Order Scout Hoverbike cross-section- sketch




This one is a bit of a work-in-progress from the Ground Control universe- a RTS-game that I played years and years ago. The game itself came out in 1999, so it's been a good 18 years since the release of it. That said, it should be obvious that the original in-game model of this unit was very poor in details, a low-polygon model so I had to imagine a significant part of the details of the bike! I hope I did some justice to the original.

About this piece: this is a cross-section of an Order of the New Dawn scout unit, a fast moving, agile hoverbike. It is powered by an anti-gravity generator which gives it good ground clearance, a few meters or more by the looks of it. This means it doesn't need to go around most obstacles, making it an effective scout unit. I imagined the anti-grav generator being situated just under the pilots chest there, a large semi-circular thing encased in thermal insulation, cryo-pipes and sensors. There is a small pulse laser fitted on a stand at the back of the bike for some self-defence- it has its pulse generator inside the rear portion of the chassis, the accelerator thingie that sort of looks like a wheel. The pilot has a modified Order Crusader armor suit that is connected to the bike and its sensors through the two cable linkages at the back. Through the suits own and the bikes sensors, the pilot is able to ascertain the combat situation very effectively. The bike is not very well armoured, capable of withstanding shrapnel but not much else- the pilot is a bit better protected in his heavy suit, however.

Other details visible show the insides of the suit and helmet, propulsion systems, radar at the front, cryogenic tanks, controls and displays for the pilot and the on-board computer under the seat. 

I'll probably make this into a infographic like the Crayven APC in my gallery, so look forward to that! Enjoy! :)
