Giving in once again to my GADD (Gamer's ADD) disorder, I spent a few hours this weekend making up a sci-fi homage to the vaunted German 88mm AA/AT gun (known variously as Flak 41, Pak 18, or "Oh, crap! It's a --"). I've always loved the predatory look of the 88, especially when mounted on the cruciform mount rather than a wheeled carriage. To that end, here is a sci-fi version with choice of six different barrels. I don't know what each of them shoots, but I'm sure it's some combination of particles, kinetics, plasmas, rayses, and quantums.
As you can see above, the parts list consists of the six barrels, the fire-direction radar dish, the main body, the ground mount, and three outrigger legs. I thought about making the frag shield a separate piece; might still do that, depending on feedback.
Here is Barrel A:
Here you can see the gunner's control terminal:
Barrel B, because nothing screams "sci-fi" like a ribbed gun tube:
Barrel C; this is one of my favorites, and was heavily inspired by the deck guns seen during the final attack on the first Death Star:
Barrel D; meant to be a plasma-gun-looking-thing, I think it turned out to be less than stellar. For some reason, it just doesn't seem to feel right.
Barrel F; another favorite of mine, with its large, Barrett M82-inspired muzzle brake:
I'm still pondering what other barrels or accessories I might whip up for this thing. Maybe some kind of microwave weapon or something.
