  1. Thank you! I love to give a background and a story behind each of my creations, I think it gives it even more character and originality.
  2. Thank you! I tried to take care of every possible detail: from the steel skeleton of the destroyed dormitory, through the taxiway, to the creation of 4 unique environments in the control tower of the air base.
  3. The peace negotiations have failed, it is war. Most nations around the world have allied themselves to invade Tosul and overthrow his government, and put an end to the climate of terror that is ravaging the entire region. Plighia as always is at the forefront, her naval fleet stationed in George's Channel is ready to begin Operation Justice Served by the international coalition. The troops have been withdrawn from Burke Atoll, and are now ready for the new mainland deployment this time. But before the land invasion can begin, it is necessary to gain control of one of the strategic hubs of Tosul's army, the Bahn Puor Air Base, on the island of the same name. This AFB plays a very important role in maintaining Tosul's air supremacy in the waters and regions of the neighboring mother country. Dealing with a land invasion without air supremacy, and with the constant danger of raids and counterattacks is not possible. As a result, Plighia's military high command decided to attack and invade the AFB even before operating any movement on the mainland. The goal is to gain control of it, in the best of cases, or otherwise destroy it completely, in order to have an aviation reference and support center during the main campaign, in this way, moreover, it will guarantee the army of constant ground air support and protection. The attack begins at night, a shower of cruise missiles, launched by destroyers, traveling a wider circuit to evade anti-missile measures on the coast, striking important buildings in the air base, and annihilates the anti-aircraft measures of the same base, thus allowing the approach for troop transport aircraft and helicopters, which are approaching quickly, to avoid running into reinforcements from the mainland. As it happens, a cruise missile hits the pilots dormitory, which flanks the control tower of the airbase, killing most of it, the few remaining have to deal with impassable runways, and most of the aircraft destroyed by the raids. At this point, the military in the base set up hasty and improvised defenses, using cement barriers and supply crates, as well as the vehicles that remained operational in the base. Eventually the Plighia Air Force transport aircraft arrive at the base, in quadrants D-1, and the occupation begins: soldiers parachute onto the tarmac and others deploy from helicopters, similar to what happened with the invasion of Burke Atoll. They must seek shelter quickly and advance just as quickly. GBW - Operation Justice Served - (D-1) Bahn Puor AFB Occupation by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr Sgt. Weisley: "Don't stop!

  4. Thank you! I'm a bit of a perfectionist, I try not to leave anything to chance, and to take care of every little detail. I'm glad you like it!
  5. Thank you! I made this moc keeping in mind to keep and get as many features and functions as possible (how to make every joint functioning as in a living being), with the possibility of realizing, as in the case of my other previous mocs, possible future upgrades, or additions, to be applied to it.
  6. Hello everyone! After a long absence I'm finally back. Today I present to you my new creation, a military mecha, I hope you like it! Special thanks to Instagram user m1ndxbend3r for the inspiration. The Mechanized Mobile Combat System Mk. III, abbreviated MeMoCS, is a state-of-the-art multi-role military platform designed to operate in any modern battlefield and conditions, from open spaces to urban combat. It's an anthropomorphic mecha with 6 limbs, 4 upper and 2 lower. Has an armor in composite materials and new ultra-resistant alloys was made to protect against a wide range of threats (mines, RPGs, IEDs, heavy calibers, and some types of cannon shells), also has active contermeasures. New and more powerful miniaturized servomotors and servomechanisms have been used to guarantee unprecedented smoothness of movement. Power is guaranteed by a hydrogen fuel cell battery. The cockpit can accommodate a single pilot who maneuvers the MeMoCS safely. The MeMoCS Mk. III is equipped with numerous sensors: high definition optical viewer, high sensitivity thermal viewer, laser warning system, radar, jammer, and is equipped with an advanced radio, satellite and GPS communication system, plus a modern situational awareness system that, together with its powerful computer, makes it a fearsome weapon, versatile and adaptable. Given its multirole nature, it can be equipped with a wide range of weapons: rifles, CROW systems, missile pods (both ATGM and surface-to-air), sidearms and shields.

    Island Rush - Bandaud - 1 of 4

    Congratulations @SATSOK !!
  8. Thank you! I wanted to end the campaign as neutral as possible as I am personally a peaceful type, and I would like to reflect this in my moc too. In fact, I have always avoided inserting blood, executions, free violence and the like, I don't think that with violence, repression, deprivation and sanctions we can actually change something (history teaches). Better dialogue.
  9. Finally, after many weeks of fighting, the Plighia army reached the city of St. George. After the success of Operation Ur, it became clear that Burke Atoll's invasion of Tosul's days are numbered. The last pockets of resistance are scattered and isolated. Although they continue to maintain a certain presence in the southern regions, their supply lines have been blocked by a total embargo and air raids against their ships. Now that the military presence of Plighia has established itself in the territory, and with the continuous naval and air support to the troops, we are now proceeding with the liberation of the occupied territories, but above all, the rescue of the citizens of Plighia remained imprisoned and blocked in Burke during the conflict. Fortunately, the citizens of Plighia managed to reach St. George before Tosul, at the beginning of the conflict, managed to take control of the communication routes. This is facilitating rescue operations, and now the last citizens are being brought to safety, to the north, where the base camp at the Maybury Ruins has been set up, and from there, transported on the support vessels of the fleet. The last citizen to be rescued is a famous geologist who was in Burke to conduct research. Unfortunately for him, his residence is located at the entrance to St. George's Castle in D4 quadrant, a splendid Victorian-style residence, now reduced to ruins by bombing. The man did not want to leave the residence so as not to risk his life. Now, however, a convoy of the Desert Fox of the Plighia army is taking advantage of the fact that the enemies are retreating, barricading themselves in the castle, to organize a mission to help the geologist.

Peter Label: "Let's move inside, pay attention to every movement, there may also be traps, stay close, and don't expose yourself". Raid in the city (12) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr DEM operator: "Our intelligence has just verified that most of the military leaders of Tosul's army in the area have cowardly fled the island, leaving thousands of men under threat, who are surrendering to the military liberation forces everywhere. We receive reports that troops in the city are withdrawing, and clearing operations are underway from Paul Scott Airport. We have now received order from the high military commando, chaired by our highest military leaders and by President Samina, we no longer have to take military action, as the leaders of Tosul intend to start peace negotiations. I repeat, no military action, updated rules of engagement, respond to fire only if necessary, and in any case, do not start gunfights with the enemy for first".

  10. Thank you! It was not a particularly simple job to be able to make the ground of this diorama, I tried with different techniques, but for me this is the best, obviously given my availability of pieces A curiosity. The name of this diorama is inspired by the actual "Operation Babylon" which was carried out by Israel in 1981 against a nuclear power plant in Iraq, before it went into operation, fearing the possibility that the Arab nation could take advantage of it to enrich uranium. Babylon was the capital of the Babylonian empire; Ur was one of the largest cities for the Babylonians.
  11. I'm glad you like it! I wanted to create something original, obviously inspired by real models, but not necessarily so much like it, the right balance between originality and functionality.
  12. Thank you! Obviously the first image does not apply to the final calculation, as it is only a premise to the main story and serves as an incipt.

    Island Rush - Bandaud - 2 of 4

    Well done! Love how you make the story as a comics book!
  14. Finally after several days of fighting all along the north coast, the Plighia army is advancing rapidly towards the city of Saint George. The intelligence, however, has other plans for Rats Team 3, in fact, thanks to all the information collected throughout the campaign up to this point, it was possible to identify a MILP (Mobile ICBM Lauch Pod) of the army of Tosul who held in position along the main island river, that carry a nuclear warhead, in the quadrant D3. There is a need and urgency to put the missile station out of action before the high command Tosul launches the launch order, with harmful consequences for the whole world. Then Operation Ur was organized, for which a commando of selected soldiers will be transported on assault boats along the river (the shortest and most direct way) to the MILP site, an attack group supported by a heavily armed UCAV helicopter. Heavy enemy resistance is expected in the area. GBW Island Rush - Phase III (1) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr Cpt. Gabriel Parm: "Ok comrades, this is probably the most sensitive mission of the entire conflict here on the island, the enemy army has deployed a MILP along the coast of this river as you well know, our mission, I repeat, is to neutralize the MILP and if possible also recover possible sensitive enemy information. Expect a "warm" welcome". Spec. Thomas Rough: "Received, my job remains to operate on the bomb before they launch it if I understand correctly, right? it will be challenging because the intelligence has confirmed that it is a new missile model, I will need a hand". Cpt. Parm: "Yes, Spec. Elizabeth it is here to give you a hand". ...Meanwhile... GBW Island Rush - Phase III (2) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr Tosul soldier 1: "The perimeter is safe, we have received orders to maintain the position, it seems that the enemy is marching towards the city". Tosul soldier 2: "What's this noise? it looks like a helicopter ... we didn't ask for air support I think ... and our radars don't detect anything ...". Tosul soldier 3: "Damn it's an enemy stealth UCAV helicopter!" GBW Island Rush - Phase III (3) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr *UCAV gutling gun shoots* Tosul soldier 1: "Take shelter!" Tosul soldier 4: "Enemy boats are coming!" GBW Island Rush - Phase III (4) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr Sgt. Brian: "Come on guys! Let's take control of the site!" Spec. Elizabeth: "Wow! that's a huge MILP!" Cpt. Parm: "Shoot down those enemies behind the trees!" Dinghy gunner: "Don't worry, we offer suppression fire! Watch out for the MILP automatic turret!" GBW Island Rush - Phase III (5) (Overall view) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr Lt. Serena: "Argh! I was hit! Damn turret!" Sgt. Brian: "I'm here, Serena, hold on!" Spec. Elizabeth: "I throw an EMP grenade at the turret to disable it!" GBW Island Rush - Phase III (6) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr *BANG!* *Turret disabled* Cpt. Parm: "All enemies down! Someone is still inside the MILP". Spec. Rough: "Yes, I ear them inside..." GBW Island Rush - Phase III (7) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr Spec. Elizabeth: "There will be a way to flush them out ... may we could operate from the external control panel of the MILP to make them give up". Spec. Rough: "Sure! We could convey the engine coolant to the interior ventilation system, we will freeze them! Let's get to work right away". Cpt. Parm: "How's Serena Doing?" Sgt. Brian: "Serena need medical assistance, but is a strong woman, she will make it!" GBW Island Rush - Phase III (8) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr Tosul soldier 1: "What are they doing? I'm dying of cold in here ..." Tosul soldier 2: "Shut up! I am deleting sensitive data from the on-board computer, they will never have it ..." ...after a few minutes... GBW Island Rush - Phase III (9) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr Tosul soldiers: "We surrender.." Cpt. Parm: "Take them!" GBW Island Rush - Phase III (10) by Jordan Parmegiani, su Flickr Spec. Rough: "Look, Captain, what I found inside the MILP, a PC!" Cpt. Parm: "Surely they will have deleted the data we needed". Spec. Rough: "Probably, but I know a person who is an ace in computer science, a real nerd, who is able to recover any type of data even if they have tried to delete, encrypted or secure it, the last word is not yet said!" Cpt. Parm: "Perfect. Now we hope that the liberation of the city and the safety of our compatriots will happen soon, and that there will not be too many losses. Tosul will put everything he has to stake to maintain control of the island, especially now that his plan to allocate nuclear ICBMs is failing".

    [MOC] Landing operation

    Nice diorama! I really like hovercrafts, they are very detailed. However, I would have paid more attention to adding other details to the beach, such as a more marked chromatic alternation for the sand, more vegetation and a more accentuated three-dimensional morphology (more dunes, bumps, roughness, etc.).
