IDF "Paladin" Armored Personnel Carrier
Here's what I consider my best effort at a vehicle other than one that flies, walks, or hovers. LDD makes so much possible! Enjoy...
About this creation
The Paladin APC is an essential tool of the International Defense Force. It supplies troops and ammunition to the front lines and also can play as armored support when things get hectic. Although it only has enough room for three soldiers and is considered the midget of the armored vehicle world, the Paladin is just as tough and versatile as any other unit the humans can field. It is armored with a foot of multi-ply titanium steel plating and can be armed with anything from a laser gatling to an anti-aircraft rocket turret. It has full independent suspension that can handle any terrain, and a winch capable of pulling an alien mothership out of whatever crater the Paladin puts it in. It is configured to carry extra weapons and equipment on the outside, and when the top weapon is removed, the cargo rails can be utilized. All of these features make the Paladin bad news for the Krajj.




I built this bad boy using the SNOT technique. I think it's the first MOC I've built that way.




You can see here the toolbox and mega wrench that are strapped to the outside of the Paladin. The other side has a pair of assault rifles attached.








The tiny passenger space. I really wanted to make this part wider, longer, or deeper; but I couldn't keep the scale that way.








That gun on the top is an anti-vehicle energy gatling gun. It can run on the automated IFF (identify friend or foe) computer or it can be switched to manual.




I tried to close up the gap between the windshield and the frame, but I wasn't able to without redoing the whole front of the Paladin, and I was pretty happy with what I had.




Side door shut.




Side door open. I forgot to take a photo of the inside, but the driver has a gearstick and a computer on his left side.




All in all, I’m very happy with how the APC turned out. If you look at some of my other attempts at wheeled vehicles, you’ll see why. ;)




Here’s the winch. Normally when I add a winch, it ends up bulging out of the front very unseemly like. This time it fit nicely between the wheel axles.




Does anyone else use those Technic pins with the studs to put studs on both ends of the bricks?




Here’s Captain Parker using a couple of his soldiers to demonstrate the independent suspension, as there weren’t any desert boulders or alien scum handy.




’You’re not off the hook yet, trooper!’

This is a fantastic APC! The scale and shape are impeccable, and the playability factor is exquisite. Would you build something like this for TCC?

Functions always good like opening door or suspension. This bad boy has got a very good playability. Exceedingly good half track.

It's a whole lot of truck. I really like the half track configuration. Always very cool looking. Put a heavy weapon on top, like a missile rack. Or maybe a trailer of some sort? Like a communications center? It's a cool utility platform. Attack!

An impressive and unique build. I like it.

I like it. I might reclassify it as a "multi-purpose vehicle" or something like that, as 3 people, 1 of which is the driver, seems a bit meager for an APC.

Well done! I love the gun and the overall shape is very cool.

Wait, am I driving it? That head on that guy in the 6th to last picture looks suspiciously like me... ;)

Quoting Ben (Flare) . Very nice little tank-type-thing! :D IDF stands for the Israeli Defense Force though ;)
Or, Impala's Destroying France! Imps Dedicated to Fiefdoms! Etc., etc., etc.
