The AU-F1 T, abbreviation of “Canon de 155 Automoteur Modèle F1” which is French for “155 mm self-propelled gun model F1”, is a French self-propelled gun (SPG) designed and manufactured by GIAT Industries (Nexter now). This variant is also known as CTI (“Conduite de Tir Inertielle”, which means “inertial fire control system”) has been in service since 1997.
The AU-F1 T is based on the AMX-30 main battle tank (MBT) and its main feature is a 155 mm CN 155 AUF1 Howitzer. This variant is fitted with an inertial navigation system linked to the main gun fire control system. The vehicle contains a crew of four and has a Hispano-Suiza HS-110 Renault-Mack E9 diesel engine with 720 horsepower, reaching a maximum speed of 60 km/h (37 mph).
This vehicle blueprint comes with both desert and forest textures, is fully rigged, and includes animated wheels, hatches, and cannon. A destructible state model is included with damaged geometry, textures, fire and smoke FX. This asset also includes weapon 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.
