in one hit, and that tank has 400mm of solid steel armor.
Your mech will be smacked in the teeth at 2km and turned into a pile of rubble, and they dont even have to use the kinetic round, a HE or HEAT will do
against something so slow and so lighty armored.
Also, its a EXCELLENT target for anything, so tall and slow, you cant miss.
The idea of a combat mech is absurd. It is slower than modern tanks, has no armor, can mount no large guns due to recoil, has no way to store fuel or
an engine, cannot carry troops or anything else, cannot cross water, cannot move in urban areas, costs more than a battalion of tanks, and finally,
has no range.
If I failed to mention anything else wrong with them, my error.
Find me a mech that will survive getting hit by this going 4000 FPS:
