Tsugumori (Type-17 Garde Shiratsuki Re.)

20.0k Ian_Yashima  13 days ago

Thanks for all precious Upvotes and Spotlights! (:D)

TSMGLR1.png
From Japanese anime Knights of Sidonia (2014, based on the manga of Tsutomo Nihei), the Garde (military mech in the story, called Morito in Japanese) piloted by the protagonist Nagate Tanikaze. Type-17 Morito was developed by Toa Heavy Industries 100 years before the story and became the legend that protected Sidonia (the massive starship of human beings) from the invasion of hostile alien species Gauna.

Tsugumori is designed by Mr.Nihei. It looks simple but impressive. The huge thruster backpack brings it incredible speed and acceleration, and the slender white figure gives people the impression of a glorious knight. It is powered by Hyggs Particle, which works as both fuel and weapon.

And I tried my best to reduce part count as usual, so 526p only~

(actually about 70p is for logos)

Controls

AG1 activate PID float for flight.
LandingGear switch between normal mode and cruise mode.
Throttle thruster output.
Also, when Throttle=0 or pitch angle>-60,
Pitch for moving forward/backward, otherwise for moving up/down (the directions of Tsugumori's body)
Brake speed down and move backward (the pose is different)
Yaw turn (I recommend you to do fast turn only when your speed is under 5000km/h, or you may lose control for a while.)
Roll move sideways, also help you turn more flexibly.
VTOL adjust pitch angle (also when you VTOL up/down, you can turn faster.)

You can reach a speed higher than 10000km/h at cruise mode stably. (full Throttle, Pitch to the top, near the sea level.)

AG2 enable walking function. (no running function this time because not so practical, but you can reach a speed about 36km/h.)
Throttle walk Yaw turn

Armaments

Trim to fine tune shooting angle/attack pose of these weapons if you need.

Hyggs particle cannon

fire after load, consume Hyggs particle (fuel). thanks to PlanariaLab for his auto-aiming ft (works in the range of 7km)
(when you are at cruise mode, vertical ±15° only. so if you are high up in the sky, switch to normal mode to attack the targets below)

high fire rate Gatling gun

TSMGTL.gif
AG3 to activate, loaded with 6000 rounds actually (another 6001 are cartridges for decoration)

2x Eishin Sakuretsudan (missile)

TSMes.gif
AG3 to activate, you can still launch them as rockets even if you haven't selected target.

2x high vibration blade

TSMVB.gif TSMCUT.gif
AG4 to activate, for close combat. You will automatically face to the target, then FireGuns and Roll to attack when you get closer. but the retractable structure is weak, caution explosions of the the damaged targets.

ballistic acceleration device

TSMCN2.gif
AG5 the main weapon, do extraordinary damage, but the recoil force is high.
(Activate4 at the same time when you attack targets and you will find something interesting)😏

feel free to express your opinion in the comment.

Enjoy it~

special thanks to:

ps.
the version using extended ballistic acceleration device
and the version equipped with Kabizashi will be uploaded later.

    @ACOGF
    Well, I personally think Kai2 is not so classic as this one, and it has more details which cost more parts.

    @Ian_Yashima the high vibration blade and the main weapon is the thing that make the mech powerful enough to destroy mech with a powerful armor

    Very cool mech. But I must say tho, Eiko Yamano’s death was pretty chilling.
