STEAM WALKER

Long in development, but first used in the Boer war, the Steam Walker proved tremendously efficient in almost single-handedly demolishing fortifications and blockades. However it proved less useful against the common guerilla actions it was forced to deal with.

Key Features:

Observation slot must be shared by both gunner and driver.

Twin smoke stacks with decorative embellishments.

Short bore, breach loading cannons mounted on rotating fixtures.

Gas headlamp fixed to entrance hatch.

Machined steel parts incur an incredible weight to the tank, but render it both resilient and impervious.

With it being steampunk, I'd imagine it needs alot of water to keep it moving, as well as possible large water tankers in the supply convoy.

Looks like something out of 40k universe... maybe a little too steampunk for 40k but still really cool.
