Strategic Heavy Infantry Triped
Latest Advanced Military Weaponry rolling off the assembly lines at Drake Industries Czech Konsortium
About this creation
Ciao comrades. I've the special privilege today to introduce you to the latest advanced weaponry that will be moving to the front lines in Uzbekistan immediately after this exclusive press release. My name is Pavel Kryzinski, the top Mecha Pilot in the NWO Army, and I'm reporting to you today from just outside the Drake Industries Czech Konsortium'c Mecha Production and Advanced Testing Facility in frigid, snow covered Uherske-Hradiste. We are about 3 hours east of what remains of old Prague, and we have over 2 meters of snow at this time with drifts over 6 meters high. I'm standing in front of the newly released Strategic Heavy Infantry Triped. For short, we just call, it,... well, nevermind. This transmission is being censored by the Bureau.


As the camera pans out, you can see that the S.H.I.T. is over 10 stories tall, and you will immediately notice the results of years of R&D, the unique tripedal design, which makes this such a stable attack vehicle. The bi-pedal designs from before have all proven too unreliable in urban fighting and rough mountainous terrain like we see in the Uzbekistan front lines. Also, you can see that this is the first Mecha that uses dual tracks on each foot. This allows for exceedingly fast highway transport, up to speeds of over 200kph on level surfaces. We anticipate this will virtually eradicate the need for dropping these using Chinooks as we have had to do in all previous battles where we used bipedal MECHA.



It's a short 6-story ladder climb to the cockpit



As you can see, another improvement with this design is that we have eliminated the need for a Mecha bay, as the ladder retracts behind the main body. The continuing global economic meltdown we've been experiencing over the last 30 years, from 2005 until today, has made us have to re-think the way we fight.



While this model has both heated seats and heated ladder and landing, the units that will be going to Malaysia won't have this added required functionality for the cold-weather units. As you can tell, if I were to slip on ice from up here, I'd be one dead Mecha Pilot after the 6-story fall.



Power doors come standard in all units, and you'll notice the canopy is 3-inch thick titanium-epoxy alloy, able to withstand a direct hit from 50-cal gunfire. There's also field suppression technology and rapid threat dematerialization flux units placed in several locations, although the exact locations remain top secret.



Similar neuro-connection interfaces as on previous bipedal units make piloting the Mecha unit as simple as thinking of what you want it to do. We did have a bit of trouble training pilots to use their third leg, but response times have proven higher with Africans and the Irish. Tests are still being performed on Dravidians, but we have no substantial results. Fire controls for the S.H.I.T.'s 9 separate weapons delivery systems are all located on the 2 sticks.



Now that I'm neuro-linked in, let's show you some of the dexterity and weaponry, because after all, this is really nothing more than a means to bring heavy firepower to the enemy.



On the back are 2 twelve giga-ton Tactical ICBM's. We call these the show stoppers. If things get really nasty, and the call is made, we can launch these and be out of the kill range in plenty of time. Typically we would not arm a Mecha with nukes, but since the nuclear winter is here, what have we got to lose now. On a side note my friends, don't forget to take your anti-radiation pills. It's not gonna' get any better.



For the more typical asymmetrical warfare we see, there are 2 separate weapons systems on each arm, 2 in the groin of the beast, 2 just below the pilot's canopy, and of course, the hellfire missile launcher up top.



The S.H.I.T. has full range of motion, with the arms able to move 135 degrees up and down and 135 degrees front to back. The elbow joint has 90 degrees of flexion and extension. The body can rotate 360 degrees on top of the legs to allow faster response when surrounded by multiple enemy combatants. This again, is a vast improvement over previously standard bipedal Mecha units. The tracks on the feet similarly rotate 360 degrees, so while in battle, the S.H.I.T. can simultaneously move in any direction while targeting enemies in any other direction. It's a lot like dancing, and again, Africans and Irish have scored highest on mobility tests.



The right arm has a revolving 4-barrel 200mm pulse cannon. These puppies can blast through a wall of concrete 12 feet thick. Handy for storming underground bunkers, and blasting through eneny barricades. The upper forearm on each arm has 360-degree rotating upgraded heat-seeking stingers. They're old, but they still work just fine for heat sources.



Up top you can see the hellfire missile launcher. It has a kill-field of 360 by 180 degrees. Beside that is the main weapons targeting system.



The canopy has chemically embedded night vision LCD technology. This is not only handy for fighting in the night, but most nuclear winter zones require this during heavy fallout.



This baby's groin is packing another 8-pack of hellfire missiles, and the side-mounted missile launcher will hold any standard cruise missile. We can see the forward illumination units up front as well. Note that this is unit #2268. Yes, 2,267 units have already rolled off production and are currently mobilizing to various fronts.



If you will all excuse me now, the allotted time is up for the exclusive press release. I'm hearing something coming through over the com. Duty calls, it's time for me to go give some S.H.I.T. to the enemy.





Build Commentary:
I'm on a 2 week trip to the Czech Republic, Uherske-Hradiste to be exact. This time I was smart and packed a subset of almost all of my extra bricks. Most of these parts are the left-over black pieces that I bought when I was loading up for the 5 foot tall ShangHai World Finance Center, which is also all black. Maybe it was a combination of walking thru the cold, winding, snowy cobblestone streets of a former Soviet block country and an abundance of black bricks had an impact on me. Not knowing what I would build, I turned my attentions towards weapons of war and oppression.

Typically I build stationary MOC's, and I now have a new found respect for Mecha builders. Building a humanoid, movable MOC is NOT an easy thing to do. Thank God I had a slew of various hinges. This is pretty stable, but probably not really "playable". However, since my 2 nephews are coming to visit at Christmas, I decided to add one of those spring-loaded missile launchers that are so common on the Star Wars ships nowadays.

Let's hope it doesn't operate as horribly as its name implies. I like acronyms :P

Well, in going with the name of the mech, dropping russet potatoes behind me as I ran away would be exactly what I would be doing. Nice way to step out of your normal building style, and with my favourite shade as well. Thanks for sharing. Lee.

Um... this spells a bad word. The S.H.I.T., needs to be changed! I was like, "the... WHAT?"

Well, I suggest a visit to the House of Mech http://mocpages.com/group.php/499, one of the biggest mech/mecha groups, but not much more than a display. Tthen, a trip to the MOC Refinery http://mocpages.com/group.php/8788, where you can post your mech and ask for pointers and constructive criticism, and last but not least, the Research and Design group http://mocpages.com/group.php/5322, where you can share the techniques that led you to this unique result, an check the topics for weird/interesting concepts. You can also join some of the army groups around, but it's just for ratings, unless like me you're trying to build a background, storyline. Welcome to the world of giant robots.

Quoting Yuri Fassio lol it looked bigger. It falls about 30% short. Indeed I really hope to see more mechs or other sci-fi from you, you have an unique style.
Yeah, it's shorter for sure. I just checked out your AG 16-PM22 "Rig Veda" Psi-Con Mech, and it's a MONSTER! And you weren't joking about it being able to do KungFu. Very posable! The S.H.I.T. has quite a bit of mobility, but to stiffen it up a bit I limited the range of motion on the 3 legs. And with the tracks on the feet, if it is on a smooth surface, it can really be slippery, hence the picture taking on the blankets on the bed here in the hotel in Uherske. I'll be building more, but I first have to get some inspiration. Off to visit the stuff I have avoided on MOC pages for the past year...

The acronym has no significance in the Czech Republic...

Quoting Yuri Fassio Dude, I love your S.H.I.T., the retro look, the overpacking of weaponry, and it looks like it's about as tall as my Rig Veda! (although yours can't do Kung Fu lol) I'd really like to see them facing one another, how tall is it?
Let me go over to the snow, er, uh, I mean, blankets, and measure it. Okay, my S.H.I.T. is 49 studs tall, measuring stud length, not stud height, that is.

Quoting Chris Phipson You had me at "heated seats." I actually laughed out loud at the "learing to drive with the third leg" bit. Is it a coincidence that this mech reminds me of "Robot Jox?" Be safe on your trip and keep em coming! ~ Chris.
Funny you should say that. Last month I watched Robot Jox while I was in ShangHai. Lousy movie, but great idea. If only they were to remake it with better FX!
