In the month of March, 2011, the chancellor ordered that a new line of armored fighting vehicles be designed as a way of punishing Twig Inc. for the collapse of the second world, and although this never happened, the vehicles that were designed lead to an advancement in tank engineering responsible for the creation of the SMT line, and later, the 5/3S line.
About this creation
__Seeing that the Lego Universe Creation Lab has been "Shut down for good;" rather than leaving all my old creations to be lost in time, I've decided to "Re-upload" these here onto MOCPages.
Release date: very late March, 2011
The first of the Punisher tanks, boasting a 17.5cm cannon, the tank was operated by a crew of five. Although the design had left much to be desired, the vehicle left a strong legacy.
First pioneer in caterpillar track design by BrickFed Tech
Entered service just after the victory against Xz1224.
Also, just to metion, the original name "Publer" is actually a misspelling, the name was intended to be "Pummeler."
Release date: very early August, 2011
Designed in resemblance to the Ash-7 of the Purpilian Empire.
Having replaced it's predecessor, the Kona class battle-tank, the Pulverizer utilized new software capabilities which allowed for one-man operation of the vehicle. Firing large-caliber, high-explosive shells was the tank's primary meat hod for dealing damage, although two auto-cannons and four fixed-position laser mounts were also available.
Often viewed as the most potent light tank of the third world.
Release date: very late August, 2011
Considered to be the Pulverizer's "Big brother" and the only Punisher tank which did not use caterpillar tracks.
Operated by a crew of three, the vehicle relied heavily upon the one-shot power of it's 20cm cannon as no other weapons were equipped onto it. It's hull armour was useless except against infantry, while the turret armour was actually quite effective, even on the backside.
Release date: early September, 2011.
The last of the Punisher tanks, and the first of the SMT line.
With a main armament that consisted of two 20cm artillery cannons, the name "Destroyer" was heavily emphasized. The Destroyer also carried five anti-tank missiles and had two machine guns mounted on front. Six passengers could be transported along with the four crew members.
As is with all of the SMT-series, partial credit is due to ScalesMaker from the LDD gallery for his track design.
It should be obvious that whenever I upload anything, I always include an .lxf file. Now this one contains all four of the tanks you just viewed, lined up in order of course. The file size is 392kb fitting 9,354 bricks.
