Military Escort Truck - Tacked (MET-Tr)
So this is my newest truck/jeep thing, partly inspired by Andrew Somers, and partly by the Halo Warthog. What do you all think?
About this creation


Heavy. Tough. Fast.

Need a military escort to protect those defenseless transports? The MET-Tr (Military Escort Truck - Tracked) 'The Panther' is the choice for you. From its thick armor plating and tough, durable tracks, to its powerful engine and massive forward turret, this is one jeep the enemy won't want to mess with. Built to last, and withstand massive abuse, your transports will never have to fear anything again.

Note: For best performance, use in conjunction with the MRAP IED-Detector 'Minesweep' to ensure ultimate safety for your transports.

Note: Comes only in grey and desert tan.
Note: Bulk orders of ~30-60 or more only.

So this was greatly inspired by Andrew Somers, and besides the suspension, I also stole the main turret idea from him.

I apparently am WAY better ay making ships (spapeships) than at making vehicles. For example, it to me an entire THREE DAYS to finally get this right, whereas it took me all of three hours to whip this up.



Working features include:


Suspension
Opening Doors
Opening Hood (and engine)
Removable Roof
Fully Functional Turret (Behind the seats)
There is also a spot for a second turret in the back.

To see everything, watch the video!




Here's a little video I made for you guys. Sorry I sound so newbish. :P





The pictures are pretty obvious, so I'll let them do the talking.

























Here are some ‘in action’ shots, taken in the heat of battle my backyard. Which is your favorite?









































King of the Grill!




Well, what did you guys think?

Quoting Brody Allen Really Like this truck! It looks great. I have looked at a lot of your past MOCs and would agree with you that your building skill is constantly getting better. Your part usage, innovation, and composition are great and getting better. Keep up the great work!
Thank you!

Quoting thebob 13666 Great job! I really like the suspension design. Does the axle between the set of triangles allow it to operate as a single solid axle, or is it still more like Andrew's original independent suspension?
Yes. The axle in the middle holds both sides together, which makes it easier to 'bounce' so to speak.

First off, brilliant job. The vehicle is very nice, great to see it is detailed on both the inside and outside witheven small details taken into consideration. It would be interesting to see it with motors, would make a very nice remote control 'escort' although I doubt the motors would fit. In the vid you didn't sound newbish, just sort of ill, like you had a cold. And if you are better at ships than ground vehicles, I'm really looking forward to seeing the rest of your creations. Very talented, well done and sorry for the small wall of text...

Quoting Andrew Somers Nice job here! Maybe you should try some wheels and suspension on this. I'm sure that would look just as nice.
Did you watch the video? It has suspension, which is why it took me all of three days to finally get right.

Awesome, It looks very cool. The only thing that I can think of that would make it better would be steering. Other then then this MOC is great!
