U.G.A. "Horror Tank" Heavy Combat Hovertank

The "Horror Tank" is the U.G.A.'s most recognized and feared weapon. The huge cannon is a deadly weapon, but that's not why it's called the "Horror Tank". On each "wing" is a vent that can spread a horrifying gas, called "nerve gas". Nerve gas is a military grade hallucinogen and poison. Inhaling it is the worst thing you could ever do.

Here's the cockpit. Note the extra room behind the pilot for storing equipment.

Image
Minor thrusters on the back, to speed movement a bit if necessary.

Oh yeah, it also defeats a common hovertank argument, that one couldn't fire without being knocked down or flipped. The U.G.A. isn't stupid, that's why they added lots of stabilizers and such to the hoverpads.



Let's see you Brikwarriors make some rules for this bad boy.

Yeah, I'm a lazy bastard.

That's not even CLOSE to a tank.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

Of course not. It's a hovertank. They're made in completely different ways on Terra.

still only a hover armored assault gun. a hover tank would have a 360 degree rotating main gun.

regardless, i love what you did with the hover-pads. i never thought tires would work so well like that!

It looks like a fighter jet that had some kind of malfunction. But it has a good design, as usual.

That is a nicely built vehicle and it is close enough to a ground tank for me.

Can we see a couple more zoomed out shots?

I wouldn't worry about this thing tipping over but what is stopping the recoil of the cannon from propelling the hover tank backwards. Something needs to absorb the shock and the thrusters have to fire a boost every time it is shot.

That's where extra traction, once again, saves the day. Along with the thrusters.
