Mumaphant by Legato895

Got the itch to do something fun while teaching on monday and got a few hours to tackle this scene of absurdity.

Lots of values I would tweak and other issues of readability that should be addressed but I've gotten what I want out of it. Time to move on!

Scout Recon Vehicle - Breakdown by Legato895
Scout Recon Vehicle - Breakdown
Created as a portfolio piece.


Technical Fanfiction

The Scout Reconnaissance Vehicle was designed to fill the military's growing need for UAV bandwidth, FOB security and covert fire control. The goal was to create the smallest and lightest armoured vehicle possible while allowing for a extendible 7 meter sensor boom and deployable Tier 0 drones.

While primarily an electric vehicle the SRV does have a small on-board gas turbine engine to provide charging and backup power. The reduced sound footprint offered by the electric motors greatly aids the SRV in avoidance while allowing it to get closer to hostile forces than would typically be expected. The range of the SRV is almost quadrupled with the addition of battery skirting which double as both Electro Reactive Armer and reserve vehicle power. Each panel is isolated from one another allowing energy to be transferred even when all neighbouring panels have been breached.

The SRV's only active defences are the modular CROWS mount (Shown here with a Mk 19 grenade launcher), Smoke grenades and a missile countermeasure laser.

The Sensor mast includes a long range dish, wide band jammer and 2 bi-directional stabilized camera pods. Each pod includes a primary optic along with LiDAR, range finder, target painter and signalling laser.

Each SRV has 2 accessory slots which can store anything from liquid fuel, extra batteries or in the example above drone bays. These Tier 0 drones can run automated loitering patterns and patrol waypoints that create a realtime map of the surrounding terrain. The drones also have a retractable hook that can deploy from their top allowing them to hang from lines or branches for a low power sentry mode (not shown).


Thank you :iconhazzard65: and :iconukitakumuki: for helping me out with feedback from the earliest stages of design.
