this is pretty sweet :D
sonamy-666 Featured By Owner May 11, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Does the weapon require two hands to hold it?
Ergrassa Featured By Owner May 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, it does
sonamy-666 Featured By Owner May 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Then it can be called a Zwihander then. Sorry, its just a lot of people seem to call their weapons Zwihander just because it sounds cool. If they knew it means "two hands" then it wouldn't seem such a good name for a tank, know what I mean?

Well the nature of the noteworthy swords that were also often referred to by this name would actually accentuate the nature of a tank really well. Being that the aforesaid blades were for the purpose of taking the legs off of horses in a single swipe.

Nice display!
Btw it would typed "Zweihänder"(or "Bidenhänder" if you want it real retro^^) and "Panzerschreck" in German - we love our little dots so much;)

Very cool.
ZBlayde Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2010
Awesome!!!...if anyone could figure out how to use it.
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nothing difficult.
Put it on your shoulder, release the safety handle on it's right, aim the target, press red button on left side of grip, watch the explosion. =)
ZBlayde Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2010
Why not use a pistol-grip with a trigger, instead of a single button?
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is designed for usage also with heavy armor suits, which have rather big gloves (noticably bigger than bare hands), so the typical grip and trigger are not useful enough.
ZBlayde Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2010
So instead, you gave them a tiny button? Wouldn't that be kind of hard to press with huge gloves?
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I also think it's not enough easypressing, but it slightly reduces chance of accidential press.
ZBlayde Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2010
Well, why not put a safety on it, like on a gun? Actually, since these are made for heavy armor suits anyway, which I assume are some sort of high-tech, they wouldn't even need a trigger, button, or safety. They could just use a neural interface.
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Neural interface is not reliable enough. The fire button and safety lock are, IMO, most easy-to-use interface for any human and non-human soldiers. =)

Как-то его вроде не удобно держать в руках %)
И отдача наверное будет огого =)
Ergrassa Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Он наплечный и безоткатный =)
Неудобно разве что по причине того, что очень тяжелый.
