Hello and welcome to the second Conflict Earth:2142 media update.
We are happy to announce our newly formed partnership with the BattleField Advanced mod team. The BFA team and us will share coding as well as other content with eachother.
The Conflict Earth mod team would like to thank Battlefield Podcast for including our March 19th update in the BF Podcast episode 48. To view the segment with the Conflict Earth update, go to 11 minutes and 30 seconds into the podcast.
Now, for the important stuff: the images!
[CE-Dev] BlindShooter has been hard at work over the past couple weeks creating new models. Here are some of his WIP's he has created:
With a 2000 Horse power hydrogen engine and weighing in at 65 tons, this tank will definitely play a major role in many of the battles.
The tank's primary weapon is a 150 millimeter stabilized rail gun that can fire various types of warheads. The tank also features an automated active defense system that attempts to intercept and destroy any incoming projectiles. The tank also has a 12.7 mm heavy machine gun that can be operated from inside the tank.
Also by [CE-Dev] BlindShooter are these WIP's of the Alien Force's rifle:
(The following description is from recently declassified documents on the Department of Intelligence's analysis of weapons seized in a raid on a suspected alien force's weapons cache.)
Razor Assault Rifle (UWA Designation):
This weapon functions similar to the UWA assault rifle. It appears to be a Miniaturized particle accelerator for alien soldiers. The weapon seems to
be drawing energy from a replaceable power cell underneath the rifle. While the design of the rifle and the way it fires is much different than any UWA weapon, it is surprisingly simple and well constructed. Since the aliens and humans have similar physical features, the Razor is surprisingly easy for a human to handle and fire.
There is a magnetized barrel to hurl the round at high speeds towards the target. The Razor, as well as all of the other weapons taken from the cache, can be identified by the distinctive blue tracer rounds they fire. Once the round impacts on a hard target, it causes heavy damage, especially if the victim isn't wearing protective armor.
Although the accuracy of the Razor is similar to that of the UWA's primary assault rifle, it is a much more reliable weapon. Of all the tests conducted, the razor proved to be superior in terms of reliability, leading us to believe that this weapon is 100% jam proof.
The specifications for the Razor AR are as follows:
Construction: unknown alloy
Cartridge: 40 round energy cell
Rate of Fire: 700 rounds per minute
Effective range: 500 meters
trigger group: semi-auto, auto
One of the more interesting of BlindShooter's WIP's is the UWA Spider Tank.
The spider tank is very lightly armored recon vehicle, it's composite armor provided some protection against small arms fire but useless against medium caliber guns (20mm up) or anything bigger. (slightly better than ordinary jeep) It's armed with a 12.7 mm. gattling gun and 2-4 anti armor guided missile pod. It's sensors provides target information broadcasting to anyone around it's immediate radius.
It's leg features 4 ball bearing wheels that are electrically driven. the legs and the drives makes it a virtually silent and stable platform.
