Feuer Frei by Panzerfire Feuer Frei by Panzerfire
"Feuer Frei!!!"

Bundeswehr units advancing from Afghanistan towards MEC 4th defence region... Iran. (Part of my WW3 series) ;P

This is likely to be my best work but also one with a lot of failures T_T
After looking more carefully at the lineart I a made stupid error and that was body proportions. I actually did care about that issue but I never bothered to see if the outcome was ok. I guess that kind of errors happen very often when drawing so quickly ^^;
Well... next time I'll be more careful on that issue but since I've been doing these mistakes very often I think I'm going to need a lot more practice with drawing bodies applying perpective... back to body drawing 101. :cries:
If you didn't notice the error... here's a hint: The heads look bigger than they should be... a little bigger and the soldiers would have looked like chibi soldiers. ^^; Man... i did screwed up a lot in this drawing. many body parts also look funny and weird. :( I need a lot more practice before doing such kind of projects again.
The vectors didn't came up as expected and my lazyness didn't allowed me to focus on more details. *sigh*
Tried to hide these mistakes making some changes in the brightness and colours as well as adding lens flare of different types.

What you see on this picture is an EF2000 firing a AIM-9 Sidewinder missile. Near it there's a Panavia Tornado in an attack vector. The helicopteris an upgraded UH Tiger helicopter. I say upgraded because the current UHT does not count with the Rheinmetall RMK30 as seen here.
Below it you can see the Leopard 2A6 on a improvised desert camo pattern. The Dingo II is also present below the tank. The Dingo II is like german equivalent of the M998 HMMWV (Humvee), a light armored personal vehicle). On top of the Dingo a german soldier is operating a mounted MG (Maschinen Gewehr) 3, a NATO derivate of the WW2 MG-42 and produced by Rheinmetall.
And in the first line of fire the infantry! You surely will recognize Helga Nadler firing the H&K (Heckler & Koch) P8 Gun. That's another weirdy thing in this pic... lots of guns, explosions and all of sudden... this girl... and with no kevalr on her!!! Let's simply call it: "Light unnecesary Fan Service" ;) . The other three soldiers are using a MG3, a H&K G36C with a silencer (Which on the middle of a heavy combat I can't see how that is going to be useful) and finally the H&K G36-AG36 (My favourite weapon ^o^).

After this i got almost college on top of me sooo... I don't know how much can I do before starting the busy universitarian life again. :cries:
But well... from now on I'll be focusing (On my free time) more on other militaries. I was planning some JSDF and PLA drawings since I haven't drawn much about asian equipments. :lol:
Drawings about the US Military will also continue to show up but don't expect me to make one every single day :P

Well... after some time... Feuer Frei is ready!
See'ya on the battlefield! :salute:

Yeap, it's part of the lyrics of Rammstein's song Feuer Frei.
