F.E.N.S. Manticore tank
A creation for Mike Rutherford's strategic war-game "Decisive Action". Everything here is purist, there are no custom parts, or third part brands. This is for the category, Offensive land power.
About this creation
NATION : Federal European Nation States F.E.N.S.
UNIT: Panzer A Manticore
NATIONAL MOTTO: Europe shall not fall.
Location: EA-10

Decisive Action

So here it is, what I am going to say will be an Iconic... well, Icon of the European Nation States.
The Panzer Manticore

Developed after the tension between the American socialist empire, and Soviet China died down in 2008, a joint SAE and FENS weapon system, dubbed the Manticore was designed to enforce the nation states of Europe.
The project replaced all of the aging 20 year old Leopard tanks, and incorporates the leading technology between the M1 Abrams enforcer, and the Leopard 2.

And its ready to make some trouble!

It complies with all of the rules under Offensive land power.

The turret can turn 360 degrees, and the main gun goes up, and down.
Has treads
Main weapon is a gun, a 125mm to be exact
Purist
Not a dio, but has a fig "no extra weapons or stuff"






Thanks for viewing, rate and comment.

Awesome tank! The turret looks cool and with the cheese wedges it gives a great shape and looks like reactive armor. Excellent work!

DUUUUUDEEEE!!!!! LONG TIME NO TALK MAN! I don't know if you'll even remember me, but I was in the Conflict group before it went inactive. I boxed up the Legos for about 2 years (to focus on soccer), but just got em back out! I don't even know where to begin. Ive been down for quite awhile now, busy with college and all that, but I'm ready to start MOCing again. How have you been?! I want to catch up somewhow, what would be the best way? Its been soooo long since Ive been on the pages. Like forever haha. Anyways, I look forward to hearing from you soon, and hopefully continuing our longstanding military alliances at some point somewhere in the near future. Take care!

General Squid. This is best hardware on the map right now, bar none. And you have the smiley heads to prove it. Your nation is like the strategic opposite of General Ian’s MAE. Every one of your MOCs will be in accordance with your normal quality ethic, but you can't maintain this pace. Manticore must have been sitting around almost done already right? I mean, did you really crank this thing out in one night? Meanwhile, the MAE are cranking out "Place Holders." Low resolution MOCs that require little build time, but offer rapid growth in mil-capability. One on one, of course, your smiley heads will rule the field. But the dynamic of treaty organizations and the collective defense may off set your obvious advantage in quality. Zach, Your right. DA is a demanding environment. Adaptability and the willingness to leave your comfort zone are paramount. Perhaps it is best if you watch the commanders at work from the safety of the sidelines. Build Victory!

Quoting ~ McLegofreak Nice tank! Looks smooth and lethal! If you have any time can you give me some building tips? I would really appreciate it. PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH, STRENGTH THROUGH WAR. ~ General McLegofreak
I've never been good on advice, but when building military vehicles, I like to make very compact designs using a large amount of SNOT, and advanced techniques. The bigger the ratio of that versus basic techniques = better creations. Also a lightbox is a builders best friend.

Great build, Squid. Nicely shaped, just that the turret is a bit too long for my liking...

cool tank Squid, Will be upgrading some of my vehicles. Would like you to chat with me and Zach on Skype. Skype is free but you will have to pay a premium for more of the neat features.

Hello, my name is George Marshall, and I represent the African War Coalition. General Netro and I have decided to invite you to join our alliance and be unstoppable together! Netro has sent you an invite, and we will wait for your response. If you choose to accept this alliance, you will instantly be apart of something much great, something that will win this war. Consider this offer and all it has to offer, and get back to us soon. We can't wait to hear from you!

The ATN appreciates the destructive firepower of the Manticore and appreciates even more that we are far away in South America! Buena Suetre!!

I LOVE that turret! It's nice and low with lots of greebles. I don't think it looks bad at all on the smaller tank body, I think it looks quite good. Possibly the only thing that detracts from it is the track armor. If it only covered the top rollers would look better.

A very interesting tank... And I love manticores!

Cool! A lot of firepower in a limited amount of space. The turret looks awesome, nice details and a cool shape :-)

The only minor drawback is the small lenght and width of the tank body compared to the turret. Make the body abit larger, and it's perfect!

I am now accustomed to your very appealing building technique, but what astounds here is the quality produced in such a limited timeframe. Good luck In the group,I couldn't manage to take part in both at once!

Indeed, I'm surprised players are so worried about Dennis Price when you have the early advantage General Nightmaresquid. You have an effective voting block behind you, and a nice tank. Best of luck in the game!

I only mean that with you producing MOCs like this (the most powerful tank on DA earth at the moment) and doing it quickly... there will be some generals crying over broken sabers before all the dust settles. Yours will emerge as one of the "nations to beat" early on. I am curious though. Will that cause others to gang up on you, or will they flock to you for protection? This is shaping up to be an interesting dynamic situation. Rock on!

Nice! I think some of your previous tanks eclipse this one, but this one is very good! I will post a new tank as soon as my next Bricklink order arrives!

Quoting General Ian of the MAE Treaty? I don't attack you, you don't attack me.
Sounds reasonable for now, we are a bits away from each other though.

Quoting Michael Rutherford Deliborate design and short build time... You will cause a good deal of grief before OCT 31st... The other commanders should start praying for a new version of minecraft to come out soon.
I'm not sure what that means? I built it so quick because I have free time to spare, but I usually take longer because I get tired of the build. I had a lot of fun putting this together though, and I think despite any differences between us before, DA seems really well thought out, and fun. I look forward to playing fairly, and If need be will even give nations a chance to catch up. Aside from that I bet it will take a few weeks for nations to reach the breaking point, and be within a striking distance, so there is plenty of time for active builders to make there forces, so long as they start soon.

Quoting claw paradox nice turret, although, the chassis is too narrow, and the tread covers should be 1/2 as tall and cover the whole tread, because at the height they are now, every time the tank went over a bump they would slam into the ground due to the suspension rebounding.
Thanks, although the chassis isn't to narrow, its about the same dimensions as a normal tank, but I agree on the side skirts

Actually I started building it this morning, and finished at around midday. I also built my figs at double the time yesterday "although most of it was finding parts" Expect an aircraft tomorrow.

Very nice! I see hints of an Abrams tank in there, I think! I would have loved to play, but the timing is simply not for me ;-(. Ah well. It will be fun to see the tons of MOCs that will be posted from now till October that are dedicated just to this game. Sigh. Anyways, thats all sad. Anyways, excellent MOC! 5/5
