This is my latest little mini mech.it was a fun build and im really happy with how the turned out.
The GX-MPT grasshoper is a Successor to the mpt design the grasshopper lacks the mpts inbuilt hand guns and instead uses handheld weaponry therefore its arms are enlongated and offer a better close combat ability
and makes it possible for the grasshopper to pick up guns from fallen enemies if it would run out of ammo.in order for the grasshopper to move about the battlefield it uses wheels with inbuilt hoverdrives that are capable of overcharging which result in a long "jump" of course the hoverdrives can hover normally which allows the grasshopper to skim along the surface of water.
this is the two grasshoppers i have built so far with each one armed with an HAP-LV 68(Handheld AntiPersonal and Light Vehicle) heavy machinegun
this is an HAP-LV 68 it has a large ammunition supply and is very reliable it uses a combination of railgun rails and regular shells to launch its tungsten projectiles in velocitys up to 7 Mach(3 mach = 3 times the speed of sound)

the Hap-LV clips on the grasshoppers back when not in use
a closer look at the grashoppers back and side notice the clip on the back used for HAP-LV placement
This is the HG-165 grenade launcher it can lob high explosive shells beyond cover(arcing FTW!)
another view of the HG-165
awwwww the other grasshopper wants an awesome gun aswell
good thing we have two more guns on the list
this is the handheld version of the Z-45 heavy plasma accelerator it launches a beam of electromagneticly charged plasma at things
i really like this shot .
whatever you might have thougt this isn't the heaviest gun in the grasshoppers arsenal
this is the heavy antieverything cannon or HAE-randomnumbergoeshere
The HAE-1337 cannon uses basically rail gun propelled discarding sabot rounds that are made entirely of an alloy of awesomnium and titanium it has the power to go straight through a tank while setting the tank on fire due to the extreme friction and also thanks to the rounds high speed the wind that follows the projectile litteraly liquifies the crew inside.
now that we heard about the utter awesomeness that is this gun we want to try it right...
here is our lucky test subject ofcourse the HAE-1337 cannon is an anti vehicle weapon but who cares
Anakin:Yay im freee woohooo!!
observe this particular peach have large deformed eyes which AN scientists believe to have been caused by exposure to the clone wars cartoon
time to get another testsubject i guess
in adition to the aformentined guns the grasshopper have been known to utilise enemy weaponry in this case a hammer of sorts.
the grasshopper have a tactical versatility like never seen before they are also one of the first minimecha to start to develop genuine personalitys and while the grasshopper still remains in very small numbers they are sure to be a common sight on the battlefield
AWWWWWWW can you say no to that face
