Wow, I like this tank.  Nice solid shape, interesting things going on inside.  I assume you haven't played a game with it yet, but you may find that the giant explosives are unwieldy at best.

My small suggestion is to put a "1x2 with technic pin hole" on the end of each of the turret barrels.

What do you mean by Unwieldy?

Their use. A size 37 missile has a use of 72. Making it reaaaaaally hard to hit your target and it would take ages to actually fire it.
Nice tank though it looks pretty  :666:

Not if I aim it at the ground on a paying field with a surface area of 1000 inches, because I would get a +500 bonus

Let me tell you about spaceships.  Flying targets, even big ones, are a lot harder to hit than that.

You should try it and see what happens.  In my opinion, reallocating the parts to a giant gun or more, smaller explosives makes for a more enjoyable experience for the players.

What about cluster bombs?

I haven't fooled with such a thing, but I imagine it's better against multiple small targets over a single large target.

Just wondering, what missile load out would be effective?

On my big stuff, I use 7's, 9's, and 4's.  But your experience may vary.  Too small, and you won't dent the enemy.  Too big, and the explosive becomes a more valuable target than the vehicle it's on.

Man, this is  :666:. My advice now is to start working on color blocking and shaping using slopes and tiles.

Not to mention the 3 and a half metre diameter explosion. Resolving damage from large explosives is an easy way to kill the mood of a game.

Don't get me wrong though, it's fucking awesome.

Yes, but if you take the +500 to hit anywhere on a 1000" target, your opponent gets to pick anywhere on the 1000" target for you to hit. Even with a 74" radius it's going to be pretty easy to pick a spot that doesn't have any of their own forces on it.

I am working on many smaller explosives now
