Original VT by ModalMechanica Original VT by ModalMechanica
Concept for an original VT. Vertical Tanks are from steel battalion of course. I've had the sketch of this sitting around since my last steel battalion piece, finally mustered up the strength to paint it up. This was a rather fast one too, probably only took 2 hours or so. Anyway, dont feel like writing anything about it, gots school /:

It's called a 'Vertical Tank' for a reason, and the setting destroys the possibility of this kind of tech being used. True it's set in 2083, but that computer virus practically sent mankind back to the stone age. To function at full capacity a VT (called a Veet in the game by the infantrymen and VT crews) requires at minimum a 3-man crew, though each is usually outfitted with 4-man crews: A pilot, a co-pilot/comms officer, an engines operator/left loader, and a right loader. All shoved into a tiny as hell cockpit that shouldn't even fit 2, much less 4.

That's pretty badass. I love the "wings" on its shoulders, and I especially like how it's a lot more of a gritty, hard sci-fi design than say, Gundam. That's what I've always loved about the Metal Gear series as well.

And what a striking color! Though I doubt it'd be all that well-camouflaged, unless it was walking around in front of a brick wall.

Haha the wings are supposed to be armour plates or something, and yeah I prefer the gritty look to xD

And yeah it wants to stand out on the battlefield.

Yeah that's why I usually much prefer Western sci-fi to Japanese sci-fi, though there are exceptions.

:iconmodalmechanica:
ModalMechanica Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2011
Yeah, it just depends, I think Japanese still tends to have the most believable mecha sometimes.

Yeah, on occasion. I'm really not that big into mecha to be honest. I'm more into guns, aircraft, fighting vehicles, spaceships, etc.

My favorite series are Star Wars and Halo.
