Conglomerate APC

Postby Swordsalmon » Mon Oct 15, 2012 3:10 am

Though the TAV served admirably as a small-team carrier and in a gunfire support role, the Conglomerate of Salt Miners quickly realized that they needed a heavier troop carrier platform. After numerous hours of planning and construction, a new vehicle was created. Currently known only as the Conglomerate APC, this vehicle serves admirably in the areas it was meant to cover.

Here's the back of the APC, with the rear hatch open. Troops can depart quickly via this hatch.

Though the primary purpose of the APC is to ferry soldiers to and across the battlefield, this design features two weapon systems. Because the Conglomerate of Salt Miners lacks heavily-armored vehicles, the Conglomerate APC is fitted with a tank gun to engage armored adversaries. In addition, a 7.62mm machine gun is mounted to ward off enemy infantry.

Here is an inside view of the APC. Though this model has a divider between the operators' controls and the carrying area, newer models have eschewed it in favor of extra carrying space. With the divider, a squad of eight soldiers and two operators can be comfortably carried inside. Without the divider, more troops or supplied can be mounted.

There are currently four Conglomerate APCs in the arsenal, with enough parts to create a fifth. They can come in many different colors!

This officer can feel at ease knowing that his convoy of Conglomerate APCs will lead his platoon to victory!

It's awesome there are four of them!
The chassis design is lovely but really those red wheels do not look nice at all. With a bunch of regular wheels they'd be much better i think.

It would be cooler with bigger wheels.

Thanks. ^_^ I will be eventually replacing the red wheels, but those were the cheapest I could get at the time. Bigger wheels aren't out of the question either, though it'll require me to completely change the undercarriage. Though it would look nicer.

I think those wheels look fine but vulnerable. If I was defending a position I'd have marksmen or men with explosives blow out the wheels then mow down the infantry when they climbed out.

First, nice APC design.
Second, armored side skirts. Not only would they hide the wheels, which I think are awesome in red btw,but it also makes them near impossible to immobilize. (Assuming you use the 2010 rules.) :!:

Man, I like these, but I agree with Natty-light; the wheels are too small. They just don't feel right. I like the number and the spacing, but not the wheels them selves.

Otherwise, these seem pretty legit. Fairly simple, but functional, and there's a ton of room on the inside. I hate cramped APC's.

Yeah, it does look like you have room to mount a skirt... kind of makes me wonder why you didn't put one on in the first place...

I based the design of the APC heavily on the Stryker, so I didn't want to add side skirts. Also, I'll have to revamp the undercarriage to add them. Once I get time, I'm going to try making a variation with the side skirts, though.
