Tank Concept by BenWootten Tank Concept by BenWootten
Tank concept, personal work exploring the concpt of a MBT crossed wth an IFV. This vehicle carries 6-8 troops ( the access doors between the tracks on the side) while havignthe fire power to handle front line combat. The mobile tracks allow the ';Paladin' to traverse extreme terrain, and also to lie 'hull down' positions behind cover.

There's actually a French MBT that also serves as an Armored Infantry transport and can carry around ten people, if I4m not mistaken. I can't remember its name, but it's a very reliable piece of equipment, surprisingly.

Are there 4 tracked tanks like this in real life?

Not that I am aware of, and to be honest, it does seem that two tracks work very nicely. I am not sure of the practicality of this beast:)

Speaking of an IFV crossed with an MBT, the army has a version of their Stryker IFV that has a large turret mounted on top with the same gun that the M1 Abrams uses. www.murdoconline.net/wordpress…

Isn't 6-8 troops a bit less for a tank size like this?

Shock troops in power armour take up a bit of space:)

woah... the firepower of a MBT, mobility of a pimped out IFV and all around awesomeness of a siege tank.

But in the end it turned out to be small car comfort and big car handling and was never produced in any numbers

Looks like a better armed version of the Scorpion tank from Halo. Very well done.

Wonderful design for a heavy tank, but I have to question the transmission. With the track pods mounted on such articulated suspension, how would the engine power get to the treads to make the bad-ass thing move? Tackle that and the glaring weakness in the side armor (troop doors), and you have one hell of a tank.

I was imagining an electric motor mounted in each track housing, that gets around the transmission issues.

As for the door being a weak spot if the tank is taking hit that low down on the side the tracks are is as much danger so it's looking pretty bad however you paint it. I do agree with you but it works so well with the track configuration:)

NO ! NO ! NO ! this tank got many changes :

the track joint system look more realistic - the scorpion (halo) got an Autoloader (the back of the turret is moving after the shot) - This draw represent a heavier tank ! The turret make me think to the "Merkava"... Very cool

There is just a Weakpoint on the middle of the chassis, this should be modified for a realistic tank... But very nice draw !

And the package could include the ready in shape terrain in which one could place the model in. This way the tank could already be in a complex position making it look even cooler! =)
