M1A3 Abrams TUSK
This is my completed M1 Abrams tank with TUSK upgrade. Sorry for the lateness, the server update and the uploader not working delayed by upload. Don't forget to rate and comment.
About this creation
M1A3 Specs
Top Speed: 73 MPH
Weight: 43 Tons
Armor: Composite of Carbon Steel, Carbon Nanotubes, Kevlar, and Titanium Quatraboride (RPG Cage and Active Projectile Interceptor System {APIS} with TUSK)
Primary Armament: 125mm Rail-Assist (Railgun embedded in the barrel) Rifled cannon
Secondary Armament: M2 .50 cal HMG and Coaxial M240b LMG
Power Plant: Mk. 13 Micro Tokamak Fusion Reactor
Combat Range: Theoretically infinite
Crew: 4


Simple Side view with a minifig for scale.


Working suspension, still don't know who invented this method.


3/4 view, you can see the Coax. M240 (black screwdriver) and the APIS (the trophy system for COD players)


Full front view, the gap in the middle will be explained shortly.


3/4 rear view. The back panels can open to show the reactor, but I couldn't get a good picture.


Sowing off the features, The turret does 360 no problem, the hatches open, and the barrel can elevate and depress quite a bit.


Mine Plow! That is what the gap is for. It is not 100% done yet but I took a picture because it is BA. (Don't ask why some spikes are red)


Final parting shot, poor attempt at the standard tank artistic shot.


Expect updates every so often, such as a crew, improved mine plow, better TUSK, and ERA.

Thanks for viewing, please rate and comment.

Quoting Spencer "Hawkeye" Pearce Looks ready to steamroll some Nod resistance! Question: is there a tutorial for that suspension anywhere?
The best tutorial is called "How To Build Tank Suspension". It is the same method as I used, simple and effective.

Quoting Nick Barrett This is high quality building, deserves more recognition. Looks very accurate and kudos on the suspension - great work.
Thank you. I did not invent the suspension though, I'm pretty sure it was Lego 4 Life. Also I saw your B-2, that is epic!
