The Eurusian main battle tank.
About this creation
Kodiak 2A4 main battle tank
The Kodiak main battle tank is the principal combat tank and one of the most powerful ground vehicles in the Eurusian Armed Forces. It’s designed primarily for tank on tank action, something that became very clear for SPA T-220 crews during the Sitirian attack on Eurusia’s southern borders during “Operation Mongoose”. Able to knock out enemy vehicles at great ranges, the Kodiaks were huge assets to the defending Eurusian troops during the SPA’s invasion attempt, and they continue to be so in the more recent joint offensive operations with the UCF and U.S. forces.


The Kodiak’s design derives mainly from the Black Eagle MBT. Working together with Western tank designers and engineers, the Eurusian tank manufacturers at Omsk were able to cross-breed the Black Eagle tank with technology from modern Western MBTs combining the best of both worlds so to speak.


The Kodiak is a big tank, but thanks to lighter modern composite armour it retains a respectable power to weight ratio without sacrificing protection. The 52 litre V12 diesel engine gives the tank lots of power, allowing the big bear to maintain relatively good mobility in most terrains.


The main armament for the Kodiak is one 140mm smoothbore gun. It’s a monster of a gun, able to fire a variety of different ammunition, including HEAT, APFSDS (Sabot) and High Explosive rounds. The gun is fed by an autoloader, reducing the crew to three (commander, gunner and driver). During the siege of Novosibirsk, two battalions of Kodiaks took on the artillery role, bombarding SPA positions in the eastern part of the city with a hailstorm of high explosive rounds. Despite not being designed for the role as self propelled artillery, the big 140 mm HE shells proved very effective against the dug in SPA infantry forces.
The Kodiak has two types of secondary armament. First are two 7.62mm machine guns; one coaxial and one wire controlled at the commander’s hatch. The top mounted machine gun has an infrared camera sight, and can be controlled by the tank commander from safely inside the tank.
Second is the newly developed “Firestorm” system, which is a pair of retracting missile launchers at each side of the turret behind the crew compartment. These launchers can be fitted with four guided anti-armour missiles, but can also house free-flight rocket pods. This vastly improves the tank’s close combat capability. The top mounted machine gun is disabled and locked in the forward fixed position while the Firestorm system is armed, for safety reasons.
For defence, the Kodiak is equipped with “Kaktus” decoy launchers, and smoke grenade dispensers. Other defensive equipment can be added, such as an electronic jammer. To cross mine fields or clear mines for other vehicles or troops, the “bear paw” mine plow can be added to the tank.



Specification for Kodiak 2A4 main battle tank:


  • Crew: Commander, gunner, driver

  • Weight: 69.6 tons

  • Engine: 52 litre V12 multi-fuel engine

  • Top speed: 67 km/h (41 mph)

  • Armour: Composite armour, classified

  • Armament: One 140mm smoothbore main gun, one coaxial 7.62mm machine gun, one wire controlled 7.62mm machine gun at the commander’s hatch, guided anti-armour missiles or free-flight rocket pods in retracting launchers.

  • Operators: Army, SPEAR Commandos

  • Status: In service













  • The Kodiak usually carries two storage tanks at the back for replacement parts and maintenance equipment.





















    The powerful 140mm main gun packs a good punch.

    The "Firestorm" system's retracting launchers can carry four anti-armour missiles or free-flight rocket pods.

    For minor repairs, the engine can be reached through the top hatch.










    For a full overhaul or replacement the engine comes out through the back hatch. Credit to Magnus Lauglo for the idea.

    Firing high explosive shells, the Kodiak can take on the role as self propelled artillery. Here's a Kodiak outside Novosibirsk, bombarding SPA positions inside the city.

    Guys asking about tank treads: Bricklink are a good place to look, but link treads can be quite expensive there (you'll need a lot of them). The Bat-tank, TIE-Crawler and the new Indy Jungle Cutter are good official sets for treads.

Very nice! It looks great, and the details really add a lot to the overall look. I admire the fact that you managed to make it compact yet still functional and, i must say, very good-looking. Keep up the great work!

Beautiful tank, but a little over engineered for a war. Too beautiful to send into battle I fear! Great stuff though!

The Kodak looks much better than the Rhino, which is one of the many things that helps this build. I also think that without those two containers on the back, this might be only a 4.5/5 [I would of still given it a 5/5]. What can I say? Another great build.

Geez, the first thing I noticed was the sheer size of the thing, it must be twice the size of the DC tanks, the second thing I noticed was the pure awesomeness of the whole model. The colour scheme and the shape go hand in hand to make it a truly terrifying machine. Brilliant job.

Of all the Lego tanks I've seen, this is the first one I can remember being shown crushing a jeep. That shot was like the ice cream on top of my apple pie. Get out of the way or get flattened!

The one thing I don't like about this tank is that it utterly exceeds any attempt I've ever made and sinks my tank-making side into dispair... I've got to stop looking at your stuff, it makes me want to go on a building rampage and build a bunch of it. Excellent work, especially the weapons, suspention, those types of goodies. Awesome tank! -- -- Michael

WOW!!!!! This is AWESOME! Amazing! One reason why I like it so much, is because it is so streamlined, a lot of tanks that I've seen are boxy.
