Well, Everyone Else is Doing It...

Post by Cpt. Zipps » Tue Feb 08, 2011 10:01 pm

Thought it was about time for me to build a super-heavy tank of my own. Nothing like the Assyrian's but still a big fucking tank.

Name: Redemption Super-Heavy Tank.
Armour: 250 mm, Composite, Sloping
Crew: 4(Driver, Gunner, Secondary Gunner, Engineer)
Top Speed: 30 km/h
Weapons:
1x Silverman Type 8 Anti-Armour Cannon
1x FT109 Rotary Incendiary Dispersal Cannon
2x 30 mm Autocannon
1x Luther Automatic Weapon

The Redemption began as a refit to the MotherZuckerman's chassis and ended as an entirely new tank. While boasting a slightly less powerful main turret weapon than the aforemention tank, the Redemption makes up for this with the addition of an obscenly powerful flame-spewing cannon mounted in it's hull, as well as two Autocannons.

The complex turret system. The large gear is free spinning, but the smaller one uses a friction pin.

I actually managed to squeeze 4 guys in this one including the one in the turret!

The Redemtion: 4th in a line of mechanized ass-kickers.

Sure you do, use your biggest treads, or even all of them mixing it up a bit, then try nice color combos, gather your greys then bring in one or two more colors and finally add all sort of secondary weaponry apart from the biggest gun you can make, much like Cpt. Zipps awesome tank here.

Btw is it a TTSJ tank?

Thanks for the advice, but now I have my second problem, no treads.
Not even the full rubber ones?

Awesome tank. The color scheme is very nice, and it looks large and powerful without being ridiculous. ^_^

Great Tank, but as for the color scheme, I think IVhorseman beat you to it....

Great tank! That color scheme is certainly an eye-catcher!

It is TTSJ and Roc: I created the TTSJ a considerable time after that was posted, I don't even know if I saw it before I did and if I did there is no way I remembered it.

I like it and I like the gun turret, but it's not a super tank. It's normal I'd say.
