How do you mean, exactly?
What makes a WW2 inspired design to you?

Gundam looks to futuristic.

It needs to have the impression that they're working with technology that was around in WW2.

The Tiger was a metal box, but it was a cool metal box that looked imposing.
That's just plain metal boxes without any of the coolness or imposing look of the Tiger.

I think it's quite imposing when you take into account the capabilities of the witch inside.

I got a something for you, it's called any WWII documentary.

>>13747793

T34 is the denominator for the rocket launcher on top of the Sherman.

So yes, it's an M4 Sherman, but with a T34 attached.

there's plenty of good ww2 inspired GERMAN mechs. It's pretty easy to accomplish, since you just make something blocky, ape some minor details like the viewports, and paint it grey or one of their wacky camoflauges.

There are precious few good soviet mechs, since nobody gives a shit, and there are very few good merican WW2 inspired mechs because the cast structure look is surprisingly hard to pull off.

this sentry bot does a decent job of capturing the look, but it's more based on the very similar korean war look.

But if they were working with WWII technology they wouldn't have mechs.

Also Maschinen Krieger.

On demand. Early designs looked like some mechanic ogres and gnomes and similar shit. Gyan was literally a knight in a suit of armor. But from OVAs onwards Zeon got naziboner, and started wearing Wehrmacht uniforms, and giving their grunt mobile suits steel helmets.

They claimed that they fought the good war and that the two genocides they attempted between WW1 and 2 were not actually a thing.

But then again, the difference between dropping sarine gas bombs and burning sleeping women and children alive with Napalm is academic.
