Updated and Edited the ZSU-57 shape... Lengthed the chassis a slight bit to better balance out the shape and altered the turret and lowered the guns some and corrected their length, and seperated the turret from the body of the vehicle to give it a moving turret...










I still have to work on the tracer shape to shorten it a bit, like I did for the aircraft cannons, but leave it the bright yellow to better represent the high speed shell...

Also I need to increase the size of the gun blast to more accurately model it...

This vehicle is like any other AAA site, you cant add it to a convoy and with the limitations of the FA I had to make the chassis always pointing so the turret can rotate around it...

So this vehicle cant be be setup as a moving vehicle uinless moving north(forward) or south(backing up) or it will drive sideways...

To be honest I am not sure it will drive at all, so I will have to do some quick testing on that and post back later on it...


CAG out...

Did some testing and yes it looks realeastic only when moving forwards (northernly) or in reverse (southernly). This presents a problem considering the North Koreans will be advancing southernly and this vehicle is used in missions moving like that, will look like its backing up the entire time! LMAO!

Here are few more shots of the gun vehicle engaging me while it was backing up as I approached it from the south east...




Shows the to large tracer very well... That will be the next bit of work, should only take a few minutes to complete...

I will post some more pics when I get that accomplished...

Yea for the 37/40/57mm I plan on adding an all new tracer shape, smaller then this bigger bullet, but bigger then the 20/30 mm shape now used on aircraft guns.

This looks great cag, but I have to agree you need a better bullet shape.

It looks good cag. Can you lighten up the skin a bit so it blends better wtih the snow to make it harder to find the target? Like you did with the abrams tank. Also can you add more detail to the cannons on this one as well?

CAG

Is it possible to have ship's turrets amd tank turrets rotate in FAF?
I don't know if it is doable, but it would be a WOW! Smile

I was asking if rotating turrets could be added to FAF tanks and ships.
I wanted to clear that up. I see that this turret is rotating.

I dont know if I am right in my guess, but I think you have missed alot of the previous posts cag made on adding rotating turrets to faf tanks. At least it sounds that way from your post. cag posted pictures of his new faf tanks in other threads. I woudl bet even money that is what viper pilot was talking about.

I do not know about ships though.

Pappy,

I have have posted in other threads there will be two types of tanks in FAF. Those with moving turrets (that have limited mobility) and those that have fixed turrets (but unlimited mobility) so that the user can fit all mission needs...

Ships are a bit more difficult as the turrets are not on the centerline like they are on the tanks, so it will be difficult to do it, plus only 1 turret can be made to rotate in this manner...

FA already has a ship shape with twin moving turrets, but they are just to fake looking to keep in FAF...
