This. Looks. FUCKING BADASS! Nice job Dilanski, I may or may not steal that later.

I'm in two minds about the capsule. It's the first mecha I've built in years, so I am glad it came out reasonably good, and if the thing that makes it stand out as a Knightmare is what is causing the issues, then I am OK with that.Duerer wrote:The Birmingham looks cool except for that huge container sticking out of its back. I know it's basically a code geass meme but still.
It's a Britannian mech. Praetoria is the capital of Britannia, which is mentioned in the post as such. The Praetorian Empire & Commonwealth is a separate entity with the capital of New Praetoria. The whole thing is very confusing, but so is all of the shared sci-fi kanon.Maraxous wrote:I'm not a big fan of the cockpit either, but it is a great looking mech. If read the fluff right that Praetoria is using stolen technology for the mech. Then the look really works.

It's a very nuanced phrase, with lots of different interpretations and usages, but our translators have deemed its general meaning to be "Fuck you englishmen!

"We had something of an intervention after the design stalled for the third time. Myself, the other senior designers and some of the sharper interns got around a table and listed off every MBT we could think of, and what their strengths were. We liked the GA-35B for its simplicity, it stuck to the necessities. The M1A5 elicited cheers for its armament, and the Mars for its sheer staying power. From there we just had to distill those elements into a platform. Easier said than done..." - PAE Systems Lead Designer, Vangelin Ward - Lecture at University One, Knolrhekk System

On the future of Jane's IHS:"This morning ABS Systems released a statement in regards to raised allegations of collusion with PAE Systems:
"Armour of this style goes against our very design ethos; we would much rather produce a cost-effective, technologically innovative, and... aesthetically pleasing vehicle than this lumbering behemoth."
When countered with the mobility quote of the vehicle, the representative refrained from further comment.
Having a strong presence in the main battle tank market, it is unlikely that ABS Systems would venture into the heavy tank market.
If only pigs landed.
