You know, since GWO never showed us a picture of the Divine Tiger Heavy Main Battle Tank, I always imagined it would be a green Apocalypse Tank.

Or maybe a Mammoth Tank from Renegade, only green.

well i wouldn't think green would set the "scare factor," it would kinda give an impression to the enemies that we are "tree lovers"

I think it would depend on the shade of green, I pictured a more neon green, like a radioactive green...

which made more of a "mutant" impression in my mind...

What colour is this scary tank?

That's right, green. We all know at 2 gallons to a mile, the Abrams it the anti-thesis of a tree hugger. :P

It doesn't look environmental to me. It looks large, blocky, easy to hit and very tough.

It also looks like it eats trees with mine flails.

T-72B Heavy Tank. Contrary to popular belief, they can most likely fight an M1 Abrams and win.

Not true, I think a couple guys were killed from an IED in the 2nd Gulf War and some guys were killed when their tank got hit by another Abrams in the 1st GW.

Export models, hell no they'd fail.

Soviet models, maybe. T80U would hold better.

That's what I mean, the Soviet/Russian models, heck I only use Russian models, and as you said, the export models suck.

Quite. Soviet T72 models are good, but the T80U is a pretty beastly tank, better match up really. Up until about 1992, the Kontact-5 armour made the T80U and T72B almost invulnerable to the M829A1 APFSDS.

At least that's what I read from some testing they did back in the late 1990's using the Russian models.

Goldaron's MBT is the Armored Tiger, a 65 ton MBT that uses a combination of Chobham and Electro Reactive Armor for defense, its primary weapon is a 155mm smoothbore gun backed up with a coaxial 7.62 and a turret mounted 12.7 machine guns. Half the Goldan fleet has been modified to use a hybrid engine and maintains a top speed of 49 mph.

Well since that tank you just posted would cost millions to build and couldnt shoot a tank unless it was miles way (because of the angle) and would take quite along time to reload and would cost tons to maintain and would guzzle up fuel like crazy and.. well i could go on?

It isn't made for combat.

It's made to destroy entire cities.

If you see, you can hit it.

If you can hit it, you can kill it.

You can see this travesty from miles away. It will slow and unmaneuverable. Therefore, it will be easy to kill from a distance.
