CAN Heavy Mech

Here's my second go round at MOC mechas. This one is a heavy mech with a high-output energy cannon. I envision it as belonging to a squadron of 4 mechs. They would act in the way a filed artillery unit would.
About this creation
This CAN (Cool Acronym Needed) Mech is part of a high mobility field artillery unit. The main gun is a high-energy output cannon, the mech itself is built specifically to serve as the platform for it.


In addition to the main gun, defensive armaments include:
- 2 forward facing heavy machine guns (active in low-walk only)
- rocket pod (6 shot, field ejectable) on the right arm
- close range plasma thrower on the left arm



Given the size and power of the main gun, I felt the frame should be pretty bulky and have wide, heavy-duty feet.

Should it become overrun with ground personnel, I wanted to give it the ability to stand up and surprise the hell out of said attackers :) From this stance, the plasma thrower (left arm mounted) comes in very handy.



Things I learned from this build:
- 3 big weapons may be too much (not that you can ever have enough firepower)
- It's easy to bulk up a body and scrimp on the limbs
- greebling can be hard to get right

See you on the battlefield!

Nice and bulky. Looks like it could take a beating. The plasma thrower looks like it could use some work or maybe rebuilt into a large chaingun. The color scheme looks great too. Keep at 'em. Peace - Patrick
