Your Nation's Main Battle Tank (No Mechs) [Part 1]

Postby Lizardiar » Wed Jun 10, 2009 5:20 pm

Edit: Due to 'Misunderstandings' in the thread...MBTs, or Main Battle Tanks are the only vehicles that will be viewed as 'Non-Spam' to us. Mechs, Mechas, Gundams, Titans, or any other kind of legged machine is not a tank.
Edit 2: No Mech, no matter how, 'cool' will be accepted.
Edit 3: Go...Ugh...Here for the blasphemy that is Mech/Gundam Warfare....I feel dirty just for posting it. I need a shower now...*Shudders* http://forum.nationstates.net/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=160474

My MBT is the Leopard 2A7+

((OOC: I'm an FT nation so this is totally legit.))

The Hegemony uses the Arclight Ground Systems T-950 "Adler" Main Battle Tank.

Image

It's equipped with one AA 700MW Micro-fusion reactor, which is primarily used to power it's engines and fearsome 250mm coilgun; which fires high-penetration DU-tungsten alloy slugs at 1/1000th of the speed of light (299.7 km/s).

((OOC: I hope that speed measurement is right. I took the SoL and divided it by 1,000 twice. >_>))

Skama doesn't have tanks neither helicopters, it has flying hunters (use small rotor motors to fly like an airplane, but can be rotated in any direction so they can are very flexible, even if the speed is not that of a jet). They are unmanned. A nanobot material is expected to be used soon so when it gets hit (mainly by explosions), the material would absorb most of the energy and charge the machine's battery. The material then gets reconstructed fast via the nanobots (material itself is flexible to allow that).

Hey, best way to avoid an explosion is to use its energy to your advantage. :p

They are also known as killing machines, because literally they're 100% machine, and they never miss. Imagine a simple 600RPM conventional gun mounted on it -- that means 600 kills/shots per minute if all enemies are in range.

Ok that sounds too technical :lol:

When you've got a Civie population armed to the teeth, a strong navy, and what amounts to one giant city, tanks don't do too much good, Ex: Anti-tank fire hitting it from several buildings at once while it crunches over piles of wreckage, slowing it down and hindering it's aim.
