Cordoba by jflaxman Cordoba by jflaxman
Cordobas are lightly armed and armoured muscle cars. Their best attributes stem from their powerful pre-Schism engines, but their limited resilience makes them more suited to fast strikes than sustained combat. They are popular with raiders, as their speed lets them choose their fights and run from tough opponents or unexpected reinforcements. Many convoy operators have lost scouts to Cordoba crews, leaving them blind to an attack from far more dangerous machines.

Design Features:

- The Cordoba runs on high-octane fuel. Its acceleration, speed and range are usually superior to its oil-fuelled equivalents, but its fuel is harder to refine, less likely to be sourced from opponents, and more volatile if spilled. Cordobas are sometimes towed by slower, simpler vehicles to save fuel and extend engine life. When an enemy's location is known they are unleashed to attack.

- The Cordoba’s two rear drive wheels and basic suspension limit its offroad performance. Upgrades such as stronger shocks and larger, tougher tyres help counter this deficiency, but most Cordoba crews use speed to seize favourable ground and/or bypass obstacles.

- The Cordoba’s armour is light and concentrated to the front. Its speed, low profile, and sloped surfaces improve survivability, though direct hits from shells or rockets are almost always fatal. Cordobas present smaller targets than most convoy vehicles, and normally aim to hit first, disable rather than destroy, and keep heavy armour at a distance.

- The rear seats and windshield are removed to create a gunner’s post. An internal rollbar helps support the roof-mounted main armament. The 12.7mm machine gun has a restricted fire arc, but its fixed mount is much lighter than a revolving one. The two 90mm rocket tubes can fire a wide range of munitions and are easily reloaded by hand. An additional fixed weapon mount allows fire to the rear if the main gun is repositioned or a (usually lighter) backup is carried.

- The wheel spikes and bullbar can disable light vehicles and help intimidate the enemy. This Cordoba’s bullbar doubles as a trophy rack – a barbaric but increasingly common practice among outlaw clans.

God, would I love to torment and - maybe - torture those indulging in such practices.

You must have REALLY loved the modified Humvee in "The Last of Us", what with the corpse strapped to the hood and the big sign on the grill that said "RUN" on it, and all. My favorite is when post apocalyptic cannibal babes make a bikini top out of severed hands.

Wait, I just noticed it's you JFlaxman! You've seen my work.

I bolted on the police style lightbar yesterday. Will be posting new pix tomorrow night.

We are definitely on the same page as to the design. I'm building a post-apoc art car from a 1972 Mercury Marquis with a 460 engine.

Check out the photos of my progress in my gallery.

Great art, keep up the good work!

I gotta say, holy balls this is beautiful. There's nothing more I love more then a Post-Apoc Muscle car armed up and sent straight from hell! :D

I approve of the gun on the back, looks sorta like a Fifty pimped out with some scrap parts. But that's just me saying. I also like the Rocket tubes, those are neat addition to this beast. What kind of munitions? R.P.G.s and perhaps grenades, homemade explosives?

Trophy rack? Yush. but what happens when they run out of room for their... trophies? X3 ehehehe.

I also love the kneecappers, those looks especially deadly. Very much so~

Al in all, I like it. Its a good vehicle and I would love to have one of those in the Apocalypse. :) Good show with the design on it and the overall background, makes me wonder where they are headed ;)

Also, what's that in the distance on the right side? looks like a sat dish or something, a settlement perhaps? a base?

Keep it up man, I am loving your Post-apoc designs!

I want to get one, but no clue if you take requests or not ^^' probably don't but eh.

Keep it up! :D
jflaxman Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014
Thanks! Cars like this are a genre standard so I had to feature one.

The gun's based on the classic .50 with an added antiaircraft sight. The fixed tubes were inspired by the ones on the Scorpion DPV… and would fire RPGs.

I didn't go overboard with the trophies but I might in a later piece. I doubt I'll go as far as Doomsday (one car in that flick was covered in skin!) The background owes a bit to some landscapes I've seen in Central Australia but I've kept it pretty vague - it could be any barren place with some wreckage thrown in.

I'm flat out with work at the moment, but I've done requests in the past. This year I'd planned to focus on vehicles, so ideas that tie in with this will be welcome - send me a note if you've got some to share.

You're welcome mate ^-^ I love these kinda cars :3

Ahhhh, awesome. That's a sweet looking buggy, I'm liking it :iconthumbsupplz:

:evillaugh: You watched it? :D awesome! that car freaked me out XD He likes to have skin on his car XD
I loved those bikes and the bus, those were my favorite in the film, 
and that one car that was actually somewhat normal looking.

I love some good landscapes, and awesomeness! :D Ya did good my friend :)

Awesome ^-^ I love your apoc style, and I bet what Ideas I got, 
you can make look freaking epic ;) 
and I'll try to keep them realistic to the setting ;) heheheheeee~
And I can't wait to see what ya pimp out next ^-^

Keep it up man! :D

This looks like a mix between Auto Assault and Mad Max.
I love it, though I can't help but feel that this is a dedicated pursuit vehicle. I've thought about the role of armored assault sports cars. Situations that call for speeds of over 70 miles per hour and heavy armor are rare because generally more armor means a slower vehicle, and in car chases, lighter weapons like handguns, submachine guns (or machine pistols if it's a cramped street and they're bumper to bumper) are better. Something like this, Id imagine is good for killing heavier tacticals.
So I imagine this as a dedicated APC killer.

But goddamn if I wouldn't drive this thing everywhere regardless of fuel costs.
