Let's just pretend the thing in that drawing was never meant to be an Einherjar exo-suit. It's way too tall and I don'e like the design much anyway. Let's say it's some kind of small walker. Anything the pilot sits in is considered a walker. The mechs in Avatar and the Matrix would both be considered very small walkers.

As I said, the Einherjar power armor exo-suits are like the armor worn by space marines in StarCraft or Warhammer 40k. I'm thinking definitely closer to the Terminator suit in size, not the Dreadnaught or Dreadknight. The wearer's legs go directly in the leg parts, their arms inside the arm parts. The Einherjar suits are capable of operating inside starship corridors. They are only about 8-10 feet tall.


This link may not have an accurate comparison of heights (let alone if it is real) but this has a chart that shows average human height compared with 9-10 ft tall skeletons

I used it as a reference for the stuff for my own story just to know how tall something is like an armor or other species. Anyways, is there a Blazer suit that has non-human anatomy design like for example, Blazer suits designed for Slashrim and Achmer?

I could be wrong but judging the size of the Xarkon exosuit when compared to the Xarkon soldiers, I think it is similar to the AMP suits in Avatar (the wiki for the movie states that it is simply 4 meters tall) or APU robots from Matrix in terms of size.

I looked at the design of the human military uniforms and compared it to a picture of the Achmer's land suit designed for combat and I was wondering, are their uniforms powered in the same manner as the Nanosuits of Crysis franchise or is it similar to the MJOLNIR armors of Halo franchise or do they rely more on either cybernetic implants or nano-implants? Do they posses a shoulder mounted weapon like the Predators or a wrist mounted guns or both like those of the War Machine armor from Iron Man franchise, specifically the Iron Man 2 movie?

Also, do they have heavy soldiers wearing similar armor to Starcraft franchise's Terran Marines or is it more like the robotic Marauders (the humanoid design) from Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles or do they rely in light walkers for mechanized support in urban areas?

Yeah, but that is like a traditional grenade launcher.
Or do you mean like an MGL?
Or the Pallad-D?


Well actually it is more like the new grenade launcher made by Metal Storm, here it is http://www.metalstor...ent/view/37/92/ and the video for the concept of the weapon:

It is like have all three grenade shell stacked in the tube of the weapon and from what I have read, it uses electric firing system and can be fire in semi-automatic mode unlike the M203, M320, GP-25 and AG36 which after one shot, you either reload it or switch to the rifle to fire back.

Just a few questions. Are the Starfire small arms (rifles, carbines, pistols) used as special weapons or heavy weapons by the infantry since Blazer technologies already combine the concept of inflicting kinetic damage and incendiary damage (specially if the intended target are not shielded and wears inferior mesh-armor)?

Also are there superpose load weapons like this http://en.wikipedia....i/MAUL_(weapon) but a grenade launcher type since I think I find this type of weapons better than the traditional attached grenade launcher.
