Contact - Main Battle Tank by Shimmering-Sword Contact - Main Battle Tank by Shimmering-Sword
Another vehicle design for the Contact book, this time a main battle tank.
Started out with a handful of concept sketches, then created a mockup in 3D which really helps with perspective and general lighting. Good old painting for the rest and better part of the time from there. I'm liking this new vehicle process :)

For :iconbiometal79: ~biometal79

Contact designs are not for personal or commercial use, no derivative works please.

That is some very well sloped armor.

Nice design but too many varieties of weapons and mixed calibers. Grenade launchers, rockets, machineguns, autocannons. You forgot a flamethower by the way.

Main gun is tank standard, smoke launchers standard, multiple caliber machine guns standard, and even some modern armor is known for attached missile tubes. So, not too much variety.

1 Mixed caliber machineguns overlap in areas. a .30 caliber is fine for anti-infantry, a .50caliber has higher penetration and power, while a 20mm autocannon is great for light vehicles and anti-aircraft.

2 grenade launchers similarly overlap with rocket and missile launchers, as all have smoke ammunition but the grenade launchers are purely defensive.

3 you could have a pair of high velocity grenade launchers for anti-infantry, anti-armor, anti-air, and utility because the variety of shells. the only thing they would miss is guided warheads of missile launchers.

I'm just talking about real life here, this is normal for a tank to carry, let alone scifi where you can do whatever you want.

Have you ever thought you could design something better?
