M90 MkII 'Super Yankee'
Finding the MkI turret inadequate for combat requirements, the Chevrolet company came up with an alternative that allowed much more room than the original.
About this creation

In the old turret , the TC and loader had to sit in tandem, making it rather cramped. This turret is much wider, allowing the crew more room for faster reloads and better fire control. While it may have had the forward target silhouette of a pinhead, the side's was that of a barn door. This is an effective compromise between target silhouette and functionality.

Retaining all the fighting advantages of the last one, nothing is compromised with the new system.

The coaxial guns have been moved from the top to the bottom, underneath the main gun. The twin .50 cals can shred pretty much anything. Additionally, the gun was upgraded to a three-round 140mm gun.

The side-mounted grenade launcher was abandoned due to its vulnerability to small arms fire.




So yeah, that's pretty much it. The lateness of the hour might excuse the nonsense. Hope you enjoy, I think I'm becoming better at this tank thing.

WOW! This is a slick tank, and I think the colors on it make it camouflage a bit if it were in the right area...

I'll just repeat what I've already said. "The shape of it are the best I've seen in LEGO for a long time, but all those colors and grill pieces are just too complex and confusing to focus your eyes on. It needs to be smoothed-out, color wise." 4/5!

Quoting Jeffrey Donlon Dang. Wish I had that many treads. . .then I could build a tank like this! 'Course, it should be noted, I was able to build a pretty good tank after seeing some of yours. Great job! The turret designs on all of your tanks are brilliant!
Haha! Yes, some of my past ones are like "Can we just forget this ever happened please?"
