This could be a good one to replace the Striker the U.S. Military now uses. I'm guessing at the bottom those things can be used for covering the soldiers from gunfire. And that the glass is bullet proof?
I love the idea, but I agree that the drivers compartment is far too vulnerable. The same result could be achieved via cameras with a proper armoured prow, bulletproof glass might be fantastic but I wouldn't want to be hit with an IED or an RPG-9 round if I was sitting behind it.
and if you have ever driven with only your periscopes and cameras you know instantly why large bay windows like that are very much liked, and hell, look at the engineer bull dozers and such that they use to clear routes
Very good work ! Very pro. It also could be a scientific vehicle full of measuring equipments and cameras. I've designed similar rovers for exploration of Mars, also on Sketchup. I love the look of your cockpit !
Cool concept man, I love the design. The only thing I'd change though would be replace the tires with mud treads. Make this amphibious and you'll have the military recruiting you for vehicle design. lol
