Production Notes

The Tigerwolf is the first terrorwalk developed in the Australo-Oceanian Commonwealth by the South Pacific Defense Industries, in order to provide a new terrorwalk model for the Franco-British Army. The design defines that of the third generation humanoid fighter, and as such, it surpasses even the Panther G-3 in terms of efficiency and combat performance.

The Tigerwolf is a direct descendant of the Panther, as exemplified by several notable similarities. The machine also featured universal weapon mounts pioneered by the Panther G-3, as well as a single search light on its head. The backpack is heavily modified from that of the Panther. Its jets still feature directional thrusters but with an additional 35% thrust output.

The Tigerwolf is a balanced, general-purpose terrorwalk, and thus can be equipped as its mission dictates. This versatility gives it the much needed flexibility in the modern battlefield.

The machine saw heavy mass-production, and surplus units became the third favorite terrorwalk (the first and second being the DB-6 and Panther respectively) in the arms market, particularly employed by the Franco-British Union and other wealthy European countries.


Side Notes
-Australo-Oceania: an expanded British Commonwealth comprised of Australia, French colonies and annexed Oceanian states
-Franco-British Union: technically the present-day United Kingdom, after a post-war merger with France, with the British monarch as the joint sovereign

Hah, finally, I'm done with the colored version of [link] . Color choosing took me pretty long here, and I really doubt this one would be any pleasing to the eye. As usual, I colored this with Photoshop, and used the same template as my recent colored mechs. Now about that insignia, it's a star from the Australian flag, with added red and blue borders (like the RAF circle). Hope the Aussies forgive me for that one ^^; .

i am sure for an antique it gets the job done the SPDI AC-9 96 mm assault cannon sounds like it does damage and I like big guns that go boom.

A bit expensive actually, considering it's an early third generation humanoid fighter, but cost still depends on the retailer. :D
