Elite Siege Engine - The Übertank

This bundle is marked as director's cut. It meets all expectations and excels in every regard.

Team Green Quality presents...
Elite Siege Engine
The Fenrir-class siege engine has been developed by the Ironforge Engineer Corps during the aftermath of the Third War.
With the Troggs and Frostmane trolls all around Ironforge, it was dangerous for King Magni Bronzebeard to leave his city
without heavy guard, and a siege engine capable of incinerating ground targets was the perfect solution. The Fenrir-class
Siege Engine is a heavy support vehicle, often used as a commander on the front lines. Armed with a devastating 150mm
Pounder-class cannon capable of firing mortar shells to incredible distances as well as main combat anti-armor shells, a
deadly Dragonfire-class Flamethrower capable of burning ground targets 30 meters in front of the tank and armor-piercing
Gryphon-class anti-air auto-targeted barrage missiles, it truly is a beast on the battlefield.

Also known as the Übertank. The model was made for the first Paired Modeling\Texturing Contest here at the Hive, also known as 'TAGTEAM BITCHFEST 3000', by me and l0w_kwaliti. We entered under the team name 'Green Quality'.

HUGE thanks, of course, to l0w_kwaliti, for pretty much making this model real. Without his help it would be a complete and utter piece of crap. He helped me out a lot with the model during its creation, taught me a lot I didn't know about modeling and pretty much 'made the dream possible'. And of course, not to forget the über textures he's made for the model!

I'd also like to thank TurieL and his Rifleman Elite model for inspiring me in the first place, before I joined with l0w_kwaliti for the Paired Modeling\Texturing contest. I think his model is one of the best ones around. It's got it's own 'charm' while still being Warcraft 3-like.

The model contains a completely optional external portrait model, featuring the Tank's pilot, which contains a talking animation. You are in no way required to use this external portrait and its accompanying texture, 'EliteSiegeEnginePortrait.blp', as the model features an internal portrait featuring a slightly zoomed-out view on the tank itself. For those who wish to preserve a low file-size in their maps, it is recommended NOT to import "EliteSiegeEngine_Portrait.mdx" and "EliteSiegeEnginePortrait.blp". For those who still have plenty of file-size left to use, however, it is recommended to use the external portrait file as its quality is higher and it is more fitting for a hero unit.

Also included is a version without Hero Glow which can be used a unit rather than a hero. Decay and Dissipate animations are both included!

If you use this model, you must credit Kwaliti / l0w_kwaliti. I do not require credits, but it would be nice to include me in you credit list if you use this model. (However, crediting Kwaliti is a must). If you modify the model, please let me know in a PM! Do not modify the texture without Kwaliti's direct permission. Please do not upload this model on any other site.

Also! If you use this model in your project, be sure to also use one (or both) of these awesome icons made by Mr.Goblin:

Uber, Tank, Übertank, Über, Fenrir, Fenris, Wolf, Siege, Engine, Machine, Train, Snow, Dwarf, Dwarven, Assault, Combat, Heavy, Ironforge, Vehicle.

Very nice "clean" tank. By clean I mean feels very polished.

The graphics are too "clean" for warcraft, so this tank will surely stand out.
Also love the animations. Tank parts opening up and closing while a flamethrower
comes out and blasts everything.

IMO, 5/5 and a worthy DC.
