How could an alien made of anti-matter walk out onto your lawn?

And fleets of zeppelins!

See? SEE! This is what happens when the Russians get double iron, horses, and Uranium and extra hammers per tile on strategic resource tiles. They get Giant Death Robots early. Siberian Riches, my ass.

And you thought GDRs are fictional.

That situation clearly called for the use of light mechs. Some Jenner or Urbanmech would have been far more effective in that environment. Although the PPC equipped Marauder is a good choice in the chilly Russian landscape.

Maybe that'd keep the PoS from overheating every 30 seconds.

Uh, don't you mean robotech geeks? That's clearly a Zentradi Officer's battle pod.

Honestly, I'm just happen TFA called it a "BattleTech Marauder" rather than a "Robotech/Macross Zentraedi Officer's Pod". Suck on THAT, Harmony Gold!

Who needs robots when you have giant three wheeled tanks?

And, yes, that is a man standing on middle top of it. The Tsar tank. It was supposed to be held in the rear then race forward along radiating lines of roads to attack any on-coming threat. Complete failure.

Dammit I told the Tzar not to trust those Gundums, but to go with good solid Linebarrels or Knightmare Frames.

Unlike the Russians, we have Sky Captain and his doxy to save us from the giant robots.

Now that's just lazy. A cursory Google confirms that Kerensky never piloted a Marauder.

For the love of Mike.

In violation of my orders? But I haven't done anything to these miserable micronians; at least, not yet. In the centuries to come, if any of them are left alive, they will speak with terror, the name Lenin!! HAHAHAHA!
