M16A2 Valkyrie II TUSK I

5,773 TheSpartan  4 months ago

Entering the battlefield comes the latest variant of the Valkyrie II, the TUSK I. Featuring a better gunner's scope, a barrel mounted heavy machine gun, a better APS system, and improved placement of VIHAT tiles, this tank will dominate at urban combat. Taking over from the VIHAT Valkyrie II variant, this will make those sneaky fiends commit die. Not a joke. This description is relatively short today, since you can find all the specs for practically the same tank here. I insist that you check it out.

AG-1 + Ground Weapon Selection: Activate the M60A4 cannon and turret, Yaw for traverse (Elevation is automatically calculated and controlled), FireWeapons button to fire
AG-2 + Ground Weapon Selection: Activate the topside FB-100A .50 heavy machine gun, Yaw+Trim for traverse/elevation, FireWeapons button to fire
AG-3 + Ground Weapon Selection: Activate all hard-kill APS systems, FireGuns to fire (CAUTION: MAY CAUSE LAG)
AG-4: Activate headlights and turret-mounted gunnery light (ACTUALLY FUNCTIONAL)
AG-5: Activate Hull Leaning, Trim to adjust
AG-6: Activate M19 Smoke Grenade Launchers
AG-7: Open hatches, open side skirts for tread maintenance
AG-8: Deactivate suspension and two-plane stabilizer
VTOL Controls: Modifies the ground clearance of the tank, can crouch for lower profile or stand tall for better offroad capabilities

One of a couple new features, this is an improved APS system inspired by Tankistrus37. Puts out a cloud of lead that lasts 1 second and travels rather far, but it takes a 1 second break between each discharge and only covers an area equivalent to +/-45° horizontally, and -6/+18° vertically.
Improved Gunner's Sight
A major improvement over the sight on the VIHAT variant, sporting similarities to the M1A2 Abrams sight. Massive zoom, but contained in a significantly larger housing.



Driver's view

Improved gunsight, note the horizontal lines (a bit hard to see, apologies)

Hello there

- HMG in the bustle rack still unintentionally elevates and depresses with Trim+AG-2
- Two-plane stabilizer WILL NOT keep the gun 100% on target
- Turret is not evenly balanced, and will sway when the vehicle starts moving
- APS may cause lag, be careful
- Gunner view and driver view are not recommended unless for cinematics or pictures
