Mk-7 'Drake' Flame Tank
I hope you brought your fire suits and some burn cream, because the frogs have cranked tank-based incendiaries up to eleven.
About this creation
Historical Data:
Developed in the Monkey Wars for jungle clearance, the Mk-7 achieved infamy during the siege of Banalogna. The Frog general Hugo Croakzynski was laying siege to the Monkey Captial of Banalogna, Bologna, and put the surrounding jungle to the torch. Not satisfied with this miniscule patch of land, he proceeded to burn every inch of the planet under Monkey control. The resulting massacre has sinced been referred to as "Burning Bannanas Singed Bologna". After their incredible success (Depending on your side, of course) the Mk-7 was upgraded to Main Battle Tank status and is now the choice instrument of fiery slaughter because of not only how cheap it is to produce, but it's characteristic appearance.

Equipment:

The Mk-7 is a grav-lift vehicle designed for combat in almost any conditions. It's thick armor plating makes it cumbersome at best, but with an Inferno Cannon for a main weapon, and two Hell-storm cannons for sponsons, it's a piece of hardware one would do well to avoid altogether. After a devastating defeat a Sardine, the tanks were equipped with four sets of hull mounted launch boxes. The launchers can be fitted with either smoke canisters, monkey seeking missiles, or incendiary rounds. This particular vehicle is almost synonymous with atrocities commited by the Frog Empire. To the frogs, it's like superman, but made of metal and fire.

Operational Log:

We have recovered images of the Mk-7 operating in a jungle terrain. We are unsure of location, as pretty much every jungle ever to exist in our universe looks exactly the same.













Note: The only button that does anything useful is the yellow button, which fires the flamethrowers. The others play an assortment of Jonathan Coulton songs to entertain the frog pilots, as the tank is mostly A.I. driven. The pilots are there because you just can't program a computer to go on gleeful rampages. They'll rampage, but not gleefully.


These pictures don't truly demonstrate the combat effectiveness of these tanks, but the fact that they shoot streams of fire for long periods of time (usually in an area that consists of kindling) should be convincing enough. Remember folks, anything worth doing is overdoing, there's no kill like overkill, and the only way to ensure something is dead is to kill it with FIRE.

I suppose that works just as well, but then you have all those pesky ethical considerations to conisder. If you just blow everything up (or burn it), it's too late to worry about morality, as the deed has been done.

Who doesn't love fire? It's the perfect solution for any problem. Just like explosives...

"Remember folks, anything worth doing is overdoing, there's no kill like overkill, and the only way to ensure something is dead is to kill it with FIRE." Agreed... I LOVE FIRE.

Yes... Give in to your destructive urges... And the interlocked flame technique is one of my favorites. It helps convey the sense of... Flaming death.

@Flare: Well, frpgs have to wage omnicidal wars somehow, right? @Yuri: Thanks, although the 'Monkey Wars' thing isn't mine. I'm building off of Karf Oolhu's (http://www.flickr.com/photos/dragon55/) series of monkey/frog related builds. I do intend to carry on, but he deserves the credit. The storyline for this one is mine though. And remember, when gleefully rampaging be sure to burn EVERYTHING.

@John: Thanks! There's a disappointing shortage of Frogs on Mocpages. @Bernardo: That's exactly why burn cream was recommended.

No, it's certainly not my best. This was just me playing around with parts. I haven't done frogscale in quite awhile, so I'm trying to get back into that, as it tends to be smaller and less part consuming.

Maybe not your best work, but I DO love a BFT.
