Holy crap, he made his own tank for once... A shock indeed haha...
About this creation
- Historical Info -
The D-79A was a German design during the late phase of an alternate timeline of World War II, a timeline where Japan was not nuked, and the German Atomic Bomb was a success extending the war into the late 1960's.
The D-79A was build using the most advanced computer technology of the day. Computer technology rivaling that of today's tech because the war was so extensive that the development of computer technology was advanced at a far superior pace than this reality actually experienced. The computer technology in the D-79A makes it the worlds first Drone Battle Tank (DBT) Allowing the tank to feature a 120mm armament and minimal armor needed to simply stop 20mm rounds.
As such the design is incredibly small for its size and role and is easy to manufacture much like the Soviet T-55. In fact German spies in the Soviet Union sent T-55 documents back to Germany and the designers incorporated the front plate design into the D-79A to further reduce weight.
The engine is a 1000HP power-pack unit that weighs only 700kg, and the weight of the tank itself is only about 25 tons allowing an easy top speed on 80km/h and more than enough torque to get through the roughest terrain. This couple with the exceptionally wide tracks makes this tank extremely agile in cross country terrain.
The small size, speed, and gun of this drone tank allows it to excel at recon and stealth attacks. And when used in numbers can easily overwhelm an opposing force.
The only main drawback of this tank was that all of the signals for the tank was relayed out of one building outside of Berlin. And when the Allies nuked Berlin in 1965 the entirety of the horde of D-79A's were rendered useless.
The design of this tank was revolutionary for the time and today all nations use drone battle tanks.*
* Remember that is an alternate reality, not applicable to this current timeline...
I got tired of building real tanks so I made my own. I tried to incorporate some German, Soviet, American, and Chinese design ques... The German and Soviet ques are easy to find, but the American and Chinese may tank a bit to figure out.
