I see a flaw, it is missing arms and melee weapons. Sure it has a lot of long range and mid ranged weapons that could pack a punch, but it could easily get knocked on the ground, and this looks as if you are to use this to do a heavy push, but something that has more agility and spend can go behind it and decimate it. So this is like a German Tiger tank and something that is more focus on speed and agility could defeat it like a group of Sherman tanks.

:iconphoenixthinkingplz:Thought provoking indeed.

To serve specific purposes, every war machine has a weakness or two. Judging by the loadout, this might be a siege class. Like all siege machines they are designed to execute nonstop ranged bombardment and not suppose to handle short range. It's a common tactical sense that this mech should ride to the battlefield with infantry escort.

So why there's smoldering mech on the ground? Look further back at the spectator seats. This is most likely a showboating to garner public's confidence to the military.

Hmm, ok. But do you have anything that is lighter and more agile to help protect it? If you are going to use it in battle against other mechs, I gantry won't be enough and plus what about air support. Like you said a siege class, but the main question is that can it be used in open combat or defense? If it's offensive and mainly for sieges or even artillery support, it's going to need that.
Plus how good is it used in different terrains, if it is used in a mountain siege or a rocky surface, how is against fast moving units going down and high up bunkers and infantry? Also what about if forests how can it lock on units behind cover and since it is slow moving I'm guessing, it would be an easy target for traps and mines.
So how good is this mech in different battle situations And their location. It all depends on how you use your weapons and troops in Amy given battle situation that can turn the tide of battle.

I think you yourself can answer those questions (Also, I'm not the artist or the commissioner). It all depends on the tactical prowess of the pilots and commanders, how they employ other units to cover their weakness.

Though I can say that the best protection from flanking attacks should be light / heavy infantries, which is the most mobile and versatile combat unit to date.

What scares me about this aren't the miniguns, or the turbo-lasers, or the rocket pods, or the dead enemies.  It's the NASCAR-esque ads on the Hammerhead, which I fear would be the end result if we ever get actual gladiatorial fights back.
