The big difference between 'Mechs and tanks is that 'Mechs can walk. The reason the military doesn't use 'Mechs is because 1 - the technology hasn't been figured out completely. 2 - they'd be bloody expensive.
Also, while the suit may have something that comes down to cover the face, the leg armour is very thin compared to the rest of the armour, especially considering that the legs don't need to be able to move in order for this 'Mech to function.
so i was wondering ... were do u get all your experience for your dope ass mech's i mean like artists, or cars, or anything ?
i am able to draw a little bit of mecha but i just cant get these kind of sweet design on paper .. and i really need to design a few for my 3d projects .. so well if u got some sites or artist names i could check out that would be great
