GUT-2L General Utility Trainer-2 Light Mech
The GUT is an old style standard issue mech used mostly by poorer worlds and organizations for garrison duties, light raids and training rookies in the basics of mech warfare. Not prized for its looks, its main assets are that itís easy to pilot, comes with a variety of long and short ranged weapons and is dirt cheap compared to most other war machines! Not surprisingly, the majority of these over the hill clunkers are still found scattered throughout various rim worlds where they still represent the height of battlefield technology.
About this creation

Front

Left

Back

Right

The left arm sports the Lead Slinger 5 Series auto cannon. A twin-barreled medium class gun, each barrel can be fired independently or both barrels can shoot together for greater damage. A total of 60 rounds are carried inside the arm as well so that if the ammo explodes, at least the rest of the GUT will survive the blast, hopefully! An additional shield baffle was later added to assist in protecting the GUT from flanking attacks to the gun.

The right arm is a 15-Tube Death Blossom LRM (long ranged missile) launcher. The missiles do not have any lock-on capabilities and simply rain down upon whatever coordinates fed to the targeting computer. Therefore this weapon system is very hit-or-miss when it comes to damage. With only 8 batches of missiles in its inventory, the pilot needs to be sure of a maximum potential for success before pulling the trigger.


On each side of the cockpit is a heavy caliber machine gun with 100 50-round bursts of ammo. The primary targeting sensor is located directly underneath the cockpit.

Two Thunderclap directional jump jets allow the mech to traverse obstacles up to 120 meters across with ease. A simple antenna array allows the pilot to communicate with allied units. The antenna can be raised or lowered for improved reception.

Here we our rookie pilot Ernst Von Richtschieven working the controls of the targeting computer.

Now confident in his skills, he poses posthumously with his mech for the camera.

Unfortunately while putting his mech through the paces, Ernst pushed too hard. The stresses blew out the knee actuator and caused a harrowing crash. He survived but compared to the reprimand he received for his foolishness, death may have been a better choice!

Quoting Tad Paulsel Excellent! I like the way the fifteen-tube death blossom looks. It (the robot) looks almost like a.... transformer. Very nicely done.
Well the GUT-2L was based on Battletech building guidelines but since I used to build Transformers when I was a kid, I wouldn't be surprised if those influences snuck in when I wasn't looking. Maybe I build one again once It's time.

Quoting Kidgunsmoke . Ilike the top area but the legs really bother me, they look to stiff, do they even have a joint? ou should try making some reversed jointed legs
I'm afraid you missed the point of this particular design. It's supposed to be an old mech lack sophisticated construction techniques. Also the legs are jointed but they can only bend a small degree due to the parts used in their construction. I suggest you should spend more time studying someone's MOC, particularly the backstory before commenting again.

Quoting Parrington Levens Love the cs look to this, looks like a total BAttle Mech, I wish I knew how to make a decent mech!
Have faith my padawan, wait a minute wrong universe. The only real difference between a ship and mech is wings versus arms and legs. Forget humanoid mechs and try walkers instead. Probably the first main challenge is to build it so it can maintain its balance and not fall on its arse! If it does, so what! Just post the pics of it crashing and burning instead. They can still be just as joyous to behold. Remember, it's all about the build that gives us the most pleasure.

Quoting Bernardo BLITZ Silva Looks...basic, which isint bad, quite on the other hand! Very Space era, kinda reminds me of things of old :D
That was the idea behind this one, like totally 80's old school. It also fits in with Parrington's "G.A.I.A. The Forgotten Worlds" theme which is where it shall reside.

Quoting Marc R. Great, love the bulk look of this baby. It compensates his less developed technology with its huge weapons. Cool stuff! Great explanations as well. This fits perfectly into the G.A.I.A. Forgotten Worlds theme. Btw, my "Anaconda" fighter and this mech would look awesome together! ~Marc
Thanks and feel free to photoshop them together if possible. They can be one of the running themes if you like. Or it might just be easier to reproduce it since I used mainly older styled parts to build it. The idea was to build a mech that could of been a set from the 80's since that where all of the grey parts originally came from.

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J I'm diggin' the 15-Tube Death Blossom LRM (long ranged missile) launcher!
Well this whole baby is heavily influenced by the "Batletech" world. Out of all the table-top mech games I have ever played, that one's still my favorite. In retrospect, it's probably because you could custom build a mech from the ground up just I did here.
