Republic Goliath Heavy Hover Tank . My second MOC, I welcome your input! I figured I'd try a land vehicle. . This MOC was inspired by the SLC Hover Tank contest. I was inspired to build a tank based around a cannon design after I purchased the Bionicle Axalara T9 set on clearance at a local store. I loved some of the parts and thought they would make a great cannon. I also had the 4 black dome plates I was originally going to use in a freighter design, but thought they would make for a great turret. The turret rotates 360 degrees and the main cannon can be moved up and down about 30 degrees. The missile pod has a 90 degree up and down field of fire. Access is available through the upper opening canopy and the bi folding rear hatch / access ramp. Some history for the "Goliath": The Goliath Heavy Hover Tank was a late Galactic Republic design from Rothana Heavy Engineering which was a follow on to their very successful Sabre-class Assault Hover Tank. The purpose of the Goliath was as a heavy anti-tank and anti-vehicle system to be used to supplement Sabre platoons. The base design influence of the Sabre can be seen in the Goliath with its twin repulsorlift systems at the bottom of the vehicle, its edgy, sloped armor and the twin communications antenna on the top of the tank. Technical Specifications: Manufacturer: Rothana Heavy Engineering Model: TX-270 Goliath Class: Speeder / Tank Length: 10.5 meters Width: 6.5 meters Height: 4 meters Shielding: (4) Exo-Shell 4 Shield Projectors Armament: (1) CTX-100 Heavy Rail Gun in main turret, (2) Medium blaster cannons in main turret, (1) heavy proton missile launcher with 4 rounds. Crew: (1) Pilot, (1) Gunner/Navigator, (3) Clone troopers / passengers internally, (6) externally Consumables: 7 days Introduced: 21 BBY Down the barrel of the main gun! Canopy open, clone pilot and gunner Rear view, the twin repulsor pods are clearly visible along with the rear hatch Side view, turret turned. Exhaust ports and details can be seen on top of the repulsor lift pods. A nasty surprise for an unwitting opponent. The rear access hatch folds down to reveal a bi-folding access ramp and rear cargo/troop area. Top view, canopy removed, of the cockpit. Rear view, up the access ramp with cockpit and rear area visible. Cockpit instruments are visible along with the upper targeting computer.
