M600 WildFist APC
After the recent events on the planet officially known as LV-426, it became obvious that our Colonial Marines did not have access to superior firepower. Before their M577 APC got destroyed in the thermonuclear blast, it recorded and transmitted useful data back to the USS Sulaco and got stored for us to find. At the time of that discovery the whole team of Marines and joining passengers, including Lieutenant E. Ripley, had been declared both KIA and LIA by our Salvage Operations Board. Now after 2 years of development and demanding trials it’s time to unveil the superior successor to the M577 APC. Each upgrade is based on the analyzed data retrieved during the salvage operation that were commissioned to find the abandoned USS Sulaco. In order to fight the Xenomorphs more efficiently this was and is a necessary step. Since the catastrophic events at the Hadley’s Hope colony, the Weyland-Yutani Company has lost their entire claim on LV-426. The planet is now under complete military jurisdiction and off limits due to the many Xenomorph’s that survived the destruction of Hadley´s Hope. These are now being tracked and terminated by the A-CM (Aliens – Colonial Marines). Here follows a brief introduction to the new M600 WildFist APC, currently in service. My name is Corporal D. Benson, and I´m an active grunt on the LV-426.
About this creation


The M600 consists of 1952 parts, are 66 studs long and 28 studs wide.



Apart from the M577 the M600 got angled wheelarches more efficent at protecting the newly designed offroad tires. The tires were directly taken from the UniMog truck.



Due to complications with the main gun railing system the whole concept had to be reworked. As the analyze showed the main gun were never used because the railing system broke down when the APC crashed through a wall inside the atmospheric processing plant. This played a big part in the disadvantage the Marines had when fighting their way out of the complex. The new main gun system shortly follows.



The old APC cockpit had a very limited FOV which complicated the vehicle control. Onboard sensors registered a lot of jerky steering with to much drifting as a result of this. This was solved with a centered windscreen. Above the windscreen two pyramid-shaped action-cams were fitted permitting the driver full 3D-vision of the road ahead. The weaponery were upgraded with two 8-barreled Exterminator 160 turrets.



At this angle you see how well the new wheelarch protects the rear wheels. Right above the backwheel you also see one of the four new anchor points used for quick airtransport of the battlefield without entering the dropship.



And now...the new main gun system. Instead of fragile rails to the back of the APC, this system is driven by hydraulic actuators. The turret is stored inside the outer shell which makes it a lot more well-protected both from enemy attacks and keeping it out of mud and debris. As with the old turret this has a 360 degree of rotation. To up the firepower, twin 6-barreled 60mm Gatling guns were chosen to replace the ALM (Automatic Light Mortar). In combat the twin gatling guns also are easier to repair.



With state of the badass art optic sensors the aiming is greatly improved.



With these formidable weapons all pointed at your enemy you can easily challenge even the Alien Queen without any problem. But you still hope you won´t have to!



Behind the two service hatches you find the hydraulic system controls.



As a result of the new main gun system the back of the M600 has resulted in a very clean and sturdy design. The new exhaust system is called TwinSkull and increases the available WEP (War Emergency Power) with up to 50 %. It goes fast as hell!



This final pic concludes my introduction of the new M600 WildFist APC.

And yes, when I get some spare-time over from the fighting I will build it for real with bricks! You are now free to comment on this creation and make my fellow grunts motivated enough to continue the war on the Xenomorph infestation!

Quoting tomi mrav its awsome..realy like it..just..i want to know one thing..where is building instruction? lol btw-some random toughts:it does have doors,cuz i dont see any?!and dont u think rear wheeles are to uncoverd?
The building instructions will become available when I post the real build. It does have a functional door on the right side, but because of the special rail fitting I can´t show it working on the digital build. Sure the rear wheels are uncovered but that´s a part of the lightweight design. Speed and flexibility are more important.

The retracting cannons are excellent. If it isn't the car from Aliens it's a close cousin.
