This monster was originally supposed to be a missile variant of the Ballista. However, after attaching the missile pods (now rocket pods) the suit looked too top heavy so I beefed up the legs, then the legs looked overpowering, so I beefed up the body… long story short it kept getting bigger and bigger until this was the result. Now, the only thing that suggests it was a modified Ballista is the canopy.
Details include mass amounts of heat vents, sensors, weapons, smoke grenades (under the left arm), module rails, ammo drums, smooth parts, rotating ankles, tilting pods and arms, digital eyes, and a fully enclosed cockpit.
This hulk doesn’t have the original reverse joints of the Ballista, instead it uses conventional legs because with this much weight they’re quite a bit more stable.
The WarMaster is also much wider than its original model being able to mount over twice the weapons load out of any other Combat Armor. As such, this is the first Combat “Armor” that can take on heavy tanks and medium sized Mechs, and earns an assault class rating.
The housings on either side of the cockpit don’t just hold rockets, they hold the 40mm Rifles and ammunition, as well as rocket blast diverters, jump jets and sensory mounts.
Because of its size, the limitation of Combat Armor Stress Technology, and the use of high powered weaponry, the WarMaster uses Light Weight Tech similar to that seen in the Archer: Caseless ammunition and Boltless Rifle Tech. However because of the mass amount of firepower and armor the weight of the Titan is still high.
This suit shares the cockpit canopy of its original intended design. However even that has been modified. Newer more accurate targeting computers aid the pilot in aiming all those weapons along with Mass Neuro-Interface equipment reduce the workload to an almost bodypart like naturalness, also mounting heavier armor.
Humanoid arms have only been seen in a few of my designs but the WarMaster also utilizes chest mounted armaments. Alongside of the fixed arm mounts, module-rails are also used similar to those on the Wolverine and Ballista lending the suit increased versatility.
The “chest” mounted rockets and cannons are actually actuated so they can tilt up and down independently which lend the arms increased flexibility as they are attached to the outside of the rocket pods. These pods were supposed to be a resurrection of the Rocket system seen on my Juggernaut Mech. However after adding the 40mm Rifles they looked better and gave the Titan a more aggressive look.
Module Rails are also mounted on the Rocket pods, which in these pictures are used for Eagle Eye long range radar and the Phantom ECM Suite seen on the Ballista. When used in concert, the ECM and Jump Jets provide a good level of stealth and mobility in spite of the Suit’s size and relative lack of speed.
Though larger and stronger than the Ballista, this armor is slower and less flexible. However, it can crouch a bit and maneuver its arms independently enabling it to take on many more targets at once.
Holy horse flies! This is awesome! I'm pretty sure it could survive a point blank shot from a cruise missle and not need so much as a new paint job! I just noticed something while reading this, I have been calling these mechs, but they're power suits right? I always forget the differences. I just always thought of powers suits as actual suits - like Iron Man or Master Chief. Never mind, I'm rambleing again. Dibbs on longest comments award!!! Sorry... Peace - Patrick
