Russian BMP
A tank I built for an upcoming chapter of Sacretis.
About this creation

The Russian BMP is a light tank used by Iraq forces in operation Desert Storm. Back when I played the game Desert Storm II, Back to Baghdad I would shutter at the sight of this fiend, because it meant certain death.




I needed a tank for my current series, and after experimenting, I wound up with this. By accident, it turned out like the BMP, perfect for what I have planned.




The first thing you've probably noticed is the use of wheels instead of treads. Well, I don't have any treads (the main reason I have yet to build a Scorpion Tank).




I have next to no smooth parts, so I used the angle-blocks (I have many).




The back end is where I think the engine is (I did no research on this one), so I just plonked down a bunch of grills. Some tail-lights to, just 'cause.




I hate the hatches just as much as you do, but there was no alternative.




The turret isn't as smooth as the real thing, but I don't have the appropriate parts.




Lastly, a sneak peak for what is to come in Chapter II of Sacretis.



I got the Dawngaurd DLC for Skyrim, beat it too, and my internet went out for a few days. Despite these distractions, I am almost ready to post the next installment of Sacretis (which I've mentioned about a billion times above).

This is a bit awkward, but I was hoping you guys could support my up-and-coming trying-to-fix-various-video-problems Gaming Channel on YouTube, the name is simply EricMickle3, thanks in advance.


Finally, rate and comment if the mood strikes you.

nice job man, but one piece of advice, where are the rear doors for the troops? they dont have to function, just more authentic, if you do that ther are 2 doors. also i desperately need help, im making the unsc infinity for my fleet, and it is to scale with your frigate staten. i need help with the shape and where the bridge is and other things, please, any help would be nice. im about to call quits on the first infinity to mocpages.

Pretty good! The turret needs to be thinner and shorter. As for treads: http://www.legoeducation.us/eng/product/chain_links/845 You can find very cheap treads here, as well as gears and various other pieces.

Pretty cool, although the BMP isn't a tank. :P The wheels work fine in place of tracks here as well.

The fact it uses wheels kinda puts it into a unique category of its own, very cool!

Sweet build, even without the "right" pieces, it still looks deadly.

Looks awesome! The wheels do actually look better then Tracks, especially as the front and back ones are raised.- Hayden.
