What are you going to use to destroy something with that much armour? The only thing that can destroy it would be a tactical nuclear strike.

The only thing that can destroy the Panzer Dragon would be a tactical nuclear strike.

And besides, I only have one, which I rarley use. And even if I did use it, my soldiers wouldn't be stupid enough to leave it in an area where it can be attacked. We are smarter than that.

As well, this is not a weapon of convenience. It is a weapon of terror. Your soldiers would wet themselves and run back to they're homes the second they saw this behemoth.

Just launch a couple dozen missiles at it, that will do WONDERS.

Again, it would be out in the open while attacking, and a Deep Throat (GBU-28 "bunker buster") would blow it to bits.

Or a Kinetic Strike.

Or a dozen Anti-Tank Missiles.

Or a couple of Bunker Busters.

Or a squad of soldiers that manage to get inside.

Anyway my point is it’s easy to have moderate to high political freedoms and still have absolute power, you just have to be creative.


Huh. That's a rather unique and, I must say, deliciously evil approach. *golfclap*

... it's at least 20 times the size of a normal tank. A normal tank can't get through a forest. So that rules out forest coverage.

So... how will it be hidden? You know, while it's 'destroying a city'?

Aside from our one-of-a-kind Panzer Dragon, we have the standard issue Tigerum Destroyers.

If you're going FT, then there's all kinds of radiation that bastard would be throwing off, and the enemy's (presumably FT) scanners would easily read the massive levels as something... well, massive.

Just for your own future reference: This is commonly known as Post-Modern Tech, or PMT.

You'll hear both of those terms, along with MT (Modern Tech) used a lot. Get used to 'em.

AHAHA.

AHAHAHAHAHA!

I could easily squash such a military, especially since, due to the numbers/size of your nation, they would be conscripts.

Well any half way reansoably trained army would simply sit back and laugh as you destroy your own nations infrastructure trying to move it to the front, its not as though you can move it by train or tank transporter.

As for protection 2000lb AP bombs would do a fair number on it as would your common or garden anti shipping missile. At that size getting enough armour to keep out even 105mm APFSDS fire will be difficult ( rule one of tank armour design, the bigger the tank, the bigger the surface area, the less armour comparatively speaking you cna have) so 120mm APFSDS would be a threat never mind the various exotic tanks guns that exist in NS.

As for the rest of your forces, its probably kindest to say you simply wouldn't have a snowballs chance in hell taking on even low level NS powers let alone any of the multi billion behmoths.
