Revel in it's shinyness and uncompletedness, for now I presenteth a WIP render of the craft cannon! Well, more of an autocannon. It's not exactly "to scale" and could easily be shrunk/resized as needed.
And a little.. CTD, to fit the actual design;
X-Corps Technology Report, DR-15 "Renegade" Craft Autocannon;
Munitions; Depleted Uranium-tipped high-cal armour-piercing high-explosive rounds.
The DR-15, or as it's better known, "Renegade", Man-Portable Autocannon, has proven to be especially effect against many targets. Instead of being a subtle two-handed, man-carried dealie, the Renegade was redesigned specifically for X-Corps. Using a specially designed body unit and feeder, the Renegade provides heavy automatic chaingun fire with it's six rotary barrels and constant ammo feed. It's fire rate is fully continous, ie, automatic, and rips weak organic targets apart in seconds. This is especially lethal against earth aircraft and organic objects, and field tests prove that it is, currently, useless against UFOs. The same cannot be said for the alien life forms - suffice to say, if the soldier can hold it still long enough, any aliens within range (and any civilians) are going to be plastered all over the opposite wall and floors.
X-Corps Soldier Interview; Gunther Heinrich
"At first, when I saw the Renegade, I thought "hey, what a piece of oversized junk!". That all changed when we saw the first alien in that combat. Sure, firing the damn thing nearly took my arm off, but hey, what was left of the bugger was plastered over a 6ft area on the wall opposite."
Field "tests" have shown that, whilst not useless, the Renegade inflicts low damage against the UFOs. It is, however, an effecient craft backup, should it run out of missiles.
EDIT: 2217 polys, without being tidied up. The actual amount for that screenshot is about 4434, as there are two on it. A lot of polys could easily be removed, such as ones buried/hidden in other parts of the model. Doing that could maybe drop it by anywhere from 100 to 400, I have -no- idea.
