Light Mech GIAT Quebec by Shabazik Light Mech GIAT Quebec by Shabazik


The GIAT Quebec produced by the ubberGeek des Industries de l'Armée de Terre is a Light Mech produced for the Stornkold federal government of Beauté, but later as well was meant for exportation by the Ubergeek group.

One of the several customers of the GIAT Quebec was the megacorporation Azimuth Pharmaceuticals for their military branch, the AZPHAR Private Military Division.

The military arm of Azimuth Pharmaceuticals basically utilize a wide variety of infantry armors, artillery guns, light armored vehicles (LAV), Armored Personal Carrier (APC), Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFV), Main Battle tanks (MBT), Self-propelled Anti-Aircraft Artillery and Missiles (SPAAG/SPAAM) for their land forces, aside of a variety of ultra-light, light, cavalry and medium mechs.

This diversity it mean problems for their logistics and as well when training the aFra's -artificial human- crews, but is said they trade logistics for a variety of mechs to confuse their opponents, and is said they also deliberately use downgraded variants with less armor and other protection systems (without their crew knowing ) to either keep their opponents guessing as to what is their real strength, or because the operational costs of mechs.




Commission for Anonymous Deviant of his company Azimuth Pharmaceuticals private forces.

Long since the last time I designed a Mech! Some of my very first entries in my scrapbook in dA wher ein fact loads of mechs done in the 2006-2007. XD

As one can easily tell, my mech designs are influenced by Mechwarriors / Battletech... all comes back to my childhood, when I see a 90's cartoon that mixed drawings... and very crappy in retrospective 3D work. But as it was the first time I see that, it was very impressive!-

Some other of the commissions of Azimuth Pharmaceuticals, aFra's clones and so:

Actually, while is classified as a light mech, it's more on the side and weight of a medium mech, but due problems on the armor distribution and thickness of it, it can't fulfill heavier combat roles, being relegated to a secondary, support role.

I'm from Chile, but the Quebec name it's because the fictice weapons factory that produces the mech is a sort of french and french canadian company. :3

As well, was as "hidden gift" for a quebecois dA friend.

Many thanks!

LoL ok, cause im from Quebec :)and Its rare to see other french canadian here so I was surprised to see a canadian province here XD

I like the name: AZIMUTH

but the funniest facts is...Azimuth is something that astrologer use in the prediction and calculation of meteor and other celestial corps's directory.

so i think it fits pretty well the context of a millitary/pharmaceutic company. Il be shure to watch for your works to come XD

keep up the good work!

That looks very much like something out of battletech, like a mad dog or something, except with very unique details on it :)

That's because when designing "mechas", I prefeer by far the designs of Battletech and Mechwarriors, than others -like the ones of anime and manga, like the Gundams, for example-

I like as well the mechas of Macross/ the first "generation" of Robotech, thought! :3

It's so cool that you learned how to draw mechanized stuff before people! Artistically, I think that you learned to fly before you learned to walk!

Yeah, you have some real monster mechs in your scraps. This is indeed only medium sized. Very nice and clean art though! These new clone girl designs look great on it!

Thanks! But I wasn't very good. Just better drawing the vehicles than my classmates! XD

and yes, the Assault and heavy mechs are indeed heavy!

Man. If I didn't know for certain that I'm straight, I'd start thinking I wasn't; whenever I pull up your art, my eyes go straaaaight to butts or clevage. I think that's just for everybody, but seriously. The robot didn't even phase me at first because her butt was RIGHT THERE. WTF KATIE.

There isn't a standard designation for the models: This mech for other customers can be classified as a medium mech.

There are (in my nebulosa of Ots) Ultra-light, light, Cavalry, medium, heavy and Assault mechs. There are as well specific purpose mechs: space-mechs (designed to fight in space), artillery mechs, and anti-aircraft mechs, both in supporting roles, and as well the supposed mechhunters, but who later became obsolete.
