The Royal Arsenal - FDI Land Systems Sirius Armoured Mortar Carrier (Tracked), (AMC (T)) is a desert terrain optimised heavy mortar carrier built upon the Salamander ARV(T) chassis and in service with Freethinker Ground Self Defence Force and the Freethinker Territorial Army.
Armed with a 120mm Mortar, a 20mm turreted cannon for self defence and two gunports for sidearms, the vehicle is designed to support mobile armoured formations by engaging concrete fortrifications and infantry strongholds.
Around 1,100 vehicles were manufactured, about half in active service (and in the Commonwealth this includes impressive combat histories against the organised guerillas and raiders of the deserts and Ork infestations) and the rest in maintained storage should there be a significant need for their use. Some units when necessary strip out the mortar and use the vehicle as an ad hoc IFV, though with only the top hatch for rapid exit this is generally not advisable against organised opponents.
A design I did for the 2012 Ron Paul movement. I wanted to do something that would grab people's attention when they see it. Not commissioned from Ron Paul or his campaign but from a group of people who want to make people informed of the truth and the availability of other options other than what Fox News tells you about. We got lost in the day to day routines of working, going to school, feeding our families, etc and lose the interest to research and understand what is going on in the country we live in. I appreciate any feedback about the art and understand that there are those who disagree with Dr. Ron Paul's beliefs and that is one of the very freedoms he looks to preserve. So please feel free to criticize my work and give any advice(I am new to this type of art) that might make it better but please keep the political debates to other forums. Thanks for taking the time to look!
Here is the next conceptual model of the Halo 5 Arbiter! Took a heavy influence off of Thel's original combat harness from Halo 2/ Halo 3 but pretty much just did a heavy upgrade on it. Also, thank you guys for clearing up that issue about the Arbiter being dead or alive.
My friend and I played Halo 1-3 the past couple of weeks just to get all the way through them. And I love the game and the story from the game is just awesome. Thought I would make a teaser for a Halo movie which I think IS in talks.
A concept of the Sol Defense Force Marine. I'm still working out the kinks of the armor design. Any feedback from you guys is welcome.
SDF MARINE CORPS The Sol Defense Force Marine Corps is a branch of the Sol Defense Force that is responsible for land-based military operations as well as the protection of Naval vessels and installations from attack. They are a rugged and diverse assortment of well equipped and well trained men and women.
The Marine Corps serves as a versatile combat element, and is adapted to a wide variety of combat operations. The Marine Corps was initially composed of infantry combat forces serving aboard naval vessels, responsible for security of the ship, its captain and officers, offensive and defensive combat during boarding actions, by acting as sharpshooters, and carrying out amphibious assaults. The Marines were officially designated as the SDF’s main combat element in 2130 after the role they played in the Terrestrial Wars on Mars, disbanding and replacing the SDF Army.
The Marines are the most rugged infantry force known. Despite the fact that the Marines are highly respected, most special forces units (SOSTs in particular) see the Marines as inferior to themselves. This has caused a deep-seated resentment of SOSTs within the ranks of the Marine Corps. Often mocking their “superior” training and armor, Marines joke that SOSTs are just regular Marines who put on a fancy helmet and call themselves special forces.
