New Type 97 Chi-Ha tank model in H&D Deluxe.

Unread post by p.jakub88 » Sat Nov 04, 2017 4:26 pm

Hello everyone,

i came across an interesting new tank model found on http://www.cadnav.com/3d-models/model-35814.html.

The Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tank: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_97_ShinHoTo_Chi-Ha.

I made it usable using 3ds Max: the tank has 2 seats for the crew (driver and gunner), cannon and it is immune to small arms fire. thup01

However, it has difficulties with proper movements.

I will try to fix this problem, but my idea is to use this tank as a stationary gun platform in a defensive role. nods01

Meantime i optimized the positions of the 2 seats for the tank's crew and the tank's collision volumes - to eliminate the danger for the crew inside being killed by infantry small arms fire, which would be unrealistic.

I also replaced both original forward wheels with the ones from the rear - now they look better than before (see pictures below).

However, i still wasn't able to make this new tank movable.

This is not a real problem, since i would like to use this new Type 97 Chi-Ha tank only as a stationary gun platform in a defensive role.
