Hey, i'm kevin. 18-year old student moving off to college here in a bit. I'm a self-styled concept artist and love to draw. 99% of my drawings are done in the classroom; how i keep the grades up is a wonder to me. But i just found i had a gift and when an idea came to mind...i had to put it on paper. Sometimes my hands just start drawing and my mind doesn't even know what they're doing until its all finished...seriously, its weird. But outside drawing i write novels, play football where i'm a 2nd Team All-State Offensive Lineman and moonlighting Running back, and i throw discus in Track. I know some of my drawings are repetative in ways but i'm working on that. I'm trying to put up more and more art on my page and would really REALLY appreciate feedback on them, the more comments the better my future drawings can be.

MAYBE...just for kicks and giggles, put in the Maus, but i don't think it'd fit them very well. The tank destroyers on the hand fit the idea of ambushing that i love about the GLA so much, while the Tigers aid in the aspect of assault i adore the GLA for.

Sure the MG42 spits lead and is an infantry killer, but against armor its not as effective while the M2 Browning could chew up infantry and put a sizable dent in any light-medium armor.

It pivots on a large hinge and then is magnetically sealed by internal mechanisms. The barrel is sealed completely as to not effect its firing process or anything. This also makes it more compact so that more of these vehicles can be transported in aircraft. It also works to make the Crusader easier to navigate through urban terrain to its firing position. I thought it would be a cool inovation. :/

The diagram on the top right shows the Panther's dual AIM-90 missile launcher. It is fitted into the tank's turret just to the left of the right of the cannon. And the images below that show the break down of the AIM-90 "Hornet" missile. The missile itself is intended for the anti-infantry role and is pretty much a container for a rack of 16 Tungsten needles. Sorta like a big shotgun shell, only a lot more painful. The diagram on the top left shows the firing of the missile itself and the process of it. The bottum left diagram shows the breakdown of the Panther's armor. (From inside to outside/right to left): Titanium/Steel Alloy, Kerak Absorbing Gel Layer, Explosive Reactive Armor Plating.

Again, sorry for the small writing...its just what i do. :P
