B540-RC's (rotary cannon) role is toe-to-toe battle with other tanks. It is 20% wider than the B325 series and has a much larger turret (which give the tank a stubby look compared to the b325). This larger turret is required for the massive amounts of ammo needed for the rotary cannon, and for the increased armour.
Using a 50mm round with a depleted uranium core laminated with lead, then titanium, and finally copper. This semi-sabot round is especially effective against laminate armour; when the armour of the target has been thinned enough the uranium core will pierce the target and ricochet within destroying important electronics and internal soft targets.
The B540-RC uses an overly powerful turbine engine to close with its enemy rapidly as it holds no medium to long range anti-vehicle weapons. It carries a double layer of laminate armour (sounds redundant) to withstand the punishment of this close range combat.
The short range missiles are devastating at the intended close range, and a well placed shot is capable of disrupting the tracks of other vehicles. The 50cal top mounted machine gun is the only anti-personal armament the vehicle carries.
I read what you said about making the gun thinner so it doesn't look so "stubby." You should make it longer, now it looks like it has a very oversized turret: which it does. Which isn't a bad thing, I wouldv'e made the gun longer, like minigun length. great moc.
Great job. I think that this one looks better on a greebeling perspective. I do think that it needs more gunz. Not bigger, just more. One gattling is not enough. On a side note, it looks like the Gatling tank on Comand and Conquer: Generals
I like it
