I like this version a lot better than the original.

The front end on the lightning is way too long. It looks awkward and out of place.

If you slap some "hover-gizmos" (sorry for the technical term, don't be put off) underneath the chassis and color it the appropriate and heroic purple and teal, you'd have a very close relative of the PS1 Magrider.

I love the new look, length and all.

This version above is perfect...it'd be brilliant if they trimmed it down to this.

On another note, I'm saddened to still see all that silver armour of the VS troops in front of the lightning picture

Sexy! Hopefully the PS2 lightning will get more use than its PS1 counterpart. The PS1 lightning just plain sucked unless you were on oshur. Adding in AA capability is a great way to make it more useful. Sounds good.

Any chance you were listening to this when you designed the tank?

Re: The Lightning First Look!


It looks like something that gets launched by a bridge layer that tanks drive over....not something you drive as a tank....that shortened version would have pleased me. This looks like it folds up to save on parking space or maybe it turns into a raised stationary AA turret?

Looks great to me leave it alone.

I was expecting a c&c style stumpy tank with missle pods

It looks nice - Its orginal role Role a single player anti vehicle tank, and a machine gun effective against infantry. A good role now gone - A new Role
Anti vehicle and a Air Defense Weapon. A solo vehicle that helps to eliminate a team oriented weapon the skyguard. Its going to be interesting to see how many rounds of Flack and Anti Armor rounds its going to hold.

With Big Tanks, Bang Buses, and Lightnings who needs Air defense vehicles.
I'm whinning please keep the Skyguards. Don't kill vehicles that can hold two players that have too work together. Gunner and driver coordinated to kill those nasty reavers. Or at least make the Lightning a two man job. Stop the solo player mindset. please. Ok enough whinning.

And Hamma I see the VS and the NC have infiltrated your board. So the TR will have to kill them all and make them the yellow bastards they are

I like it, its realistic. Room for the driver and shells.

Length looked a little odd at first, but I do like it. This way its also a bigger target for the air units. Otherwise, it'd be a small little guy with huge AA potential. Wouldn't be very balanced.

The vanu armor looks boss in general. I also like both helmets. The pointy one is more intimidating and the smooth one is sexier.

Back to the tanks, I like the shorter photoshopped but maybe a little bit longer than that but shorter than the second photoshopped one. Ha ha, too picky. Easier to be a critic as they say.

Something makes me think that Lightning is also MBT now...

Looks excellent, I think it might be a tad long but it won't bother me because it sounds like it is going to kick ass. I only used a Lightning in PS1 if I had to but this version sounds like it is going to be a legitimate threat on the battlefield, I'm glad I'll have something to drive and shoot that can have a solid impact.
