Mechbusted by Colourbrand Mechbusted by Colourbrand
A company of mercenary mechs, commanded by their leader in her CHP-2N Champion Heavy, commit a raid on a world on the border of Combine space.

Intelligence shows that the planet has no mechs or aerospace fighters; just local military forces which have conventional aircraft to defend the world with; Mechbusters.

Cock sure and convinced, and knowing of the limitations of said planes, especially in the battle of Sevren in 3024, they attack.

However, they are met with two full squadrons of these jets and in the resulting fight the mech force is torn asunder by free-falling ordnance, and high altitude AC/20 airstrikes.

What is left of her light/medium mech force flee but the Kuritans are not letting them escape – defeat and death seem certain to her and her damaged mech and friends.

I did this for two people who have been very supportive –Duzloo :iconduzloo:, and Robbe25 :iconrobbe25:.

Robbe designed the Madra (one with four SRM four’s) that are being shot up. He has been a supportive soul so here is my way of saying cheers! To get more facts - [link]

Duzloo loves the Champion mech a lot and has been a sweet supportive person over my art – so this is my way of saying thank you HUGS!! :)

The snow scene came into my mind because I wanted to depict somewhere cold for once – something I have seldom done. I am very proud how the mechbusters came out.

Enjoy!

Hmmm, can't tell which merc outfit is getting hammered but its a safe bet that its not the Wolf's Dragoons.

Any but the wolves.

Just a random collection of fools in walkers who think they are invincible - if only ;)

Cheers sir :D

You mentioned light and medium mechs. Assuming that these types made up the majority of the force this could be a botched Eridani Lighthorse op, but its hard to picture a top teir merc outfit screwing up this bad. Still it has been known to happen.

Nice thought sir - but its just a typical bunch of fools who think Mechs are brilliant against non-mechs, no matter the tonnage - the fools ;)

Cheers sir for looking :D

The dumb shmucks really should have brought a few Rifleman, Galahad or Jagermechs with em.

There is that - but them mechs tend to belong to houses and tend to be rare - thanks for popping by mind :)

It does depend on how well the mercs are funded. If they have the c-bills then the mech manufactuars will sell, or they can probably get em war surplus. The toughest one to get would be the Galahad as its a clan mech.

That is if one has the money :)

Most are scratched built, rare are those well cash sourced...
