TCL-18
Pardon the sub par (even for my lax standards) photography.
About this creation
The tank was developed as part of a campaign to strengthen Colombia's military as a whole, though the original intention was a cheap and easy to mass produce tank, it ended up exceeding the low budget intended, but by far exceeding the expected quality that was expected from it. It is considered a Light Cruiser Tank (Tanque Ligero Crusero in Spanish), it is quite fast for a tank, enough armor to resist most small arms fire, and decent firepower. However it fell short on comfort, as most crews quickly realized. As with most Colombian military it quickly received the nickname of Musaraņa for it's main purpouse of quicly being considered Colombia's most active tank.

TL-18 Main pic, only better.

Upper right view, there is that Colombian flag that amuses you all so, well at least on the MIT-01 and on the MTH-02.

Upper left view, too amuse you even more I used a decal from TLC's ancient soccer line. And yes this decal is practically the only reason I made this the TCL-18.

A ladder, so even a toddler can get into this killing machine!

It actually looks a bit intimidating from this angle.

Did you know that...
...this was originally going to have suspension, but it failed so now all it has is frail tracks?
...the turret underwent any diferent revisions?
...I may reuse this to make variants of it?
...this is (sadly) all the treads I have?
...I do accept donations.

your fun-to-know-facts made me lol. Suspension is easy. Treads indeed, buy two 8259 (bulldozer/excavator) sets and a 7748(droid tank from SW), and you should have enough to do this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/52317352@N03/4863896714/

Quoting Josh B. I can picture a ton of these rolling along
Speaking if this was a real tank that would hardly be one. But yes, a couple of hundred of these would look amazing.
Quoting Philipp the all mighty And maybe do the spikes under the turret a bit more "agressive" looking
Well they're not spikes, just soe weird details that I added on the MIT-01, and I liked the look of it. They'll probably serve to acommodate any attachments for future variations of this tank, if I ever get around to making them...

And maybe do the spikes under the turret a bit more "agressive" looking, like you can admire here http://mocpages.com/moc.php/217903.
