VRMS-WT-002 "W-Type mk II"
We're almost through the primitive mecha here, so bear with me on this. You may notice some similarities between the First and Second Generation mecha, but look closely. They are superior in every way to their predecessors!
About this creation
VRMS-WT-002 “W-Type mk II”

The W-Type mk II represented the first time that a mech’s design would not have its basis in the X-Type. The mk II was built directly on the refurbished remains of the W-Type mk IC, and would come to be a symbol around which the fleet would rally.

With High Command firmly entrenched in its dictatorum of all-out warfare against the Void fleet, it fell upon the developers of the mecha project to increase the assault capabilities of their next generation mecha.

The W-Type mk I had acquitted itself well in battle, and High Command approved the decision to have it become the first of the second generation of combat mecha. While the main structure endured few changes, the wing vernier booster wing binders were radically redesigned, and became the mk II’s most distinguishing feature.

The new wing binders consisted of a pivoting mount around which a series of wing boosters would be able to deploy into a fan-like configuration. This new setup greatly increased the unit’s already considerable mobility. However, the new mount was extremely powerful, and not every pilot was able to master the complicated controls, or endure the large amount of strain that such hard manoeuvres but on their bodies. The units tended to be awarded to ace pilots only.

In terms of armament, the mk II was a large improvement over its predecessor. It retained the deployable hip cannons, but these were upgraded to heavy plasma cannons. Two additional heavy plasma cannons were installed in the wing binders. Two beam sabres gave it melee capability and it retained its arm mounted XMS-1435 “Golden Gun” superlaser cannon. When fully deployed, the mk II also retained its now-trademark ability to lock on to multiple enemies and fire all armament.

For defence, the mech sported an early version of the XMD-21Sb “Aura” beam shields that would become standard on later models.

Nearly 30 W-Type mk IIs were produced in the year following the defeat of the B-Type mk I. However, only about 12 of these were built from scratch. The rest were made off of modified mk I frames. Several mk IIs still function as “officer” units in the Alliance Starfleet.

The mk II’s arrival was well timed. Very soon after its rollout date, the B-Type mk II took to the field, once again causing widespread devastation. Grant Hart battled the B-Type mk II, in a W-Type mk II and though, after several engagements, he eventually managed to critically damage the B-Type, his W-Type mk II was mortally wounded and Hart was killed.

In the subsequent destruction of the Remnant Fleet and their evacuation to Targon IV, many of the Fleet’s mecha were destroyed, and only 4 of the original mk IIs survived. One would be taken by the VRMS and used as the basis for the secret W-Type mk III project that would continue for the next two years.

It was supposed to be a mini-freedom gundam that was more swooshable and playable than the full sized one, much like the mk III was supposed to be the freedom gundam's successor, the strike freedom gundam. I guess it didn't turn out too well though-hahahaha.

Not your best, but still pretty interesting idea. It reminds of the thrones from 00. Hows the meteor unit progressing? Hope to see it sometime soon.

Quoting Moodswim . Another awesomely designed mech! I love the wings. Please check this out: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/143983
The whole design is kind of loosely based off the the Freedom Gundam, just on a much smaller scale. That resemblence will increase much more with the mk III version (which isn't just an upgrade to this, like this one was to the mk I. Its a totally new machine)
