Predator B Mercenary by Karyudo-DS Predator B Mercenary by Karyudo-DS
PMX-1-1B: The A model's production version and far more common. Originally deployed to federal military units and later replaced or upgraded to C models. The left over B's would later end up as test subjects, trainers, and mercenary high end equipment.

Changed it up this time, slightly different post effects and this one done in pen. Other missing elements entirely intentional.

Edit: Shown here on the left shoulder is a multi-short-ranged UAV launcher. The legs feature 6-legged UGV's rather than the normal Anti-personnel/Reactive-armor. The load-out shown is more of an information warfare support setup. Ironically while not suited for CQC, the left arm weapon is an explosive shotgun.

Oh, and the lines this time were (mostly) by pen. Yeah, I said it.

That's actually pretty neat. I love the colors. What are those parts on the calves?

Thanks, those are six-legged, wheeled drones. I had some drawings of them but they just never ended up on here.

VERY NICE!! Reminds me a bit of the old pre-clan MechWarrior designs and the ground units of the Human Reform League from the first season of Gundam 00. The UGVs are a good idea too. And putting them on the legs makes dropping them to scurry into the ruins very convenient and hard to detect from a distance. .

Thank you, I was trying to pull idea's and gear together to try and make a mech viable. Mechwarrior had some good concepts, though I've only seen glimpses of 00. A UC fan mostly :D

The UGV's I mixed with the UAV's for some odd reason but the idea came from assessing how venerable to hidden infantry a machine like this would actually be, more eyes (and .50 cals) the better and small enough they could slink inside and secure important structures.

Good point. Easier and safer than waiting for armored infantry to show up and sweep a building.

If you want to watch 00 the whole first season is on youtube.
