    IIRC the turret has its won scale factor in the script sheet, so you can change things around at any time.

    Please don't use puu.sh as an image host. It won't even load the image for me.

    Got a rudimentary version in game, apart from issues with cannon and turret positioning, it seems to work fine.

    looks great! Looking at the LT I think you could get away with making it a little bit bigger and than go on making a heavy that is just a tad smaller than the NF CV. Imagine driving tanks like that ^^

    It seems a bit large to me. Perhaps its just the perspective of those pictures though...

    place it right next to a light and take pic from the front looking at them from a handful of steps away as perpendicularly straight as possible and from the top. dont do angles but try to get it as straight as possible this will give a better view of things

    besides scale i think it looks awesome, cool 'snowleopard' camo ;)

    Or you could just look at the pictures he already took for size comparison. In an application that actually has an orthographic view mode. He could to the same with all of the other tank models if you really want to compare everything.

    Well the size is okay. None of these tanks has a realistic size, not even NF heavy.

    However, I do get the "Light Tank" feel from looking at it. Light tank as in an actual light tank not the NF LT. I mean, It doesn't look like a MBT yet, maybe because no textures idk, or maybe the barrel size.

    I think it's mainly the barrel length, not the size.

    I have to ask why protrusion in turret is not behind cannon? It should be there to accommodate main gun's recoiling parts and autoloader.

    @Mechanic Could be internal, especially if it's unmanned. I'm not sure I can see a bore evacuator. If it is indeed a bore evacuator what I'm seeing, then it's small and could still suggest that it's an unmanned turret.

    Ranger, i didnt understand your comment. "Bore evacuator" - is it a mechanism for removing empty shell casings from turret?
    I thought all vehicles in Empires have unmanned turrets because loader can't manage to reload guns so fast manually and one player can control vehicle movement and shooting at same time.
    Look at top view: there is large compartment behind circular hatch (not a bad thing - maybe there is radio or something), but no space for cannon to recoil.
