Some Towed Artillery Pieces

on Thu Sep 18, 2014 7:16 pm
CM-9 90mm mobile field gun:


CM-12 120mm heavy towed mortar:


CM-16 155mm towed howitzer cannon:


CM-20 203mm mounted rail gun:


CM-Q3 mounted antiaircraft quad-cannon:


These are separate from tank cannon designs as these are all dedicated artillery. However, the CM-4 automatic grenade launcher, CM-6 60mm light mortar, and CM-8 81mm medium mortar are all part of this series as they provide fire support in their own manner. In spite of this, they are attached to the Infantry's Weapons support units due to their smaller size, making them more readily available for troops currently under fire, rather than getting firing orders for field guns, heavy mortars, or howitzers.

So...that'd be all for now. When I come up with something better I'll slap this into the database.

Wow, that's some really good weapon design there! I llove the Dewback models, but the towed artillery is also really good.

You have received praise form S-H. No more needs to be said. But I will Razz
There is some GREAT work here! Very Happy

EXCELLENT job Jace! Very Happy I LOVE those walkers!

Might I suggest adding tile work over the shields of your towed pieces though?

Overall, GREAT work! These are most impressive! Very Happy

The Dewback is Arik's model, and in fact most of those two pics are from Arik. I, as usual, just modified it to my liking from both an aesthetic point and a practicality point.

Yeah, the Mechs are pretty cool.

As for the tiles, I thought about it and tried it out, but again it just...didn't feel right to me, having the extra thickness and the stair-step shape on top of the nice angles...

Great job, all of these are very effective-looking. Funny, I just built an artillery piece for the Army. I suppose I should post that soon... Razz

SNOT armor panels perhaps?

Not sure how I'd be able to manage that - figuring out some panels (which are SNOT BTW) was enough of a pain...
