Using extremely large tanks is kind of counterproductive and really results in more weight and maintenance for negligible gain.

>>137561964
A high profile is not something you want for any sort of field artillery.

Not to mention the innate impracticality of something having legs.
Putting all the weight of something heavily armoured on two thin legs is utterly retarded because it would be way too fragile. Especially if you're going to use it as a firing platform.
But even if you would be able to solve these problems somehow, you'd only end up not being able to pass any complicated terrain because all your weight is distributed on a tiny surface area. The ground would give in and you'd get stuck or fall over.

Yes, tanks are more practical than mechs realistically speaking but it's fucking fiction so anything goes, which means mechs are usually portrayed as superior because more mobility, made of indestructium or whatever, close and long range, etc.

Are you living in the 20th century? No other vehicle will enter the battlefield until somebody has won the air battle and the entirety of the enemy army has been melted under heavy missile fire. Then you can send your infantry and a bunch of support vehicles to take control of whatever you were fighting for.

Actually, modern "racing" (reduced armor) tanks do drift.

>>137563785
Reminder that Gunbuster physics are based on irl "ether field" theory that is literally about dense fluid-like vacuum.

>>137563569
Main engines in "legs" may possibly provide better reactivity with neural linked pilot. Downside - it requires thrusters activity to maintain "body" position when "legs" move.
Anyway having pilots do maneuvering means either low-tech or full retard setting, tasks like that should be done by low-AI with pilot/captain giving abstract orders such as attack priorities.

You realize asteroids in the belt or any asteroid field are hundreds of miles apart at their densest point, right? If you charted a random straight line through a field you might not even see a single asteroid. Even if you did you'd have ample time to go around it.

I've said this many times: in space there's zero advantage to having a bipedal frame. Works great when there's gravity, sure, but in space there's zero advantage. The ideal frame would be a perfect sphere, something with infinite symmetry that can be easily controlled from any orientation since all orientations are identical from all approaches.

"and is not a substitute for propulsion"
You can move your body around your center of mass, but the CoM stays still.

You didn't even understand the article you linked, so I have no chance of edifying you.

The incorrect assumption in these arguments is that tanks and mecha would fulfill the same battlefield roles. A humanoid mech would provide superior performance in urban or otherwise cover-heavy environments due to superior ability to fire around corners with arm-mounted weaponry, the potential of vertical movement, and superior horizontal agility. Legs also give advantages in rough terrain, and a humanoid shape allows for passage of smaller spaces than a rigid box shape. If you just want artillery, a tank is obviously more sensible, but there are plenty of roles currently filled by infantry that mechs can perform better in.
>>
I think the Japanese obsession with mechs is rooted in their obsession with Samurai and martial arts. A bunch of planes and tanks shooting at one another looks nothing like two Samurai fighting.
