It's like if the Scorpion were designed with some level of rationality! I like this tank! Big treaded explosion dispensers are always a plus. This seems part APC and part tank given how it seems a bunch of troops pile in through the side, plus a commander on top! Great lighting and great use of camouflage to give it a cool effect!

This actually a design of the scorpion tank, I worked on a potential Halo movie about 10 years ago and this was the direction the scorpion was heading in.

That wouldn't happen to be the Neill Blomkamp movie wouldn't it? 

If so that's a very interesting deviation from the formula. I'm very impressed that you made the design seem that much more practical on a realistic battlefield! It must have been difficult working within what I can imagine were rather strict canonical guidelines while retaining some creative license!

It never got as far as seeing how the the game company felt about our designs, that is a story that never happened.

Really. I would think they would allow a little bit of leeway to give their designs a bit of a stylized approach. 

Their loss I guess. The art is well done.

The design has so much weight to it... like it could run over normal tanks.

Interesting concept: I like the idea of four segments of treads. What happens when a segment becomes inoperable? Does it jettison the damaged treads or something?
Very cool!

It is a pretty fragile design, driver by story rather than function:) You know the drill

Yeah I do. I was also quite curious because it's well designed (artistically). Hope to see more of those tanks!

A BOLO is a sentient battle tank that uses the same type of track and gun system as your design. If it is, I'd call it a Mk III or IV. More info on Bolos: [link](tank)

It's a very interesting series. The quad-track setup is a distinctive, practically signature design feature of a BOLO, as it reduces ground pressure, and distributes the vehicle's weight much better than the traditional two-track design.

Being a former infantryman and tank mechanic,

This design really intrigues me,

It solves alot of issues and provides infantry support organically to the MBT (which is vital), however it would be very difficult to maintain because it is like maintaining two tanks in one with separate drive wheels, so would this behemoth require two engines?

Another drawback are IED/MINEs would have a field day with this thing because the biggest weakness for a tank is the belly which is hardly armored at all, and is flat.

I am toying with sketching a V-Bottomed Hull for a MBT like a MRAP has.

Otherwise your tank design is really finely detailed and well thought out, it actually might look like a real production tank! I wouldn't worry about the size because tanks will make a comeback due to advances in Anti Tank missile technology like what the Israeli's made with the Trophy system.
