The People's Republic of Tyranny's Main Assault/Battle Tank
About this creation
Power is power, and this tank is the PRT's strongest! Sorry 005, sometimes the old ways are the best.
Recently, The Center for Military Intelligence (CMI) warned the PRT that their previous tank, the Tick ( http://mocpages.com/moc.php/361819 ), would have a hard time standing up against its more heavily armed counterparts. Scared into action, PRT's top brass pushed for the upgrading of the Tick. The result, however, was found to have enough differences in armor, firepower, chassis design, and appearance to make it it's own tank.
Powered by: Solar energy
Main weapon: a 9-stage coil-gun, and 4 AA/V missiles
Defenses: 12 flare/tear gas launchers
Service Record: N/A
While the Tick's turret was relatively open, the new design is completely enclosed, and has a MG turret on top, each able to rotate freely of one another.
The frontal armor and the 4 flare/tear gas launchers on the skirt are clearly similar to the Tick, however the Tora's tread skirts are farther forward, and there are 2 more launchers on either side.
This missile pod holds 4 Anti-Air/Vehicle (AA/V) Fire-And-Forget missiles. They allow for the Tora to operate as a SAM sight, as well as give it an edge against heavy enemy armor.
This radar dome is used to track and target aircraft and vehicles.
This MG turret used to hold the main gun, but is now equipped with a 50 cal. MG. The tank MG gunners have also been issued new, full face, air filtered helmets. This is due to reports that the tear gas grenades have been causing the gunners extreme discomfort whenever they advance through these clouds. In hindsight, this problem was obvious.
See that torso with arms? Proof that a whole minifig fits in there XD
A kitty with no claws.
Except for the addition of a recharging port and a gunner's hatch (found it XD), the back remains relatively the same.
Here we see some bums hitching a ride XD
The new skirts have added protection, allowing for the sides to take as much abuse as the front does! Flanking is no longer as serious a threat.
New tread design. Still simple, but it looks kooler XD
