I wasn't criticizing mechas on their own (de)merits. Just asking how that was supposed to fit into a post-apoc setting that didn't have technology.

That could work. Sort of a BSG vibe. Missions to scavenge parts from ruined bases and such. Defeat the enemy before you use up the remaining hardware, so the campaign has built-in time pressure. Also could be a good excuse for the "why melee weapons instead of ranged" question, so you have to go toe-to-toe with the daikaiju. Missiles are scarce, but you can keep swinging that Voltron sword (nearly) as much as you like.
