M1A1 Main Battle Tank




This isn’t actually new, I made it sometime around the end of August I think. Anyway it’s my latest and only battle tank that looks good and performs better.

The M1A1/M1A2 is currently America’s battle tank. It’s in use in the middle east, hence the desert camouflage.

My GMod version is a replica; it’s about 1:1 scale with the real thing and looks pretty nice, at least for Gmod. I could have made it more detailed but I wanted to keep it low-lag. It has nice looking fake treads and a total of 7 moving props, compared to most other tanks with 20+ moving props.

Performance is what this thing is built for. It moves at a decent speed and can accurately shoot at the same time, like the real one. Activate the turret by pressing F and moving the mouse. Press space for the gun camera, then scroll to zoom in and out. I bet you can figure out how to fire…

M256 120mm Anti Tank Cannon(GDC)
Coaxial M240 .30 caliber machine gun(GDC)
-I also have an attachable .50 caliber MG for a cupola gunner, but I won’t include it in this download.

Low lag
Accurate gyro stabilized gun
Limited gun rotation rate

The real thing has a crew of 4, but I figure a keyboard can replace 3 people; the only seat controls driving and gunning. The seat is located at the back of the right hole on top. It might be a little hard to find at first but look at the picture and get used to it!

Have fun, don’t claim it as your own, and go splode’ some people!

By the way you need GDC, Wire, and PHX3 to make this thing work! Put it in Addons or take out the dupe file and put in in Data. Get GDC here;
http://code.google.com/p/generic-defaults-combat/ - If you don’t want to download it for single player, you can find GDC on Nodex and Bergenbuild servers.
Make sure you have gcombat core and preferably GCX too.

Here’s the gmod.org download. If you don’t notice, it’s exactly the same as this page.

Thanks Gen, now I have a tank to test out the HIND missiles on.

Hot tnak u got thar.

Cool, but could use some more detail. It might just be that material that makes it look lacking though.

Nice. But can it do a barrelroll?

NICE! I always luv your work.

Could use some more details but it looks nice as it is now too :]

Looks a little bit angular in place, but I probably couldn’t do much better. It could also use a couple details, like railings and such. Maybe a fake MG here or there.

Overall, :bravo:

By the way, if anyone else gets an error for the SVN link, click on the link in the OP, then it takes you to a page with a link on it, THAT’s the one you use.

It seems too short. Other than that its great

I am officailly impressed. :v:

Ha, I remember kicking the shit out of this thing a while back.

rough rough edges

other than that, it’s sweet

The barrel looks a bit too fat, or the tank itself is too small for it, but still great :3

Boring materials. Other than that awesome.

Oh this… Yeah, like I said back then it has its issues with the aesthetic part. How well it functions I don’t know. Work on over all aesthetics, especially the treads and edges.

I do fancy however that the scale is correct.

Nothing happens when i press F, So i can’t move the turret part. :confused:

Update your wire?

Needs a better model. Then again, I myself am a horrible modeller. And I hate to say it, but your wire/contraptions is being used by a lot of noobs these days…not in a bad light but just that they are.

Needs a better model?.. :downs:

Blocky, and sloppily made, I mean anyone can see that it is an abrams, but I’d have put more effort into the actual model.
