The AROV-G12 (Armoured Rapid Occupation Vehicle) is a vehicle used to attack cities, outposts and other enemy facilities. It speeds up streets and roads, smashing through barricades and enemies with its armoured ram, while the G12 Gauss Cannon on the back blasts enemies away.
About this creation
This originally started out as an attempt to emulate the Warthog from the Halo series, but evolved into this heavily armoured cross between tank and a dune buggy.
The drivers side. You can see the steering wheel and (hopefully) the gearstick.
The passenger side. You can see al the dials and screens and possibly a control stick. Originally, it had an SAM turret on the back which was controlled from the passenger seat.
The Sarge, operating the turret. You can see the stick that he controls the turret with.
All the turret controls. Notice the screen that shows where the turret is aiming. For the Halo 3 player, you may recognise the Gauss turret from the ones you occasionally see Warthogs equipped with.
The winch on the back. Unfortunately, the hook was hanging loose when I uploaded the pictures. Usually it is hooked on the black bar that you can see above the winch. You can also see the radio antenna next to the bar.
The underside. I put the pipe there so the bottom wasn't entirely plain.
Without the turret. I actually quite like the way it looks without it. However, there is no suspension. I still haven't worked out how to do that yet. Do any of you have any suggestions? It would help if you offered some in a comment.
The driver, who you may or may not recognise from my S.N.O.T. Tree creation, has clumsily flipped the AROV over, so here he is flipping it back.
Back to normal!
