ABT, a vehicle that can ford rivers or land on beaches while still delivering heavy firepower. Technically an IFV.
About this creation
The latest and greatest development by the Baltic Army. The Amphibious Battle Tank. Not the same size or firepower as a true MBT, this vehicle is instead designated as an IFV. It has one of the most versatile weapons platforms out there. With interchangeable weapons packages of 2-4 at one time, and the ability to traverse not only land, but water as well.
Attached: 1 130 mm smooth or rifled main cannon. 1 50 cal machine gun.
optional: 1 double barreled TOW missile system. 1 30 mm cannon.

Here is the 30 mm cannon, it is detachable, like the TOW system.
And now the ABT drives away towards its next target.
Absolutely beautiful... the turret especially (I might have to steal that design, it's AWESOME!). I love it. And it would be the perfect IFV! I think you should adopt it as such instead.
And if that cannon is indeed smoothbore... you have possibilities up the wazoo!
