View Full Version : Vehicle: Challenger 2 (Main Battle Tank)

Hi all,

I've started work on the Challenger 2. As it stands I'm finishing up the foundation for the texture before I move onto the wear & tear, weathering, etc. Here is a link to the real thing:

Vital stats: 4k Verts, 2048x1048.

C & C very welcome!

Looking good so far.

However, might I ask what references you are working from? It seems to me that either the turret is too short, or that the rear of the tank is too long.

Hi Wokky,

Back part does indeed over-extend a little bit, already in the process of getting fixed :) Good look though.

Ah, seems that I've got a good eye for such things then, hehe.

Keep up the good work. :)

Good stuff. Some parts are a bit out of wack in terms of proportion as already mentioned, so I look forward to seeing the fixed version. I have a leclerc in the works at the moment, have you guys had any luck getting tanks into the game?

Thanks for your comments. We haven't tried importing this vehicle yet, but all others we've tried have worked so I think this one won't be a problem either (track UV's are correctly setup, etc.) :D Don't know which team you're on, but good luck with your leclerc & mod!

Tank looks very good. Can't comment on the proportions or anything (I'm stuck in era from over 60 years ago:D). When you mean 4k verts are you reffering to poly tri-count? Anyhow, love the "Little Bird" chopper you guys have done:applause:!

Thanks Force_Multiplier :D Yep, it's the tri-count.
