Military Vehicles

The military vehicles on this page were created for military clients in the use for defence simulation during my placement year. The goal was to create military vehicles requested by the clients which were not available in their content library on Virtual Battlespace 3 (VBS3).

This was my first time using VBS3 and the pipeline to creating all of the below content is as follows. Modelled in 3ds Max, textured and rigged in Oxygen 2, and then imported into VBS3.

Warthog

2 weeks to complete.

Followed blueprints and observation of real world vehicle available to me.

Animated all terrain tracked carrier vehicle.

Poly-count = 30,940    Tri-count = 65,370

S-Tank

A week and a half to complete.

Followed blueprints and observation of real world vehicle available to me.

Animated tank vehicle.

Poly-count = 16,691    Tri-count = 34,086

D-30 122mm Howitzer

3 days to complete.

Followed blueprints and observation of real world vehicle available to me.

Static object for VBS3.

Poly-count = 11,658    Tri-count = 24,020

Technology School

This fly-through is of a Technology School building I have constructed as a replica to its real life counterpart. It includes some of the vehicles on show that I have produced as well as objects within the building such as the flight simulator. All created for use in VBS3.

The building is interactive, the user being able to open doors and walk up stairs.

This was an ongoing project I would come back to over the course of my placement. The clients are pleased with the outcome for use in demonstrations.

AH-1F Cobra

2 weeks complete.

Followed blueprints and observation of real world vehicle available to me.

Static object for VBS3.

Poly-count = 10,834    Tri-count = 23,362

Ajax

A week to create main Ajax and another week to produce the rest of the variants.

No blueprints were available, only a pamphlet of the vehicle from perspective views. Assigned to model anew and greater collection of the variants compared to a previous student the client had got the models from.

Animated tank vehicles including crane on one of the variants.
