It was conceptually based on it, but we didn't use their model.

And before you ask more, earlier Sentinel was a helicopter with pretty much the same function it has now, but it turned out to be too much (wall of Sentinels in the air = no air units gets pass), so it was put on the ground. :p Then Azri Apoc was supposed to make a graphic for it, and it turned out he used this unit as an inspiration (or something like that, didn't pay much attention).

I heard that The_Hunter (RotR mod leader) wasn't pleased that the Sentinel was almost a 1-on-1 copy from the Twin Fang, and the design was used without asking his permission. He did allow it's usage though in the end, although requesting that next time something from RotR (as in, made specifically for the mod) is used, permission needed to be asked first.

Wouldn't realy put it like that but i cleared this up with Speeder a long time ago.

 

If i recall correctly Speeder mentioned it beeing a homage to RotR and i'm completely ok with that.

I'm so glad that I have seen that unit... it won't be forgotten. Besides, it wasn't that bad as this sounds, it had no anti-ground capabilities.

That explains why China hasn't a dedicated Gunship now I guess.

I don't remember the details, but i think they were faster than Thors, because i could never hit them with IFVs when i tried to...
And at that point China also had Wolfhounds. It wasn't very pleasant, to say the least.

Wolfhounds were Chinese only when neither of the Sentinels were in. I still have a beta buid stashed with ze old flying Sentinel IIRC.

I don't have a pix, but it was never voxeled for the mod. On that stage of the developement, most units were using placeholder.

Was there any concept art? Or any plans for what it might look like?
