HCC WH-I "Warhawk"
Dynamo Industries presents the next generation of AI commanders; the Heavy Combat Commander, Warhawk!
About this creation
The newest addition to Dynamo Industries line of AI commanders is a worth succesor to the Ghost Raptor series. While not as agile as the Ghost Raptor and incapable of actual flight, the Warhawk's heavier armour make it a much more difficult target to eliminate and its modular weapon loadout makes it more than capable of dealing with any combat situation.


While the Warhawk doesn't posses the electronic warfare systems of the Ghost Raptor it more than makes up for the loss with it's heavier armour and increased firepower. The armour is the same supercompressed-diamond plating, though the armour is more angular to deflect projectiles much easier and the magnetic redirect system has been improved to provide additional disruption of energy weapons fire.


The wings of the Warhawk are much more powerful than the wings on its predecesors, but the power-consuming main booster engine was removed which means the Warhawk is not capable of aerial flight.
It is still capable of the rapid overland flight thanks to improved repulsor engines on the legs and feet, with the wings providing the directional thrust to allow the heavy Warhawk to move quickly.


The detachable power core provides the Warhawk with all the power it needs in combat, allowing it to exceed the limits of its built-in power supply without causing a potentially lethal power down.


The secondary power core is also detachable, allowing the Warhawk to escape from a potentially explosive reaction should the core be critically damaged. While the built in power supply is enough to keep the Warhawk functioning, it's offensive power and manoeuvrability will be significantly impacted should the power core be lost.
Triggering an overload and ejecting the power core can provide the Warhawk with an excellent diversion allowing it to escape, should things turn ugly.


The modular nature of the Warhawks weapons allow it to be equipped for any possible combat scenario, whether it be a drawn out long-range battle or intense close-range urban warfare, the Warhawk can be an effective front line fighter in any situation.


The Warhawks versatility is its best weapon, allowing it to not only direct a battle but participate and even prove to be a deciding factor in many combat scenarios.


Here we see the Warhawk without any weapons equipped to give you a better idea of how the mounting system works.


(The mounting is incredibly simple, as you can see here. The shields/missile pods have a socket for the red peg and the main weapons have a peg fo their own to fit into the front socket)


(The loadout of weapons and equipment is quite substantial, I'm considering making a "squire" mobile refitting platform to carry everything)


The "Damascus" shield module provides the Warhawk with additional armour and a powerful shield generator, allowing it to block a significant ammount of incoming damage and making it an even harder nut to crack. The shield generators are the same as seen on the GR-II, though due to the Warhawk's already significant armour they were relegated to attachments rather than built-in systems.


The "Dagger" heavy laser batteries are a deadly weapon at any range, capable of firing with pinpoint accuracy the Dagger is the workhorse of the Warhawks weapons. Each laser can be fired individually, two at a time or all at once allowing the battery a variable rate of fire and energy output.
The Dagger is also equipped with an energy storage module, allowing the Warhawk to charge the weapon for a period of time and fire significantly more powerful blasts; a fully charged shot from all four lasers is enough to put down even the heaviest mechs with one well placed shot.


The "Archer" plasma barrage cannon is a unique combination of energy weapon and guided missiles; the twelve individual points you see on the weapon are not actual warheads, they are power arrays. The Archer operates by charging each array then firing a small projectile (which is, on its own, harmless) through the array. The energy stored within the array is attracted to the projectile and launched out of the weapon, the projectile then seeks out its target and collides with it, discharging the energy in a powerful explosion.


The "Longbow" assault rail-cannon is the second deadliest weapon in the Warhawks arsenal, it is essential two long-range railguns in one; capable of firing shots in rapid succesion at long range with incredible accuracy. The advanced ammo-block that supplies the weapon with its ammunition is an incredibly advanced peice of technology; the weapon assembles a round the moment before firing allowing for massive ammounts of ammo to be stored in a relatively small package and providing the weapon with variable ammo types on the fly.
Shot staggering is a technique that became apparent in the testing phase of the Warhawk, when the AI began firing two different types of ammo one after another. The most effective was firing an armour-piercing round followed by a high-explosive round; the AP round would tear a hole in the targets armour and the HE round would detonate inside the hole, causing massive ammounts of internal damage while bypassing a majority of the armour.
Another AI discovered that by firing two Kinetic-Energy rounds at once it was able to easily knock over even the most stable of targets, disabling the target while other units nearby destroyed it.


The deadliest weapon in the Warhawks arsenal is the "Battle Ax" combat saw; a relatively simple weapon the Battle Ax is little more than a pair of powerful vibro-blade saws capable of tearing through armour like it was cardboard.
The most dangerous feature of this weapon (aside from the saws of course) is the grappling claw attached to the weapon, which is capable of launching itself forwards independant of the weapon and grasping a target using its powerful claws to dig into the target and then, with some torque from the Warhawk, pull them into range of the saws.
This one-two combo has proven to be more than effective at surprising and quickly neutralizing opponents and combined with the high speed (for such a heavy mech) of the Warhawk this strategy is incredibly effective in close-combat situations.


This is the detachable power core mentioned earlier, to give you a better view of it away from the Warhawk.


Here we see the Warhawk utilizing the Damascus to shield itself from incoming fire while charging the Dagger to retaliate.


some unfortunate soul wasn't able to outrun the Warhawk and its grasping claw.

Quoting Yu Sing i love your warhawk design and will be attempting a similar one in future. just curious how much of it came from the bridge walker and how much of it came from separate loose parts? (im considering if I have enough bricks to try to build one this big)
Almost all of it came from loos parts I ordered from bricklink. Believe it or not I've only owned 3 Exo-force sets; the Iron Condor, the Shadow Stalker and a Sentry.

I See, You Name At First Seemed Like An Inside Joke, A Pilot Named Neil Pilots A Gundam Called Dynames, So When I Saw Your Name, Neil Dynamo, I Was Had To Ask.

Quoting Rabid Goldfish You have a knack for building in black and neon green. ^Blub^
I have the most black/various shades of grey bricks and the neon green is mostly just because I like it.
Quoting Andrew AKA Hump-Free Neil Dynamo, Do You Like Gundam 00?
Can't say I am, I don't watch any anime. Most of my ideas and inspiration comes from things like mechwarrior and the thousands upon thousands of sci-fi movies/books I've seen/read.

Didn't I comment on this before? I like the overall design and the exchangeable parts fit it well. You have a knack for building in black and neon green. ^Blub^

This thing is pretty amazing! I am a fan of the Grappler/power saw weapon, I can easily see how dangerous it could be. I wonder how Cerunnos Kaiser would stand up to this... In any case, great mech!

Looks great! The interchangeble weapons are an amazing feature. As I said to Jason, I'd like to see personally your creations at least once. Well, maybe someday.

Nice color and those wing make the body shape more beautiful. Just want to know if there is a mini-fig inside it?
