Thanks too Killswitch95 and Alex Sonny for suggesting the use of wheels instead of gears.
About this creation
The F17 Mk.Ib* was an improved version of the Mk.I, using road wheels instead of gears, causing an insane increase of speed.
It also had a new turret, using elements made in British owned factories, and thus stopping reliance upon other countries to provide spare parts.
In the field, the communications systems had been found lacking, resulting in poor cooperation between other ground forces. This was remedied by the use of a No.72 Wireless Set, which had the added bonus of being able to communicate with low altitude aircraft.



Specs:
Speed: 52MpH
Range: 300 Miles
Armament: 2x 30mm AT rifles
Weight: (Unloaded) 4057Kg

Previous turret was actually based around Lego X-Wing guns.

Quoting Stephan N A beautiful tank. I like it how you've used some elements in those dark gray on the tower.
Thank you. I try to vary the parts on my builds, sometimes with less success

Quoting Alex Sonny A very big improvement over the last version! The roadwheels now make it look a lot more believable, and the updated turret is really nice too, overall this looks to me like a sort of an AA vehicle. The front is also interesting (now that I can see it properly) in how the front roadwheels are attached, so far in front of the hull. Oh and you can enter this in a few more groups, I suggest iBrick and it's military branch :)
Ibrick has a military branch? Bah, I've been away from MOCpages for too long. And tanks for the compliment on the front wheels, kind of inspired by the Mk.1 Churchill, just not so high off the ground. And the road wheels made more difference than I initially expected, thank you.
