Looks very similar to my Trailblazer design.  :P
Same weight, same weapon, same special equipment, different armor. ^^
Obviously, I commend your design.  ;D

Hm... seems like I even commented on the design back then. Must have slipped my mind. But what do they say? Brilliant minds think equal? :P

edit: The Mimetic armor approach seems actually preferable.

Yep, Mimetic + DWPs are a perfect match. DWPs mean slow suits and have a minimal slot requirement. Mimetic requires slow movement to work well and has a high slot requirement, leaving little space for weapons.

Agreed.
Didn't "see" the mimetic option for this suit because I started with the weapons and quipment before I thought about armor. Strange, with assault suits my first thought generally is "Mimetic armor viable?"
For some weird reason that initial thought seems to be limited to assault suits. :P

Well, I first thought about a 'Bazooka Design' with a single heavy weapon, or maybe it was just about packing the heaviest available weapon into the smallest suit possible.^^
Then when I actually set out to do it, clamps came next, because why a heavy if no transport?
I really like blakist equipment, so "Is Mimetic viable" is a question I ask with every possible design, including Lights.^^
Then again, setting out to build a suit that is centered around a 900 kg Blakist weapon, the armor kinda comes naturally. ;)
Btw, it also works great with the clamps, because of the movement rules.
The Anti-BA variant is also great, though overall, it's really a design to fit FWl or Republic better, what with blakist weaponry, David Gauss Rifles, and not being a Quad.
