A medium-weight test type for high-speed attacks.
About this creation
NAME: D-20 Ratel
TYPE: Medium-weight Rapid Strike Vehicle
PRIMARY ARMAMENT: 90mm Smoothbore Cannon
SECONDARY ARMAMENT: 1x Coaxial MG (Optional), 1x Commander MG (Optional)
CREW: 3


So this tank came about because I wanted to try out a new suspension type. That's pretty much it.



So, fluffwise, the D-20 Ratel is designed as a cheap export medium-weight vehicle to serve as mobile cavalry and light support.



The suspension I was talking about. Instead of the quad-wheel bogies the Ratel has two twin-wheel bogies instead. Since the wheels don't have a ridge in them the tracks are the one-studs instead of the three-studs.



Rear of the tank and turret rear.



Obligatory turret rotation and gun elevation picture. Because of the turret's position it can't depress its gun very well.



Hatches open. Note that the driver can get out of his position without having to move the turret or main gun.



The Ratel with optional equipment (or rather, equipment that any tank worth a lick has) installed.



Base measurements. The Ratel is 14x24 studs wide/long, not counting the side skirts, and is 9 bricks high.
