TZ-112 MBS

Post by Sialboats on Tue Oct 21, 2008 10:43 am

Going to re-post this here, because the contest thread isn't getting a lot of traffic Razz ! Opinions welcome!



The TZ-112 Main Battle Speeder was one of the experimental concepts that actually worked. When Colonel Turaki Kaeir of the 541st Legion saw a demonstration of the speeder bike during war games prior to Geonosis, he "... had to have that. I don't care how many toes I step on...I'm getting that...procured."

The MBS was pretty much just that. A heavily armed and armored combat bike. The pilot has control over the movement of the vehicle, with top speeds of 130 KPH, as well as two link-fired .50 caliber laser cannons. The gunner has at his disposal a larger and far more potent cannon, firing solid explosive slugs over energy-based projectiles. Furthermore, the vehicle has a concealed bay of laser cannons beneath the mainframe. When the bike is at high altitudes, the gunner can access the integrated targeting system and fire down upon enemy troops.

While still maintaining relatively high speeds, it is impervious to small arms fire. It can also take several larger bolts, ranging from light arty to tank rounds.

The 541st uses these extensively. They're mostly sent en-masse up against Separatist armored columns, a strafing run, in a attempt to confuse and damage the tanks before the TX-130/c MBTs are about to engage them. The pilot will come in close, go for the main body of the enemy tank, it's gun, or the treads on a CG armored vehicle. The rear gunner will then lay in a few rounds on the selected portion, intensifying the damage. They are also known to provide light armored support to infantry squads, packing nearly as much firepower as a APC.

It looks really nice, great job! It looks like the pilot is leaning back too far, but oh well it still looks sweet. Smile Blue Arc

Yes, leaned back is definitely better than stock upright.

You don't want debris to hit you in the face, right? Wink

Looks neat! Very long, a fascinating design, two-seater, with front and aft weaponry!

I agree with everyone else... it is a tad too long...

The shape is really good for a vehicle... just not a speeder bike...

I am not "discriminating" against them... I just think it doesn't look "speederbikeish."
