The Vigilante FV 4034 Challenge 2 (West) is a British main battle tank (MBT) and the successor of the previous Challenger. The vehicle comes equipped with a coaxial 7.62 mm machine gun and a L30E4 120 mm rifled gun. The vehicle can carry a crew of four and is powered by a Perkins CV12 TCA turbocharged diesel engine with 1,200 horsepower.

This vehicle blueprint comes with both desert and forest textures, is fully rigged, and includes animated wheels, hatches, machine gun, and rifled gun. A destructible state model is included with damaged geometry, textures, fire & smoke FX. This asset also includes weapons firing and dust FX from the tracks when driving.

The asset is set up as a traditional Unreal vehicle with an interior but can be modified as needed to suit your purpose. It is drivable with proper physics performance by using Epic Games’ Chaos Vehicles plugin. The Chaos Vehicles plugin must be enabled for vehicle movement to work. Also, the environmental clouds are utilizing the Volumetrics plugin from Epic Games and the scene uses Lumen.

A sample showcase/demo Blueprint has been included with an environment map and User Interface (UI). When you “Play” the map, the UI includes camera presets, sliders, and buttons to demonstrate the key functionalities of the vehicle.

 

Disclaimer: This asset uses the Volumetrics plugin and the Chaos Vehicles system plugin from Epic Games for demonstration purposes only. The vehicle asset can be used and modified without this plugin enabled in your personal projects.

The Volumetrics plugin is used for the clouds in the scene by utilizing the volume creation and rendering tools therein. The Chaos Vehicles system plugin allows users to use vehicle physics simulations to make realistic vehicle movement.

All rights of the Volumetrics plugin and the Chaos Vehicles system plugin are the exclusive property of Epic Games. Vigilante does make any warranties, inferred or implied, regarding the use of Epic’s plugins.

  1. Thanks for the models, all are great for populating or learning as I am a simple hobbyist learning unreal engine. I have been spending a lot of time using a top view 2d engine but need to do something in 3d for a change.

  5. Another amazing and accurate asset from Vigilante I just love what they do.

    However there seems to be a problem with Tank suspension even when switched to true in the set up.

    If this gets fixed I’ll smash that star to give 5.

    Thank you.
