Contact - Tank Hunter by Shimmering-Sword Contact - Tank Hunter by Shimmering-Sword
Another contact commission down, and the last one of the vehicle set. We are moving on to robotics now :)

The design for this one is taken from an old sketch of mine, some of you may remember. Modified to biometals taste and cleaned up, it came out well.

For :iconbiometal79: ~biometal79

Contact designs are not for personal or commercial use, no derivative works please.

NICE "NEW" version of the USAF A-10 'WARTHOG". Have you ever seen a A-10 for real.? I did I was in the USAF, I worked around them all the time.  the GUN is a "30MM" gattling gun. Next time you go to a hardware store look at a  30mm socket,that's how big the round is.Actually its about 9 inches long,round and casing included. it can eat thru a tank like a hot knife thru butter.

Your picture would be nice if that was the NEW A-10 though, it does look meaner.

Reminds me of the "New" Imperial Navy Lightning, but much nicer. That and I preferred the old design more. Full Thumbs up to you on this!

The Army APACHE helicopters have a 30mm gun on them too, the MARINES have a landing craft with one also. and the USAF has a AC-130 with on on it too.  The AC-130 is a FLYING TANK, check it out when you have time.

sorry NAVYcat, but the A-10 II and III are visually similar. the picture is a modified LEGO futuristic A-10

I know about the AC-130 and it is basically a flying Artillery platform for CAS operations.

I am not going to say what it obviously looks like. I will say that I would love to see somebody build this for real. Like a RC model or something. If this could fly, I would pay good money for one. Awesome work! The design of the engines look like this could be used for VTOL flight. I gotta say though...this looks like one heavy beast.

i like the design. Question, did you think of the aerodynamics of it? Although you it the Tank Hunter
(which is a cool and bad-ass name that shares the heritage of the A-10 Thunderbolt) you are sacrificing performance for firepower

The A-10 itself sacrifices Speed for firepower, stability and lower stall speeds. It is actually remarkably maneuverable however.
