This was in a different thread some months back. Its a concept based on armor that doesn't exist yet. Fun looking but will never be made and if it is will not be much cop. Probably.

Some funny facts about this "tank"

  • It has to stay tilted or oil will leak out (look at those wedges under the tracks)
  • Because it is standing tilt the turret always wanted to turn (turret lock is too weak), so they had to use ropes in the inside of the tank to secure the position
  • If the gun fires the recoil will drive the barrel into the tank, causing the muzzle brake to destroy the armour behind it (which is fixed).
  • The gun has no smoke extractor, so when opening the breach it has to be brought to an elevated state of ~10°
