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.

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

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:)
