[Vee] Amphibious Assault Tank

Postby GRUD » Sat Jan 18, 2014 4:18 pm

Yep, I got bored again. Waiting for FB pages to open, I opened HMVee and started tinkering. Didn't have anything in mind at first, then thought about an amphibious tank and came up with this. Model 1 makes a "Beachhead", then Model 2 helps shore it up with Infantry Support! :twisted: My Original name was "Alligator Snapping Turtle", but I changed it to Amphibious Assault Tank instead, since that's really what it is. The Reinforced Internal Structure makes it tough to kill, and the UAC/20-UAC/10 combo gives it one Hell of a "Bite"! This is one of the few times I didn't bother making a Clan version. Yes, it's expensive as HELL, but I never think of that when I'm making a design anyway. The same goes for BV. :P Limits are for those that can't think outside the box! :mrgreen:

While it would Ideally unload the Infantry after making the beachhead secure, the SRM 2s are to cover the PBIs as they exit the vehicle. With a 10 ton Infantry bay, you can get either a LOT of PBIs in there, or some BA, depending on what you had available. :twisted:

To me, Repros are 100% Wrong, and there's NO room for me to give ground on this subject. I'm not just an Immovable Object on this, I'm THE Immovable Object.
