VDS Medium Adaptable Artillery Truck
VDS now presents its next hard-hitter, the Medium Adaptable Artillery Truck. The MAAT is a 155mm mobile artillery cannon on a light, fuel-efficient truck chassis. The MAAT can reach a top speed of roughly 84 kilometers an hour on flat terrain or 32 to 55 kilometers on more rugged terrain. Once the vehicle gets to a designated area of set-up, the vehicle can unload and unleash its payload of 22 155mm GPS-guided smart munitions. Once these rounds are dispensed, ammunition support units can reload the truck to continue firing. In regards to the crew, the minimum number is four. One driver/communications technician, a commanding officer, one munitions technician, and a firing chief. An additional passenger may be carried and will generally support the role as a forward scout. MATTs always travel in convoys of four with three support vehicles that contain at least one command H-MMCT/ CV. Later additions to this vehicle will lead to a MLRS HIMARS capable of carry two cruise missiles or a payload of equal weight.
About this creation








The MATT deployed with attending crew.

Size comparison with technician and a "Vigilante" Guided Artillery Munition (GAM).





Note: These pictures make me really sad, but I had to get 'um done. Expect better ones in a day or two.

Note: Much inspiration came from the Caesar artillery system.

Wow, this is stunning. I know this is for a specific group, but you might want to spread it around a bit.

Excellent! As I sad over on FlickR, this is an impressive creation, and the turret with its extension is especially cool and massive.

This is one of your best ground creations. I like the seats being used as wheel wells.

I've gotta get/make me one of these! This is so great! You've always had great parts usage, and really realistic designs in all of your builds. Nothing short of 'wow' on this end of the net.

Quoting Grand Admiral Darren . Very nice. You captured the "truck" look very well. Not sure about that orange light piece.
Haha. I'm a bit iffy on it too, but safety first. I figured with contemporary combat being integrated into more populated area, a safety light would reduce the need for excessive honking in the streets and provide more reaction time for the civvies. Anyhow, thanks for the compliment.

Quoting Jack Ford Awesome! My only gripe is in the cone on the barrel. I'd take it off, so the caliber would be bigger. Awesome truck!
Yeah. I couldn't really make an accurate muzzle-brake unfortunately. Oh well. Future upgrading is on the drawing board, as always. In any case, many thanks for the compliment.
