About this creation
This MOC was featured on the Lego Universe Creation Lab at the time it was built, however, seeing that Lego Universe has come to an end, I have decided to re-upload this creation here onto MOCpages.

____________________________________________________________

The Machine gun nest's ability to withstand a tank rolling over it was the first step in our "Anti-T-22" project; the next step was to build a tank that could combat the T-22 LT directly, and thus, the Kona class battle-tank was designed. Light armor, medium speed, and a heavy gun classified this tank, overall, as a "MTD (Medium Tank Destoryer)" by Brick Federation standards at the time it was built.

Having a large track design limits the turret's ability to traverse properly, leaving only a forty degree turning radius, however, the turret is fully rotatable if the gun is elevated while turning. The tank's main armament is a 100mm high-volocity AT cannon. The tank's armor is 200mm frontaly, but only 50mm or less anywhere else; frontal armor is also highly angled, while the sides are protected by spaced armor.

Production workers were rather skeptical as to weather this tank could perform well against other enemy armor besides the T-22 LT, nevertheless, the tank was put into mass-production as is customary in the Brick Federation. Production was halted at 2,500 units when the new Pulverizer was being designed to replace the Kona class battle-tank as the overall "Light tank killer". While some units were dismantled to build Pulverizers, many are still sitting around in random military bases, and are still to be used in ture combat.
