General Information:

Official Name of nation: Armed Republic of Gonswanza
Name of the Leader: Laura Ortiz
Military branch attending: Gonswanzan Army
Name of the MBT: T-95
Image of the MBT: Image

MBT Statistics:

Weight: 56 tons fully loaded
Top Speed: 65mph cross country, 75mph on road.*
*Per estimates from trials prior to deployment. Actual numbers vary, offering a range for 60-70mph cross country and 70-80mph on-road. For the sake of argument, the average is used here.
Crew: 3
Manual or auto loaded: Autoloader, 12 RPM*
*Again, per trials. In reality, it might just match up if the crew don't beat on the turret too hard.
Main Cannon (specify caliber and length): 152mm 2A83, 55 calibers in length (hence, 15.2cm L/55)
Notes:
Technically it is not a prototype, yet, given limited exposure beyond Gonswanza, it is likely to be overhyped as a "new super tank" in spite of it being a tank meant for a purely defensive role. Alas, the autonomous turret may prove to be interesting for this Triathlon.

Miscellaneous:

Number of attending soldiers (including maintenance crews): 9 tank crew total (primary team (3), secondary team (3), tertiary team/reserve team(3)) and 20 maintenance crew, mainly engineers, with 4 officers on hand for supervision. 33 personnel total, with the necessary equipment and spare parts as necessary.
Will your nation broadcast this event on television: Yes.
(If yes, specify what channels shall broadcast): Gonswanzan News Network (GNN), Estate Military News (EMN), Perez Arms and Action (PAnA)

Good afternoon, Erloane,
I am very interested in this RP, but before I make an app, I'd like to ask three things:
    1. Does the tank in question have to be MT or can it be a PT-vehicle? And does it have to be a tank in general or can it be a wheeled AFV like a Not!Stryker, too?
    2. How is this scored?
    3. Does the team have to be from the military?
I am asking that because the Free Lands have a highly active Sensha-Do Scene (those who know the anime Girls und Panzer know, what I am talking about), who might drop a tank, if that is possible. If it is not, then I will apply with a vehicle of the Army.

Thanks for the replies in advance!

Hello, Selkie.

MT would be preferred, but if you slap enough modern stuff to a PT tank to make it competitive I´ll allow it. It will be scored based on the time, number of targets hit and penalties, I´ll let the attendees write the events from thier teams POV and I´ll announce the results for all teams in one post. And the teams don´t have to be from the military.

Also I´ll gladly join Senshado.

Wonderful! : D
I sometimes hold conventions (not tournaments, that is important) for the sport as RPs in my nation, so if you are ever interested... they are usually in the summer.

...why am I right now imagining an A7V with a Rheinmetall 120mm gun, gyro-stabilization, all the bells and whistles... and a cup holder. ; )
Fun aside, thank you. That opens up quite a few possibilities.

I meant the scoring more along the lines of which Scorinator, if at all, do you use or do you roll a dice or how will you decide, who won or who took how long?

That opens up a lot of possibilities, too. Stand by for an app later today or tomorrow.

Yeah, it's nice. I didn't draw this tank thoguh (wish I could make such art), so can't take credit. Just found an image of some tank, which would fit an army of crazy rascals, who like to decorate and paint these machines. But this img is generalized image of Sky Reaver tank. When this event starts, I am gonna describe how did the team decorate the tank.

It's been over a month here... Now I'm just wondering if this will happen at all? Not sure what's going on.

Also... Not sure if this is a necro. If it is, I'll take it down (or let a mod do it.)

Greetings you all wonderful people. I have returned.
