Calvarian and Kuragin drones (and yet another tank update!)

Postby Ben-Jammin » Thu Aug 02, 2012 1:55 pm

With hostilities escalating between the Calvarian and Kuragin forces, the two are once again looking for ways to get a step ahead of the other. Recently, scientists on both sides of the conflict have begun updating the older Typhoon and Crusader tank designs to meet new battlefield conditions. In addition, both sides have also begun to develop a new type of unit to fight on the front lines: combat drones.

Image

The Mk. IIC Typhoon tank is the newest adaptation of the classic Typhoon-class main battle tank. Retaining the 120mm HVG and heavy machine guns of its predecessors, the Mk. IIC features an enhanced comm system and larger Mk. II missile pods, giving impressive firepower.

Image

Another new feature is the addition of a rear access hatch, which can be used to quickly evacuate the crew in the event that the top hatch is blocked.

Image

The M75b Crusader is the newest model of the Kuragin Crusader tank. After seeing the superior firepower of the older Typhoon variants, the Kuragin engineers re-modeled the turret to feature thicker armor and a pair of Mk. II missile pods, enabling the M75b variant to go toe-to-toe with their Calvarian counterparts.

Image

The ASD-39 Hummingbird is a scout drone developed by Kuragin engineers. It has advanced communication and targeting gear, and can fly about silently on a battlefield with its twin rotors. A pair of machine pistols mounted to the craft enable it to function as a close-range anti-infantry unit as well.

Image

The ORD-6 (codenamed Mosquito) is a Calvarian scout drone that acts as a counterpart to the Kuragin ASD-39. It features its own pair of rotors, as well as two suppressed 5.56mm guns that can kill infantry quickly.

Image

The AID-9 assault drone is a massive treaded ground drone used by the Kuragin republic to support infantry units. Affectionately known as the Crab by its organic masters, the crab features thick comosite armor and is armed with a pair of rapid-fire miniguns that can decimate enemy infantry and light vehicles in seconds. Its rear weapon mounts also allow for the integration of flamethrowers, grenade launchers, anti-material rifles, and missile weapons. Although slow-moving for a combat drone, its twin treads enable the Crab to traverse difficult terrain and rubble with ease.

Image

The XDV-44 is a deadly Calvarian assault drone, known to most as the Nightcrawler. Equipped with high-tech sensors and targeting gear, as well as stealth armor plating, the Nightcrawler can quickly and silently descend on enemy infantry groups and rip them to shreds with its high-caliber minigun. Three hydraulic legs with magnetic feet enable the Nightcrawler to scale nearly vertical surfaces, while its thick leg plates are resistant to gunfire. Some variants of the Nightcrawler are also equipped with retractable wheels that, when deployed, enable the drone to quickly chase down enemy forces at speeds of up to 55 mph. (This variant inspired by Iron Sniper's model on Flickr)

Yeah, so I tried my hand at making some drones, and I think they turned out rather well. Tell me what you guys think.

Nice! I like all the drones, and may have to steal the Scout bot design.

Thanks everyone! I would be willing to provide instructions if necessary, but I plan on tweaking the Calvarian drone designs a little more, namely adding more detail to the mosquito and putting wheels on the Nightcrawler.
