B.A.N.T.H.A

Post by Sialboats on Sun Aug 09, 2009 1:53 am



The Battlefield Armory and Transport Hauler Automaton is a four-wheeled, all-terrain, all-environment droid. Engineered as a way to replenish Equinox commandos in-theater, and carry supplies from one end of the battlefield to another, the B.A.N.T.H.A is outfitted with multiple hardpoints on it's exterior, and a storage compartment within it's armored hull. The hull is impervious to small arms fire, and most anti-armor rounds and shaped charges, allowing the Post-Drop ODC's to use it as mobile cover. Capable of speeds of over 150 MPHs, the B.A.N.T.H.A can also function as a troop transport; perfect for lightning raids. Four high-explosive rocket-propelled grenades provide the unit with basic defensive abilities, however it is not designed as a combat vehicle. Controllable by remote up-link, or on-the-site orders given through the eyepiece HUDs of ODCs.






I fiddled around with the idea with some tablescraps, then took the basic chassis to the lab and started beefing it up, fleshing it out. After cannibalizing my old BH Guildbuild submission, and running into several infuriating piece shortages, I think I've hammered out an admirable design Wink. Inspired by the real-world FCS MULE.

It looks nicely greebled: the only thing that minorly stands out are the wheel brackets that connect the wheels to the body.

Reminds me of the Warthog from Halo...

Looks good Sial! It has that military look, and it blends in with the rest of the Equinox. Smile

This is quite a marvellous vehicle. I love the cage, and the wheels. You should really make an Equinox page, so we can keep track of all of these awesome vehicles.

I'm actually surprised this has received such high praises!

@ Gerrard: Really? I thought I used most of the pieces in a rather orthodox fashion Razz.
@ Jedi Joe: I think the wheels give it that look... I'm not sure.
@ Aki: One day, I will. I'm just... here it is again... too lazy Wink .
@ CK: Yes, it will - eventually.

I agree with Joe, it does look like a Warthog. The techniques utalized are quite impressive as well. Smile Blue Arc
