Black Earth: Render und Previews
Black Earth präsentieren neue Preview Bilder auf Facebook.
New prototypes have arrived. The Agent 3d print was so perfect that certain miniscule gaps on her cybernetic arms are actually visible and required some putty fillings. It is truly amazing what 3d printing allows us to do these days.
A shoutout to 3DHUB.gr for their amazing work!
‘Robotics industries had been trying to develop an exoskeleton battlesuit for military applications for over 50 years before a reliable design was finally developed. The Ranger suit of power armour combines amazing protection against small arms and servo support which allows the use of heavier weapons. It also incorporates a set of medical aides which monitor the wearer’s bio and administer painkillers and adrenaline as needed. However, the most imporant feature of the Ranger suit is the rocket-fuel-powered jet pack which gives the wearer the ability to traverse vertical distances with ease and perform combat maneuvers unlike any that have ever been utilised in warfare.
Having only been introduced the last 15 years in the armed forces, Rangers are regarded by conservative veterans as an “Easy mode combatant straight out of a first person shooter game”. Despite the scorn they get from their brothers in arms, Ranger squads are perhaps the most effective assault tool in the UEF arsenal.
The Ranger suit has revolutionised battlefield tactics in a similar way that the Armoured Tank did over 150 years ago.’
‘The Tecton Order relies on the industries owned by its prominent members for all of their military technology. This means that although they dont have access to the latest UEF military technology, they have exclussive access to some very advanced pieces of gear. Once such example is the Minotaur Armoured Fighting Vehicle.
Designed and developed by Lang & Schroeder Defence Industries, the Minotaur provides a versatile chassis that can easily be adapted to any combat role. At the moment the most common models in use are the Minotaur APC and the Minotaur IFV which are both manned by a crew of two.
The Minotaur APC is a wheeled all terrain vehicle armed with a 7.62 mm smart machine gun. Its purpose is limited to fast personnel transportation and evacuation in combat zones.
The Minotaur IFV is a tracked heavier variant that sports a remote controlled turret armed with a 105mm gun. The transport capacity of the IFV is limited but unlike the APC, it is designed to accompany its charge in battle and provide fire support. With its substantial armament coupled with its speed it can even threaten heavy battle tanks. ‘
The model is still a work in progress – there are quite a lot of details missing – but I found the opportunity to try better rendering techniques.
Konstantinos Skenteridis – thanks for the tip
