Ursa Major - Super Heavy Tank

Submitted by General Frank
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Description
The Ursa Major is the crown of super-heavy tank development of the United Federal Territories. The Ursa Major, or internally named the X3, was spawned by the successful deployment and testing of the Kodiak Super Heavy Tank.

The Tank is equipped with the heaviest, most expensive and most modern armament seen in the battalions of the UFT. Ursa Major packs two super-heavy 155mm high velocity cannons with armour piercing shells, a twin linked pair of heavy barrage rocket pods and the newly developed fuel ejection system, primarily a heavy twin flame-thrower. The chassis of the tank is plated with the best composite armour plating available to the UFT. Being designed as a highly versatile super-heavy tank, two subsystems can me mounted on the two pods on the turret. Due to the new fusion engines the tank can reach very high speeds for a super-heavy class tank. The tank also features some of the best subsystems available in the galaxy, laser-guides, multi-purpose radar and diction systems and high intensity lights being only few of them.

In case of possible critical damage the tank will leave a wreckage, which can, due to the high integrity of the tank's hull, be totally repaired and recovered.


In the following pack you can find more goodies associated with the tank:

    DonDustin: added rating. 1 of the best Tank models I have seen so far. The mesh is outstanding and the textures fit very well. One might argue that it is just another tank which overuses the tinker tank texture, but you simply have to see it from another perspective: this way it fits perfectly to the rest of GF's tanks and it is almost like a trademark for his vehicles.
    Additionally I really like the effects(the dissipate effect is just brilliant)

    I am completely lost for words.
    This is like, the degree of awesomness where you can't get excited or shout something as a comment, just sit there and stare like a dumbass.

    My only complaint is that some of the animations are a bit stiff. The walk animation looks great, it has a really RC-like feel to it, and the spinny tumbling stuff at the back is just gorgeous(!), but the Death anim looks really motionless and unrealistic, and the stand - 3 aswell as the flamethrower anim could use some movement.

    As for the latter, you could make a short jagg at the end, like: it goes a milimeter too far, then snaps back (and alternately, it could go to far back even then and then return). I have a model that uses just that kind of animation incase you want to see what i mean. It gives realistic motion at the same time as it looks mechanical and robotic.

    Other than that.. just incredible work. Your imagination and creativity in using warcraft textures is truly beyond limits

    I like geometry, the tank looks awesome.
    However, if the animation stand - 2 "to make a slower and smoother rotation turret, it will look more realistic I think.
    PS: no more comments, all made with high quality.

    Excellent!

    This is one of the best tanks that I have seen on the Hiveworkshop. Additionally, the name fits it well. Ursa Major is a massive constellation, and this is a massive tank. Great job model editing, and great job with providing it a represenative name.
