    Okay taking a shot in the dark here so bear with me.

    This idea always comes to mind when it comes to sci fi, however I don’t want this to be to game breaking and their use will be limited more so when it comes to operating in zero-g.  These units are meant for ground/planet side engagements.  They are a alternative to tanks when it comes to urban combat or when the terrain is unfavorable for them.

    Here are a couple of examples.  (Note: they are not mine and all credit goes to their creators.)

    We actually already have mechanized units like these covered under our Walking Armor Vehicle classification.

    12 meters tends to be the largest they get to be; as you said, they are alternative for other vehicles, and are not meant to be overly large like a “Gundam” or anything.

    No problem! It’s easy to miss where it’s located. We kind of wanted it that way to really “normalize” it as a concept. We don’t want walking-armor units to be seen as super special as many sci-fi universes make them, but it was important to use to include them because so many people love them.
