Panzer Project-Quetzalcoatl (Pacific Rim Inspired) by emersontung Panzer Project-Quetzalcoatl (Pacific Rim Inspired) by emersontung
Double-click for MAXIMUM FULLVIEW GOODNESS.

Recently did a bunch of robot and monster concepts inspired by Pacific Rim. If you can't tell I'm pretty excited about the movie.

Here is the experimental Battleship Class panzer, created to deal with monsters with flight capabilities. Free internets for those who can guess the inspiration for the color scheme/concept.

----

Panzer Project Designation "Quezalcoatl"
Mark 5 Panzer
Height: 325'
Weight: 2,145 tons
Quetzalcoatl is the newest and largest Panzer unit deployed in the field, designed for maximum carnage with an absurdly large blade that projects a shaped field of plasma at the edge.
Quetzalcoatl als features relatively lightweight armor and extremely precision machined components to allow it to "transform" into a large flying platform, featuring a prominent nose-cone.
The flight mode allows Quetzalcoatl to act as a rapid-response unit, capable of circumnavigating the globe in just six hours, and featuring variable pitch thrusters to allow it high manoeuvrability to deal with like-sized flying enemies.
Quetzalcoatl also features several triple barreled deck guns to use as distraction methods against larger enemies, or to shoot down its targets midair.

"There was a time, in the era of great chaos, when the earth and the moon were at war with each other...a daredevil from the moon piloted a bizarre aircraft. It was feared, and because of its shape, called....EINHANDER."

The color concept is from that of the Endymion air fighters from the 2.5D SHMUP game known as Einhander, created by SquareSoft(Now Square Enix) in the years 1997, 1998. Though few people know about this game, it is still considered to be a classic in my own way.
Nicely done.:iconclapplz:

okay i've been puzzling at this for five minutes. how does the nosecone/sword blade get to the front if the rest of the arm swings back to the wings in the rear? does it detatch for manual positioning with the right arm or something?

The inspiration is without a doubt Gundam Wing, the blue, white, red an yellow all reflect that, PLUS the alt form is like Wing's 'bird mode.'

My EYES! This is so BEAUTIFUL! But don't expect to make art in 2014 based off on a ps1 game that isn't even available officially as digital download [Einhänder <3 ] and expect people to know about such an underrated gem. Square Enix just put the kabosh on a bunch of good franchises and won't make sequels or remakes. Like, EVER. :c
