Recon Armor WIP 4

After some paintovers I've worked on what could possibly be the design I go with. Going to seek another round of feedback, and I'm pretty sure I want to add a remote gun to the top.

Once the design is finalized I'll detail out the drone launchers and do a full detailed breakdown of the features and fun.

Front and rear view with the drone box removed and the sensor mast withdrawn.

Here are a few renders with the sensor mast up at full extension, the dish and optics deployed.

Now that the mechanics have been worked out I've been focusing more on the block model which will be used as a base for the final spec sheet.

Currently I will be focusing on innovations that help it stay out of sight and sound while bringing back the best possible intel to HQ.

Current broad details:

-Side armor doubles as main battery store allowing the hybrid motor extended EV movement with very little to no engine noise.

-6 Drone batteries on each side can send up VTOL units as needed.

-Collapsable boom arm can extend for covert surveillance and powerful communications.

Next off: First major round of feedback and critique!

Recon Armor WIP2

Did a few hull revisions before taking it into Sketchup for a quick Block model. Model matched up pretty well and came back in as a foundation for a 3rd round of tweaks. I have the sensor boom's mechanic filled out pretty well so will probably start work on a second more complete model before taking it to final render and staging.
