During the mid-2030s, the US Congress woke up and realized that they were forcing the US military to lag behind by strangling it with budget cuts. Built around a concept of hybrid tanks that can fight in highly vulnerable urban environments as well as fast-moving open-field warfare, the M10 was developed.
About this creation
This is my first real playable tank that I've built. Yes, I've stuck figures in there and propped open hatches, but that doesn't really count.
Anyhow, on to the build. This was quite fun to build, and came together rather seamlessly. It is based on the German Revolution tank, that itself is an upgraded version of the Leopard series for urban combat.
Here it is all buttoned up. The hatches open easily thanks to the inverted 2x2 rounded piece that has a nice little lip on it.
Not really a first, but not featured on but one other of my tanks, is the articulating gun. This is just a manifestation of the automatic gun stabilization systems installed on modern MBTs.
The generous depression of this gun allows for reverse-slope tactics where only the very top of the turret is showing and dramatically decreases your target silhouette.
Big-time first: suspension, WOOOT! Oh, well, not that ground-breaking.
LOL I don't know why you've got so few comments on this one. It's one of your best tanks so far, the color scheme is great, and it's clearly visible where your inspiration of this one came from. Great job!
