I am Writeing a Short Essay about the Feasability of the Mech.Right now i have goten the First 2 Parts of it done and i would like to know what the Flood thingks of it and give me some suggjestions and opinions on it. [quote] The Feasability of the "Mech" Foreword This Document is to study and to bring to light any possible usefull Aplications of a "Mech" in reality.This document will bring up several Topics includeing "The Mech in general" "Potential uses and applications of a Mech" and "Limitations and benefits of the Mech Compaired to Wheeled or tracked Vehicle's".Please also note the mech is mainly a Science Fiction device however many time's Science Fiction become's Science Fact.Also keep in mind that the Person Writeing this report is entitled to insert joke's at any time he feels compelled to do so.Now on to the First Chapter. Chapter 1 The Mech in general. The Mech,A Word that Conjurs up image's of gigantic robots dukeing it out in futureistic Battlegrounds useing Fantastic weaponry,But for Clarity i will Classify What a Mech is.First to be considerd a "Mech" it must at least A:Use "Legs" as its main form of Transport,And B:Be driven by a Human inside a Cockpit on the Device.The Line Between Mech and Mobile Armor is a Fluid one,For Clarity Power Armor is usualy a Exoskeleton that the User "Wear's" as opposed to the cockpit of a Mech.Power Armor is usualy portrayed as augmenting the user's ability's and enhanceing there survivability in harsh enviroments. The Mech is often portrayed in Science Fiction as a Walking War Machine and to lesser Degry a Construction and logistical device.For the most part they are right on those Aplications(i will Further Eleborate in later Chapter's).the Portrail of Mech's can be divided into two Catagory's Eastern and Western. The Eastern Mech is most often Portrayed in Anime or Manga.Eastern Mech's tend to be more humanoid in shape with sleeker designs,opposable thumbs and kung fu grip.The most Popular Eastern mech/s can be seen in the multiple Gundum Series.These mechs often are capable of Dificult Arobatic Manuver's and most often are piloted by prepubecent teenage boys and the occasional Busty Female suppourting charechter with a overly annoyingly skweaky voice.So it is safe to say Eastern Mechs are not Placed in reality but gosh darn dont they look cool. On the other Side of the Coin are Western Mechs wich tend to be more rugged than Eastern Mechs.A common Theme of Western Mechs is that the Mechs themselves are unweildy Leviathins wich if thrown to the ground would have trouble geting up.Also most Western Mechs have Ditched Arms and opposable Thumbs for Permanantly Fixed Weapons Platforms.It is Safe to say that Western Mechs are more Rooted in Reality than Eastern mech's.A Good example of the Generic Western Mech is the Battletech Series of Boardgame/books/vidiogame's.
