I feel like this will be the future of tanks if everybody adopted the Israeli line of thought regarding tanks (Though that's kinda more outta necessity. Nevertheless, Merkavas are awesome.)

Anyway, I love the design. I was wondering if I could maybe use it for a fanfic I'm working on. (Credit would be given to you of course.)

Love the designs, hope you make more!

Looks pretty cool. Production and maintenance would be a bind though

Impressive looks. Four tracks and two turrets (or so I think) ?

Single turret, I'd say

Maybe. I think the gun on the back of the main turret is mounted  in a secondary one, for orientation. But it can be otherwise, or I do not use the proper term ?

You know, you're right. I do apologise, there really is a smaller second turret mounted on that tank. I thought it was just a co-axial gun

No problem, it is hard to see if it is really a turret, but it seems to me the only explanation given the angle of the gun. Makes no sense otherwise, no ?

This reminds me of Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex. The idea of what the Americans will you in the future.

I hate reading what i type sometimes. But what i was saying is it's like what the American's use in Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig.

I see this design a lot. I think it looks really cool and it would have far superior traction to our currents tanks. But it think it would be too fragile on the battle field. An anti-tank weapon would take out one of the four independent units far easier than the robust treads that are mostly protected by the tank on our real tanks. And the damage would be greater and it would be far harder to repair. Also this tank is higher. That was death in world war one and two. Lastly I doubt you could make this for less than tens time the cost of a regular tank.

Most people think the best weapon is one that kills best. Actually the first questions asked of any weapon ancient to modern are; How fast can we build them? How much does it cost? How easy is it to maintain? How much does it cost to maintain? Is is easy to repair? How much does it cost to repair? How often can we use it? What is the reload time? Can the the average soldier easily be trained to use it?
How good it kills people is almost immaterial to a weapon.

The nerd in me thinks it looks awesome. The Engineer in me scream bloody murder every time he sees 'quad tracks'. :(

Yeah, this would not be good on an actual battle field, that is for sure!

The only reason I can see the need for quad tracks is if they were rigid while on the move, but they separated when needing to climb a wall of sorts or make the tank more stable when firing.

That was the thinking behind them, you could go hull down behind steep slopes and get into good firing positions and climb difficult terrain

What caliber does this monster fire? 250 mm? Forget about the enemy, I pity those poor infantrymen who have to close support it. 
Btw, if you are interested there is one futuristic looking prototype tank recently unveiled by polish armed forces. Its called PL-01 and you can look it up on YT. How operational it will be is unclear, but it sure looks cool! XD

Neat, nice tank concept. :) Almost missed the "Last Caress" written on the cannon until I looked at the comments... guess I should examine the details of your paintings more carefully, ha ha.

Hi mate. This is an awesome concept but I was wondering how you managed to do the ground and stone. Did you paint it or photo manipulated it? I am just curious.

This was a concept piece so I was less precious about technique here, the ground and a lot of the textures and details on this piece are photomanip, getting the job done;) Where as I am pretty traditional in my approach to illustration work.
