What's the name of that really tiny mech, with the claw? Only slightly larger than the pilot itself? I had an action figure of that mech.

Elemental? Technically not a 'Mech, it's a Battle Armor.

Looks like it... Only places I've seen it were that action figure and a couple instances during singleplayer missions in Mechwarrior 3.

I'd seen Elemental power armor before, but today I learned it's also a name for the 2-2.5 meter tall genetically enhanced supersoldiers inside!  Sorta like SPARTANs from Halo but more so.

moreso and drastically predating, but yeah. Also less so, too, though, as elementals aren't really special ops or anything like it, at least insofar as anything trying to get by outside an actual mech or heavy armor or whatever on btech battlefields are anything but. Basically just line infantry or somethin', if less suicidal than most IS infantry

Not very much space marine either, though. Iirc elemental gene tweaking and active production was still a thing. Also neither the elementals not their armor were particularly special, near as I can recall. If anything I'd almost draw a parallel to Uruk-hai in power armor or thereabouts.

Even with giant tanks wielding unfathomable firepower, there's still going to be something helpful about troops that can fit inside of a building, rather than flattening it.

Or walk behind a forest or hill without sticking up over the top.

You misspelled seance.  Are possessing Draignean?  Are you actually a ghost in the shell? You have to tell us if you are, that's the rule
