AG 16 - PM22 "Rig Veda" Psi-Con Mech . His steps shake the heart, his stare chills the soul. Where he walks all hope flees and Death follows his trail. Rent it with our Special Christmas Discount! . Dr. Lentz's last masterpiece, designed and spawned in the labs on board the Galamoth.
25.75 mt tall (circa 62 cm, 24.4 in) humanoid mech, featuring the most advanced ArchoGenis techs.
With extensive energy shields, regenerative structure, Bionite plating and a double Psi-Field, the Rig Veda (named after one of the Hinduist sacred texts) is a dread machine worth an army. And it costs like one!
On his back you can also see 2 orbital missiles, designed to penetrate deep in the hull of a vessel before detonation.
The fact that Psi-Ops are rare and extremely valuable made it necessary to oversee many misdemeanor, and even some felony. Finally, ArcheoGenis Command found the perferct way to deal with unworthy psychics: they are put in stasis and function as "Psi-batteries" for the Rig Veda.
The Mech's EAP (Evolved Artificial Personality, extremely advanced AI)) saps into their unconscious and can also use and amplify all their abilities! (Although usually one of them has powerful offensive abilities like plasma bursts or elemental attacks and the other defensive like force fields, technopathy, telepathy, etc.)
The Rig Veda also packs an extra punch. Well, actually 2.
(you may ignore the transformation sequence, it's only there to show the system of mobile plating that takes the place of the extra arms)
And now you see him in close combat configuration (those are the blades you saw on his back).
His personal arsenal also includes SPINNING POWERBLADES to shred enemy vehicles and buildings.
(As well as 2 plasma grenades on his forearms. Can you see them?)
Also, his secondary arms can easily reach for the gunz attached to his waist (a double barrel shotgun and a rifle, both with vibroblades) to waste all those bothersome interceptors.
Yet for more challenging missions, the Rig Veda is equipped with his very own custom weapon.
Aren't you tired of choosing between the oustanding penetration and range of a Rail Gun and the awesome rate of fire of a Gatling gun?
BEHOLD! The GATLING RAIL GUN!
800 bpm (bolts per minute), effective at 14 km, Psychically enhancable! It equips an after burner to counteract the immense recoil, that would be enough to send the Rig Veda flying!
Whether on the battlefield or in urban combat, the Rig Veda is utterly merciless, combining the emotionless logic of a machine with the cunning and determination of an highly evolved AI.
Entire armies were wiped out witout even laying a scratch beyond the Rig Veda's barriers...
And how good is your Kung-Fu?
And now, a small black light gallery.
Front view. Notice the Shield Plates on his shoulders.
The Rig Veda's "wings" drain radiating energy from the environment to feed its double brain-core. They are also equipped with an additional shield emitter each to deal with heavy firepower and a small plasma gun, or a rocket.
The Gatling Rail Gun shooting its aluminium rods with neutronium round head. COSTLY!
The dreadful sight of the Rig Veda advancing (and a very cool wallpaper, if I may say so myself).
Details of the Gatling Rail Gun's barrels. Each of them is actually built as a separate Rail gun!
My ArcheoGenis Folder (check out how much I suXXed when I started!)
Note #1: Shooting in black light is HARD!!!
Note #2: This is basicalliy a technic build covered in system and bionicle. The fact that the lower part of its legs and its heels are made of heavy bricks and slopes gives it an uncanny stability, for a humanoid shape this size.
Note #3: He's so playable! Full of hidden weapons and moving parts, I love playing with it! Too bad I'll soon need his calves and other parts :(
Inspiration for this mech came from THIS and THIS by Jibs Studios, and Mazinger by Go Nagai
