A fictional APC for the near future ground vehicle contest. It was designed with maximum ground clearance in mind, while still maintaining high mobility. It is equipped with a 40 mm main cannon and a 5.56 coaxial gun, and a forward mounted, rapid fire 100mm self propelled HEAT launcher, though it only has enough cargo room for 2 payloads of ammunition. It features nearly completely slanted armor on all sides, as well as an RPG cage mounted on the rear. It carries 5 men + 2 crew, though one of the passengers could control the turret.
On a more technical note, it uses 8 image textures applied to 14 materials. It is not rigged (as I had technical difficulties and ran out of time for the contest) though the limited number of moving parts should make rigging a simple task. The tank treads are applied to paths for easy animation as well.
