For anybody who is curious, the pitman mech is probably the most realistic mech design ever created

>Resistant to 50bmg armor piercing rounds all around

>Can mount typically crew served weaponry, standard armament was an arm mounted m2 heavy machinegun but it could logically mount anything else in the same size class such as AGL's or miniguns

>Got several million in millitary funding, working prototypes were built but power issues were never solved, could probably be done successfully today if built with a micro gas turbine generator to supply power


I bet light mechas like this will see actual combat use if megacity warfare ever becomes a thing, modern infantry are just too damn squishy in a world of IED's and explosive laden drones.

realistic combat mech design*


Its a shame no army has ever gotten the inkling to test out what a walking tank could do in an urban combat environment.

More likely people would just use other drones and humans just served to hold territory, which is defensible and absolves the need for the armor in the first place.

Also is power armor mecha? You dont pilot it, you wear it.

>>19845501
It has mechanized muscle fibers, the suit armament and all probably weighs damn near a thousand pounds, I guess j don't understand where the line is drawn between mechs and suits of power armor

User interface, if it requires an artifical interface (ie a cock pit, throttle ect) than its a mech, if its motivated by the body its powered armor.

Neural interfaces not withstanding, typically if you are sitting down, you're in a mech.

Makes sense, but you could have some BIG very mecha looking suits that are still controlled via natural body movements

Which would make them powered armor (if the user is internal) or drone (external)

I think a certain size requires a cockpit and the type of controls there in are irrelevant to its classification.
>>
>>19845703
Elaborating further, if a it was specifically designed to have a cockpit, that makes them a pilot and the machine is a mech.

Power armor has the user distributed over the system (literally wearing it).

Typically you can blow off components in mechs without direct risk to the pilot unless it hits the cockpit (excluding explosions, concussive force, shrapnel etc), but blowing off select components of power armor literally cripples the user as well as the machine.

powerarmor is the smallest form of mecha. having the haptic controlers bepart of the suits limbs does not change that.

there are corridors and situations where "more people" does not work. throwing more bodies at something is also wastefull, not to mention cruel. drones have limited payload by needing to fly. ground drones would be very usefull.
but having drones fully remote controled makes them easy to jam, and fully autonomous drones scream for skynet scenarios. so having rather dumb drones and power armor/mech robotard wranglersto point them at the enemy makes sense.
>>
>>19845680
>>19845685
>>19845691
i think pedal, button and joystick controls are awefully limiting for humanoid mechs, as it ignores natural movement in favour of preprogramed motions or ai (which can be an issue of itself). haptic controls are far more efficient for humanoid design, as natural movement of humans is the most situationaly aware option on the ground.

spider tanks can be joystick controlled, as less awareness (only insect level) is needed from the machine.

>>19845703
>>19845742
the control methode is indeed irrelevant. scale is what distinguishes a power armor from a mech:
- power armor: human scale, maybe stilted limbs.
- landmate: one pair of limbs no longer in the mechs, legs still stilted.
- mini mech: pilot capsule makes up majority of the torso
- mech: pilot capsule makes up less than half of the torso, or only the head
- titan: pilot capsule is negligable compared to the rest.

Thats a nice way to overcomplicate classification.
The more common (and arguable better) distinguishing factor is that: If the operator has to 'wear' it, it's a power armor/suit, if they have to ride the damned thing, it's a mech.
