This is the Phalanx family of light MBTs or main battle tanks. The chassis can facilitate the use of optic camouflage, however some variants find it more useful than others. These are not in NCA show paint because I am too lazy and they actually look too cool without if for me to ruin that look.
About this creation
These are all the current variants of our new Phalanx family of light main battle tank drones. All variants share the same chassis but the loadout of each varies greatly.
This is a standard Centurion tank as seen in the main photo. It packs a standard 105mm field cannon, the standard for medium tanks. Its size categorizes it as a light tank but it is on combat par with most medium MBTs due to its speed, forged chrome-steel armor that isnít even scratched by anything below a 40mm armor piercing round, and its computer-based accuracy. In the back it has 4 hovering drones. 2 of these are anti-infantry laser drones, while two more are anti-tank mines/suicide drones.
This is the Phalanx chassis with a AT spyder turret on top. This is just to show the modularity of the Phalanx family and that mixing and matching is easy. Whatís on its back? That is a weapons rack that holds 8 rifles for infantry; perfect for supporting those large infantry rushes.
This is the Turtle (because of its head shape). It has a 40mm chaingun that can fire AP, HE, and flak rounds. It also has a .50 cal minigun to mow down infantrymen. On its rear is a place for infantry to ride and gun. ordinarily, it would only have 1 turret on each side but this one has two to showcase the types: 40mm semi-auto grenade launcher and minigun.
Whatís this you ask? Itís a tank destroyer. Whatís in the rear? More rounds, you can never have too many rounds. This is the Stalker tank destroyer. It packs a 150mm heavy tank cannon. This is the largest non-railgun cannon the NCA fields. For the small Phalanx chassis to absorb the recoil, there is no slew system to prevent the risk of shearing off the turret when firing. It has low elevation and is designed to hide far away and gun down enemy tanks like a sniper.
This one is our Stinger missile AA model. This model is for demonstration purposes and a normal one would never carry this much ordinance. A standard one would carry one of the two types of rocket pods with the optional copperhead missile or a rack for up to 4 copperheads. A future variant using a quad cannon system is planned.
This modelís rear weapons system deserves its own pic. This is a dual mortar setup. Each one has two barrels to fire 85mm mortar shells. Seen to the left is an ammo clip. This locks into the rear of the weapon, permitting fast reloading. The left mortar is unloaded and the right one is loaded. Several spare ammo clips are carried on the back for easy access.
This is the AP-7 Flareguard tank. It has two dual nozzle flamethrowers on board. It carries three types of fuel: propane in the turret, kerosene in a rear tank, and a sticky napalm jelly in a rear tank. In the middle it has a relighter torch, making it very hard to extinguish this beast. The propane serves as a close range flamethrower. To extend its range, the kerosene is pumped in, aerosolized and propelled by the high pressure propane, and shot out. This is a more medium range combo. Lastly, we have a kerosene and napalm combo for longer ranges. This is ideal for burning targets at a distance and laying down a wall of fire to stop infantry advances. All these fuels are specially formulated to burn at about 11,000 degrees. Tank armor will begin to become soft and is even more vulnerable to AP rounds at that heat.
MUAHAHAHAHAHA! My attempt at lego fire, meh. It is currently using the propane kerosene (right) and the napalm (left).
This is the Lancer SPG model. It is the first to feature the new vehicular ALDS (advanced laser defense system) and a fully amphibious chassis that canbe propelled by a water jet impeller system in the tailpipes. All phalanx models produced will have these features and existing ones will be converted. The download file does give all tanks the ALDS (I havent done the chassis conversion on all of them yet). And yes, they float at a level where the Flareguard will not extinguish itself.
This is the Stryker harraser variant. It is armed with a 40mm chaingun and a 20mm quad balistic rotary cannon. It also has a propane flamethrower with spark relighter to allow it to extinguish itself to fully utilize the optic camo. It last weapon is 16 40mm grenade launchers angled outward in the rear. These lob grenades into the air with hangtime high enough for the Stryker to escape the blast radius. They are mounted at two different angles in both directions for 4 aiming each way.
This is the new Hunter railgun tank destroyer. It packs an NCA standard 200mm railgun. To absorb the recoil, it has two stabilizer arms in the rear. To give better defense whilst immobile, it has been given 2 ALDS emitters.
Its cannon can elevate up to 27.5 degrees to allow it to function as an SPG as well as a tank destroyer.
Other modifications to the Phalanx family include the Centurion, Stalker, and Lancer being modified with coilgun acclerated cannons to give them better range, accuracy, and hitting power.
The Stinger II is the quad 20mm cannon variant of the Stinger. It has a SAM turret on it's rear to deal with farther aircraft. It's cannons can be loaded with Flak, AP, HE, or HEAT rounds to tackle any threat they need to.
More variants may be coming soon.
Some planned are:
More variants of the Stinger:
some utility models
anything else I can think of . . .

I operate with a double standard for istructions. If you are a random person who wants my model because you think it can help you with your work, you can have it, just as long as anything you make based off it is credited. If you are a member of a conflict group like D&CII, you can't just download it as thats tech stealing. You'll have to email me or approach me with an offer in the deignated trading thread. Thank you!

Thank you to both of you. I was trying to keep a look I had used in the past while still creating something iconic in its own. I will repost these later (few weeks maybe) after I have added a variant or two and put them in NCA show paint.
