WW2 contest round 2 entry: T92 Howitzer Motor Carriage
Built for the WWII Vehicles, Ships, and Aircraft Contest under the category "digital"
About this creation
I designed this for the Jerry Temple's WW2 contest, round two

It's me versus killswitch 95 [DEMON]

About the T92:

The 240 mm Howitzer Motor Carriage T92 was a self-propelled howitzer developed by the United States of America during World War II. It never progressed to full production and introduction into service.
The 240 mm M1 howitzer was mounted on a slightly modified Heavy Tank T26E3 (which entered service as the "Heavy Tank M26 Pershing") chassis. An extra bogie wheel was fitted, to bring a total of seven.
A limited production run was ordered in March 1945, and the first test model was finished in July of that year. Total production of the T92 was five.
Limited numbers of both 240mm HMC T92s and 8in GMC T93s were going to be used in Operation Downfall, the planned invasion of the Japanese mainland. However, after the Japanese surrender on 14 August 1945, the T92s and T93s were not shipped to the Pacific Theater of Operations.

the real thing:


compare it to mine:
hey hey hey hey

The rear of the tank with the spade and breech and all that:
hey hey hey hey

Sorry for the lack of renders, but the deadline is tomorrow, so I don't really have the time. If there are any more renders they will be on my flickr photostream!

best of luck to my fellow contestants, and I hope you liked this design. Cheers!

Hey Alex, I first googled the howitzer. And then I looked closely at your excellent version. The chains and the structure are very well done, and the tube fits exactly to this version. At first I thought the tube is too thick, but it is authentic. As you can see on your Pasted image of the original. A true masterpiece.

Nekatere teksture in detajli manjkajo, ki bi lahko bili izvedeni z minimalnimi modifikacijami... Nekatere gladke dele bi moral narediti bolj "greeblaste".
