Its ok. Im still working on the novel. The seen I had wanted to do was a light skirmish between marines at a supply station and a large group of enemy infantry. I like this tank because Im a hardcore WW2 fan, especially of German equipment. I was thinking of adding side skirts over the tracks, while also adding an HMG on the back of the turret so a supporting infantry man could mount and provide close anti infantry defense, lol, not that many would try to get close to those quad death dealers. But its like an ambush seen where this tank saves the battle and turns back the enemy, all before shooting down an few enemy hovercraft.
Hmmm... I see pros and cons to this design. On the plus side you could have men standing and firing on all sides and they could easily evac if someone lobbed in a grenade. Also the blast would mostly be contained to the inside. You also wouldn't want to be fully enclosed with those guns because it would be very loud and hot with smoke and spent casings everywhere. The down side is that if someone hucked a Molotov cocktail or a jar of ...bodily fluid...you'd really be left hating life. I suppose a metal screen, or even a raised solid canopy might work. I would call these rollers Pop-Tops
I tend to analyze the work i see, thinking "What was the idea of the artist, how would it work, what funtion should it serve to" and such. Some times, it leads to correct assumptions, sometimes to quite funny new ideas. I this case, i try to imagine what kind of crowd would be necessary to be fought with such a weapon/tank. Kinda fearsome.
yeah i see what u mean, most of the time i do the same, and actually most of the models i draw are like that. every detail i put on it has to have a purpose. in this case i was actually imagining either zombies or hordes of alien critters.. :/
