Here we see a near future military combat vehicle that uses legged locomotion. In the universe it was designed in it is about the largest legged system that is practical. Such systems are generally used in urban combat or in severely broken terrain. Legged vehicles tend to have more vulnerable points and slightly weaker armour, but are more agile and versatile. Any larger than this and it really wouldn't perform well in a closed area such as a city. Elsewhere tanks and helicopters still rule the battlefield.
