The M100 artillery system is is an international project aimed at developing a next-generation self-propelled artillery system for Montrovia and Tongoria.

The old bulldog tractor.
Equipped with an AD weapon system. It consists a .30 cal machinegun, an anti-tank rocket and an active-protection system.
From the side you can see how long it is.

Stabilizing legs down. Ready to fire.

The HMT's biggest advantage, the versatility.
Turned into loading position. The turret can be reloaded under 3 minutes from the vehicle.
I have to repeat what Cook said: "I can't believe I never saw this before". This is a really well thought out transportation system. I was looking at the cargo and bridge layer versions as well. This is "outside the box" thinking, and I really like it. Futuristic without being silly. Just tough, powerful, and practical. Also very well photographed. Attack!
Very cool, almost a combination of a Russian artillery (which sometimes has 2 guns) and the European Archer system. Really cool, and the loading device is also well thought. If you haven't done already would you want to comment on my latest creation, because I want to know what other good builders think of it :P
It looks so wonderfully awesome, with all the detail, and the shape. It doesnt seem as menacing without the longer barrel, and auto feature. Its true that it would overheat, but modern militaries have produced accurate automaticc cannons that work fine. Of cource they dont fire 10 rounds a second, so I reposted it with 1 round a second.
