    One of the strange things ever designed by the great inventor & artist Leonardo Da Vinci: a tank :crazyeye:

    Here are the files (roughly 1.8 mb)
    Da Vinci Tank

    Here is an animation preview of this baby (including Default, Fidget, Run, Attack A, Attack B, Attack C and Death):


    And here's a civilopedia pic.

    That has to be the silliest thing ever turned into a unit, but it's class anyway. I wonder how long it takes before someone making a 50's scifi scenario requests you turn that thing into a flying saucer. :lol:

    @Drift - don't make fun of it.
    It is clearly some sort of chaos magic unit... :p ;) :hammer:

    @xen - No, I don't have any plans on doing those da vinci's ships. And I think that I won't do them at all.

    There is some thought now that Da Vinci might have been autistic.

    I think the silly units are always better than the serious units.

    People need happiness, laughter and silliness in their lives. That is why I made the "Cat" mod (AW:pP). Games are supposed to be fun and what's "fun" doesn't always have to be historically accurate or serious; silly is good too!!!!

    Great unit aaglo :goodjob:! I especially like the rock they throw out for the first attack :lol:!

    Brilliant! I had seen the drawings, and always wondered what the thing would have been like if actually manufactured.

    Well, it looks like a rock to me, but perhpas it is a lazy guy who wouldn't push the tank?

    Awesome as usual, Aalgo. What is next.
