CSW-33B "Excalibur" by Jepray CSW-33B "Excalibur" by Jepray
the APC walker data: CSW-33B "Excalibur", first built in 2297, it's seen a lot of service in it's 11 year lifespan- combating Garoudan Garouja (the faction of the Garoudans that believe it's okay to eat sentients), countering Byntai raids and doing JTF operations (Joint Task Force) with the Ahruga to recover kidnapped persons, crushing a major invasion attempt by the Serog, and border disputes with the Naradi Empire. Single pilot/gunner links to the walker via neuralnet command, and it becomes like his body.
It sports dual heavy APPCs (anti-proton particle projection cannons) in the arm weapon pods for it's primary punch, three medium AP lancers (anti-proton particle beam emitters, two forward, one dorsal) for assault and anti-missile defense, a medium APPC under the cockpit for precision strikes and anti-personnel defense, Sparrowhawk LRM antimatter missiles for indirect/over-the-horizon engagements or anti-ship attacks, and two light AP lancer emitters in the rear of the legs for anti-personnel defense.
Other stuff- 12"-36" thick atomically-bonded composite armour with nanite auto-repair systems, heavy shields, Conudyne CV-40 antimatter reactor core, with independent fusion cores for the weapons systems, and an onboard AI

Very nice. It's a basic design that many have used for artillary units. And the sleek ship chassis gives it a race car feel.

It looks a little like a Battletech Cauldron Born (Ebon Jaguar), but it's really just a passing resemblance. Not the sort of thing any reasonable person would sue over, though if Harmony Gold were the ones that owned Battletech you'd get a lawsuit in a minute.

Anyway, all jokes about those money-grubbing gits aside, I think it's a great design - a little heavy on the antimatter, which is volatile enough that I wouldn't want it within ten miles of me, but a great design.

Thanks, my friend is making the stats, and it is rather heavy towards AT but he assures me, that its perfectly safe... if the reactor is damaged enough to be breached you'd already be dead anyways, so no worries...:P but yeah we used the Cauldron Born as a general template...

Well, I noticed that the weapons are all dependent on anti-protons, and, due to the nature of those, if they come in contact with protons, you'll get the classic matter-antimatter annihilation reaction.

Oh, you did? That explains the resemblance, then.

Yeah, actually it would. Maybe you could try adapting the body to that purpose and see how it looks?
