, the W-Type mk III also featured the ability to lock on to multiple enemy targets simultaneously and fire with all armament.

The outer structure of the mk III was the greatest departure from the previous models. The armour was completely rebuilt with lighter and stronger materials, giving it more protection and mobility. The mk III also featured second generation beam shields on the forearms.

The mk III’s drive system was also updated, including a previously untested design: a compact dimensional jump drive. The drive was still in its early design phases and was prone to overheating, but would enable the mech to undergo a single instantaneous jump into and out of the Origin Dimension. Essentially, the mk III would be able to teleport once on the battlefield before the system overheated and burned out. This concept would be reworked and overhauled on the X-Type mk IV’s design.

The W-Type mk III made its combat debut during the latter stages of the Planetary Overthrow Campaign. A large part of the difficulty with fielding the unit was the acquisition of a compatible pilot. The mk III was a difficult machine to operate and even more strenuous on the pilot than the mk II. In addition, the pilot not only had to be skilled, but also had to be at least a medium strength psychic in order to handle the remote weapons systems. There were also numerous sabotage and theft attempts by moles that had been infiltrated into the fleet.

With no other available pilots on hand, untested pilot Mithryl utilized the mk III to surprisingly great effect. The W-Type mk III engaged the B-Type mk III on three separate occasions, but was unable to score a decisive victory during these battles. Shortly before the Battle of the Ylandran Shipyards, the W-Type mk III and the B-Type mk III would engage in a final clash, with the B-Type being destroyed along with Unit 912, and the W-Type taking heavy damage.

Only one W-Type mk III was ever produced.

Quoting SithAssailant . simply awesome... i simply love the fact that you based the design off of the Z.A.F.T ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny
Many thanks! Did you have a chance to see the actual ZGMF X10A Freedom Gundam that I made? Not quite as nifty as the X20A Strike Freedom, I admit, but still pretty nice.

Quoting Tom Rosado O_O;;; unbelivable I never thought I'd see a Freedom style gundam done in Legos, how did you manage to do it? it looks spectacular!!!
Thanks! :) I started with a frame (check out the First Generation Frame in my "Frames" folder), and just built on top of it. I built an actual Freedom Gundam though--check it out!
