okay, that tank is clearly too heavy for transport. the thing about tanks is that it needs to be fast and tough as well as cheap and transportable

Wow! Well done. Have you ever read any of the "World War" alternate history series by Harry Turtledove? In one book, he describes the tanks or "land crusiers" of the reptilian Race as having "a car of the future look...beautifully sloped..." and having a huge cannon. I envisioned something along these lines.

Oh. Cool. Probably could've guessed that if I looked closer and saw the entry hatch was covering a hole the exact diameter of the snake, but I was a bit on the surprised side of things.

a 43.32mm Gatling gun? wouldn't that actually class it as light tank that could put a world of hurt on a heavier tank by knocking out key components, eventually punching through its hull?

:iconabiogenisis:
Abiogenisis Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I suppose that depends on what their REAL light tank is packing ;)
Reply
:iconmalgrumm:
malgrumm Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013
that is true.........if its packing anything bigger than a 50-60mm gun then ill be surprised! the range for guns on a light tank are limited to upto 60mm at the most...........

Good sir, I have a 'real' light tank design packing a 75mm coilgun capable of reaching hypervelocity speeds that can fire quite rapidly in addition to a missile pod, plasma-laser ADS, a light secondary plasma laser cannon, and active electro-reactive armor composite. All powered by a fusion reactor.

A 'MBT' would be 90 tons of 185mm death spewing monster.

How do they build or shoot anything with not arms with hands or fingers or whatnot. Those spiked limbs don't seem they would be much applicable to the crafting task.
Reply
:iconkalgrost:
Kalgrost Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2013
True enough. Those spiked limbs are really only used to help with locomotion or to prop themselves up for a higher vantage point (once useful on the scrubby plains where they went through their early development phase). Manipulation is accomplished via a set of six tentacles at the front of the head, covered here by the protective helmet plate. They can be seen more clearly here:

Now that looks wonderfully stylised, lots of subtle way, it's really well done, I really like the mech suit the Galkgrokst is wearing.

That would not be an unfair comparison. Though it's probably more lightly armored than that worthy vehicle.

Those digital glyphs on the barrel armour are a fascinating detail. Reminds me of the binary symbols in the Arecibo message.

 

A brilliantly functional but somewhat unearthly design. Well done again.
