Neutronium's weak, you need to combine all the quarks in your armor into a single hadron.

It's much more effective to just stack a few hundred universes on top of each other, and use that as your armor.

The Nth Crusade has proven that weaponized jellyfish will lose to weaponized bacteriophages. You'll need to come up with something better.

About hovertanks: if you've got the technology to have a tank lift itself up a building or over a river, then it's probably a pretty good idea to use it, assuming there's still a need for tanks in battle. Though at a certain point a hovertank might evolve into a really compact VTOL aircraft instead if you're looking for mobility and less reliance on good ground conditions. Just my thought.


That's just blasphemous propaganda from a heretical regime hell-bent on the senseless murder of my beautiful pets.

Pure fusion weapons offer the possibility of generating very small nuclear yields.

But why build ultra-fragile hovertanks when the extremely durable, tried-and-tested tracks are still a thing and a billion times cheaper?

If the hoverdrive/contraption/engine is located within the chassis of the vehicle, it may not blow up right away if the exhausts or hoverpods are hit. May destabilize the vehicle, though.
