I think that I'd advocate for either heavier wings or the jetpack/rocket pods. Something like a drill/buzzsaw attachment for one arm might also be a good idea, since it's part of the Zupponn Mining Co. It would be more versatile in both combat and noncombat roles. Otherwise, nice work. It looks solid, something that can take punishment and then dish it back out. :D

You do make a good point. The wings sort of don't fit with the rest of the dreadnut.

I remember when I first made the ZMC that I tried to keep the theme with drills and mining lasers, but I've been getting away from that a bit. The ZMC has had to militarize more ever since they were hired by the Immortals.

Also, I recently changed the gatling gun on the left arm. I'll get some new pics up when I can.

Okay, here are 2 pics of the new and improved gatling gun:

I'm not sure if I like the chain going through the barrels or not, so let me know what you guys think.

A quite literal interpretation of the chaingun, I like it!

Wait, a chaingun doesn't shoot chains?

Not sure if you're trolling.

Still. A chaingun gets its name not from the ammunition it fires but from its firing mechanism. While most weapons operate thanks to the recoil generated from the combustion of the powder mixture in the cartridge chamber (allowing the weapon to fire continuously, the principle of most automatic weapons), chainguns have a very powerful, external electric engine that is connected to the actual gun with a chain, something close to that of a bicycle of motorcycle. Without having to rely on recoil, chainguns are usually more accurate, controllable and reliable, since the cycle that the chain and engine create; load, fire, extract and eject the ammunition.
They are usually mounted in IFVs and warships due to their characteristics that make them tolerable to high caliber ammunition.

A common mistake is naming a gatling gun/minigun, a chaingun, since the previous ones use a system of multiple revolving barrels and not the chain system, which I believe is the case here.

EDIT: But hey, :sparta: so if you want, fuck that and grind some chains down your foes!

I remember seeing that for the first time in either one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies or Master and Commander and thinking that it was something made up only for the movies. Very cool and awesome weapon though. :)
