And the rough Wacom concepts continue. Another tank, this one made by Germane (futuristic political bloc inspired by Germany but not descended from it (history is fragmented and therefore strange things like this occur) and retrofitted with parts by the fictional consortium/political bloc Vulne (the name we gave the studio. Pro added for Production). It was clearly inspired by a German WWII Jagdpanzer 38 (T) Hetzer. This one's a little more pimped out but still a fairly quick rough. More to come :)

Reminds me of a Gue'vessa tank for Warhammer 40K

Also a WWII armor enthusiast I see! I marked it down as a Hetzer derivative before I read the description, haha. Nice implementation of Panzer design elements, though I wish the bottom of the glacis wasn't so curved xD

Aye, indeed inspired by the Hetzer and German WWII armor. As much as the Nazis were pretty bad mojo they were quite out there and inventive with their machines. This was a quick rough that I never got back round to refining so it's got some things that can be improved for sure. I still dig it overall though, prob a little Makoto Kobayashi snuck in there too ;)

Thank you kindly and thanks for the fav on this. I have other tanks planned, just haven't gotten round to them yet but they will show up here eventually :)

hurrah! German tank doodles are a sure sign of an able mechanical doodler.

Indeed, I'm quite fascinated by the aesthetics of WWII weaponry. The Germans came up with some crazy stuff so it's a great place to look for ideas in creating fictional military technology. I dig a lot of the WWII tanks look as well, they were just some interesting machines.

I love the interpretation of what has to be one of the nicest looking assault guns ever made, the slopes on the side armour just look wonderful.

The frontal ball mount weapon is mounted too low on the hull, admittedly this is artistic licence but its going to get clogged up the first time your fictional crew took this off road, and its field of fire will be far too limited by terrain features. It still of course looks very nice.
