New 45th Union Vehicle: The KA-7 "Horsefly" VTOL

Image
Spoiler
Show
A new utility and transport VTOL is entering service to replace the aging Hellion. Slight modifications to the passenger cab make the Horsefly capable of exoatmospheric flight.
Image

The original plan was to have a chin-mounted chaihttp://brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=13937ngun, but there wasn't enough clearance.

Image

Image

Image

Uncomfortably seats six, and seven is a definite possibility.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Thrusters can rotate for both hover and flight modes.

This is a lovely new take on the Falcon from Halo: Reach. Much love (especially on the cockpit, very nice). Close second would be the jet things thrusters

The cockpit works nicely and the whole thing nails the functional brutality vibe. Criticism would perhaps be to sneak in a little patch of colour somewhere (?) and perhaps the skids are a bit little, other than that this stuff makes me want to sneak away and do some lego again...

Envoy ITV

Image
Spoiler
Show
This speedy vehicle is compact enough to be airdropped onto a battlefield.
Image

The little floodlight above the passenger windscreen is my favorite part.

Image

The rollcage was really difficult, and I'm still not 100% on it.

Image

Image

Fits three.

Courier MRAP

Image
Spoiler
Show
The last word in rapid troop deployments only lacks air conditioning.
Image

The only change was that I added chains to the front.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Fits 4-5.

Guardian LAV

Image
Spoiler
Show
This amphibious assault vehicle is fully combat capable on landand sea, and can, oddly enough, survive on it's limited air supply in space.
Image

The Spare tire and periscope are the only additions.

Image

And the cages on the side.

Image

Image

I guess I also added a doorknob to the rear.

Image

And a hatch for the driver.

Image

Image

Image

So much interior.

Image

Fits 8-9.

Statesman IFV

Image
Spoiler
Show
The little brother of the Diplomat trades armor and firepower for transport capacity.
Image

I'm really happy with how this one turned out.

Image

It now has skirts.

Image

Rear door is far more armored.

Image

Turret is completely redone.

Image

It still has an unusable hatch though.

Image

Firing port opens.

Image

Image

Image

Seats 8.

Diplomat Main Battle Tank.

So I went home for the holiday and managed to snag some more pics of the new Diplomat.

Image
Spoiler
Show
The staple of the United Systems Military, the Diplomat possesses intimidating firepower at the cost of some maneuverability.
This picture was messed up because I had no idea how to resize images on my new computer.

Image

The hull now has a nicer shape and I added some wirecutter things. I replace the curvy bit of the tread covers with more angular parts...which are misaligned...

Image

I said I wouldn't modify the old turret, and then I realized how bad it looked...

Image

Rear is about the same.

Image

I changed up how the coaxial MG was mounted.

Image

The main sensor is in a new spot as well.

Image

Image

Antennae have been changed.

Image

There is now a hatch on the hull.

Image

The gunner's cupola had been shrunken due to the fact that the driver has to recline more now.

Image

Image

Interior is not yet finished, but is mostly the same.

Old Diplomat
Spoiler
Show
Image

Image

Since the only changes to the Diplomat was the addition of some sand green bits, there isn't anything too exciting to write about.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The front of the turret has not changes since 2010.

Image

And it won't. I like it too much.

Image

Image

i guess the gunner's hat has changed too...

I was scrolling down that just like "How much kit do you friggin' need!"... plenty of quantity and the quality doesn't seem to suffer at all. Perhaps keep tinkering with some of the smaller aircraft, and the RPG cages on the side of the guardian LAV are a little small (dunno what to suggest). Other than that it's all classy, and I like how the honour guard wears the soviet soldier uniforms.

Favourite is probably the statesman, details get even more impressive when you cram them in tight, and that thing is adorabley squareish.

The USA vehicles are amazing as always. The firing port on the door of the Statesman is a really cool touch.

Those artillery pieces are really sharp!
Are they going to be used like the 75MM PaK Howitzers, or something bigger: like the M102 105MM Towed Howitzer?

Yup, these are pretty great! Apart from the piddly feet on the mech, I'm really not feeling those. Thiscould be a better substitute imho, flows better with the general shaping without being too bulky/huge.
