The year is 2055, more than thirty years after the events of Zero Hour, Earth suffers a catastrophic collision with meteorites. The world is thrown into turmoil as large swathes of land are annihilated. Four factions, the ADF (Asian Democratic Federation), WEA (West European Alliance), WLF (World Liberation Front), and AC (American Confederacy) are at war for control of the remaining already harder to find resources as well as the preservation of their nations and geopolitical interests. Welcome to Deep Impact.

Infantry Update 1

Hello once again, and welcome to another DI update. This update is all something that I've been trying to avoid for as long as possible due to it being a total pain in the ass to do: New Infantry Models! W00t! So without further ado, let's get on with the update!

WEA Legionaire

Named in reference to the members of the feared ancient Roman legions as well as due to their intensive training with the Foreign Legion, the Legionnaires hold up to their name. They are the basic infantry of the WEA and are most commonly armed with light machine guns linked to their integrated HUD systems (hailing from past European combat systems such as the F√ČLIN), which they can effortlessly wield due to their armoured exo-suit. Additionally, in urban battles and when their commander sees fit, Legionnaires can be issued grenade launchers with incendiary grenades to effectively damage and clear buildings. Additionally they are equipped state of the art military grade laptops, that allow them to hack into and capture enemy structures.

WEA Phalanx

WEA Railgun technology has seen many breakthroughs in recent years, and their most recent breakthrough places this technology directly in the hands of their infantry. When WEA High Command demanded updated dedicated anti-tank weaponry, many came to showcase their designs, but ZTech took the cake with their portable rail-rifle concept. After refining the railgun to be as light and cheap as possible, the so-called "Railrifle X-4" was introduced to the grunts of the WEA AT division in 2043, and thus the Phalanx was born. The technology advancements of the Phalanx don't just stop at their weapon, their battlesuits are an advanced project by the Cynopolies Nano-Engineering division, developed as an alternative to exosuits. Equipped with special nano-fibers capable of augmenting the trooper's physical strength, it allows them to carry the still relatively heavy railrifle, without the bothersome feeling normally associated with wearing an exosuit. In addition, the Nano-fiber cape they wear is designed to act as a shield against shell explosions and shrapnel, giving Phalanxes a far greater survivability against tank gun fire then regular grunts. While their hooded appearance and long rifles makes them look like snipers, Phalanx soldiers lack the marksmanship training making them ineffective against infantry and aircraft.

WEA Lancer

As aircraft become more and more advanced, so do the weapons built to eliminate these "pests of the sky". The Lancer Missile System is the latest "man-portable sam site" developed by the WEA. After going through a few failed prototypes, including AA photon cannons, Ztech enginners stuck with a design made up of an oversized missile fired from a simple shoulder mounted launcher coupled with an advanced miniature radar and targeting system worn like a backpack. As usual, WEA infantry exo-suits allow the "Lancers", as they've been called, to carry these monsters and their ammunition with ease, and the explosives packed into one Lancer missile offer quite an explosive punch against aircraft.

Well that's all we have for this update.

Fantastic news, great infantry model design, i really like how you put details into accesories and helmets of Legionaire and Lancer, they look awesome. Phalanx looks a bit too low poly though, maybe you can spare more polygons onto it, maybe into gun or body armor, maybe change head design a bit.

Keep up great work :3

As I said in the forums: "I thought about that too, however most of the Phalanx, especially his face, is covered by his cape majority of the time, so adding any more details would be pointless."

Fleshy!
That SAM launcher reminds me of Valkyria Chronicle's rocket and mortar lances.
