Took a crack at the Valkyrie suit. Coming from orbit I gave it an array of RCS thrusters scattered around the suit as well as a pair of high powered flight engines on the back. There is also a pair of folding winglets to allow it a more controlled drop rather like a wingsuit. It can more or less fly on Earth standard atmosphere/ gravity worlds for short periods, limited only by reaction mass for its void engines. I don't see how it can carry a Neptune or any other weapon that feeds from and external drum system. Partly for weight but mainly because I'm not sure how to mount one without it interfering with the winglets or thrusters.
Its kind of a shame it happened with a noncanon design, but apparently not only has some of my artwork turned someone on to the Trese Brothers universe of games but one of them have asked my permission to build a 3D model of my concept of the Titan. Thanks to svidal. svidal.deviantart.com/
He made an update. Im almost tempted to get a copy of the file and send off for a 3D print to assemble and paint when its done. If i had the financing id love to hire him to make all the Templar armors and weapons, maybe even some Narvs.

That is really cool! Is he actually considering constructing that model, or is this more an exercise than an actual project? Either way, really awesome job dayan. Someone picking up your work to possibly print out is.... pretty amazing!
Constructing, no. I mean that you can email blender files to a 3d print firm, pay a fee and they send. A copy to assemble. I could probably pick up some tips from a guy I met that develops custom Battletech blanks to make molds of and sell resin model kits. It would be 31 flavors of awesome if the Treses games get popular enough one day to make that a viable business move on their part.
I don't mean to criticize dayan's art, and I know this thread is old, but it might make more sense for a Leviathan Titan to have 3 or 4 legs rather than 2 for more stability. Cory said they're for use deep within gas giants, so if they trip they might not be able to get up again under all that pressure and gravity (which would be bad news for the pilot). They couldn't trip so easily if they had 3 or 4 legs.
May your death be remembered by all... and stop confusing me with Zer0winds!
Lance weapons are capital-sized, light-channeled energy weapons. An "arc light" is projected from the Lance Iris (or the Lance Array Central Iris) and intersects the target -- that happens very fast, speed of light and all that.
Following target acquisition with the arc light, the Void Reactor is put to redline and discharged into the Lance's plasma reactors. These rapidly fill the arc light with conductive plasma, and the Void Reactor dumps a full charge into the target.

Hey, Cory Trese , I don't know if you realize this, but we already have Lance Arrays available to us. A few off the top off my head are the Light Lance Array, Starshot Lance Array, and the Starhawk(I think?)Lance Array. They are often lighter than their single Lance counterparts and do more damage. Unless you are talking about something else entirely.
