Part of :iconm-tec-age:

Conception for a super heavy main battle tank of the Theiden nation. As one of the rare heavy vehicles they not count on speed and maneuverability it playes a main role on the few ground borders of the island nation. Designed to stand against technological weaker enemys with a lot of armoured metal it has active and passive armor, primary on the front. The heavy 215mm-twin cannon with short barrel fires self guiding and impulsive granades through an autoloading system. If ammo goes empty, the crew have a saving of quick assemblable flechette granades.
Secondary defense and reaction-fire-weapon is a twin linked 20mm gatling turret with full 360 arc and the ability to fight air targets. Even on the turret there are 14x6 metalstorm granades with a low self guiding ability to erase whole battle zones.
Simple lunchers are distributed over the tank, to fire anti-infantery grenades, IR-active smoke or heat decoys.
Beneth them, some APZs grant that no infantery will come to close to the tank.
Even if the tank is a nealry unbrekable island of firepower, the diverse enemys of Teiden can bring much more vehicles and men to the battlefield they can fatigue even this ruler of the ground combat.
Crew is about 4, or 3 if it was necessary to replace the, statiticaly better trained, elfish, dwarfish or human crew with minotours. Space through the backdoor, isolatet from the tank cockpit, is for 6 soldirs or 3 minotour size soldirs. Body is hardent and isolated against the often heavy radiation, toxic gasses or biological attacks.
Drive is powered by a chemical reaction system.

Back 2:

You should have turned the turret so it was looking at the viewer. :XD:
Nice model. :nod: I think you have one too many light protectors covering the headlights though. I looks like very little light would get through... :shrug:

Hehe, yeah, but i had to decide for one perspective....this shows the most(okay, maybe i should have make a perspective from a little bit higher). But i have to rework the pic anyway, it a shame(and a sign of lazyness on my early works) to lack of backround stuff. 
But i still had some freaky ideas in this direction, on was the perspective of a grenade, looking along the rifled barrel to another tank xD
Will take a second look to the lights if i have it open again;) Thx!

You know what they say about hindsight... ;P  (perfect 20/20 vision)

It could just be the perspective that makes it look wrong to me, but as you will. :)

Could be that youre right, lets have a second look.

The tank's ground clearance is AWFUL. I advise raising the chassis until the belly is level with the road wheels' tops.
NikitaTarsov Featured By Owner May 4, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Hehe, yeah right.
You can say its a problem of the manufactors wordview. The Theiden nation is fighting nearly exclusiv in urban areas, tanks was delivered there by ships or verctorthrust-transporters if not able to reach over its good build road systems.
The tank operates only on borders to other nations(cause in this world the post-apocalyptic radiation make habitable areas very rare, and quick build up). A big treatment for the tanks against the - most time much more worse in the technological level(the enemy tanks have tech-level of a T80 with some single stolen high-tech tools sometimes) - are improvised explosives. And for Theiden level, its also relative low-tech...front tech you can say.
