I used as less custom props as possible resulting in the contraptions looking very Oldskool which I like very much.
I spent quite a few hours designing the cannons so they don’t look too simple but not too overengineered and laggy, I always try to get the best looks with the minimal amount of props. The only artillery piece which looks abit flimsy is the Duel 20mm but in practice is quite sturdy (depens on how duplicator wants to paste it).
Enough bullshit chit-chat let’s get to the pictures :excited:
Now for some closer looks
The Duel 20mm Flak 55
The pounderous 120mm Anti-Tank Cannon
The mighty 150mm Howitzer
The Duel 20mm
This is best suited as Anti-Air weapon mainly because of the great spread of the projectile
and high rate of fire. It’s fitted with an experimental Flak sight which is aligned to the field of vision of the seat.
Do not try to put the hostile aircraft in the middle of the crosshairs just keep them inside the block.
And also do not elevate the gun while firing or it will jump up and ruin your aim due to the great recoil of the duel 20mms.
Best use against hovering helicopters and slow flying planes.
It’s hard to hit because of the low speed of the shells and the slow rate of fire
but if you hit it will do damage to a plane in one way or another
It can probably even chew up light to medium armored targets if you
hit the right parts.
And also for this gun don’t try to elevate/depress the gun while firing
The 120mm AT gun
Highly precise and powerful. This is the best suited weapon to destroy heavily armored ground targets.
For a perfect aim simply spawn a CSS weapon (I recommend Desert Eagle) and press the key 1 on your numpad for camera view.
This cannon can destroy the most props with one single shot
There isn’t very much more to say about this gun exept that it is my favourite of the bunch
The 150mm Howitzer
Highly powerful and very large blastradius and a high arc.
Always hide behind things that are taller than the cannon (for instance the small freespace pyramids)
This cannon will probably destroy every contraption with a well
the only problem is that it takes long to get the right elevation for the gun
