BE Challenger MBT by Lord-Malachi BE Challenger MBT by Lord-Malachi
For TGW and the Monthly Contest

Britannia felt her status as Most Powerful Armor in the World was slipping, so her designers hit the drawing board.

The Challenger features a 125mm Smoothbore main cannon. Loading is mechanically aided, and a stabilization feature allows for firing on the move.
Her secondary weapon is a .50 Caliber HMG on a flex mount with blast shield.

350mm sloped armor provides a solid defense from all but the heaviest calibers, and with the onset of rockets the turret roof has been armored as well.

Twin Diesel Turbines power the Challenger up to 40mph on road, 33mph off road with a max range of 300 miles before refueling. The optional fuel drums increase that to 530 miles while providing a possible explosive mounted to the turret.
Diesel turbines were chosen for their increased fuel efficiency, as well as their lower exhaust temperatures, which not only lowers their standout on thermal based optics, but it allows troops to use the rear of the tank as cover without exhaust burns.

The access hatches on the armor skirt allow quick repairs while keeping defense high.

And the over all slimmer profile from the Epitome provides a smaller target at range.

Finally, internal storage is provided for all 4 crew members to carry Roscram rifles.

Thanks go to Noah for giving me the ambition to do this, and a small handful of ideas came from him, and a handful of ideas I had, I chose not to use since he already had.

Created in PMG 0.7 for The Great War on Flickr as well as the Military Ground Vehicles contest on Flickr.

Thats an epic tank, best i've seen yet, hate to think about an AT rocket hitting the treads though.

Lord-Malachi Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yea that'd suck... I have yet to see a tank with fully armored treads though... I just assume there's a reason or else it'd be done.
And for the era this is supposed to be in (late 60's) most tanks didn't even have armor skirts at all, but those that did just covered the suspension like this.

I'm glad you like it though :D
