Default Metal Gear!

Since the latest Metal Gear Solid game is coming out in a few weeks, I figured I should do a write-up on the Gear that kicked the franchise off, REX!

REX is a nuclear equipped walking g battle tank intended to fire stealth nuclear warheads from an arm-mounted railgun. Its mundane arsenal includes two 30mm vulcan cannons, antitank guided missiles, and a free electron laser. It is protected by advanced composites that make it almost invulnerable to conventional firepower (back in 2005)

Here's a site with pics for those who want them.

I design this in MgT SRD vehicle design, and so i had to do a little "counts as"-ING worth the weapons. The 35mm railgun is being used for the railgun. There is scant specs as to what size REXs railgun really would have been. I also disregarded the spaces that you have to keep track of in the design process to keep to the canon specs. This design is 25.5 space points over allowances.
