Who here thinks they can win a fight against my army?

My army:
500,000 Members of the Imperial Army
50,000 Members of the Blackguard (Special Ops)
200,000 Members of the Teutonic Order (Elite Military Division)
150,000 Members of the Imperial Watch
3,000,000 Military-trained citizens


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.

Resource war? I had no part in such a thread, I'm currently involved in a war against Falkasia, Cerberii, the Turks, and another nation who I've completely forgotten at this point, oh and that person who was going to help me, before deciding I had "The Advantage" and joining up with the other side.

That is an artist's impression, my countries tank has more cannons and is slightly larger than the painting, plus the fact that diffrent camo would be put on the Armored assault tank.

Of course!

The Tarkinist Star Wars Empire of FreeSatania has many high-tech weapons but our armed forces rely primarily on this AT-AT Imperial Walker:

Image

It's heavy armour means it's invulnerable to most high powered energy weapons, it's armed with two powerful laser cannons and blasters. It's primary function is as an armoured troop transport.

However because it's heavy, slow, difficult to deploy and not suited to close quarters combat the empire also uses a significant number of these. AT-ST All Terrain Scout Transport.

Image

The AT-ST is built for speed and is easily deployed. It's offensive capabilities match the powerful AT-AT with twin "chin" mounted laser cannons and side mounted missile launchers. The AT-ST's transport capabilities a limited primarily by the lack of a lower hatch and therefore it is usually not used in that role, however it is capable of carrying 6 commandos + 1 pilot and 1 co pilot.

The empire also has a significant number of AT-TE. While obsolete and being slowly phased out of service the AT-TE is a proven vehicle. The empire is currently tendering bids for a vehicle to replace the AT-TE and as well as tendering bids for a Mark II refit of the AT-TE. The AT-TE is a six-legged heavy armoured attach vehicle with the unique ability to penetrate ground based energy shields. It's armed with laser cannons and a powerful projectile cannon.

Image

In addition the the above weaponry the empire also retains all the obsolete weaponry which was designed for use by the old republic. Included is the AT-PT a simple armoured one man vehicle armed with twin blasters. In addition to the AT-PT there are a number of other vehicles based on the AT-PT chassis. The empire is currently investigating re-purposing these vehicles and is tendering bids for a refit kit for the AT-PT chassis.

He's saying the Ratte he owns is bigger then the picture, with more guns.

Also, I believe that Abrams are wider then 5 feet.

M1A2 Abrams are actually exactly 8 feet tall, so it's "As tall as."

Isn't height bad for tanks? I remember reading that the Sherman tank used by the Allied forces in WWII was so tall that you could see it coming over a hill or dune before it could see you or even shoot you.

While the Imperian Court doesn't employ tanks due to the terrain of the homeland (a healthy blend of mountains, hills, pine forests, and snowy plains) our extensive road infrastructure does allow us to field mobile artillary pieces. Imagine a tank with an artillary piece for a turret and... Oh, just paint this gunmetal gray:
