Heavyweight Champion
After Pavel Skryabin demanded the development of a new more powerful tank than the Chynska, to fight future heavily-armored tanks, the prototype of the Armata was ready in less than a half year. After heavy-trials, the final version is shown here.
About this creation
Some things may seem futuristic. It was made for my country, the Tongorian Union in Divide and Conquer II


!WARNING! Boring statistics ahead!

Type: Tracked Heavy Armored Vehicle
Place of origin: Banner of the mighty Tongorian union Tongorian Union

Service history
Used by: Ground froce of the Tongorian Union

Production history
Designer: Tongorian Ground Desgin Bureau
Produced: begins in 2703, 400 pre-ordered

Specifications
Crew: 3
Armor: classified, composite, carbon nanotubes, Kitin ERA
Main armament: 152mm ETC cannon (40 rounds)
Seconary armament: 1 30mm coaxial gun
Engine: Multi-fuel
1,200 hp, 1 Micro-fusion cell, 2 500hp electric engines
Transmission: Continuously Variable Transmission







Firepower
The gun is currently, the most powerful Tongorian AT-gun fielded, a 152mm ETC gun, firing a 20kg Tungsten dart at 2,200m/s speed. Although, it can fire HE-FRAG ammunition too. The 70 ton heavy tank can easily handle the recoil of the gun. The gun is housed in non-manned turret, that also contains the ammunition. 40 shells are located vertically in a circular way.

Hunter-killer system

This is probably the best feature of the tank, the fire-control system. The AI can track several target, the gunner confirms it and than the AI engages it, first the most dangeroues. The tank itself is almost completely autonomous (target-tracking, calculating, engaging, loading, ammunition selecting, but the humans still control it.

Protection
The Type-99 is fitted with e tree-tiered protection system. The first tier is the composite nano-carbon tube.

The second tier is fifth generation Kitin ERA which significantly degrades the penetrating power of kinetic-energy ammunition and also these ERA blocks give the turret its distinctive appearance.

The third tier is a Shtora-3 countermeasures suite, produced by Elektromashina of Tongoria. This system includes two electro-optical/IR dazzlers on the front of the turret (which gives the distinct Red Eyes), four Laser warning receivers, 6 aerosol grenade discharging systems and a computerized control system. The Shtora-3 warns the tank's crew when the tank has been 'painted' by a weapon-guidance laser and allows the crew to slew the turret to face the threat. The third tier also includes the Active-Protections System Laser.




Mobility
Propulsion is provided by the V.20MS multi-fuel hybrid-electric engines. The multi-fuel engine alone produces 1,200hp. This might seem small compared to the weight of the tank, but the 2 other electric engines have a combined output of 1,000hp. The huge energy needed for the AI that controls pretty much everything and the electric engines are provided by a micro-fusion cell located in the engine bay.




Crew
The setup of the tank is unusal. The 3 man is located in front of the turret, driver in the middle, the gunner operator to his left and the commander to his right.

Also, this picture shows the only difference between the render and LDD pics. The tiles are replaced here with 1x2 cheese slopes that act as ERA. These protect the turret ring from jamming. As rendering took 6 hours, I didn’t want to redo it for such a small thing.


T(h)anks for viewing! I wanted to build something like the Armata for a long time and finally got around to it. If you liked the creation, a comment about it is greatly appreciated.

Quite the tank you've got there. I have to say, the back is just incredible, too many builds just leave a wall of bricks, but you put all kinds of neat looking things there.

Awesome tank! Heavyweight indeed. Very nice design and good use of parts. I agree with Luke, great colour scheme too :-)

Phenomenal design, I love that colour scheme. I'll echo Michael in saying great use of the ingots, it'd be awesome if LEGO released more colours of that part.

Quoting Alex Sonny Amazing. does the gun elevate? The sleeve around the edge of the turret makes it look like it oscilates.. I love the five roadwheels, but I think the front pokes out a bit too much, it may get stuck against obstacles :D
It elevates indeed (not the whole turret, only the gun)! 5 degree down and about 60 degrees up. You can see its connection in front of the gun sights, a little pin sticking out. This gun mount is completely my idea, and it is perfect. Allows great movement for the gun and in the extreme positions it leaves only a tiny gap. Btw, the sleeve is Explosive Reactive Armor. Yes, I noticed the overhang problem too. What do you mean by stuck? It simply pushes anything away with its combined 2,200hp engines. xD

You are right, seeing from a builder's aspect, it isn't much of a new thing, while the Tiger mech was super innovative. From a weapons designer's aspect, it is a wonderful killing machine.

It looks good, however I feel I've seen better from you. Mostly its due to the simple idea of the tank, I've never liked that kind of advanced turret design, and in general I don't think if Brian Kescenovitz made a tank with that kind of turret I would care much for it. However you did pull of making it very well, as its not exactly easy to make them, and the chassis is top notch. If you really plan on making this IRL good luck, in fact its not as expensive as you might think. Personally if I were you I would be trying to buy parts for the tiger 1 mech.

Commander Sylvan. Another knock out build. Those ingot shaped tiles for the reactive armor... perfect digital part selection. The over all shape is as always, spot on. Well done. Attack!

I whistled so long and hard after seeing the opening image that I nearly passed out :-/ Nice work! Unfortunately, I would imagine that a bunch of the parts aren't available IRL, but still, a 5/5!
