medium  walker unarmored WIP by scifieart10000 medium  walker unarmored WIP by scifieart10000
A start on my first sketch up model walker

some tech specs
30 feet high, stance width 14 narrow enough to fit in lanes and on truck trailers for deployment
retracting foot extensions allow for greater flotation on soft, ground reducing the ground pressure to only 6 psi, assuming a weight of 100 tons.

retracting auto turrets provide active point defence, against rpgs missiles etc

twin gas turbines provide the hydraulic pressure for locomotion

Armament is tentative at the moment

yep it will get armor, its just that i did not want all the time i spent engineering a realistic hydraulic system to be a total waste. im going to cover it all up so might as well show it now.
