Mecha - Dokuhebi by ModalMechanica Mecha - Dokuhebi by ModalMechanica
The Dokuhebi (translated to: Fanged Snake) is an unmanned unit designed exclusively for close quarters combat. At its highest It stands roughly 8 feet, but can lower itself to about half the height, additionally high output electro magnetic actuators in the leg allow it to gain momentum quickly, as well as gain significant jumping distance, making it ideal for moving through more tight refined spaces. Its armor and speed make it suitable for taking on light infantry, however in packs, the Dokuhebi have proven useful at taking out heavier amour as well. Using an advance sensory array located primarily in the head, it can easily identify targets in complex environments, and can also coordinate with other units, to partake in "hunting" maneuvers, or to take on larger foes. The unit's main armaments are two shoulder mounted vibroblades, however it can also equip most infantry based weaponry. Furthermore, the dokuhebi can equip built in countermeasures bult into the chest region, such as heat scattering smoke launchers, or miniature EMP devices, to level out the playing field should it be found in a less suitable environment for its combat operations.

what is it's size and weight? the feet don't look like they would support the unit's weight very well if you follow soil mechanics (i.e. 14lbs per square inch) Looks great!

Overall It is a good looking design, the artwork is excellent. the shading and weathering makes it look very solid.
My only suggestion concerns the feet they are rather fragile looking and too small for the vehicles mass. if it used some form of Mag-lev or anti-grav the small feet wouldn't be an issue since the feet would only be used for landing.

wahhh!!! Shoulder weapons!! my favorite!! >.<
anyway. fantastic.
I have been reading the other comments down below, and many has mentioned about it's feet......
well....the legs are fantastic, it's electro magnetic actuators....wow. :D
even though it's feet are small. it's alright, it's a unique design and well, since it already has alot of weight on him already, if it had bigger feet, i think it would slow him down a bit.....maybe....i don't know. I'm just guessing. :D

so fantastic job!! :DD

Awesome mech! The tactics and armament info as well is great. (Noone really gives a size reference when they design these, I thought it was a big mech).

other then the feet, its a very nice design. Maybe something a little more suiting the design as a whole would have worked better?
But other then that its still a very nice mecha. XD I always love weapons hanging off shoulders for some reason. O.o;

The design is great but, I think the legs are not suited for the speed that you said i goes at the end they look fragile, still I like how the overall design goes goood job.

Interesting, reminds me of the armed suits used in Ghost in the Shell. Specifically the Marine models, the torsos are quite similar.

It seems to remind me of a two-legged Tachikoma, but that might just be me with the 'hunting in packs' thing.

A wonderful design, but I'd think the torso might be a little more squat, the same with the head. Or at least, the head closer to the body. It also might be that the joints are a little too exposed-looking to me but...eh!

Awesome all the same!

:iconmodalmechanica:
ModalMechanica Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2011
lol probably because it is blue, and AI controlled. Otherwise, there isnt to much of a design similarity, the tachikoma is more rounded out isnt it?

And thank you~
