The VBL Mark 2 (shortened as Mk-2) is a 4×4 all-terrain wheeled vehicle and the upgraded version of the French VBL (Véhicule blindé léger, which is French for light armored vehicle). It is equipped with a 132-horsepower diesel engine and a 12.7mm heavy machine gun that is mounted on a 360° circular ring. The vehicle was used in a multitude of missions and is amphibious thanks to its single propeller that is mounted under the hull rear.
This vehicle blueprint comes with both desert and forest textures, is fully rigged, and includes animated wheels, propellor, and gun. A destructible state model is included with damaged geometry, textures, fire & smoke FX. This asset also includes weapon firing and dust FX from the wheels 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.
