This is how concepts should be displayed. Very nice work

The thing is, I see so many points of explodability. Leg joint in side. That's going to leave a mark if nothing else. At worst, mobility kill. Armor is RHA. Rolled Homogeneous Armor. Sure, it's Carbon Duranium, but HEAT will have advanced still. Unless this is a type of composite armor, in which case that seems good. 12.7mm and .50 are the same thing, so this seems to be a fast strike vehicle. Attack quickly, smash the enemy armor and such, then fade away before you take too much damage.

really cool.

I saw a robotics team do this transforming drive train that you have there
like the transforming of the X drive into the tank drive

Very impressive. It moments like this that make me proud to be one with engineering since I was a kid. You could've easily designed the unmanned tank boss in the classic Raystorm videogame. ^^

The groundhog is a lying bastard.
Could use this to show him our displeasure about his faulty forecast.
Here is your early spring BOOOOM!*

Looks great.

*Actually I would not use such a vehicle to punish the Groundhog.
Orbital bombardment is much better.

@karanak: great job on the model btw, thinking of hiring you for a design ive been brainstorming together for a couple of months now, im good at drawing and sketchup but im no good at rendering and photoshop :( still learning x.x anyway keep up the good work! :D
p3rsh1ng Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
Not bad but I d place the turret on the front as far as possible. It really helps when a tank is firing from behind an obstacle. A lesser part is exposed to enemy fire. It would make a significant advantage in heavy terrain combat.
rikkuXchan Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
perhaps, but i dont think thats the point of the design, if you have a tank with the bulk of its turret near the rear then its usually to conserve the dimensions space for when loading into a transport or ship, plus.. it hovers, so i'd think it would be fast enough to evade cheap shots like you mentioned :D
neosuduno Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013
The negative of your statement is that all the recoil would transfer into the whole tank, rather than into the back and treads. This would significantly reduce the lifespan of a tank, and is the main reason turrets are deployed on the back, so recoil damage is minimized.
p3rsh1ng Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013
Never thought about it this way but the lifespan of a tank in combat is short anyway. And what if a real tank was firing behind itself? It would do the same you mentioned. Tanks can fire virtually in any direction so the recoil damage depends on the turret yaw.

Also as far as I know the rear of the tank base bears the motor and gears. At least Abrams threads are driven by rear wheels.
neosuduno Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2013
The kickback, if a tank fired from the front, the kickback, also know as recoil, would damage the tank, it is the same as firing an ungrounded Anit-Material Rifle, the kickback in the front would snap a persons arm. When fired from the back, the kickback is transfered behind the tank, minimizing damage. It is the difference between firing 15 round and 50 rounds without maintenance. Yes, that is, sadly the common number of times a tank can fire before the mountings need repair.
p3rsh1ng Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2013
Lookslike you didnt get what I wanted to say. I meant the case a tank turns its turret 180 and fires behind itself. Then the kickback is transferred to the front, isnt it?
neosuduno Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2013
True, but that is a rarity. Most of the time, tanks don't turn their turrets that far backwards, as they usually don't need to, or don't have the opportunity to as the enemy will have destroyed them by that point. Most tanks are designed to fire forward, and there IS no safe universal firing design. If it is on the center, than if it backfired, the shockwave would definitely destory the engine. The engine is ALWAYS on the opisite end of the cannon to avoid that scenario. It isn't just the mountings that you have to take into account.

У старкравтовского был осадный стационарный решим. Тут прямо противоположное. Развёртка даёт увеличение манёвренности.
