Re: EA Ground Forces WIPs
That tank looks awesome!
However,I think that middle-front turret might in a bad place.

That huge main gun is going to look very very wonky if it's a multipart and can rotate fully to the sides or behind. As a singlepart or maybe only being able to rotate/elevate 5 degrees or so, it should be fine, though.

Juuust thought of that. Will ditch that turret.

It's supposed to rotate and elevate fully, the better to gatling you with. Any ideas for a more rotation-friendly design?

Might work better if it was not as long, then that middle-front turret might not have to go either.

Maybe you could use an oscillating turret design: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscillating_turret

Re: EA Ground Forces WIPs
Will the upcoming story piece be from the EA or GTVA perspective?

GTVA first, though we'll be covering the story of the EA and the Vasudans too.

I like the new "flying fortress" design, looks like a more serious threat. That oscillating turret thing looks awesome too and I think it could really work for the central gun.

But I want to play as the EA and throw my weight around, behave questionably towards civilian space convoys in Beta Aquilea, etc.

Well, you'll have to make a fan-campaign once INF comes out. :)

Updated the turret. What do you think?

Looking good, although now the central turret reminds me of a sturmtiger

Re: EA Ground Forces WIPs
You should probably make the turret ring/turret base cylinder thingy a bit thicker since it doesn't quite look like it could support such a massive weapon on it at the moment, with it being off to one side and being "unbalanced". A counterweight would work, but making the base cylinder bigger would go a long way to making it look more stable.

Re: EA Ground Forces WIPs
Backside exhausts could also be considered, so that the weapon would be recoilless.

Updated the cannon, started fleshing out the details.

UV-ready Y/N? Will add some more plating detail, etc. in the normalmap.

I'd say it's good to go!
If you're in the mood for some greebling you might want to put some detail in the engine area, otherwise I'd say it's mighty fine!

Re: EA Ground Forces WIPs
That main turret gun is going to look wonky if it's able to elevate fully and shoot straight up, because the way it's set up now I think the back portion of it might clip into the hull a bunch.
