Prototype testing of the MW-77 Assassin in Area 62, Montana.
It's hydrolics are too exposed. If you take them out then your tank is a really big turret. What would you use for a power plant? The only thing I can think that would be viable is some kind of nuclier engine, otherwise you'll be refueling it more often than you do an Abrams. The vulcan cannon (unless I'm mistaken and you decided to use a 30mm rotary) is good for a secondary but fixing it forward like that limits its usefulness at close range. It needs to beon a turret either with a limited forward arc or coaxial the main gun. The AA is five for low-flying jets and choppers but it seems like a SAM or two is in order for the higher-flying fighters. You know, the ones that drop 1,000 pound bombs on tanks just like this.
An Avenger-type system for AA would be lighter while keeping the same range. Now days the only good an AA gun would be for is taking out unsuspecting targets and that tank an't sneaking up on anybody with its terrain mapping lasers blazing. If you really want a gun I'ed say put a 20mm Vulcan next to some Stingers. Save ammo while keeping the ROF up. If it's good enough for the Navy then it's good enough for dirt munchers, and it can shoot down incoming missiles in a pinch.
The main gun looks like field artillery. Makes me thing the designers ran out of actual tank cannons so they decided to use whatever was laying around. I like it.
The gatling on the chassis needs to be on a turret. If it is a 30mm then more power to ya. Nothing really for me to say about that other than to point out that you'll be retty tight on ammo for it. Gatling guns have a stupid rate of fire, as I'm sure you know, and all the ammo you can fit into that chassis will ammount to a wet fart's worth of projected hate. I say switch to a 30mm chain gun similar to the Apache and use it for siping and for point defense against infantry.
Just my thoughts.
wow uv goten a lot of complants about the legs but i think it gives the pic a prototype feel.
one word for this picture and it is WOW
I think you have used lighting and shadowing exelently in this fine piece of artwork I congratulate you!
Very, very nice piece of work. I'd cover up those hydraulic pistons in a real one, though. Yeah, artistic license, I know. Like the AA guns - nice touch!
dude !,awsome is the only way to describe your creation here! I to love mech fighting machines,and have got to say this is by far one of coolest iv'e seen because of the realism you've put into it.Also have to disagree about easily taking it down with a simple shot to one of the legs;it apears even in concept to be well contructed as well the fact that if you take out one leg you've still got 5 more.Anyway this is one great picture!
Thats pretty amazing matey! Fancy putting it to use in an actual game? www.hull-breach.com - we'd love to discuss the possiblity of including this as an actual vehicle!
this is an awsome pic
Correction, take you down.
Excellent pic. I could take you up by shooting one of your legs too.
i think that its a good idea but some one could easly take out one of those legs and knock it out
Fantastic work indeed,that spider tank successfully looks natural to the image,I too love mech design
WOW! How'd you do this one? I love mech-type machines.
