X-Tank by gryphyn7 X-Tank by gryphyn7
The X-Tank has been finished for awhile now, but I just got around to uploading this image. The model is fully rigged with FK/IK sets, fully articulating arms with realistic, single axis, hinge joints, and automated ground detection.

This tank is not yet finished. She's apart of a project coming up and will continue to go through some improvements and alterations.

Modeled and Rigged in 3DS Max.

The whole idea is awesome. Equipped with a recoilless gun it would rule the battlefield. +fav

oOOooh... I can't wait! Looks exciting! That foreground wheel doesn't seem like it's touching the ground that much... is this when it's in the middle of climbing?

In a real life mock up of this..I could see it being practical the design leaves a lot to the imagination though...for instance does the wheels expand for bracing itself when firing..cause the recoil on that large of a gun to me just seems like it would flip the whole rig. The design of it though makes it look incredibly mobile and fast too which could be used as an advantage. I like it. Would be curious to see a design like this in action.

Thanks, man. Yeah, I plan to keep tweaking it. I'm also going to improve on it and make some variations (Anti-aircraft gun/rockets mount instead of tank turret, 6-leg troop carrier version, water submersion version, etc).

More to come.
