    Competition: Tank Design 2239

    Since we've got an arms race, my tank has been showly shifting more and more towards Not An M41. Going to improve the suspension. Gave it a meaner gun and a better shaped turret, but made sure to keep all the comfort. Turret's gotten pretty fat, may be able to trim some off the back half still. On second thought, it's entirely possible that I've also just got the turret itself at too large of a scale

    Competition: Tank Design 2239

    I don't think that I'll be able to deliver a proper entry this time around, but I'll probably try to at least refine my mockup so that I've got something pretty to post that's in the spirit of this competition. I've also got to wonder if I'm partly to blame for the sudden trend of rear turreted light tanks with starship-esque turrets (with mine itself just being a copy of the Teledyne expeditionary tank). 🤔🤔

    Still messing around in solidworks, mass is a little over 8t if I've got it all scaled right. I jerry-rigged the side hull on and did some other stuff in ways that probably weren't quite right. Also realized that despite thinking of stuff like the M47, T23, T-55 and stuff in mind when making the turret, it sure does look a lot like the Chaffee's now that I've refined the shape and flattened it some.

    Feel free to use the red, it's just a placeholder color since I'm too lazy to figure out how they changed lighting in 3ds max 2018 and me just defaulting back to that clay mode is easier.

    Messed with proportions a little, added more dakka, stretched things out a little too. Not entirely happy with the driver's position, may change the suspension as well. Added the second coaxial MG just for giggles. Gun right now has -12°/+20° elevation with that model

    Still working in 3ds max for now since I feel it's better for just roughing out ideas, but pooped out something just as a sort of warmup. Dunno if I'll keep it or not, but it'd be a light tank of some sort.

    I've got enough experience with direct modeling stuff like 3ds max, but it's the parametric stuff that I've not got much experience in. @Sturgeon For the turret, was that mostly done through lofting? Shapes like that were a complete pain to make in 3ds max, though I'd imagine they're not as bad in solidworks. For the hulls, did you just make that side profile cutaway first (like what you used to show off armor thicknesses) and then build off that? Solidworks is a little more picky with how you go about making things than 3ds max is. I do have a couple courses I'll be taking this fall over solidworks, though I'm going to guess that they're not going to be as in-depth as I'd like.

    Figures, the week I finally get my hands on solidworks is the week this happens. I'll probably mess around with ideas in 3ds max again before trying to build something more shiny in solidworks. I also sadly lost the majority of my tank .pdf files in a tragic accident

    North Korea, you so crazy!

    Someone sent me it without context, so I'd have to do some digging to find the source.

    I'm going to assume they're flares for what seems to be an underbarrel flare gun.

    They must have updated its BR and I missed it, was 2.7 when I tried playing it.
