Background: I think this needs very little background Basically, design a vehicle that fulfills the role of main battle tank in modern armies. Anything goes, as long as you come up with a good explanation why it is a main battle tank and not a support vehicle, APC or scout. Might need some research about what a main battle tank actually means and what its role actually is.
1. Design and draw a Main Battle Tank.
2. Make sure you explain its role on the battlefield (whichever battlefield you choose to put it on -past, present, future, science fiction, whatnot-) and why it is a Main Battle Tank.
3. That's it... now draw!
The term "Main Battle Tank" is applied to tanks designed to function as the backbone of modern ground forces. It is all-around armed and armoured to face as many kinds of threats as possible, but especially direct hits from other tanks and lighter infantry anti-tank weapons. However, the threats to MBTs on a modern battlefield are numerous.
Hmm I'd hoped people would know where to go and suggest it all... Also, the Christmas topic will start next week, so for now focus on something more serious I suggest .
AntiMatty: Yep, Main Battle Tank it is, as is stated in the topic There may be different kinds of tanks, but I want to see the real deal here. You can include support vehicles if you wish, but I'd rather have you make a great tank without any extra stuff than a mediocre tank with lots of background and detail surrounding it, so take care not to spend too much time on the fancy stuff and focus on the tank itself.
Legato: I thought a military topic would make you all happy, though I agree it could be a bit boring in a way. Still, give the topic a twist and make it cool then As said in the last round, it is this kind of topics that get me fired up to make something interesting out of.
i dont think its as boring as you think, just an idea of the type of thing you could have would be the double barreled chinese battle tanks in c&C generals. And then if you think future, would it neseceraly have to fire normal rounds, you could have heat generated tanks, flame turrets, or even use sound as your main weapon. And thats just weaponry, think how does it move, how many tracks has it? Is it manned or unmanned, if its unmanned, then the whole shape can change, no need for excess room, it could just simply be a big gun on wheels, imagine how tanks would be in a turminator type world. Or am i going in a totaly wrong direction here yoitisi?
