This baby is Phalanxia's response to Range's increasing technology, even thought they're allies. This tank is powered by dark matter and has a conventional weapon capable of hitting as hard as a railgun. This tank obviosly has more detail than my other's which I saw necessary. I made a completely new turret for this tank, which I like, and I made it two studs wider, so now it's 12 studs wide. This meant that pretty much all of my spare light gray bricks were used in this.
About this creation
The front of this monster. Not a sight you would want to see.
The back. This however, is a sight you would want to see, actually, no you still wouldn't because the tanks sensors would pick you up.
The engine. This design is a recent breakthrough which enables engineers to harness the power of dark matter. The gravitational properties are, of course, used to make the tank float. And, because of the very strong gravitational powers of dark matter, this very heavily armed and armored tank can achieve speeds of up to 500 miles per hour.

A close up of the turret. The tank is armed with a 200mm ultrasuperextreme high-velocity gun. That is actually the technical specification, because muzzle velocity is 20,000 miles per hour. The other gun is a 30mm, full-auto cannon that has adavanced tracking systems built in. Also on the roof of the turret you can see RATP(Range Amplifying and Tracking Package), this little piece of kit enables the crew to "see" in any kind of weather, day or night, and even through moderately sized obstacles, even up to the size of a full supercarrier. This system also calculates the precise angle at which to fire the gun to achieve maximum range, whic is extremely far because of the very high muzzle velocity. Wow, that's a lot of words.
I challenge you to build a hardsuit worthy of Phalanxia, Robert! Design it so that you could (theoretically) deploy it en masse from standard dropships as if it were a normal infantry unit.
I'll be uploading my Rangonian hardsuit over the weekend.
I've recently made an upgrade to this tank. Its hull and turret are now larger. It has an upgraded engine and many more details all around. Last but not least, there are now a few more weapon systems on board :)
