A43 Rev. II Medium Tank [Graphic|Coloured]
A very flat colour scheme on this one, with a barrel-spoofing camouflage scheme to help obscure the true length of its (uprated) gun. If you think it looks a bit like a Comet tank, that's most certainly on purpose. Comments, feedback, suggestions are as always very earnestly welcomed!

Now that I've coloured all the main variants of the tank, perhaps a Jagdpanzer adaptation is in order? Stablock below:

A46 Rev. III Medium Tank [Graphic|Coloured]
Finally got around to colouring this - and with a rather unorthodox camouflage scheme at that! A very French style oscillating turret on a medium tank hull, with a bustle autoloader and a 92mm gun. Do leave your comments and impressions here - would love to know what folks think!

MA11 MAV(T) SHORADS-G [Coloured]
The SPAAG variant of the MA11 family, packing a 70mm CTA autocannon capable of reaching out to 8km with unguided munitions against attack helicopters and high velocity boosted missiles with an engagement range out to 20km, coupled with an AESA search radar and an AESA tracking array. The primary objective of the vehicle is to provide Anemonian ground forces with the capability to overmatch the engagement range of attack helicopters, swatting them out of the sky before they have the opportunity to fire off guided missiles. Paired in service with the SHORADS-M, which is essentially a Tor-alike TELAR that provides short range missile coverage against highly manoeuvrable targets in the short range air defence envelope (and hopefully the next thing I'll be working on).

Hopefully the hiatus until my next upload won't be as long as the one between this and the last... ;)

Comments are very welcome and much appreciated, as always!

Well, I was flippant when this page reached the 10,000 views mark, but 15,000? I can't be anything other than flattered. I put all this time into doing all this lineart, and while I do enjoy it - and its products - it can be an intensely frustrating experience at times. To be able to come back to a site like this and see people liking the work I do, or committing to being bombarded with notifications every time I put up yet more pixels, or even putting up a few words commenting on the images (which I love, please keep them coming!) - well, it very nearly goes ahead and makes the whole damn thing worthwhile. So for that, I thank anybody who may be passing through this thread - as the collaborators and co-artists who, for better or for worse, keep this operation well oiled and moving forwards.

As of next week, I'll have a job for the summer period, and after that I'll be buried (yes, it has been that long since I started this page, for those who've been here since the beginning!) under postgraduate applications - but hopefully, I'll be able to keep up my current linearting spurt with your support. Feel free (and please do) to leave words, or comments, or verse or prose or whatever strikes your fancy if you have anything you might have to say either about a specific piece of work or things in general (I'm a decent conversationist, for the record) - and thank you, again, for being a pretty wonderful bunch of people all around.

Any chance of a Mc.82 with load out?

Actually possible. Let me look into it.

Or a sheet of missiles. Or both. How about the various loadouts for the various mission profiles.

Any new ideas for Anemos Major? MA9A3. mA11 and ht9a8 are not for sale?

Hey! Didn't know people still looked at this page.

- MA11 isn't done yet, and I haven't really found the time to continue with it.
- MA9A3 is similarly WiP.
- For all intents and purposes I've abandoned the HT9A8, I just haven't considered what I'd replace it with.

Hope all's well!

Well I do look at this page.
-Keep up the designs and HM Armed Forces of the Kingdom of Mcnernia will be a willing launch customer.
-The same for the MA9A3
-And keep,it around, best option for a G-5 tank.
