The AT-999 not only has its own theme song, but shares it with the battlefield.

  • Well able to remove obstacles from its path

  • Multiple sensor and comm systems ensure resistance to jamming

Weaknesses:

  • Extremely slow and extremely heavy
  • Unable to maneuver in tight quarters
  • Unable to deal with fast moving ground targets easily
  • Damage to the main reactor will result in a colossal explosion which will destroy the vehicle (and probably the local area)
  • Slow fire rate for primary weapons due to power charge requirements inherent in twin-linking the weapons

Description:

The AT-999 is the first third-generation ground vehicle produced by MandalArms. It is built around its top-mounted command structure with all the communications and observation gear a commander could want, and the massive firepower of a mobile battle station, allowing this command vehicle to exercise a significant say in any major engagement.

Designed to strike terror into the enemies of the Clans of Mandalore, the AT-999 stands tall, armoured thickly, and armed with a plethora of heavy and point defense weaponry.

 

She somewhat resembles the first-generation AT-99, but is almost two and a half times the size and weight, with the requisite heavier defences and armaments to complement its immense size. Though not as large as some of the modified construction droids MandalArms has refitted, it is a far more heavily armed beast.
 
The AT-999 can protect itself from starfighters and ground vehicles, as well as engaging ground troops. It can be somewhat vulnerable if left alone, where it can be overwhelmed by serious continuous fire, or swarming fast-moving ground units.

 
This is usually offset by the fact an AT-999 is almost universally used at the centre of an army, and is rarely deployed alone.  With such an expensive and time-consuming production, these units are produced individually, and customised at need.

Greetings, 

 

This aesthetic has been popular recently! It looks pretty intimidating and I can definitely see the appeal. I love the song choice. That's a nice touch.

 

All that being said, we definitely need to look at some things. First and foremost would be the state of the submission itself. We all tend to emulate things that we like in our creations but there's a line we have to be careful not to cross. This submission very closely  resembles the Warhammer 40K Titan. It features the same art, a very similar name, and is even referred to as a "Castle-like" structure. Some of the phrasing utilized in the description is also fairly similar to the wiki article. 

 

Even some of the features/strengths/and weaknesses match up: Such as, the Titan requiring enormous amounts of energy and weapons that retain a slow rate of fire. Even the Dovin Basals are utilized to simulate the Void Shield generators that the Warhammer Titans have. Dovin Basals essentially create the same effect. 

 

We will need to see some changes and or updates so that this submission is not quite so on the nose. Changing the name, etc, would be a good start to truly make it your own. 

 

Once that has been been completed I have some notes for you in the spoiler below. But, the most important thing right now, is to take care of the issue I outlined above for you. 

 

Please feel free to tag if you have any questions or if I can help in any way. Thank you!

Kaine Australis You did very well, very quickly kind sir! I do see one note still in the description about it being a "Forge Titan" still though. Could that be nixed?
