Panther Mk.2 Main Battle Tank
About this creation
The production of the Panther MBT started in 2005 at the Montreal Tank Factory, near Montreal, the United Canadian capital. It took almost 15 years to develop the first version state-of-the-art tank, but as every military vehicle on Earth, sometimes they need to be upgraded. So, in 2011, after the lessons of the conflict against Solennia, Canadian ingeneers came to the Panther Mk.2 main battle tank.

Among its upgrades are:
- An upgraded 140mm smoothbore gun developped in conjunction with Rheinmetall AG;
- The new ''Hyper'' Active Protection System;
- Upgraded armour;
- A new remote controlled M3 machinegun.

Specs:
Crew: 3 (Driver, Gunner and Commander)
Weight: 70 tons
Top speed: 50 mph
Armour: British composite Chobham armour
Armament: 1x 140m smoothbore gun, 1x remote-controlled M3 machinegun, 1x coaxial 7,62mm machine gun, 2x Raptor anti-tank missile launchers
Operators: United Canadian Army, Canadian Marines

The tank illustrated here has arctic camouflage and was engaged in battles in the Northwest Territories and Yukon.



If you look closely, you will see that I changed the 140mm gun and the remote-controlled machinegun.



In the back, you can see the ''Hyper'' Active Protection Sytem (credit goes to Aleksander Stein for the idea).



The additional fuel tanks in the back are only used during travel, and dropped during combat. Also, the red and white 1x1 tiles in the back are the Canadian flag.

LDD doesn't have treads its annoying as heck. Although the program is still a great first stage design program.

Very nice, much better than the original. The only thing I don't like is the placement for the AT tubes. I found that as good as they look there, they look better almost any place else. Keep it up!
