mechs would be unreliable, hard to maintain, and would posses very little advantage over conventional tanks like the Abrams. It would probably cost a
lot more too, and would be just as vulerable to RPGs or landmines. You would not only have to get the balancing systems right, but also protect them
and the numerous joints that if damaged, would render the unit as a whole helpless.
Thats pretty much why you dont See "Mechwarrior" mechs, Veritech fighters (the ones the transform into a humanoid form), or Gundam type mobile
suits, or humanoid robots weapons in general. Its just not worth it.
