Everything from scratch except:
Textures from Blizzard. Dwarf Model by Blizzard.
Most of the death explosion particles are a modified combination of WILLTHEALMIGHTY's nuke, and anarchianbedlam's PUMA(flares).

Thx to Blinkboy for the great animation tutorial.
Thx also to all the modelers who made the great tank and explosion type models, I've looked over many of them and studied them.

MORE IMAGES! AND A TEST MAP!:

    One second... 43berries said that a train with such a cannon cannot shoot? well... wait a second...

    Its a massive iron thingy right? like a tank? and.... wait... the tiger tank.... couldnt he shoot while driving? because... this thing in real would be bigger and heavier as a tiger tank... so I guess he can hold it, he may have a big backdraft, but whatever.

    Only thing I dont like is its lack ummm...flexibilty...

    Its a 20/5 dont get me wrong.

    But from my point of view, for all of its destructive awsumness, it will always be a tank with a bigass gun that drives side ways. LOL

    I know. It does what it's meant to do. A rail tank, is a tank that glides back and forth on rails gaurding somthing. I know the flexability is bad. That is whats keeping it from perfection.

    Coming soon to a hive near you!

    Should be done in about HEY! Its already done. Progress has been very slow because I have my new badass computer now, and I'm playing it all the time.

    I'm making a test map that demonstrates how it could be set up in the game. In the test I will make use of all its weapons through custom abilitys.

    one question; how would i get this tank to move along the rails sideways (without turning around, to keep the wheels along the tracks)?

    i decided to use this model in a city like map, and i want this to move along some rails and shoot certan points when it reaches them, any help?

    In the first page of this thread there is a link in the models description that links to a test map of this model. Its called "The Last Stand" In the map it has it set up on rails and everything. Look at the triggers and play the map. Of course it will take a lot of work to set it up.

    And that death animation... im speechless
