What if...Urban Assault

Not quite sure where this should go, but as it’s a WIP I thought here would be appropriate…
Ever wondered why NATO never developed a Terminator type vehicle,… Well I have… Introducing my HURAV… Heavy Urban Reconniasance and Assault Vehicle.

Main sub-assemblies blu-taced together to get a feel for it all.
Shooty sticks in the form of 30mm Bushmaster x2 on order and a launcher of some description for thetmobaric munitions on the turret side.

Toying with the idea of slat-modified from HobbyBoss LEO2A6M CAN… Anyhow, thoughts, suggestions, comments very graciously welcomed

Very interesting idea- I think it is looking well at the minute. I like the angular turret. I think slat- modified would be a good luck. Perhaps a protection system like Trophy would be an idea?

Ezra, Karl, thank you both very much!
I like the idea of a trophy type thingy. Another little project to build then…

This all depends on how much “Sci-Fi” you want to put into it… If you want realism, then all your parts will have to be realistic tank parts. If you want to “Sci-Fi” it, then you can use whatever spare parts and knickknacks that you can find to create whatever weapons and sensor systems your imagination desires. :smile:

Thanks both. Like I said earlier, I try to go for more credible type of what if’s…
Need to decide on a paint scheme. Thinking of a modified version of the Berlin scheme. Any thoughts graciously welcomed.

I have to agree with what others have said- something like the Berlin camo would look great.

Thank you all for your input.
Thinking of a variation on it- replace the brown with black maybe and poss 2 shades of grey instead of one… Need to try it out on a bit of card first to see what it might look like.

That model is looking fantastic, a neat idea for sure!

Berlin camo would be quite fitting specially with this chassis. I am however a personal fan of the Nordic geometric camouflage patterns, could look pretty cool as well.
