A scrappy, lightning-fast little beast of the battlefield
About this creation
The Akita is considered by many to be among the strangest machines to ever come off the drawing board at Fabercraft. Nonetheless, once the Terran Union saw this diminutive machines potential, they put in a fat order. The concept behind the Akita is simple; something small, fast, and able to carry one class-1 or -2 weapon into the fray. Rather than wielding the weapon in a hand, like the more conventional anthropomorphic mecha, the Akita installs the weapon right into its chassis, with a hard-point on the rear for ammo clips.
The Akita has no flight capability, but its sprint speed and jump capabilities are renowned.
Twin 5cm auto-cannons
8 hip-mounted variable-ordinance grenades
chin-mounted anti-personnel laser
retractable cutters on the tail... hand... crane... thing
The cockpit is in the black tube-like structure in the chin.
Without added weaponry, the Akita's speed and agility are even greater. They are often sent out without the exttra payload as scouts and trackers.
The tail can reach all around to perform whatever grabbing, moving, manipulating, crushing, hacking and slashing might be required.
