This is the M8 Lariat 1A1L in its "Long Arm" upgrade configuration done for and in service with the Republic of Coorsota's Defense Forces and several additional nations.
The first two links have art done by Etoile Arcture and are his own works in his own style, though based on the Lariat. Etoile Arcture and Coorsota collaborated on the Lariat tank, with M22 Jackal beings its designation for EA. The last link is of EA's M35 Cataphract, that art is entirely his with no basis on anything of mine. He is an excellent artist.
Ah, I see. But the third seems to base upon Lariat model, so is yours. Is that kind of open source, to be modified by everyone who wants? I just wondered because I've seen this model a few times on the internet.
I think the third was entirely EA's own, though internal components and design elements were used from the Lariat (though I don't think anything that would be visible). The Lariat and his M22 are actually for all intents and purposes one and the same. The Lariat was a joint design between Coorsota and EA with myself drawing the original Lariat. EA, being a good artist himself, drew it as well to keep continuity with all of his other designs.
Yeah, that's what I thought; M22 and Lariat do look similar. You just get confused when you look through the net and see similar designs on several places: which one is original, which one altered, maybe just taken, without allowance?
Nice! playing nationstates myself, and i must say that this one of the sexiest tanks ive seen^^
love the chainsaw. wicked
How did you make it? It is so cool
Very nice MBT, like the auto cannon Coax. Excellent stuff AC7!
Looks like a crossing of M1A2 Abrams with TUSK and a Leopard 2A5 to me. Some kind of alternate reality universe you're creating?
