Bishop-2A1 by MrJumpManV4 Bishop-2A1 by MrJumpManV4
The Bishop-2A1, an upgraded version of the Apostle tank, preceded by the Bishop 1A7.
Things i changed include (but are not limited to) new ammoboxes in the back which holds guns and ammo for troops exiting/entering the tank, rearranged interior setup (increased detail of the interior as well), W16 engine (included as an actual detail), a smoothbore 180mm cannon instead of the 181mm rifled cannon, a newer 25mm autocannon, reduced amount of smoke grenade dishchargers, frontal visors for driver view (included as a detail).
unfortunately this model will not be availiable for download upon request as it will be in an upcoming videogame which you can find here [link].
any questions, comments, critiques are welcome, but please be nice, i'm quite sensative when it comes to my art Xp

i may make a 360 animation of this, dunno though.

things to note:
the gattling guns are capable of being autonamous, as an APS and are optionally controlled by any of the crew or operators. there is also a coaxial 7.62 rotary gun that is not visible on the underside of the gun (at least it's hard to see). the ammoboxes are also currently open, they are capable of closing while in motion. unfortunately the W16 engine does not connect to the drive sprocket thing, however the W16 is quite detailed, it even has pistons and what not.

this is the previous version of the Bishop and it is illustrated quite a bit better than this one. [link]

never thought a tank could have a '69 Charger's rear tail lights

heheh, i suppose they do look similar, although mine are a bit more blocky.

Great job, great design, looks
Will you release additional information, like fuel comsumption, power of the cannon(muzzle velocity, accuracy,penetration at 2000m) and things like that?
And I noticed that warning, so I'll keep my mouth shut this time, as I tend to forget such things while writing xD
And that game... I love RTS and I love the Bishop, so I'll play it. What about you? I'd love to play with/against you.

This should answer some of your questions
i didn't go into so much detail about the main gun with all the specs because i haven't researched into that field of tankology yet Xp
i can tell you it has a rotary trple shot magnum type magazine similar to an autoloader. the barrel is relatively short, about the same length as that of a modern MBT but considering it's a 180mm barrel i think it may not be as accurate, not too sure about this though.
Thanks for the comment! be sure to check out the link i included.

Engine looks small as fuck. [link]

Thats the engine of a leopard II. Notice how it takes up the whole back end of the tank? No offence but it looks like theres a engine from a truck or something in there, it probably wouldnt even move.

however i do agree with you, keep in mind the exhaust parts are in the back of the tank which account for quite a bit of space.

There is also the factor for advancing technologies. Smaller engines growing more and more powerful.
