Featuring a large, 115mm, rifled main cannon, the Epitome was designed to hit hard.
And with 300mm armor it\'s meant to take a beating.
All that firepower and armor however limit it to about 27mph off road, and about 35mph on road. Another slightly speed limiting factor is that the drive sprocket isn\'t perfectly in the rear (Directly beneath the rear access hatch) so as to better protect it from incoming fire. But it\'s horizontal location lowers the number of teeth in contact, which will lead to slippage in the case of difficult climbs.
Smokescreen grenade launchers are mounted on either side of the turret.
Also, at a loss of anti infantry defense, the tank\'s profile is slimmed by not including an MG mount. This makes it harder to pick out at range because it blends in flatter to the terrain.
To solve this, smaller, light tanks are in production to move in tandem with the Epitome.
