Sea Skimmer by MikeDoscher Sea Skimmer by MikeDoscher
Concept for a dual mode submersible and ground effect vehicle. Messing around with more organic forms this time.

Great organic looking tank! Doesn't look like the main turret and its co-axial gun can traverse much though.

Reminds me a bit of the MTTs from the [i]Star Wars[/i] prequels.

I like the dramatic sense of motion you're conveying here without sacrificing any of the form or detail on the craft.
("blasting across the alkali flats in a monkey-navigated death rocket" immediately sprang to mind...in a good way ;))

I really like the idea of it being piloted by a monkey. Seriously.

You just want to strap on a rubber suit and shoot things with a SMG- tell the truth.

The backstory is something I'll need to revisit. The thing is, much of the situation on Earth hasn't been laid out yet so I'm not entirely sure where this fits in.

Just throwing out ideas here but...old model low cost patrol skimmer (not great in eather capacity, but better than nothing), used mostly by private security & some 3rd world militaries? I just thought this up in 2 minutes, Im better with ideas than I am art.

My initial idea was of it being old hardware that was being used as a drug mule, but it would probably be configured differently. The guns would almost certainly be removed for additional speed, range, or cargo capacity.

I found that I had more questions than answers as far as role and layout, so I let it go for now.
