For a change I tried designing a car instead of a weapon. Well it ended up being a car WITH a weapon. Hope you like it :-)

About the vehicle:
This is the Mercedes GTK Concept in Bundeswehr (German Army) ISAF camouflage. It's essentially a 2 seater next generation offroad vehicle filled with technical ideas. To begin with, the GTK has no axes but 4 electric wheel hub motors in every wheel. The wheels are attached by 6-axis KUKA robotarms and steered by FESTO fluidic muscles from -90° to +90°. This allows the vehicle to be extremely offroad capable, fast and agile.

The car has no windows and is designed to be aerodynamic and ballistic impact-reflecting. It also features split gullwingdoors, a electric winch, 360° cameras, slideout weapon storrage, a 40mm GMW and a battery slate system below the bonnet.

Well, the Golf has not exactly the best ballistic reflection properties :la:
But it WOULD look cool :D

The presentation and the description sound like an actual brochure for this thing, and I'm sure if you put it on one several websites would take it for the real deal. Fantastic!

Well there is already the Dingo, which is basically a Mercedes Unimog chassis with armoured body by KMW and remote controlled machine-gun.
Nice work though.

He said 40 mm GMW GMW or GraMaWa (Granatmaschinenwaffe)
That means 40mm grenade launcher (for which the barrel looks too long)
Looks like a .50 caliber.
But a bushmaster would be more preferred.   www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVm6hv…

when I saw this I had to have one.  And now I do!  I painted it with a dark red-violet carbon fiber.
keep up the awesome modeling and let me know if you license any more designs to fabricators.
