After 8 months in development, hopefully it was worth the wait.
- A certain game developer.
This is the FV4034 Challenger 2, specifically the Challenger 2 of the 1st Royal Tank Regiment, B squadron, DS 68 AA, replicated with cutthroat attention to detail and realism. Special thanks to @NumbersNumbersTheMan and @BaconAircraft- this build is dedicated to you folks- and SPMC & SPBC for testing and help (also Jimmy).
For those who want none else, I’ll cut right to the chase. Here’s the controls.
1. Gear Up/Down - Pitch
2. Turn - Roll
3. No input - Auto-Brake
1. Turret Rotation - Yaw
2. Gun Elevation - Trim
3. Camera 4: Gunner Sight
- AG1: Enable main gun
- AG3: Enable NVD
4. Landing Gear: Smoke Grenades x 2
1. AG2: Open optics armor coverings
2. AG8: Driving Lights
3. Camera 1: Commander's View
4. Camera 2: Commander’s Periscope
- VTOL: Rotate Periscope
5. Camera 3: Loader's View
- AG4: Enable Coaxial & GPMG
- VTOL: Rotate GPMG
- Trim: Elevate GPMG
This build faithfully replicates the real gunner sights of the Challenger 2. Reference below for gunner sight symbology.
Image intensifier night-vision devices are equipped on both the gunner sight and commander periscope.
Two types of ammunition for the main gun are provided: L27A1 APFSDS (CHARM 3) and L31A7 HESH.
There additionally is a L94A1 coaxial chain gun and a L37A2 (FN MAG) GPMG for the loader.
The L8 smoke system is also available with 10 smoke canisters.
This build features excruciating detail! Please take the time to really look around it; there are tons of features and tidbits replicated with painstaking accuracy (dimensions, weight, you name it... and also an easter egg; please do tell me if you find it).
The smoke grenades are a new development; they work just like the real thing!
Wow. This has been in the works since April this year, and I finally got around to finishing it, just on time for Christmas! My first real build actually- it’s been quite a ride, and it’s almost a bit sad now that I’ve finished it. There definitely are things I want to improve on, but that’s for later when I have a better machine. I’ve really been testing the limits of my laptop with this one.
Either way, it’s definitely been a tough year everyone, but let’s look forward to the good things to come. Until my next project then-- see you all.
Have fun, as always-
