Something new, a tribute to my favourite tank in the game, the old FV 4202. A few changes around, to make a little more reality based, with a little embellishment
where the main armament is concerned. This would be a case of replacing the Centurion and supplementing the Chieftain instead of a rival. A 'what if' the project had been further developed and since it was born from the Action X concept, it's very likely it would have been adapted for an L7. Been thinking of 'C' names to christen it, an in service moniker, Candour, Commodore, a new Centaur for example.

The base version;

BAOR version;

BATUS verison;


More needs to bee done to it, like a squashing down of the turret (increasing cheek angles) or a widening of the hull, to further resemble the real one but we shall see.

Very nice! I like the BAOR and BATUS versions a lot.

 

If they looked like that and were ever sold, it'd probably make me want to buy one, despite the reputation I've seen about how awful the FV 4202 is.

Glad you like them, although I can't decide, think I'd take them all. :teethhappy:

In its current state, it's tough to recommend, but it can work when you learn the limitations. Of which there are several, oh but how I crave the old one back.

They're amazing, i really wish our current FV4202 P wasn't as ugly as it is in-game atm.

It's not a bad looking tank as such imo (thoughas Grey says the model is not accurate), but it's way too plain - a gun shroud, MG on top or even some track links stored on the front just to give it a few more details.

True, it does look extremely bare atm, almost as if it's still in the factory.

Discovered your work these days,congratulations, good sir!. WG could employ you to make the reskins, they look good and would actually sell, instead of pepperoni-wheeled Motherlands, soccer jersey Hammers, flag tanks , among others :teethhappy:. Would take your black/white/red triangle Tiger over the Hammer anytime, haha. Not counting the Mod '63 E4, that would be enough incentive to continue the line x).

Too kind squire and cheers Echo. :)  True, if they just copied and pasted the left side bins to the right I'd be happy, how it's supposed to look. Gotta say the Mod '63 series (as I plan) would be perfect as an offshoot cosmetic goal for tier Xs.
