RCC Heavy Mech colored by Auger-Affect RCC Heavy Mech colored by Auger-Affect
Current preview of the coloring job of my previously posted image.

Among the chief issues Ambulatory Fighting Vehicles faced were their raised centers of gravity compared to more conventional vehicles which made heavy chassis a questionable prospect. Coupled with the inherently hard-to-armor knee, shoulder and hip joints, most early heavy AFV designs were failures.

One of the first successful conventional heavies was the GAAV3 Zveryoga (Brute). True to it sname, the original design was originally itnended for civil suppression. After a violent strike in the newly annexed Kharkiv plant by Ukranian workers who feared the AFV would be used agaisnt their own people, the design was modified for conventional warfare.

The heavier frame with its wide legspan and low center of gravity proved receptive to more loading then previous designs. After a comprehensive up-armoring and installation of extremely advanced Almaz-Antey avionics, the Zveryoga proved to be a lethally versatile main battle AFV.

Heheh thanks. It's no gundam size wise, that's for sure. I tend to design small, about tank size. This guy can fit down a one-lane road no sweat.

Thanks! I refferenced the Russian Federation's flat green paintjob on their tanks I saw at englishrussia. Its definitely a much more different take then the desert drab camo most commonly associated with modern/future warfare pics. So I'm glad I did it :D

hahahah! Actually, I was thinking of using that as the mech's unofficial name in homage to the Hind Helicopter's own "Krokodil" name as dubbed by sovient pilots.

But yeah, my buddy jordan thinks it looks like a hardsuit as well. Hopefully not too much, what do you think?

Nah, it has it's armored chore-esk feature that doesn't show at first, but it's still original, nothing to worry.

Hahah love the user name. And, thanks. I try to be VERY consistent with my perspective work, even if I have to use 'boring' angles like this one :P. This is honestly the first fatty robot design I've been happy with in years :)
