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! :)

Hey man. Im writing a sci fi novel and this would look great in a scene i have imagined. If youre interested I have a few ideas to change this and make it into my novel.

Doesn't look that far away from ZSU-24-4 "Shilka". Nice design!

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'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 :)

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 ;)
