We've only ever lost one, and it was captured. Fortunately we reclaimed it before the enemy could figure out the controls.

A very, very small reactor. It tends to explode when the tank is seriously damaged.... That's the Devestator's main draw back.


The Russians tried using nuclear reactors in their tanks.

It didn't work out so well. Turns out gas turbines and diesels deliver more power than nukes at that level.

Not really. We only have three. Also, I would like to point out that this is our FIRST tank, and it is still in the experimental stage.

Is the mounted machine gun on the back your only armament? You won't last very long like that.

Everything. Two heavy cannons are very, very bad (also, judging from the picture, no where near 105mm in diameter). Two gatling-type cannons are even worse (lol, wht r ammo conservatn?), no information on this "meteroshower" business, is it some type of submunition launcher? Oh, and the MOAB you refer to...yeah, that requires being dropped from a cargo aircraft to actually work, because it's really, really heavy.

It blurs the lines of mech and super tank. It's not bi-pedal and not too far-fetched compared to some of the MBT's I've seen posted.

that's true but the people that are going to say it won't work and blah blah blah do have a point, cannons like that and it's movement will be extremely hindered, but that's all i can say, many others will talk much more about it.

It's not really intended to fight or be used on the front line. The 50 caliber is for security reasons. And if it does happen to find its way into a combat zone it relies on its speed to survive.

I'm sorry but, that seems kinda impractical, yes? It's like a rambo tank. And the costs....I'm all for quality over quantity, but only three tanks does not a full armor brigade make.

Being serious now, it's a little tall for an MBT yes? No matter the defensive countermeasures, tanks and APCs should not be that big a target

It's a role playing game, to hell with ammo conservation, and as far as MOAB goes I meant Mother of All Bombs not Massive Ordinance Air Blast. The Meteor shower is a cluster bomb yes.

We only have three tanks... period. We've been exclusively infantry up until now and we only fight in defense of the Freeland.
