    Steampunk Walking Through Hell OOC

    *Cool background post here...* I will edit.

    -The Entente of Ebon-
    British Empire, Kingdom of France, Russian Empire, United States of America

    -The Central Federation-
    Germania, Autrian-Hungarian Empire, Kingdom of Italy, Ottoman Empire


    The year is 1909. The world's economy is booming as fresh access to raw resources from colonies drives innovation. The powers of Europe have formed alliances to protect their colonial interests in new territories. Uneasy peace exists between them; The Entente of Ebon and The Central Federation. Conflicting claims in Africa and Oceania have come to a head, and nations rally for volunteers to bolster their armies should war break out. Recruits with technical skills and education are in high demand to pilot huge war machines known as Stompers

    *The approximate layout of the vehicles is as follows:

    The main body consists of a roughly prolate spheroid (football shape) with a case mate (mounted in the hull) gun offset to it's left side. The armour is ~7" of steel sloped at 45 degrees.

    The driver sits at the football's point with a personnel hatch and number of periscopes to offer a good field of view forward and poor views of each side and to the rear. The driver controls the engine speed; direction, speed of travel; vehicle clearance.
    The main gunner sits slightly behind, to the driver's right. They have a number of periscopes and an aiming sight for the main gun, but poor viability of the vehicle's left. They have an emergency hatch to their right. They have a medium machine gun mounted at their station facing to the vehicle's right/forward arc. Their gunnery controls adjust the vehicle's bearing.
    The commander sits behind the gunner near the top of the footballs's center, to the gun's right.
    The commander has a cupola with 360 periscopes and a hatch. Behind the commander's seat is the radio for communication outside the vehicle. Mounted behind the commander's cupola on the hull is a heavy machine gun for ground and air targets.
    TBC

    The body is held up by six large legs with round, puck like solid rubber feet.
    Each leg has three points of articulation, a shoulder where it mounts to the hull, an elbow and a wrist that mounts the rubber puck. The vehicle can move across all terrain and has a clearance of 8'. The vehicle can be lowered all the way down so it's hull rests on the ground.
    When operating on roads the vehicle can rotate it's rubber feet and use them as wheels for faster travel. The vehicle is able to operate with two legs non-functional.


    You have completed months of classroom training leading up to this, the final test known as 'Walking through Hell', a gruelling week long live fire exercise where each unit's effectiveness is tested in combat before they are deployed to battle grounds. Your training class was loaded into transport truck and taken to the fields where your walkers rested.
    The crews were divided into two teams. One group tasked with holding a line, and your group tasked with breaking through. Each crew was sent to their vehicle while the Commanders rallied for a briefing.
