You're missing both mine and Scythe's SHDTs. I'd give links but I'm on my phone. Otherwise, good work!

Scythe will upload a new photo with better angle.

I'm working on Luchardsko Prometheus SHeHoDT MKIII picture. I will update the pic as soon I am finished it.
Prometheus is size=16" Is that correct?

I don't think that there is a specific requirement on this. Btw SHDT is not an official class in wiki currently. These tanks belogs to the STD (Super Death Tank) category in wiki.

It'd be neat to set this up as a side profile view, with the various tanks silhouetted against one another.

I had an Assyrian Vanquisher STD built one time.

Here's an image of them together:

Didn't the 45th Union also have a SHDT? That chart is great, BTW. Good work removing the background.

It looks like a WIP/incomplete vehicle.

I am working on a STD, it will be more like a SDAPC, but it is still big enough for my liking.(Plus it has a massive gun on top.)

The Vanquisher was the original BrikWars Super Tank. Naturally, other people went on to build even larger tanks, but because the Vanquisher was first it set the category. To make things more simple, let's say that to be a Super Tank it has to attain 10" in Size.

Note: 10" is kinda ridiculous. A minifig would have to sprint to cover that distance in one turn. During the QoP Head Separator Part 3 battle I noticed that players had unreasonable expectations for how far their minifigs ought to have moved in a given turn, probably because everything in the battle was so big that it made the normal movement distance of 5" when walking seem tiny. That's really the only problem with larger stuff: you might not see how much larger than a minifig they actually are unless you pay attention. Look:

That thing is behind the minifig, yet it towers over him, standing between 3 or 4 times his height. The main cannon isn't even 100% in focus. To my knowledge no tank this large has been built IRL.

It takes 6 turns to move a minifig a distance equal to the length of Hyperion :D

There are several built super-heavy tanks actually but never used in combat: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super-heavy_tank
