About this creation

The Prime ATT is an ugly beast of a Mecha.



Built in the aftermath of the Great American Wars of Secession by the short lived True America Coalition.

It was often used in the wastelands of the mid-west where the newly independent states fought to maintain their autonomy from the New World Federalists like the TAC.

Though ungainly and obviously simian inspired in some respects, and despite the awful pun of it's name, the Prime ATT proved to be a remarkably versatile and popular vehicle.







The unusual half-track and half legged design allowed it to vault from all kinds of surfaces both in the wasteland wilderness or in the radioactive ruins of military bases and cities, while still maintaining a fast pace and a reasonably comfortable ride, at least in comparison to similar sized wheeled transports.



The small transport area had the unfortunate appearance of a disposable nappy being peeled off a small baby (or chimpanzee) and this led to the nickname 'dump troopers' for the special forces troopers who deployed behind enemy lines. Oddly they embraced the nickname and often spoke of 'dumping' on the enemy.











One of the most unique abilities of the Prime ATT was that in a crunch situation the pilot had the ability to raise up on the front legs and bring the magnetic shielded rear feet off the ground. The atomic engine could then be run in overdrive to provide effective shielding from standard rail-gun rounds to the mecha and any nearby troops.




Built for the Iron Mecha Challenge on Flickr in June 2011.

Okay, this is the 2nd "gorilla" mech I have seen in about a week- incidentally, both have been superb. Are the rules for the Mecha contest that it has to be shaped like an animal?
