The Iron Reich P0wnzwagen is my first factioned MOC.
It is shaped somewhat like a brick (it is actually about the size of a brick, too), a testament to the Reich's ability to engineer extraordinarily ugly vehicles and a symbol of the manner in which it is supposed to drop from the sky.
Why was the P0wnzwagen built? Because wars cannot be won in space alone. And because I wanted to try out its unusual cockpit configuration. This ship was designed to deliver a 5 soldier squad plus a pilot to a future territory's doorstep, and stick around to provide close air support if necessary.
The original P0wnzwagen was built in early 2005. It had virtually no interior. The one shown here is actually a variant with a better interior and additional command and communication equipment on the exterior. P0wnzwagens can also be fitted with medical equipment, and even mobile artillery platforms.
The stereoscopic camera cluster on top is the only way for a pilot to see out of the vehicle. The centered dish antenna is an inverted lever stuck to a common round dish, then sunk in the open part of a 2x3 inverted slope brick.
The rear. I can't put my finger on it, but somehow the rear came out looking like an actual modern APC. A bradley , perhaps? The window in the rear is the only window in the whole vehicle, so soldiers inside can see the bullets flying at them!
