RedLine Empire RE-PT14 Tarantula APC
DA3 CATEGORY 4: APC
About this creation
We are RedLine Empire. Our engineers have designed this mechanized beast, dubbed the "Tarantula." An 8-wheeled Personnel Transport monstrosity, we roll into battle, and usually over the enemy's APCs. Armed with a dual rail gun, and with a flak cannon for defence, this has the power of a tank. With people in it. But with wheels. And doors.

CATEGORY 4: Mechanized Infantry Squad (MILPO)

Mechanized infantry is distinguished from motorized infantry in that its vehicles provide a degree of protection from hostile fire, as opposed to "soft-skinned" wheeled vehicles (trucks or jeeps) for motorized infantry. Most APCs and are fully tracked or are all-wheel drive vehicles (6◊6 or 8◊8), for mobility across rough ground.

The Mechanized Infantry category is REQUIRED in order to claim a starting territory, along with the National Flag. If you do not have an approved Mechanized Infantry link on your ORBAT list, you may NOT participate in any attack window.

Your Mechanized Infantry Squad MOC must comply with the following 4 SPECs:

1. Your Mechanized Infantry Squad requires 6 soldiers for the squad, a driver and a gunner. The minifigs can be any style (alien, undead, robot, human, etc.) and they must be identified in your write-up.

2. Your Mechanized Infantry Squad must include an Armored Personnel Carrier that is capable of carrying all 8 minifigs mentioned in SPEC #1. You must include at least once photo of all 8 minifigs in the vehicle in your posting.

3. Your Mechanized Infantry APC may be wheeled or tracked. If you choose wheeled you must have a minimum of 6 wheels. You must also include either a spare-tire or a spare length of track (length determined by the player) attached somewhere on the APC.

4. Your Mechanized Infantry APC must include a machine gun turret for the the gunner minifig to operate, and you must show the weapon in at least 2 positions.


All good APCs come fully equipped with turrets, spare tires, and menace.


Shamelessly pilfering a wheel and arch design made famous by the Colonial Liberation Corps, we decided that black was more suitable. With a red stripe. Like our flag. We know branding.


Spare tire tucks neatly between wheel groups.


All hatches buttoned up, ready to go.


The Rear and side hatches open with the deployment ramp, well, deployed.


All personnel fit comfortably inside.


The personnel from left to right:
Cpl Friday, LCpl Jones, APC Pilot CWO2 Edwards, Gunner SSgt Stevenson, Capt Schroeder, Sgt Jensen, & PVTs Milliardo and Wiggins.

Quoting BATOH rossi great APC, the lines are really clean, elegant ... it would not be strange to see him walking in Beverly Hills!
Thanks! Yes, we could show up in Beverly Hills, parking wouldn't even be a problem! "Oh look, we have to squash another Bentley. A shame." :-)

Thanks! Although I prefer building with real bricks, it's fun to do digital stuff, and there's flexibility in it. :-)

Quoting matt rowntRee Oh wow, this reminds me of the illustrations from books in the 70s and 80s. The real practical ones and not the over fantasized stuff from wonderful things like TTA, but more the based in possibility Nat Geo stuff. Those fenders are sweet and look like they can take a beating. Brilliant gun too! Sweeeeet!
Nice! It's great that you like it! I gotta give props to Zach for the fenders, I totally stole that idea. :-)

Quoting Zach Sweigart Oh no don't misunderstand, I'm glad you did. In my opinion, I like your APC better than mine. You made much better use of the space.
I appreciate that! I like the angled look yours has, but I wish I had made a bulkier one last time, since I didn't use the interior to the full extent. I also lacked the number of big tires to make what I wanted, so the inside was really cramped. One of the bennies to digital design is you're limited to imagination and colour choices.

Quoting Zach Sweigart Heck yeah! This is bad to the bone! Rip off my stuff any day, my man, cause this is awesome!
I really do try not to be a rip off, but man, the wheel arches you came up with are brilliant. All of my other ideas fell flat (aside from a tracked unit I tucked away). So thank you sir! :-)

Quoting Nick Barrett General Sparrow, your APC is specs-accurate and a GO for getting confused with General Sweigart's on the battlefield.
Excellent! We love to blend in. We are RedLine. We are sneaky.
