Unlike Stratus, I've never made a proper version of Shadow. Nari Varayana is the pilot for this Craft.

Shadow is the codename given by Nari after he acquired this Craft. This Heavy Artillery Craft Series 10 (HAC - 10), has a right arm rifle port, and the unit is built for heavy recoil and endurance, which allows it to carry missiles and a heavy artillery rifle.

After Nari acquired this Craft and was not able to sell it to an arms dealer. He later adapts this Craft as his main and replaces the previous rifle attachment on Shadow, which was damaged during the raid. The new rifle is a custom nameless attachment designed by Winston - Nari's engineer. The rifle has been known to hit targets over 21 km, and shoots standard tank shells with slight modifications.

The Shadow can replace its lower legs with land tracks and be converted into a FORTRESS class Craft. The legs and arm + rifle port can be replaced by flight capable attachments and parachutes and be converted into a VALKYRIE class Craft.

Nice and playable, would work great in a mecha anime and as merchandise. Should make a great toy.

So this is the sniper guy's Mech? looking very solid and versatile.

Just an input. 155mm cannon can hit target at 10km and some of them can hit target at 30km. So i think you should increase the sniper's range.

Ok will do. I don't know too much about weaponry and I was hoping someone would give me some input about that :)

Thank you sir :D

No problem. I'm also still learning to improve my knowledge. It's quite surprising indeed when knowing what current military technology is capable of.

Really great mech design. The upper body looks great, particularly the HUGE ASS RIFLE *drool*.
Not so crazy about the lower body. The crotch is pretty bulgy, though I suppose that would be more realistic. Also, the feet seem too small to support a gun that powerful.
Great color scheme though. Black and Gold is THE BEST of all possible color combinations.
Can't wait to see the finished product!
