About this creation

The Mbk-101 "Sigmus" is a joint project between Exocorp and Sentai Province. It was started to finish off from where the Vbl-2-101 "Sigma" left off. To ease production cost, and because of its designation as an experimental work platform, the Sigmus was constructed primarily from an Arkham Frame.

As engineers had designated the sigma as an experimental work platform, they decided that all non-combat features be excluded in the design. Thus, the Sigmus lacks jump-jets. The main power-core is ejectable, for reason which will soon become apparent.

The Sigmus was designed to test the concept of using beam weapons as the main combat armament. Two beam weapons on either forearm can fire both individual beams and beam lances.

As a result of the beam weapon's high energy consumption rate, both beam weapons have individual power-cores, giving the frame as a whole ample energy for standard functions. If the main power-core runs dry, the secondary power-cores can act as a viable substitute.

The beam weapons themselves generate a large amount of heat while in use. Pauldrons on either side of the Sigmus are uses primarily for thermal dissipation, though they can take a fair amount of punishment. These pauldrons are designed to spread out in order to maximize surface area from which heat could escape. The dissipation rate of the pauldrons is so great that without them, the frame as a whole would reach melting point within a matter of minutes.

The power of the Sigmus is released on remote controlled target drones.

The ejected components of the Sigmus. Both the main and secondary power-core eject, as it was soon discovered that with the power-cores still attached, the frame would explode, even using the same power supply uncoupling technique used by the Sigma.

COMMENTARY

It's a shame, really, considering that I made many more PMDEM that I never posted. Now that I have LDD 4 that might just change...

Quoting Rabid Goldfish Interesting idea to include the concept for the beam weapons and the heatsink pauldrons. Definitely a good start, but I think you could improve on it a bit. Maybe add a few more distinguishing features? ^Blub^
Any Suggestions?
