In my world front line assaults are done with Mechanized Assault Vehicles, or MAVs. They are kind of like the vehicles in the Mecha universe, but more armor than weapon, more humanoid, than purpose built. Think Pacific Rim only on half the size and not requiring double piloted mind sync blah blah blah.
They have projectile and energy type ranged weapons, but these can be absorbed long enough for an opponent to get in close due to recharge and reload times. They can be devestating in the right hands. But there is a class of pilot preferring heavy armor and a melee type weapon to get in close and beat the opponent into submission.
I've read this post on the best melee weapon for a super strength wielder and this post regarding why a giant mech would wield one. My question is what type of melee weapon would work best against this type of vehicle, wielded by a similar vehicle? Something pointed, something blunt, both, neither, energy variant, rocket assisted, mechanized like a cutting wheel?
Assume the vehicles are agile enough to perform hand to hand combat and do not suffer the same way humans do from blunt force trauma. Assume, that a MAV specialized for melee combat could be heavier for stability or even have stabilizing enhancements "bolted on". Assume that weapons wielded by humans have little affect on a MAV.
