LIU All Terrain Light Artillery Scooter
Like an atlas, the ATLAS covers every terrain...
About this creation
LIU All Terrain Light Artillery Scooter - ATLAS


The Ludgonian Industrial Union, posting yet another small moc while we work on something larger, presents the All Terrain Light Artillery Scooter. Yes, the name's a bit long winded, but it adds up to the crafty acronym of ATLAS. Haha, score one for the LIU.



With a single track, the ATLAS is sort of like a cross between a snow mobile, motorcycle, and a tank. Sort of...








Here's a view down the ATLAS's long, single tank track. It may seem simple, but the design allows the ATLAS to navigate any terrain. (Hence the ALL Terrain part of the name.) The ATLAS can even handle water up to five feet deep.





The ATLAS sports two artillery cannons designed to eliminate enemy infantry. Each cannon can fire up to 5,000 plasma rounds before the ATLAS's batteries must be recharged. Above the cannons, you can see two communication antennas. Yes, you can even get your favorite radio station.





The ATLAS's pilot gets an accurate readout of enemy locations with his handy screen.
















On the side of the ATLAS, two radars receive real-time information and transmit it to the pilot's screen. The pic above shows how the radars can fold up against the body.








The side view shows off the ATLAS's plasma batteries (for the cannons) and its exhaust system. Also note the radars folded up...again.







When the radars are lowered, you get a view of how the chair is attached to the track. Its pretty simple and probably not worthy of having its own pic, but I had five minutes to kill.







The chair and harness lift up and sit high above the track for the shallow water crossings. The only downside...the guns move with the chair and are rendered useless, unless your men are trying to commit suicide.






Semi-Action Photos



Two ATLAS's take up position in a sparse forest overlooking an enemy position. Soon, they will unleash hell.







It could in fact cross this river, if it wanted too.









Note: The shallow water crossings are limited to five feet even. Not 5'1" or 5'2", 5'0". Those few inches of water will flood the plasma chamber causing a chemical reaction that will leave the ATLAS disabled and in a hundred pieces. Just to be safe, the LIU will void any warranty offered, if your pilots exceeds one foot of water. Yes, its unfair, but so is life.



For the reviewer that gave it a three because it couldn't steer, here's the pic I forgot to load. To steer, you lean to the left or right, like a motorcycle. I'm sorry that wasn't clear to you.

i like my vehicles massive, but, for it s purpose, i think it s just right! and could be quite effective, the unitrack design would make it hard to steer but, as artillery, it s no problem, as is the open cockpit, you should never attack with the artillery in the front anyways! nice work!

Cool but the driver is a open target to the CQD's and my snipers. Just a little thing you should fix.

Nice combat scooter, looks combat ready. I like how you stick with a particular color scheme in all yours moc's. Nice work.

I have to agree - it looks like a killer black snail. Nice design and Henry Ford would be proud of your colour choice. Lee.

What a cool little design. Love the strange look of this thing, particularly with the seat in the "up" position (despite the down-pointing guns). Some good use of a few uncommon pieces as well. Nicely done!

It's shape is really odd. But it's cool and effective.

Very cool and as always, very unique. The acronym is good, but I feel like I wanna name it "Hell-snail" cuz of the uni tread. Don't ask me why! Nice work man.

This is a very original design, but not my favourite. Still, it's very good, and I am looking forward to seeing that bigger project soon. SvT

Looks great, and Don....by the time the enemy sees the driver, it will already be too late.
