HTM-597 Heavy Tank "Minotaur"
Or a truck, depending on how you define a tank. The six wheels are bullet resistant, so they don't pop.
About this creation
The Minotaur tank has been in the service of the TIF since the original railgun was redesigned. The revised rail gun, which has a much higher firepower than the previous model, makes up the main turret of this vehicle. This tank is used well as a long-range mobile artillery unit, but is extremely effective in the heat of battle. In many campaigns against the T'ndari's main enemy, the Jackals, this tank model suffers little to no damage while flattening a well defended bunker or other fortification.

Armaments:
-Dual heavy rail cannons
-Two automated anti-personnel guns


A sight few people want to see. The cockpit, instead of having a physical window, has a very thin slit for the pilot to look through. When under fire, an armor plate can be brought down over it. When that happens, the pilot must rely on sensors.


The turret (as stated above) is made up of two heavy rail cannons. These cannons can fire either an explosive shell or an armor piercing round. In either case, the approximate velocity of the rounds when fired is 4-6 kilometers per second.


the turret can tilt up.


And swivel 360 degrees.


Greebles on the back.


I know it might be a bit silly, but there is in fact a communications antenae settled in the engine area.


One of two anti-personnel guns.


It can swivel and tilt up.


And down.


the cabin is extremely small compared to the rest of the body. There is only room for two people, the pilot and the gunner. At least they have leather seats.

It's pretty odd that Pick-A-Brick doesn't carry the hinge parts, but Bricklink does. I hope they start to soon. Nice job by the way. I see you always keep the same color sceme. Try mixing things up a bit.

Uh, wow. I totally was not expecting to see a tank out of you... ever. This is really nice, actually. It does kinda remind me of the Vector Gauss tank... I like the design of the body. and the turret is rather impressive. Im oh-so-confused as to how the mini-figs get out, but hey- nothing is perfect. I would suggest that you add a side profile picture, if you feel so inclined.
