Battlemech by fxEVo Battlemech by fxEVo
A bit relax during work today discuss with Alex Brady about how true, near future battlemech should be, how it need to be prep for urban warfare,..., always love the rugged, battle proven mech style.
Also inspired from the amazing gigantic surface tank of Al:

Doesn't seem that far fetched. Repurpose an M1 Abrams into and mech and you have future armor.

One thing about tanks and one of the reasons I don't think mechs will ever be used is the fact that they require so much support. I think the only way it would be possible would be with micronized nuclear power plants. Today the marine nuclear power plants are fairly small - so a 20' by 8' area would be required, plus shielding. I think tanks are not used very much due to the infrastructure required. So, I would think that in order to have even heavier walking mechs would require even more infrastructure. I'm a big fan of mechs but I believe that they would need to be much larger - something more like an AC-130 Gunship combined with a submarine with 4 or 6 legs. I think mechs in the future would be very large with nuclear reactors allowing them to operate indefinitely in the field without a massive fuel and infrastructure trail. I think your image is awesome, I just think that in the future mechs would be more like walking troop transports with micronized nuclear reactors to remove their fuel and maintenance supply line. I think mechs in the future would have 16 man crews (4 fire teams) and 2-3 pilots with 2 engineers. So the supply line would be with the mech itself. Also, the 16 man squad (4 fire teams; 1 section/squad) would man weapons and guns aboard the mech which would probably be substantial - 2-3 main cannons, 4-6 .50 cal chain/mini guns and then mission specialized pods i.e. missiles, anti-air etc... LOL. Sorry for my long post, I just think a lot about this stuff. To make it short... I think the future mechs will be a cross between a six leg walker with a AC-130 and a submarine.

Mechs will be used, but not of this scope and size. There are already plenty of heavy-duty war robots out there, just unused, for now.

Just what an early generation mech might look like, stick with what we know works well for us on the battlefield (the turret) and add legs for better agility. Like the infantry helmet design too.

"KEEP FIRING, GODDAMMIT! We have them on the run, keep it that way!!"

"Take cover! The mech will cook those bastards with a plasma round, just GET OUT OF THE WAY before it fires!!"
