AEGAKS-116-MWh "Peregrine" Version 2
"Why did I build a flying AEGAKS, you say? Because I'm a genious. You should know that by now." Kenichi, when asked why he sank resources into the Peregrine's development.
About this creation





The original Project AEGAKS that Kenichi had developed was meant to be six identical 102's and three identical 103's. When Ryu customized his 102, it opened a world of possibilities, and Kenichi jumped at the chance, after the initial shock that someone had actually altered his work of mechanical art.



Each 102 prototype was modified to enhance their pilot's strengths, and to minimize their weaknesses. When Hikaru's turn came, it gave Kenichi a great deal of trouble. The jumpjets on Hikaru's Arkham were constantly needing maintenance as he used them far more than any of the other pilots.



As a result, Kenichi stripped the armor from Hikaru's AEGAKS, and redesigned if from the ground up. Lighter armor, enhanced jumpjets, even replacing the right forearm and hand with a large multiform gun.



In place of the typical back hardpoint for equipment, Kenichi mounted a unique engine system which supplies the necessary power for the Peregrine to remain in flight, however this does cut the AEGAKS' operational time from 12 hours to 2.



The engine unit is mounted to a gimble servo that allows it a free range of movement, to increase maneuverability. When not in use, the wings fold down against the engine casing, and the whole engine assembly folds down along the back.



The lighter armor of the Peregrine can not sustain much damage, but it is a fair trade considering how much speed was gained. While the unit is not much lighter than the original Arkham, the Peregrine's mass is centered more around the flight engine, balancing it better and putting more of the mass directly in front of the thrust.



The flight engine consists of the main engine assembly, two servo mounted wings, each with a secondary engine as well as a small ducted fan. This provides all the thrust needed by the Peregrine for flight.



With the flight engine, the Peregrine is, at best, awkard to pilot on the ground. The extra weight and off balance distribution is ideal for flight, but not for ground combat.



While the Peregrine is able to become airborne under it's own power, it is fired from an aircraft catapult during deployment, to reduce the time necessary for full acceleration. The Peregrine can also hover for short periods of time.



As with all AEGAKS, the pilot block is ejectable, and features a parachute for easy landing as well as a more powerful distress beacon for pilot recovery. The powercell ejects as well as the head, which is a standard in the Arkham prototype line. The unusual feature here, though, is that the flight engine assembly can also eject.



When Kenichi developed the Peregrine's flight system, he understood that if it were to become inoperational due to damage or mechanical failure, the extra weight would prevent the Peregrine from being able to recover itself on the ground. In addition, he knew the flight system would require much more power, so he mounted the whole engine to a larger powercell which connects to the back of the Peregrine.



The wings are independantly mobile and swivel as necesary to produced the desired flight path. The secondary engines provide additional thrust, while the ducted fans route hot air off of the engines and down, cooling the engines and providing additional lift in a single function.



While the engine is capable of gimble, there is a brace on the underside of the main assembly. Since is is not required for the engine to gimble much in flight, the brace folds down and locks the engine in place for basic cruise and manuevers.



In addition to the flight system, the Peregrine maintains a dual jumpjet on the calves. This helps with liftoff and touchdown, as well as midair maneuvering. While each by itself is not as powerful as the ones mounted to the Arkham, the combined weight to thrust ratio is higher than the Arkham's original leg jumpjets.

CREATOR'S NOTES:

So, I got bored.

I was looking at my collection, and for some reason, I just fixed in on the Peregrine. I wasn't wholly satisfied with the design, so I did what I usually do. It strpped it of its defining components, and redid them.

I took alot of the advice given on the first version into account, so thanks guys. Changes were made to the flight system, the head, the jumpjets, the frame, the cannon, and even the shoulders.

I am a lot happier with this version.

What say you? I wanna know. Hope you enjoy it!

Quoting crazy chris0905 hey rabbit goldfish, great addition to the AEGAKS line!! I also would like to ask you if you would mind paying the AEGAKS evolution page a visit, I actually started that group. due to personal reasons I had to leave MOCpages, however I'm back now. It makes me kind of sad to see the AEGAKS line died off, so i would like to help it up its feed again. the problem being I can't do that myself, so would you please help me with that?! Happy MOCing!
I'd not say it's died off, just taking a snooze. I've got ideas, just not made good on them considering how busy I've been.

Bloody hell, that is seriously impressive. I like the cockpit design, but the whole thing is just inspired.

Quoting Mike Johnson I'm definitely getting slow in my old age. You keep popping these beauties out like you're making a batch of popcorn! Don't ask me what I'm saying, I'm not even sure myself. I know one thing though and that's a fine mech when I see it. Well done.
I understand you fine. Sometimes, I can even keep up with myself. Got a GAIA MOC to post, as well as two more AEGAKS related, similar to the Beach Fun one I did.

Quoting David Britt Very nice mech you have there....It would be a shame... Sorry about that. But it is a very cool mech. I like the lines and how it flows. Looks very aerodynamic as it were. I posted my attempt at a mech in the AEGAKS style over on my page. I hope you get a chance to check it out.
I checked it. You did a good job.

Quoting Rex David :O I've always wanted to do that jet-pack! WOW just wow!
It's actually deceptively easy to do. Just need some Bionicle parts.

Quoting Riku s. Hey nice build. Very nice shape. The wings are pretty cool, Code Geass style i think. Did you got the idea from the Anime? :3 :)
Actually no. I did them that way because it reminded me of Hikaru's first machine from the Exo Force theme. But yeah, it does look Code Geass-ish.

Quoting andros tempest I still love these guys, I was beginning to think you'd moved on from AEGAKS. The flight pack is very clever, I'm a big fan of modular mecha.
No not yet. Been having issues with a few things, but now I'll be doing some story related presentations.

Quoting Tim C Excellent build. He looks very mean. I like how you have the cockpit and the extra poseability there. The weapons look great and the flight system is genius. I know it's so minor when compared to the rest of the skill that went into building this, but the jets on the calves is such a cool addition and some nice parts usage to achieve it as well.
Thanks! I was very pleased with the calf thrusters too. The flight system can *technically* be mounted to any of the Arkhams, except the 102.

Quoting Parrington Levens I love it when you get the bricks to one of these designs, this version is even cooler, I just wonder if the next step is going BIGGER?
No, actually, it'll stay about the same size, if I do another version. Got another one I'll post tomorrow for yah.

Quoting Liam Covey Overall, the shape and frame of it are good, but it seems awfully awkward for a flight unit. It seems awfully blocky to me. For example, the shins and shoulderpieces are very sharp. I would have expected smoother curves to the armor so that it would appear more aerodynamic. The shoulderpieces themselves and the backs of the arms seem a little unfinished too. Another slope or two, and that'll fix it right up. I'm not terribly fond of how far out the cockpit sticks out from the body either, but I will admit that it does look more bird like with it sticking out. On the other hand, the gun looks great. Overall, it's not bad, but I would keep working on it. It has the potential to be a really great frame. Can't wait to see what other additions you make.
Actually I wanted it to have a sharp look in places. I really like the shoulders. This isn't really optimized for flight, it is an Arkham prototype afterall. the cockpit isn't actually any further foreward than any of the others, it appears to be because the unit actually leans foreward to offset the weight of the flight pack. I do appreciate the feedback and I'll definitely take it into account on this and future models!

Very well built! It remembers me the first Hikaru's Exo-Force mech. Back engines and wings are a nice cherry on the top.

Very, very nice. The wings/jetpack are really cool looking. Great job Rabid!
