Minotaur IV main battle tank
Minotaur IV Main Battle Tank Post apocalyptic Yeah
About this creation
A tank I just recently finished built for all terrain combat. Built in the post-apocalyptic era for the expectation of all out war. It has a crew of three Driver, Gunner, and Machinegunner/spotter. Equipped with a 105mm 38 caliber dual purpose gun, this light and versatile tank can outgun most tanks of its kind. It can fight in cities with small streets because of it's narrow width and Maneuverability. It carries enough weapons for six people and is also equipped with clubs and other equipment related to riot control

The suspension on the treads of the Minotaur (Not amazing suspension but again I didn't know any better.


Storage area (rayguns! from brickarms), control panels and weapons


A view down the 105mm barrel of the turret


The back side of the turret (the yellow tubes are smoke/tear gas grenade launchers)


Bulldozer attachment that attaches to the end of the nose


Size comparison to my never finished halo hornet.(one of my favorite sci-fi vehicles of all time.)

Please rate or comment on this creation if you like it. I have spent a long time building and perfecting on this tank and it would mean a lot to me for someone to comment/rate it. and please check out my flickr page with some of my other creations at http://www.flickr.com/photos/51091273@N03/

This is a really cool tank! i like how you managed to keep it's profile low despite it's size :-) Very nice details and it's a cool idea with the suspension too.

Quoting Tyler TJM Well since you want me to look at this so badly, let us see, it's quite "akward". The turret needs to be put farther back and the chassis shortened. Personally just do away with the raised engine area and the storage compartments. Being that IRL all that stuff would have melted or be on fire... The turret looks very strange, I say make it taller. Finally the name "minotaur" not saying anything about you personally, but I've noticed quite a few people naming their vehicles "minotaur" after I released my IFV a few months ago (maybe I started a trend?). Anyway pretty good build, keep up the good work.
I wasn't too happy with the turrets position either and to me, the tank looks a bit thin and too long

Thanks for the advice. I didn't name my tank after yours although I have seen a lot of your work before and I think your tanks are pretty impressive

I like it! The very low profile is a great advantage in combat. I don't think the turret is too far forward. Look at the Russian T-34, the turret is at the front of the hull. Just looks like the engine is so massive that the turret had to be placed forward. A modern tank of this size would probably have at least a 120mm main gun. The lights on the front and the radar thing on the side of the turret look a bit out of place, but other than that I really like it!
