The Giant Death Robot is the toughest unit in the game, half again as strong as the next land unit (Modern Armor). It could take on literally anything, including cities, without fear of being outmatched. On top of that, it can move after attacking, making it strategically flexible. Although it doesn't benefit from defensive terrain, its simple brute strength is compensation enough.
However, the Giant Death Robot is a melee unit, making it susceptible to ranged units; so, it should not be relied on as your whole military.
The "mech" is a giant bipedal mechanical robot armed with a variety of missiles, gatling gun arms, laser-beam eyes, and a deadly kung-fu punch. Although not currently found on the modern battlefield, no doubt across the world governments and evil corporations are secretly developing these metal behemoths even as we speak. After these giant death robots begin to be built, many older weapons will become obsolete - such as 19th century Cannons, Ironclads, and a few others. Some military weapons will still be used such as Tanks and a few others. Space combat will become more commonplace and countries will begin building Space Marines to defend their colonies on Mars and other outposts in the solar systems. With the Birth of the Concept of Supranational Union, such as European union and other unions in real life, our world is actually moving towards world peace and away from the Large Scale combat witnessed in World War I and II. It is unlikely that in real life these Giant Death Robots would be needed due to the increased cooperation among nations.
