"Viper" MHM-03/A
Intended for more direct combat situations, the Viper platform provides the next and final evolution of previous "Stalker" chassis.
About this creation
viper

High demand for more versatile direct action combat mech's forced the final evolution of previous "Stalker" chassis to the highly effective and refined MHM-03/A "Viper." Maintaining the same low-profile characteristics that allowed Stalker pilots to remain unseen under the veil of electronic warfare, the viper takes a more personal role in engaging enemy targets.

Viper

Fitted with MRM/G-12, or Guided Medium Range Missiles, the Viper can still engage targets from a comfortable distance or choose to close the gap to more personal in-fighting. Each arm fits select-able fire-synced or single fire AC/10 autocannon's as well as a Medium High-Pulse laser. Two modular weapon mounts exist above the protective core housings for additional weaponry, although any added comes at the expense of maneuverability and speed.

Viper

Techniques in component integration and simplification learned through the Hellion MkII project allowed a more refined but restricted electronics package to be fitted in a much more discrete location while still maintaining original Stalker capabilities. HEAT/Infrared, Sonar, SATNAV, and SLAVE systems allow Viper units to maintain a "pack mentality" when pursuing their targets. Age old fire and forget technology has been resurrected to allow better "covering fire" maneuvers with any integrated missile systems.

Viper

New heat management technology allows the Viper to do away with the manifold style heat exchange system employed by previous mech's using variable output RITEG power plants. A two Hermes 200/VO generators provide controllable but potent energy sources. The "variable output" functions allow further concealment of Viper units from active and passive detection equipment.

Viper

The same refinements utilized in the development of the MHM-03/A must also be employed in preparing its pilots. A fine understanding of the physical mechanical movements of this machine and attention to finesse are essential. Die-hard Stalker pilots will find it difficult to climb into a Viper and immediately utilize the machine to any effective potential. Feuds among Viper and Stalker units have broken out over battlefield and personal superiority. Surprisingly, the high-brass sees this as potential incentive for even finer pilots.

Viper

--------------------------------------

Whelp, if you made it this far, you probably have a strong tolerance for BS. So yeah. I built the Viper after scrapping my old Stalker a year or so ago and finding that it literally inspires me to do other builds. I wanted to create something that finally embodied exactly what I had envisioned in a mech such as this. After scraping an old MTT and placing an order on BrickLink for some much needed detail pieces, bam, I had this. The older designs use hip-joints that had awesome manuverablity, but were unstable for any sort of walking pose, or combination of "horse stance" and walking, etc, etc. I wanted to see if the ball sockets would resolve this. After some careful testing and cleaver placement of cling-wrap I found them to be excellent replacements to older click hinges.

Hope you enjoy!

Amazing! The body has such a unique idea. Also the legs look very flexible. One thing is the feet look kinda small for a mech this size. But it still looks great!!!

The colors and styling are good, and your greebles are solid, but the legs and feet seem a little small for the torso imo.

It's good to see someone out there is still building Battletech mechs out there. Is this an official model from the game or is it your own personal design? Either way it looks good to me.

Looks great, I love the overall build and the color scheme rocks! One word of advice though: tile up the exposed inverted studs on the back. A technic pin with a stud on one side fits well in the back of bricks, and allows for tiles to be placed, which cleans up the back of a MOC significantly.

fabulous design, but isn't the small footprint a stability issue?
