(Enter Announcer with Southern Accent)

Well, Hey dar yall! If yer just like me, you luv yer dog. But if you aint got one, then yous might wanna git you one. Dogs are one of mans best friends. They'll guard yer home, protect yer family, even smell out them pesky varmits that be eattin yer crops.

Now I know that there be some of them there 'Animal Rights groups' or whatever, spouting all sorts of words like 'Animal cruelty', and 'equal rights' and what have ya. But I just might got da thing you'll be needin if having dogs is not alright with your countryfolk. We call them Core Hounds

ImageCore Hound

This here robot dog aint need feedin, waterin, groomin, or pooper-scoopin. And best of all, yall not git them letters in your post box about your mistreatment of yer pets, though I don't reckon anyone round here be that cruel. Especially to them faithful canine companions. Still, havin yerself a robot dog is next best thing if you can't have the real one.

Shoot, they's even come with parts needin for different uses, I tell you what. We've got three of them here already to go to their new homes, once thems git picked up o'course.

ORANGE: d6Ra d6Ra d8Ra Long Range Missiles, d6B Armored Head Gear
TAN: d6Rd d6Rd Back Cannon, d6B d6B Lots of Spiked Plates, d6Y Tail Antenna
WHITE: d6B Hind Shield, d6Y Tail Antenna, d6G Back-Mounted Thruster, d8G No Ranged Weaponry

So come on down and git yerself a trusty faithful Core Hound. A Mans, and Frames, Best Friend

AWESOME!
I love the legs in the front, they look really cool. And although the eye setup doesn't really scream "dog" to me, these really rock it. I love the armored ones, the orange one gives an awesome "tough beetle" vibe while the leg armoring on the other two is great.
I especially love how the base frame is made of mainly just four kinds of pieces 8-)
Great job!

I really like the core hound idea, I feel the white color one resembles a "canine" the most. I like how the frame is a good design to base a four legged frame off of. And I hope you don't mind if I use your frame as base to build a four legged frame in the future.:) I do have a question though, since I'm still in the early stages of the MFZ learning curve, can an unmanned frame take the battle field?

I would not mind in the slightest. in fact I hope to see what you come up with. Sharing ideas is one of the reasons why I hang out in the hanger, so please go right ahead.

As someone who is also slightly unsure about the overall universe of Mobile Frame Zero, I do not see a reason why not. But if you are unsure, I would say that it's a Frame suit for a trained canine. Military, Security, Police and other law enforcement agencies use trained canine units (Attack dogs, Drug detection dogs ect) so it would make sense that it would still be practiced in the MFZ universe, but this is just my observation. When in doubt, I was told that it's the players final decision.

Thanks guys. I actually own 5 dogs myself (Toy and Teacup size poodles.). Although the Core Hounds only bare a slight resemblance to canines, I thought they were good enough to share. I'm currently waiting for another parts order so I can get a full company built. Got an idea of a company with 1 handler and 4 attack dog frames. I'll keep you posted how it turns out.

In the Solar Calendar lore, frames have sentient pilots. But, it's kind of a core game tenet that on your table, you can do anything you want. Nobody here is going to call you out or anything. Imagination is encouraged.
