The United Klingdom: FV7031 Champion

Postby Valiant » Mon Mar 23, 2015 5:24 pm

ABS Defence Systems* proudly presents the latest iteration of a long line of MBTs, the FV7031-3 Champion. Since its inception in late BR 2,014, the Champion has undertaken only slight modifications to the gun and turret, while the chassis has remained relatively untouched.

One of the more recent upgrades, which saw the addition of stowage boxes, Trophy MK 2 and a .50 cal remote weapons station.

That's all for now! More info about this vehicle will be made available as time passes, or when I can post on the wiki.
*From here on out, ABS Defence Systems is a trademarked and registered company located in the United Klingdom.

I'm pretty excited to see more of your stuff, and although I'm a bit sad you didn't make a challenger-based moc (20% scarier) the fact that you have flags on this tank makes me incredibly happy in my pants.

I do in fact have a Challenger 2 model under way, however I've been having trouble with getting the turret right.

Great, just make sure your focus on making the turret suitably intimidating doesn't take away from the amount of flaggage.

Honestly, I prefer them too, but I have yet to place an order on them. I'll probably include them in my next brickarms shipment.
