Paladin Corps vehicles (warning: extremely pic heavy)

As per request, the Paladin Corps has agreed to relinquish basic information about their vehicles, as a gesture of peace.

First off is the Micantis battle tank, the main tank of the Paladin Corps.
Image

Image

Image

Image

As most of Cain-un's threats are personnel-based, the tank has adopted a large minigun as opposed to the traditional cannon. it does, however, sport 10 mk2 missiles on it's turret. it has room for twelve troops, plus the pilot.

Image

Image

with the turret removed

Image

next, we have the Nitidus class mech, still a fairly early prototype

Image

Image

Image

Image

This behemoth has a huge amount of firepower, with one mk1 chaingun, a plasma blaster, an auto-cannon, and dual chain-linked miniguns. this is the powerhouse of the Corps. it can hold a pilot, and these pilots must be extremely smart and intuitive. only the best become mech pilots.

Image

Image

Wrapping up our land based vehicles, the Laevitas speeder. the engineers built this thing from the chassis of the Micantis, and so it has roughly the same outline.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

used primarily as a fast attack vehicle to transport either the marines or the heavy support squad, the Laevitas has only a mk3 heavy chaingun, as it assumes that it will be transporting much more.

Now the air force.
the Adorior VTOL is used as an attack vehicle, for hit-and-run tactics. it has an emp pulse cannon, ten mk2 missiles, a grenade launcher, and a minigun. In a pinch, the Adorior can also carrly two troops inside, but this space is usually reserved for cargo.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Next is the Roro assault pod. while it's small engines can only support it for a short time, the Roro is extremely fast and agile. for weaponry, it has 2 mk2 missiles, and 2 miniguns.

Image

Image

Image

Now, the men(and women) behind the machines. these are the *new* pilots. the ones with the breathing apparatus are the air force pilots

Image

Also, to close, I whipped up a new chainsword design for Aeryn. lemme know what you think

Image

The whole mechanized force

:protip: If it looks like a tank, but it carries troops and it has an a smaller gun than a tank, it's an Infantry Fighting Vehicle. Regardless of what it is though, it is very kickass, like your other vehicles.

I'm not surprised you assed RoC as an influence, I thought your vehicles looked awfully similar.  My faves are the tank and the mecha.

actually, the tank was finished before I saw roc's work, but small redesigns were, of course, added. I think the most influenced was the mech, because I had tried several times before with limited success, so I gave up until I saw the maiden. @ Pwnerade, the whole point was tha it was a tank outfitted with a turret to take down infantry... it still has the chassis of a regular tank, and i'm sure i could make a cannon for it if/when I need to

I still think it'd be an IFV since it carries infantry.

These look really good, I think it's fine to be able to carry troops in a tank, my original light tanks also carried troops. But I'm not the resident tank expert(who is that now btw?). I especially like the detaling on the mech, the guns looks really good, and the head top's it! It's always an honor that people get inspired with what I build, heck I get inspierd by you guys too! Keep up the good work!

The tank APC is awesome, and the attack pod looks pretty tough. I like everything. ^_^
