Dwarven S.P.A.M - Tank.
Designed and built by Dwarf-King Yrgna Trohs and his cousin Manfred Thickbeard; The 'Special Purpose Annihilating Machine' was centuries ahead of it's time.
About this creation

First produced in 1332 by the Orkosan Iron-smiths, the Dwarven tank was the first to incorporate caterpillar-treads. King Yrgna claimed, "I got the idea for caterpillar treads after noticing the increased speeds of carts when rolling over flexible panels: like trolls!"



The dwarves of Orkosan and Talonjay are equally proud to boast the success of the S.P.A.Ms, the only noticeable flaw is the lack of interior space. While dwarves can fit snugly, the humans of Talonjay that use the tanks often complain of the cramped conditions.


The full suspension was initially, a difficult task since the frame was so small. It did work out well, eventually though. Worked out well for the dwarves... not for that troll.



And despite the cannon's blindspot, the rear is not a serious hindrance: Multiple spikey-things protect the 40 degrees that the rotating cannon doesn't cover.




The tank's 'trailer' is also modular and can transport most thing that horses can:







The dwarf soldiers of Talonjay.
