Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the Object-263! Sometimes referred to as "The Sandal of Stalin" or "The Yolo Wagon" this Soviet Tank-Destroyer is easily one of my favorite Russian Tanks, and I've always wanted to create it in SimplePlanes, so here it is!
I've been working on this for about a week by now, and I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that this is quite possibly one of my best creations, if not the best creation I've posted on SimplePlanes. Equipped with a 130mm Cannon, high top speed, and great maneuverability, this TD doesn't mess around!
Here's some pictures:
It has a fully functional interior, with working gun movements, and it's fully furnished, with control rooms, the ammoracks at the sides, and the gun wheel spins as you aim up and down too.
Controls: Pitch and roll to drive, VTOL and TRIM controls the gun movements. Holding down on roll allows you to traverse in place, just like the real thing would. "Fire Weapons" to fire the 130 mm S-70A Cannon, and observe the muzzle-flash that EliteArsenals24 oh so kindly did for me. (I don't know how to create complex mechanisms like that, so he helped me.) The tank itself has 20 rounds in total, so be sure to make every shot count, unless you're just screwing around in SkyPark City, in that case, go crazy. (I am not liable for any 130mm HEAT-Rounds ending up flying across the map, ending up damaging public property.)
This was a very big challenge for me, especially with getting the gun mechanism to work properly, every time I thought I had done it right, there'd be something that prevented the gun from moving up/down or left/right. Also, due to the fact that I'm on iOS, my little IPad Mini can't really take too much, and by 400 parts, my iPad was already heating up pretty good. This has over 500 parts, so you can already imagine the stress this poor thing had to go through to create this, lol.
Anyway, enough said,
