DC: Road to Sorrow - Tank Mk3
The M7T Mk3 Wolf Tank, also known as the M8T
About this creation
The third version of the Wolf tank.

The Wolf light tank, was, by far, the best tank LTC, Lego Truck Company ever made. The Wolf was made by LTC as they knew how to build things that could take a beating, drive anywhere, and still go on. After the success with most vehicles they produced, (The TR-14, The C-600) they turned their attention to tracked vehicles.

The Bulldog tracked Vehicle, was the first they made, and, after that, they made a tank shell for that chassis, and so the Wolf tank was created.

The Wolf light tanks saw action in both Eastern-European Wars, under the command of the DC. However, as times moved on, and technology advanced, the Wolf was left behind and became a target for all tanks. Years later, the M7T tank appeared. More often known as, the "Wolf Tank 2".

However, there was a huge design flaw with the tank, the turret was just too big! So, the Mk3 appeared, with a brand new, smaller turret, with a more-powerful gun, a better co-axial machine gun, and a 308 on the roof for a soldier to use. Othre modifcations were made, but they were minor when compared to the turret. All M7T tanks were replaced with M8Ts. These tanks were often knows as "Wolf hunters" or "Wolf Mk3".

Typical stats:
Armed with a 120mm Rifled Gun with infra-red searchlight and auto-feeder.
With a 20mm coaxial machine gun, and a mounted 308 machine gun.

Can also have flares, chaf/smoke dispersers on the trurret sides/top and 2 missile pods, 1 for each side of the turret, holding 2 TOW missiles.

   Front shot. The new turret made the tank lower, and less of a target. The turret sits on a cradle, located in the tanks body.

The tank still has the "Wolf's claws" and "Wolf's teeth" for tearing through obstacles.

Credit to Connor Pruett for his ideas for the turret.

   Side on. The new turret looks better, and fits the tank's shape and design.

   A somewhat simple engine, diesel, turbo-charged cylinder, Simple and easy to maintain and to fix. These engines are hard wearing and tough.

   Turret. Now includes a searchlight, a 308 for anti-infantry/anti-air and a set of fixed lights.

   Looking down the barrel. The gun is rifled. Over the gun, sits an infrared searchlight, to pick out vheciles in the pitch black.

I'd run if I were you...

I've seen it before, and I know as well as anyone else that it is pure OWNAGE. I like the lowered, modernized look to it: WAY better than the Mk2. Don't get too comfy, though. The T-220 is coming soon. I hope... (You're welcome for the turret idea, btw.)
