Type 23 Special Weapons Carrier by MikeDoscher Type 23 Special Weapons Carrier by MikeDoscher
This is a 3D treatment of a vehicle I did in a painting awhile back: [link]

I completed the concept illustration, though by no means am I done with the model yet. There's some tweaking to do on the other side and the back, and it still needs to be rigged to show off the weird suspension.

EDIT: Download it to get the full effect. The texture compression murders this one.

This is quite creative and interesting. It has a menacing look too.

I'm intrigued with that suspension design. It could be used to negotiate abrupt terrain transitions if you took off those front bumpers and perhaps that front panel on the nose.
Military vehicles need to be able to go up steep hills. But you don't want to plow your nose into the bottom of the hillside!
Your adjustable adjustable suspension could be for that. just an idea..

I started figuring out how the suspension would work a while back, but I never fully rigged it. Here's a test animation of it changing modes: titancity.tumblr.com/post/4585…

This beast needs an endearing bumper sticker that reads "I brake for fuzzy bunnies" :)

Nice going, man. Is this a tank destroyer?

Thanks- It's not so much a tank destroyer as mechanized artillery based on an APC chassis. The closest analog would be one of those M113s turned into a support unit, or possibly the Sd.Kfz. 4/1.
