V4 Zephyr Class Heavy Tank

Postby dilanski » Sun Feb 13, 2011 7:11 am

This is the new V4 Zephyr Tank. Your probably wondering what happened to the V3, to be honest I fucked it up (only had a 3 brick high cabin) so I moved on to the V4. When I designed this tank I had several criteria I wanted to meet.

>Increased size
>Less common weapon
>Air defense
>Looks less "Sterile" (Thanks for the comment Warhead)
>Decent ground clearance

This is the anti-air turret for shooting down aircraft or other high targets.

Side view (Just managed to get the rail-gun in there!)

Top view.

Turret connection, showing the ladder.

Inside, I have improved the interior, with more room to play with I managed to fit in another console.

You can just see the the hot bunk and mini-fridge, filled with Cider.

:D


The main rail-gun Is based off the Marksman tank on Brick Commander. Most of the turret is recycled from the V2 Zephyr.

C&C?

Dude, the new turret is simply, awesome! The AA turret add is wonderful and so is the railgun, to top anti armor weapon IMO. The new body is OK, I must admit I liked the old one better. How about you cover those sides with some armor skirts?

What do you not like about the body, the front? I thought it would be too hard to cover the sides because the skirt would be a brick wide, it would look to thick, if i ever double up the tracks I would.

Hell yes! Love the railgun, and love the size in general. I'd agree that some sort of skirt would be a good idea (maybe attach one to that beam you've got crossing the wheels instead of hanging it?) but overall, this thing looks sick. Keep it up!

I enjoyed the old one more, but this is still pretty cool.

You could use SNOT to maybe get thinner skirts; the only reason that I'd advocate it is that those treads look mighty vulnerable, especially from the rear. Of course, a "defend the downed tank" mission sounds pretty cool on its own...

A turret on turret layout - this I like to see! :lol: I love that layout.

However, the man chassis looks "off", I can't put my finger on it - it either needs to have flatter, or wider lines.

All tanks should have a mini fridge.

I was hoping to fit a full bar and gentlemen club in there but there wasn't enough room...

Great tank, you turret looks awesome, but the chassis looks too tall for it, try that 1 brick side skirt for her, it should widen her a bit to counter her height, and cover the tracks.
