The images should be back now.

Thanks! It does have similarities but in fact my inspiration came from the Al Fahd:

As per your requests, more info about the construction of the chassis:

Image
The blue tecnic pin of the front wheel's axis connects under the engine block which itself snaps under the controls.


Image
The frame doesn't require that much parts, which is a good thing.
The holes could be filled but I like the amount of space inside and they're barely visible once the APC is fully assembled anyway.
( * Some briks are missing on the top one * )


Image
The arch pieces give a lot of room for the wheels to move up and down.


Image
Stress tests


Image
Image
The Peacekeeper includes a lot of features to increase playability: Tools, weapon racks, headlights, plenty of room and grips all around, four exits,...


Image
I wanted to build an APC using the wheels of the Lego Earth Defense HQ and honestly I'm very satisfied with the results.

:tiger:

Too many people have to sacrifice functionality for looks, but this is a good balance between the two.

Yeah the back is very simple but I find it so efficient.

This should clear things about the front part.

Like this.
Then the engine connects to the rest of the chassis.


Image
There you see the other end of the single blue tecnic pin used in the assembly.

Jesus H. Christ, that's an amazing vehicle.

Scratch that, those are two amazing vehicles.

I did not even know that the bottom of the modified 2x2 brick with pin connects with technic axles. This, this changes everything! :shock:

I am sure Natalya will agree when she see's this - pinning this topic for awesome build technique, layout, style and aesthetic.

. . . or I would if I somehow had not lost my ability to pin posts. Dah hell mang?
