Knightmare Frame Samudra MDC by ModalMechanica Knightmare Frame Samudra MDC by ModalMechanica
Well, I finally submitted my entry for the Mecha Design Competition. Bet you were worried! XXD Due to anoying Photoshop and a dysfunctional tablet/pen, it is done 100% traditionally with 7mm pencil, a Sakura Colours 005mm pen, and about four different Grey Prizma Colour markers. Anyway, here is some background data.

Nightmare Frame "Samudra" (Hindi for Water)

Developed in the Militarized Zone of India, for use by aces of the Black Nights. The Samudra type is designed to mainly counter large equipment and structures, although it can hold it's own against nearly any Nightmare type. Using micro vibrations, it can move through nearly any surface with ease (as well as ammunition) making it invulnerable to many attacks. Although the Samudra is venerable to energy type weapons, it has ample mobility, is equipped with a limited energy defense system, and can be equipped with an Integrated Air Glide Wing System. The Samudra's main weapons are the Jala Vasha (hindi for liquid fists). A weapon that uses micro vibrations to essentially "liquidate" its target. Its secondary weapon is Direct Particle Shell cannon, which uses chemical energy stored in shell casings for ammunition, instead of taking energy directly from its generators. Making the Samudra, a highly adaptable frame.

Unfortunately the Samudra never made to the Black Nights, due to Britannian Navy Patrols. However, there are rumors of a rouge group within the U.F.N. obtaining great victories against the Brits, using a mysterious silver Nightmare. Maybe if karma allows, the Samudra will return to its intended recipients. XXD

Edit- This was submitted for Ryuuhiken's contest a while back, not for anything in mecha designers.

Hmmm mirco vibrations sounds nice. but would it run out of battery? or like shake itself up? [on a side note: MWAHAH half of my mechs are energy based]

If you ever watched Code Geass, you would understand that all those mecha have some ridiculous energy source that doesn't really make sense, but solves everybody's problems. And he can still shoot you or punch you or whatever, he would just be more vulnerable to your attacks. xD

hmmm.... doesn't the liquid fist destroy the robot itsself too?
traditional styled robots are more realistic than photoshopped ones, simply because mechanical and technical plans are made with computers already, and this way, the robot seems to have some rough edges and scratches, wich makes it look like it's been through a few fights already, instead of the digital art robots wich seem to have rolled out of factories because they're looking so fresh

I know what you mean, however, I know some pro's that can do some pretty convincing things. As for the Jala Vasha, they either use a directional wave, or the main part of the fist is not necessarily directly attached to the rest of the mech.

or they use short-range waves send from a projectile

it's the easiest way not to destroy himself while doing a liquid fist

I dnont know, the whole idea of the liquid fist was the fist part the close combat part.

but elsewise, others will just take the same armour as he has for protecting from the liquid fist?
Reply
:iconmodalmechanica:
ModalMechanica Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2009
No, he doesn't actually have an armor for that, It's an invisible energy wave that doesn't actually affect the Nightmare.

Not bad,the vibration thing does have a flaws though... "it can move through nearly any surface with ease (as well as ammunition)".While the idea sounds cool,making your Knightmare 9 times more powerful then erm god is rather cheap(although awesome XD).Also most ammunition is packed with explosives which when fired become armed.Whilst normal bullets would bounce off of your knightmare.(not go through)rocket,missles or explosives would explode immediately,the shrapnel would be useless but the blastwaves could easily exert massive pressure spikes.Lastly if your mech is constantly vibrating through things whats stopping it from falling throught the ground it stands on?In any case ver good work....Ill say youve improved quite well XD...

ModalMechanica Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2009
Well, Like I said, it is extremely vulnerable to energy weapons, and maybe the whole thing doesn't vibrate constantly and evenly throughout? Either way it is science fiction, and it is Code Geass, I mean, all the Mecha in that show are Godlike!!XD

Yes but remember you must make mecha balanced.If its defense is godly then you should drop one of its other areas of combat.I.E.
1 High attack + high mobility = low defense
2 High attack + high def = low mobility
3 High defense + high mobility = low attack
Im not saying the design is totally off,their are just some balancing issues to take care of.What I mean is with a "Tank gun" like that on its back it should be pretty slow.Like the Lancelot Conquista (actually slower in speed,but mobility (turning speed) is the same as flight enabled version)

Maybe the Indians were in a hurry. XXD Yeah the frame is modular, the Samudra doesn't necessarily need the gun, it simply has the option of equipping one. For example, instead of a flight pack, it has a cannon. Also, I wasn't to clear/sure about moving through things, either the mech just liquidates what it touches, if it touches, or it emits a frequency that causes micro vibrations in other things causing them to liquidate. But yeah, it is a bit unbalanced, that was the reason I made it vulnerable to other types of attacks. I guess though, if it needed to avoid an attack, it could just "dive" into the ground, or something. XD
