TRO:3063 - Capellan San-Ku-Chu

Post by Centurion13 »

Image


The one on top is the FWL Zhukov II. Bottom is the San-Ku-Chu.

Troop transport with firing ports. Pretty fast at 6/9/0. Well-armored with 6.5 tons of armor (on a 35-ton chassis) and features four tons of troop space. Sports a turret-mounted large laser for troop fire support.

I think Karl is doing a very good job.

Nicely done. I like the "perspectivized" views. :thumleft:

Yeah, the Zhukov II one has propaganda/recruitment poster written all over it.

All the little laser pods reminds my of when they were discussing the developement of the Bradley and they wanted gun ports on the sides.

Those are little guns ports, I'm just holding off putting the guns in them until I ink it ;)

Well... I did change it. :P Check out this video and see why. The suspension is pretty much the same, because the San Ku Chu tops out at 54 mph - and the tracked suspension has to show it.

We like to use real-world examples - this one has three sets of bogies, so that's what I want for the San Ku Chu.


Quick tracked... thingie!
