About this creation
Warning: This MOC contains make-believe mech ordnance and capabilities. May be suggestive to some.
The Hellfire Assault Mech is an experimental fighting machine from Space Homeys Interstellar Technologies™.
Affectionately nicknamed the HAM, this mech is designed to scare enemies even just at the sight of its firepower. If that is not enough to frighten the enemies and convince them to retreat, every ordnance is deployed for maximum destruction.
* 6 Schlange Missiles (short-to-medium range)
* 2 Quad Autocannons
* 1 Minigun
* 1 Pijevac Cruise Missile (long range and/or for deep penetration)
The heat-seeking Schlange Missiles are deployed initially to set up the HAM's assault. Each missile has the equivalent yield of one Little Boy atomic bomb.
If the missiles do not do their job, the mech surges on. Quad Autocannons flank both sides of the HAM, capable of firing a total of 6900 rounds per minute per Quad Autocannon.
As if the Quad Autocannons are not enough, a Minigun is mounted up front for an all-out carnage!
Finally, the Pijevac Cruise Missile is designed to sneak behind the enemy lines to give it the final blow. The destructive power has the equivalent yield of three Fat Man atomic bombs. It's has the accuracy of hitting a target with a diameter of less than one centimeter. Needless to say, it's a big one. That's one red hot warhead. A big bang would be an understatement.
If the enemy tries to sneak from behind, it better not try to get too close because of …
You might say the legs are skinny. Of course, they are! It's a chicken walker-type mech after all. It got chicken legs, yo!
Who dat pilotin' da HAM?
A fighting mech like this requires advanced skills and handling to operate and maneuver. The HAM's first fully-trained, qualified pilot is Ace Commander Kitty Overham. Meooowwwrrr!
Simple interior layout. Ace Commander Kitty Overham only needs the target locator screen, the buttons to fire the missiles and guns, and a couple of joysticks to maneuver the HAM. Ahaha … joysticks … haha … ha … moving on.
If the -WAR-head of the cruise missile is replaced with Mr. Bones, does it become a -BONE-head? ... Nevermind ...
I'd say Bring it on!! against my Armageddon Mech... but im not so sure i can snipe this thing with a rail gun and live to tell about it

Its a cool build, but I am having a hard time getting behind the painted bricks. I guess if they are primed and painted individually with flat ABS paint it could work, but I'm still iffy on it. Cool robot though, 5/5 Chris
I like this one quite a bit. I don't think the legs are too skinny, but rather the joints themselves. Love the stompy feet, but you knew that already from my designs that you've looked at. Keep up the good work!!
Great mech. I tried building one, but I got way too involved in trying to make it fully articulate. Ended up going a bit bonkers. The doctors were kind, and the nurses cute, however, so all was not lost.
Bone-head! HAHA!! Very nice. You called my last freelancer weapon wicked, but this baby is much more wicked than my weapon! This thing is bristling with weapons, you can hardly count them. Oh, was the big red-headed rocket intented to be between the legs, or did it get there just by accident? I´m surprised that Phipson didn´t pay further attantin to it! ;-P I´ve got anothe bad joke: This HAM needs some eggs! Ok, enough. Very good work, buddy!
Nearly 50 'I like its' and i'm the first to say.....
Is that a deep penetration cruise missle or are you just pleased to see me?
That (and a load of other suggestive innuendo) aside, I really like this. It's loaded to the eyeballs with firepower, looks menacing and actually fits a fig inside. Great stuff.
I found that shot with bones' head on the tip of the warhead extremely disturbing. I'm talking professional help here, man. Maybe because of what the warhead was intended to look like, and the fact that bones' head is... oh man. 5 PTS. I'm off to the shrink.
Hmmmm.....let's see, good build, funny commentary, using my head as a missle.....yeah, it all adds up to a .....5. Sweet job here, I do not look at the builder names before I judge, but as I read this one, I knew it was yours. HAHAHA. So to wrap up, 5 points for you.
Well, it's about time you brought something to the table and this is really SOMETHING! That's a ton of firepower (are we overcompensating a bit?) This thing is so awesome to look at, I think I need to go wash my eyeballs!
I don't like braging but... My Pijevac Cruise Missile is bigger! I personally wouldn't let bones anywhere near mine. I don't swing that way XD ANYWAYS... awesome work! This thing looks unstopable from every angle! Keep em coming!
Wow! Fantastic Mech! This is so full of detail and creativity! Love the behind view and the way you designed the legs with the turntable brick things (don't know their real name) on the sides. I've never been a fan of mech simply because I don't understand them, but this one makes perfect sense!
My, that's a mighty big rocket he has there! Meh, some of you people here on MOCpages post mechas that are so cool that I forget all about the fact that I didn't like them much in the first place. That is to say, this is awesome :) It really makes me want to rethink my viewpoint about mechas. Love the little shoulder rockets!
