MocOlympics 2009 entry into the Mech Category. Introducing the GENESIS class scout mech.
About this creation
Dave Kaleta's creation, the Polarizer can be found here . Well I've had this creation done for about a week now, but I've been crazy busy at work and at home right now, leave it to Chris to plan the MocOlympics right when my Fiance is about to have a baby!! Anyways on to the show!
A frontal assault by one of these is not likely, but it can defend itself when necessary.
The all terrain legs can be seen here. This scout was designed to function in nearly all environments with little to no alterations to the design. The legs were inspired by Megatrons legs from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
A view from the back, showing the communications array and the Pilot. Of course the Pilot is female as with all Dawn Forge mecha, as the Genesis requires a large amount of perception to utilize the neural interface, which is still in the testing stages.. Here you can also see the Sonic Pulse emitters, from the rear, these pulse emitters can funnel a tremendous amount of sonic energy to keep Csek forces at bay until reinforcements arrive.

A sort of side view showcasing the armour of the Genesis.
The Ground to Air missiles don't have a lot of punch against a tank or mech, but they do pack quite a punch against dropships as well as hovercraft. They can also be used as a distraction to divert enemy targets to another area.
The sensor pods have a huge 500Km (or 312.5m) range. Capable of penetrating enemy armour, these sensors are among the most highly advanced sensors in the Dawn Forge. They are also used to provide enemy possitions to larger Dawn Forge mech, as well as the Icon command mechs.
And lastly the only defense against enemy infantry, the twin .50 calibur guns.
Well I congratulate my opponent, Dave Kaleta on his victory of round 1, group 2a! His mech was a beauty, and a very interesting story to it. Hopefully I'll have better luck next year in the 2010 MocOlympics!
Very original design, and well executed, but I think Dave's still gotcha beat. His Mech was also a brilliant idea, and he had a very polished look with his finished piece. Good work, but not good enough to send Kaleta packing...he's got my vote.
