I haven't seen or heard this before so I guess I'm the first (apologies if someone did do this) so I'm proud to introduce this reskin for something that seems to never get much attention, the Tau Cannon on the Buggy. At first I wonder if this was even possible but it actually wans't too hard.

Features:
- Leak Buggy used (better Tau model)
- A retexture that attemps to be close to the cut view model's textures

Fun Facts:
- I was originally going to use the retail model but once I did the side by side comparison, the leak model was the better choice such as the back circle being more smoothed out and the second spindle is there to name a few.
- Honestly the hardest parts were getting the coils and capacitator over.
- Almost 200 layers (not counting any backups or testing layers)

    I like this texture, but what I like to do is use the missing information texture, as it has an added phong that looks really nice in-game.

    Can you move the better tau cannon model from the leak buggy and put it on the retail version of the buggy?

    This is certainly interesting. And yeah I am pretty sure that you are indeed the first person to ever do this. Is there a chance for you to add the leak sounds as well? I have them on my harddrive right now, already renamed to replace the regular sounds, so I could send it to you.

    Sorry for the rather crappy screenshots, I'll see about making better ones.
    Dang typos.
