UPDATE: Now as a wallpaper and remastered!
Ok, we all know the official Avatar Mk2 was not what fans were expecting, so back in the days of C&C4 I made my own version of the new avatar:[link]
It was more like a draft, but apparently it became popular among the fans, even without being a wallpaper, a few days ago I revisited my gallery and told me myself, hey, maybe I should update this images! And that's how we end here, with yet another wallpaper, this time with the advante of having a wacom to make things better, hope you like it, and here is the profile.
The AW-40X its an attempt by Nod science ministers to create a more flexible and less self-damaging walker after the MK1 and the AW-30 suffered of unfair disadvantages on the battlefield.
The first step was to rebuild the chasis into a more robust version capable to keep the avatar weapons operative even under the most grievous damage, while this means the AW-40X cant run away faster when suffering critical damage it can count on its weapons right to the very end.
The second step was the return to energy based weapons and an extensive work in the laser generators, with the application of new revolutionary lens which allow to modulate the laser output the avatar can now fire long-range, high-intensity, intermitent beams excellent against heavy targets or low-range, large-area, constant beams extremely effective against soft targets like infantry and buildings, it must be noted that the calibration to switch from one output to another takes a few seconds.
Finally, the AW-40X counts with a new self-repair system which can work both when the walker is operative or after suffering incapacitating damage.
