First came the Tiger, and then they made the King Tiger. Later, they made the Leopard, and Leopard II. And now... I have made the King Leopard. Be wary!
About this creation
Good morning, afternoon, or evening, viewer. In the Northern Hemisphere, the middle of summer us upon us, and I can only hope you are chilling proper as I am. Literally. I have emerged from my basement no more than fifteen times in the past three days. Sadly, this means my MOCing ability is incapacitated, and my room's heat gives me headaches and makes it hard to breathe. I really can't handle heat. Which is why I'm in the basement, not the kitchen, hur hur hur.
Anyways, this here is the King Leopard heavy tank, called the Vasiliás Leopárdali by it's constructors. I'm a G, so I brought back heavy tanks. As the world's leading tank producer (the Imperial Ministry of Advertising is not responsible for this claim) the Roman Empire reborn (27 BC-AD 1453, AD 2024-present) was commissioned by another dead nation, Prussia, to construct a new tank for them. So they did it. Now that the Empire has been established as a tank contractor, two more commissions have been secured and are under progress. Or will be when I can return to my room safely.
Here is the Roman version. We built it, so we know all it's weak points. And the multiple users of this vehicle do not, unless they intend to rigorously test for them. Did I mention I stole the turret design from PhiMa on Flickr? Ultramarine's comment reminded me to give credit. I tried like 5 times to make my own design, but they failed.
Back-ish. I tried to keep it low to the ground, so it look a little funny.
Inter-changeable turret attachments! Here we see a missile pod with an active protection system, designed to intercept incoming ordinance. Anti-air and anti-projectile combined!
Prussian version with two APS's. We kept the missiles, but I'm sure we gave them some with missiles as well.
Roman soldier in comparison to this sinister vehicle.
Yonder Kaiser was very pleased with his new toy.
To celebrate my next too-large tank, the Empire's second-in-command decides it's smart to stand on top of the turret hatch.
So, there you have it. Gus has started on Precipice 5, so he says, so I'm really, really, really, really, really hoping he gets it done in, I don't know, the next week and a half. Or else I will take control and do it myself. No joke. More from the Roman Empire and for the COP coming up in a few days!
