Well lookit that!

I like that it's called the skyguard turret. That will either cause people to shutup or massive whining. Knowing PSU...I'd go with the latter.

That is awesome looking. Love the features and it looks just like a common pool vehicle.

Re: The Lightning


I like the look, but it seems much heavier than I expected. I'm concerned that I may have difficulty distinguishing it from the Vannie...

Love it other than the length. Seems awkwardly long.

i agree it looks way longer then it needs to be, honestly end it a few feet infront of the headlights and it would look great.

Looks like a vanny from the back. I agree Siri, might be able to trim the front a little...

Sounds like it fills an interesting all-rounder niche now... I'm most interested in how customisable the weapons systems are tho!!

Agreed. Waiting for the redo. I'm amazed T-Ray didn't catch that and send it back. They should do anonymous polling within the company and redo things if they get more than 1/3rd dislikes honestly. Ideally everything should be objectively well liked where things like "it's too long" isn't an immediate complaint.

Re: The Lightning


That thing looks like a damned beast. I really love the low and long profile it has. Definitely has the look of something that will chase you down until either you die or it does. Absolutely fantastic work, though I'll miss my old lightning this is a really great redesign of it.

Lolol Evil Redrum is now a PSU news corresponent.

Also, I step away from the 'puter for 20 min to have a coffee break and this shit happens. WTF?

And the lightning somehow reminds me of the Siege tanks in StarCraft... that or the Communist tanks in Red Alert 2. Never imagined I'd actually get to drive one.
