55th's Mobile Command Post

Post by Comrade Faie on Mon Feb 16, 2009 8:26 pm

Used by the Grand Army of the Republic it saw action on many pivotal battles of the Clone Wars, armed with two mortar launchers that could fire two mortars in one cannon at a time and four AA and AI heavy laser cannons it could take down many droids. Nicknamed "Bill" because of the bill-like structure on its cockpit, for example "We could use a bill in here, the Clanka's got artillery that needs taking out!" It could fit one pilot and anywhere up to 8 clones. It was thought to be a bit underused because of its speed which is to say it wasn't that fast. It was a bridge between the TX-130 tank used by the Republic and the TX-130T and 2-M Repulsor tank used by the Empire. It saw some action in the months leading up to the Galactic Civil War and was a favorite of Rahm Kota's small army of rebels.

Sorry for picture quality, I had my lamp on but I don't know what happened.

As a tank this isn't much... But if this was a command center this could be very amazing. Shocked

That's a brillaint idea! Give the top a holo table and other stuff like that, and make a command variant!

Well the back is just flat with the exception of two engines... It looks like you cut something in half... Wink

I don't know what I could do with the back... I mean it is detailed if you take a look.

The cockpit is in an awkward place.

The tank itself is kinda blocky, but the slopes look good!

I really don't like the cockpit either... but I wouldn't know where to put it or how to replace it otherwise.

Not bad, but I wouldn't name it an Heavy 'Infantry Support Platform', because some people might mistake it for a heavily armed ISP.

But yeah, it has slopes, I like it a bit, but it needs some smoothening out in some areas. Wink

Whoops, I didn't mean smoothening out, I was just referring it looked like a battle platform. Wink

Wow, in battle that must be really efective - the clone have mobile cover.

As a tank, as others have pointed out, it fails miserably. But god, this thing would make one helluva mobile command post Razz !

Heh.

It just has a bit too much Dark Gray IMO, give it some more lighter colors. Wink

Otherwise, you're off to a very good start.

Cool! I love the guns. I see a slight resemblance to the TX-130. Maybe put something else in the interior. great!

I think I have a little space for a little holotable or something else.

That looks really cool, but how about you make it longer, and have a hatch on the back that lets out more troops, and the snipers stay in that main section.
