VDS Advanced Battle Tank
VDS now brings to the table, the Advanced Battle Tank. The ABT is in advanced tank that can alter its vertical profile, meaning it can raise and lower its chasis. The ABT is an excellent tool for CQB within city limits because of its narrow desig, alterable profile, and proficient speed of 58 kph. The armament is relatively modest, a 105mm cannon. The ABT only requires a crew of two max. because the turret is fully automated.
About this creation

Quoting Michael Crichton Were you directly inspired by the Exo-Force design, or was this a case of parallel evolution?
Most likely the latter. Granted I just starting picking up the bricks in the past two years, I wasn't necessarily interested in LEGO sets/themes. The main idea came from watching GITS, but my minimal collection didn't allow for a proper execution of my intended idea.

That's an excellent tank; I'd hate to see a bunch of those rolling towards me. The turret is the best part, it's just to bad that the treads are hard to find in black.

Quoting Tom Olivieri I for one think it looks really cool in brown treads. I dunno, it just gives it that sort of "pop". Anyway, Erik, where have you been lately? You missed one of our late night fiestas in the AoT.
I quit the AOT, I'm not very active and I don't really like the concentration of the irrelevant threads. Anyhow, if you want to talk, you know where to find me.

Yeah, I hate putting the brown treads on this, but like you said it's too bad the black ones are hard to find. Oh, and thank you for the compliment.

Quoting David . Dude, this is outstanding! I lobe all of the detail to it! Great work! I am trying to think of a cool new name and how did you think of yours?
Thanks for the compliment. As far as the name goes, random things just pop into my head, and so I just pick one that sounds appealing to me.

Very good. The cannon fits the size of the tank. Obviously its ability to lift its self above normal height could be used to see over large objects. The treads don't look too spiffy though. If you can find a black version of those then it would be great.

Quoting Tom Olivieri I'm having Identity Issues. I can't decide on a good name! So, I just changed it back to Tom until I can figure out a good name. And, "Toms" are humanoids. Odd ones. Their favorite food source is the rare Ackroyd insect. The Ackroyd is considered a pest by many.....:)
I see. I'll watch out for these "Ackroyd" insects. They sound rather annoying.

Quoting CC-1102 "Rocky" Nicce work here, but you should change the treads to the thicker black treads.
The thicker ones looked horrible! So, I changed 'um to the more narrow ones, but only had brown. Darn...Anyhow, thanks for your input.

Quoting Areetsa C Interesting; I can't really find anything wrong with this, really. I might suggest widening the track pods a bit, but that's just my opinion.
I tried that, but it messed with the structural integrity. Don't ask me how.

Quoting Awesome-o-saurus The Not-So-Great Where have I seen treads like that before? And you have a very inventive way of attaching them too, I would have never thought of that.
The treads themselves are just wrapped around an oddly-shaped unit, but they do fit perfectly.

Thanks. I've always been a fan of Ghost in the Shell, and I've always liked the tanks because of their unique design. But, as Westerner, by mechanized units are always about being a tool and I didn't really want to destroy the GITS theme. So, I made this.
