Freaking awesome model. What I never understood about mechs though is how Battletech used monomer musclulature, and how the mechs later designed such as the Vulture/Mad Dog, (even by the Clans, who were with Kerensky's team of scientists and had access tot he tech) run on what looks like hydraulics?
I've looked around for this information, but I can't find any explanation.
That's no Mad Dog. I'm know what the Mad dog looks like. your miss two auto cannons on the slides of the nose on it and the gunery pods on the arms of a mad dog are bigger then what you made. that's the vulture not a mad dog
yeah i do. i was a huge mechwarrior fan. and i know what i'm talking about. it's the little minute detail that give it away. like the mad cat and the timber wolf. again same basic model, different weapon, and defensive systems. just like what you made. the vulture has a slightly smaller design making it faster the the mad dog. with a centrally mounted pulse cannon, which your so called "vulture" should have. it should have a gun turret in place of the pulse cannon. and the gun mounts on the arms should be larger at the back and more narrow to the front, with two shielded missile pods, that have a vent grill in the back.l oh the the whole body of the vulture is smaller then what you drew. i should now because i've used both of them online battle-tech tournament.
Jesus christ... You're only making yourself look more foolish. First of all, Mad dog and Vulture are the exact same mech. They are not variants of each other. The same goes for the Mad Cat and Timber wolf.
You can always head to the classicbattletech.com forums and ask around there if you want to make a fool of yourself.
I think I know what he's talking about. In the game Mechassault, they made it so the clanner names were simply a different variant, so in the game, the Mad dog is a variant of the vulture. If the clans ever hear about that, they'd be stupendously insulted.
As Khan of the NBT-HC Clan Blood Spirit, I am indeed stunned. MechAssault was a POS game. Look what it has done for comprehension of Clan vice IS naming conventions. And how many of the MechAssault mechs had 360 torso rotation? Baloney!!
