    My problem though is the control scheme. Instead of a single controller, movement of the upper and lower halves should be separated. The lower half would be controlled by two see-saw pedals to control the left and right side wheels for better control and maneuvering. Secondly, the top half would be handled with arm rigs for independent control of both arms.

    We're working on it.

    Even then, how do we sell these things? Who would buy them? The novelty wouldn't justify the costs. Bipedal locomotion is a hugely complicated matter compared to tracks. The machine would need to be so large and the armor, especially around the legs, so thick and strong that it would require serious firepower to take them out.

    Something like this, but a million times bigger:

    It's much cheaper to just mount our weapons on a tracked chassis, than a walking machine that's in jeopardy the moment an anti armor gun shoots one of its legs out from under it.

    Not to mention, you can trip things with legs.
    Notice how the AT-AT got fucked over when they tied its legs with cables?

    The empire would've lost not a single machine(and not to mention, they would be so much faster) if their AT-ATs looked like this instead:

    Also it would be cheaper just to make tanks.
    While Mechs/dreadnaughts would be cool, it just wouldn't be practical on a battlefield.

    Huge walkers are not going to happen unless it is weapon platforms like MADCAT. Seeing dreadnoughts is realistic, especially if we have to fight against other sapient beings that are larger than us in melee combat

    Its much cheaper to genocide them all with a biological agent that only targets specific dna structure.

    a more primitive form of this, is planting a KFC restaurant at a nigger neighborhood, and cutting medical aid grants for heart disease from welfare cheques.



    ps. is "genocide" also a verb? if not, I dont give a fuck



    ps2. oh yeah, the giant robot thingie.
    well, the only thing you could kill with that is your time.
    I mean, it's so gay, it must charge via USB adaptor or something.

    It's not cost effective, Japan is quite possibly the most uncreative culture on the planet (among individuals this is statistically so). Their society consists of little more than socially enforced autism, these worthless robots. They've yet to produce a real "breakthrough" in any field, they only follow preset patterns and concepts others have laid out for them. Their horrifying education system is almost entirely to blame.

    Despite all of the energy autism these guys pour into their chris-chan/fucked up obsession with imaginary people the payoff will be minimal. What's even more ironic is genuinely revolutionary robotics will not come from japan, they're parasites.

    I'd arm my Kuratas platform with the following:

    For close quarters/anti-personnel work, look no further than twin wrist mounted AA-12's loaded with FRAG shells....



    ....which will work in tandem with the venerable mini-gun:



    This weapon combination would be me left arm. For my right arm I'd mount the MK19 automatic grenade launcher for area of effect bombardment...



    mated to a 20MM Lahti anti-tank rifle:



    Finally, as a shoulder mounted weapon, may I present the ADWS, or Area Denial Weapons System, for those pesky enemy helos and low flying aircraft:

    Can that thing even support the recoil of even one chaingun?
    let alone 2 on the ends of each arm?

    Did you know...

    The Gryazev-Shipunov GSh-6-30 weighs half as much as the GAU-8 and has an even higher fire rate. Its thrust-to-weight ratio approaches 40, which means if you pointed one at the ground and fired, not only would it take off in a rapidly expanding spray of deadly metal fragments, but you would experience 40 gees of acceleration.
    This is way too much. In fact, even when it was firmly mounted in an aircraft, the acceleration was a problem:

    The recoil … still had a tendency to inflict damage on the aircraft. The rate of fire was reduced to 4,000 rounds a minute but it didn't help much. Landing lights almost always broke after firing … Firing more than about 30 rounds in a burst was asking for trouble from overheating …

    But if you somehow braced the human rider, made the craft strong enough to survive the acceleration, wrapped it in an aerodynamic shell, and made sure it was adequately cooled ...

    … with a GSH-6-30, you could jump mountains.

    This is pretty amazing, other than liking that it is a robot. I would love to see the insides of that thing and try to see which parts work with what. I also like seeing giant robots beating the shit out of each other. And instead of firing hamburgers, fire (if possible) frozen watermelons at the nigger's head.
