This project was designed to highlight my perception of a plausible evolution in mech design. Let's face it, as cool as they are, mechs are not a very practical war machine. But I set out the theorize the conditions under which they might become used. My guess is that you would see them first in a very small format, possibly in response to the advent of powered armor suits or as an alternative to them (since powered armor would make infantry losses minimal while providing enough mobility in an urban environment to make heavy armor useless.) Then progressively larger mechs might evolve to destroy the little mechs.
