Well, if you are going to assume a transforming (moving limb) craft then,
ya, they are necessary. Try cutting off the legs of a seal and see how
well he swims. Mobile suits have thrusters on their legs, right? I would
suppose being able to move the legs would give extra directional vectors
that simple engine cones that swivel through 5 degrees or so of arc could
not. Limbs period aren't necessary in space or water but your question
implies that you think arms and heads are necessary. I suppose the real
question is would those mechs ever need to function on land, too?

 77th (watts precinct) look like they've perfected teleportation."
