i think the knife would work better if it were mounted to the torso or a leg, someplace where either arm could access it

Looks a little thin, I hope that thing has some Reinforce Fields on the inside ^o-o^

Doesn't have to be super sturdy if it's just a small bot. Still more resilient than a human.

True enough, but he's also a bigger target. Someone designed for medium fire support as he seems to be outfitted for is gonna draw a lot of fire, though. Armor should be a focus.

Armor is a philosophy, this robot is built around mobility (like a human) and delivering the firepower of several soldiers simultaneously with precision. Realistically it's not very hard to penetrate armor, infantry are capable of carrying anti tank weapons, and even modern rifles are now capable of using munitions which can penetrate light armored vehicles. A small bot like this is not capable of carrying enough armor to withstand penetration before it would be slowed down enough to be vulnerable to the next grade of anti armor weapons.
Basically, this bot doesn't need heavy armor, because it will be avoiding weapons fire that it is vulnerable to.

I understand what you're saying, but again, for someone whose supposed to be purposed for supporting fire, it would help to be able to resist glancing shots.

It can, the only shots that are going to take it down are hits to it's computer or power source, or several to it's locomotion. Glancing shots are just that, minor.
