As mentioned before, the Chinese 121 MBT Project.
About this creation














WoT Wiki Info:
Development of a new medium tank based on the Type 59 began in 1962. The new tank was expected to feature improvements in firepower and armor protection. However, the project was canceled shortly after. Some technical innovations were applied later, in the development of the Type 69 tank. All 121 tank prototypes were destroyed during Chinese nuclear weapon testing.

Model Features:

- Elevating/Depressing Main Gun

- 360 degree turret traverse

- opening engine bay hatches with removable V12

- FULL 5 wheel independent suspension (requires 2 additional 3.25 inch length rubber bands)

~ Builders Notes ~
Not my best work, by any stretch, heck, I pumped this out in about 2 hours, simply wanted to test widening the T-55 Turret for possibly a 112 or 113 build... as well as try my hand at more "intricate" track laying above the roadwheels, I haven't seen another Lego 121 on here so I figured "Why not..." It's a solid base for anything you guys might want to do with a 121...

Quoting Johan van der Pluijm I believe the tank's tracks are to high and the hull is a bit too short. The tank has a very low profile. If you need better screenshots, then I can help since I have the 121.
I have gone back and added another stud's worth of distance between the 1st & 2nd roadwheel because the distance between them is about double the distance between the 3rd & 4th. As far as the height, that is because of the angle of the Lift Arms I use for Torsion Bars in LDD, they are set at 45 degrees, to mimic free floating wheels, if built with a rubber band in place, the weight of the model would push down on the suspension lowering the overall height of the model (That's how my T-55 is, it's taller in LDD than in real life because LDD doesn't take into account gravity)
