VDS Advanced Main Battle Tank Mk.III
Although the previous AMBTs are still considered fine-tuned combat vehicles in the modern era, the newly presented VDS AMBT Mk.III should out-do both. The original tank is a rapid-assault tank while the Mk.II is mostly defensive. To combine the two into a sustainable ladder of effectiveness, the Mk.III takes offensive and defensive roles to the next level. With a lengthened chassis, turret, and cannon the Mk.III is able to lose some of its previous height. This integrates an often associated Russian profile with the advanced turret of NATO member-nations. The new version integrates a shooter detection system to relay data to the infantry near the tank. The CROWS has also be reduced in size which makes for faster actuator speeds. However, the greatest feature is the removal of the aft compartment. The engine remains in the front, but the rear now has greater room for secondary ammunition storage and the NBC filtration system. Another item to be noted is the forward mine roller. Although a fairly redundant piece of equipment in terms of description, the explained role is to neutralize buried or near-surface ordinance.

Sized up with engineer.





Note: Bad pics are bad, but I'm tired of messing with junk. These will do until I'm fed up with looking at their poor quality.

Everything is just perfect scaled and it looks as specific and detailed as a model build set of Tamiya or Academy models would look like. Especially the mine rollers are applied on a way that it looks very imposing. I'll rate it 5/5 and I'm going to check out some more of your tremendous work.

Quoting Awesome-o-saurus The Not-So-Great I like it, but I can't see too many differences between this and the Mk. II, aside from wheels and the antennae on the back. What changed?
The turret was lengthened by roughly two or three plates (can't remember now), the chassis was lengthened by a stud or two, the road wheels are more cohesive, the drivers hatch was moved, added some ventilation in the rear by removing the old hatch, the rear now has a superficial "rump", and I changed the CROWS a hair.
