A tank I made with my newly acquired and not-enough tank treads, resulting in my using some ordinary wheels to make the tank longer and bigger. It has a two-barrel gun design, as inspired by the Sabertooth Experimental tank made by builder Magnus Lauglo, a coaxial machine gun, a remote-controlled machine gun, 8 smoke launchers, and several other tidbits that I will point out when appropriate. To summarize the look, it's basically a Halo Wraith smacked onto Batman's Tumbler. And yes, it's impractically tall, but I think it looks cool anyways. Enjoy!

If you're wondering what's inside the cargo boxes at the back of the turret, it's chains, extra chain links, and magazines for the remote machine gun.
Driver's seat. You can see the tips of the engine gauge tiles I put in front of the steering wheel.
Why does it seem like everything I take a picture of seem so much more fatter and unimpressive?
With all the bulk ripped off, I even put in a six-turbine engine and parts of the three fuel tanks. I know, you're absolutely brimming with excitement.
Note the coaxial gun in between the two main guns.
The guns can point down.
And they can point up.
The remote gun can do the same up and down things too. Credited to Magnus Lauglo as well.
*gasp* Three people in a turret?!
Well I figured there would need to be at least two loaders for the guns and one commander, bringing the crew total to 4 if you include the driver.
I put in the firing handle for the coaxial gun as well as putting in a slathering of random control tiles. And no, that's not a single missile, it's three stacked on top of one another. Why put only 12 right behind the crew where they could ignite and blow up? I had no other room left where they could reach it.
Yes, it's really that dang tall. And yes, I did make the torso decal you see on the comparison minifig. Is this a logical tank design? Probably not. Is it fun to play around with? Oh yeah.
Well I often don't notice tanks, as their not my thing, but this one's hard to pass by! Some great detail work in addition to the nice parts usage and subtle color work. I may not appreciate tanks, but I can always appreciate a good MOC regardless of the subject - thanks for sharing!!!
