Just wondering what the Stryker mirrors* on the back are going to be? ???

ECM Sensors - they will be flat black along with the big one under the smoke dischargers and the 2 smaller boxes on the angle next to the .50 cal mount. Crooked it shall be, too late now it is

Hammer's tanks and combat cars had a crew served tri-barrel laser mount.......

Not all vehicles had tri-barrel power-guns mounted in front of the driver, it was the "hero" vehicle, & it was mentioned as an unauthorised addition that Hammer tolerated/allowed because the tank was usually the lead vehicle in any assault. But that's not important!

The Stryker mirror thing was a "Thank the gods, he's Human!" moment. ;)

Still masterful work, as usual, though. :smiley:

What a beast!  And I say that with admiration and sincerity, as massive as that thing is it still "looks light on its feet" and fast enough to get out of harms way if necessary.

That's a good camo pattern - it really breaks up the shape.

Not in particular, the tan turned out lighter than I wanted. Hope the washes will darken it.

Looking fine as this, has to be deployable.    It all adds up between design and attention to details.  :smiley:   :smiley:   :smiley:      Very much 21st century.
