I wanted to make something other than a mech in the Dawn Forge theme and this is the result. The EVOLUTION is the next generation of artillery vehicles. Extremely rugged with superior suspension and ground clearance, 6 wheel drive, and the latest targeting and navigation systems, the EVOLUTION can operate in areas unreachable by standard artillery. The tremendous velocity of it's railgun (described below) gives it astounding bombardment range as well as surgically accurate "line of sight" direct fire capability. Well armored like all Dawn Forge assets, it's respectible top speed (compared to other artillery) and robust communications array allows it a secondary function as a recon unit.
As always, thanks for looking.
That little ladder you see in there (you do see it...right?) is how they get in.
The second generation of light railguns, this still fires a 3kg tungstun rod using a discarding sabot but the veolcity has been upped from 4km per second to 6 km per second raising the muzzle energy from 24 megajoules to 54 megajoules. The lightweight and inert ammo allow for fast one man reloading of the railgun's 18 round magazine. Used primarily for defense the machine gun fires a 10mm AP round for both anti-personnel and light anti-armor capabilities.
Awkward cockpit pic. Oooo...red leather trim AND dual cupholders!
"Soo...Smilin' Jim is it? Let me get this straight. The only way to get air-conditioning in this thing is to buy the 2.4 million dollar deluxe railgun option package?"
Dude... What... Holy (insert obscenities here). There isn't really much to say, but i have a few questions. what's with the weird orange streak down the front of the vehicle? This makes the vehicle stand out, but it makes it somewhat different from the rest of the Dawn Forge things. Now, i know this comment will probably cause eruptions of boos but in my view it is true. also, what is with you and hoses? of every single one of your creations i spy a hose or a comment about a hose. Great job nonetheless. ;-)
This is definitely my second favorite of your creations, my favorite being the Unity Combat Droid. I actually think this is more interesting to look at, but: 1) The droid has ingenious legs and 2) The droid is just so small to be so awesome!
Although not a walker I must say this is almost my favourite of all your dawn forge creations. The design of it is just so perfect, cool and so fitting to the design of the dawn forge. And the buildings skills in this moc just smashes me in the face, it is so good.
dang! very impressive! i love how you did the wheel guards. ps: check out my merciless class mech. the giant railgun was the mocs focus, the mech was just a vessel. anywayz, id like to see what you would do with that railgun. so try to make an awesome mech using it. do you accept the challenge?
This is cool. I really like the qua... six wheel steer. I feel that you could have done better with the rail gun though, it seems incomplete. But, it is good and has all of the characteristics I've come to expect from you.
WOW brian this si cool i absolutley love the railgun this looks like a very playable moc it looks like it has great manuverability i like it alot you should make another, it would look great beside one of you chicken walker mechs
AWESOME! I love the design and the color scheme. I liked how you used blay and red instead of the typical black and red. I was wondering if I could borrow your design for my APC that I'm making in LDD. I WILL give you credit!
It aint good 'nuff! Lol, actually this is awesome, I love the use of color coordinated snot (say that to a random dude on the street, lol!), in fact i would almost have to say that your vehicle building skills have increased! I love your style man...in fact I may have been inspired by your abstractness and built a new halo 3 MOC...and a new (and my last) Warthog design, if your interested in checking out the multi page display;)
I'm sorry I didn't catch this one sooner. So, my review. Okay, how can I say this...let's see...oh, yes...STINKIN' BRILLIANT! You have some of the finest "economy of bricks" I've ever encountered...no wasted pieces...every one is perfect for it's purpose. The sign of a truly great builder. Another beautiful little creation.
There is something special about red leather trim…You need to build three or four more dawn forge creations before I will consider you as the best of the best lego builders, or at the least one of the best. You realize the next model needs to be a VTOL craft? “Execution” class… Fantastically fantastic work! Alex. PS - Contrary to what I said about the Schism class mech the glass cockpit works very nicely here.
You have out done yourself, again! Another fine job, I love your color, the arangements of the men,(seating wise), and the huge gun on the back. I also like the placement of the tires. Fantastic job.
I like it

Amazing! And with the option package, you also get a free extra railgun, so that you'll never have to stop shooting? (unless you run out of ammo of course)I want that... One thing though, that gunner on the left is not very safe from counterfire.
i strongly admire your style and techinque ... this is obviously ur best dawn forge creation yet even if your mechs take it to the next level, this way more awesome!...
The design is original yet realistic and the technique is inventive ...i loove the way u did the headlights and the mudguards are really nice too
Preliminary market research indicates that the name "Dawn Forge" may not be ostentatious enough. Please have five ostentatiouser names on the Marketing VP's desk by 2 o'clock Monday. Also, I have it on good authority that Bob from accounting is embezzling company funds. Consider hiring a proper yellow replacement. I've always said you can't trust those peachers...
