Really cool vehicle design, but I wonder about it's durability. A flat bottom makes it vulnerable to landmines and IEDs. And those wheel attachment arm things look kinda exposed.
 
Still, looks freakin' awesome.

There's no real flat bottom, the giant swoops of the front and rear fenders serve to redirect the blast energy. Cause of the vehicles narrow sloped front, it's rear is elevated higher than the front tires are, that angle also redirects blast energy. Blast panels may also exist in the interior as well (such as in the Marauder 6x6) It doesn't have any windows either, all served 360° of cameras including under it. This is not a light vehicle (certainly not a car) so it's armor thickness is probably sufficient. Also this vehicle's bigger than it looks. While it looks like a dune buggy, It's turrent (according to the designer) is a 40mm cannon. I hope that puts things to scale.

Even though that barrel looks like a .50 caliber.
Still It could be a Bushmaster, the US edition would/should use that....
Still, never seen a Bushmaster without a compensator

One well placed granade would completly kill all that exposed hydraulic tubing. That area needs some more armor.

There are no hydraulics, it's electric. But the principal is the same. Wires vulnerable.

This is merely a concept. I don't think it even has space for all the internal mechanics, ammunition, storage, electrical...

This is pure badass. This would be amazing if really introduced in the US military. I know it's just an work of art (beautiful work of art) but those robotic arms would be this vehicles weak spot. U can bet yr ass the enemy would aim for that when they see it. But other than that this is amazing. Kudos!

Nice concept. Kind of takes the concept of the Halo Warthog a little further. A more modern look too it.

Hey iPeg, can you please a complete multi-angle rendering depicting the vehicle from multiple points of view along with say, a detailed description of the design and features as if your making a presentation to a defense contractor?

I know it may sound silly at first but I really really think this design deserves something like that.

If it's modular and multipurpose like say...a humvee then I would like to see a version with some mini missile launchers.

It's just a thought.

this is simply art. ipeg, i've seen you the first time when i saw the Thor, the smg, i loved it, and since then, i keep checking your stuff, and i gotta say, this is simply amazing! i like everything in it, the eletric engines at its wheels, the color scheme, the turret, everything! now, tell me, if that thing existed, would the MG be controlable by the inside of the vehicle? or is it automatic?

Hey man, thanks for all the positive feedback, I really appreciate it :-) The Turret would be controlled by the gunner on the passenger seat, that's why it was designed to be a two-seater :-)

This is REALLY cool, nice work. Would be a great off road machine, without the gun. Why don't companies make these types of vehicles. Instead of being lazy and using existing designs. First class.

Is this just a theoretical design or was this commissioned by the military/private contractor?

Seems like that's where the bad guys are these days :)

This design has not been commissioned by anyone, it's just private work. But I have worked for Daimler and some Concept Projects before and I try to use my experience with the way real concept vehicles are build and presented to create believable Scifi.

Well this is absolutely fantastic. I think you could submit this to Mercedes and the US military and they might seriously consider it. That GTK looks like an honestly viable skirmish combat vehicle.
