hmm well the plow - like thingy is more aesthetic..I'd say? I duno but the fear it would instill is enough...1st time i've seen such a redesign on a tank...looks bloody brutal...love the steam exhausts at the rear too...nice concept

I like it. The thing on the front that belongs on a train (dunno what it's called) is a nice addition for a tank. Who knows, it might be good for plowing obstructions too.

Thanks!
The device is called a pilot, or colloquially a "cowcatcher", and yeah it basically plows things out of the way so that the train doesn't derail. On a tank, the practicality could be debatable (considering it'd plow into the dirt when maneuvering rugged terrain or trenches) but it sure helps with the overall steampunk aesthetic.

Yeah that's true, if it goes downhill and stabs into the bottom of a hill, it could be fucked.

Don't want them to slide underneath now without tasting delicious tank treads.
