the hull shape had to be solid like a fortress, I attempted to design something that would be ridged but stable at the same time. I used a combernation of these images and the castle images from the Head designs.
as you can see the design has a very defencive look to it, having the guns mounted over the top and having a heavy plate on the front.
I wanted to create a short range attack weapon for Mech 2, this is because it has the extra armor and strength to handle a short range battle and because of its strong pillbox appearance i wanted to keep the theme the same.
I wanted to create a barrel chain gun because of the design restrictions, a normal gun with a cartridge would be able to fire at medium to long range but a chain barrel gun has a slight medium range but is best used at close range due to the scattering of bullets.
This mech i wanted to seem strong and pillbox like so i decided to look into castles and other such fortifications
i decided on this design because it has them pillbox holes on it as well as the solid triangular shape
It's a bit more rounded than before bust still has a solid shape.
