Whirlwind I by Quesocito Whirlwind I by Quesocito
Quad 23mm "Crowd Suppression System" mounted on a Cavalier chassis.

Based on the German Whirlwind AA tank from World War 2. So yeah this a retro design and not based on practicality. Reckon it looks good though! :)

And then a grenade ruined everything.


Still, very nice design. Very well detail, and a good mix of WWII and modern.

This is very nice. Favorited!

This is actually a very logical AFV design for a variety of technical reasons that I won't bore anyone with (as I have a tendency to talk too much.)

Looks good. "Crowd" can also mean a whole bunch of enemy soldiers!

Crowd suppression? What ind of crowd do you plan on taking on that you need a quad 23mm!
With this firepower, there is not much crowd left after you let loose.

Hahaha ah yeah!! So what?! Who likes crowds anyway!? ;) nah the whole idea wasnt very serious anyway, like an open topped turret, and androids ;)

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.. :/
