Assault Tank by Shimmering-Sword Assault Tank by Shimmering-Sword
Another quick sketch. I lost my original little paper thumbnail sketch of this, but recent I had the idea to make a tank with the turret as big as the chassis :D So when the request of the night was tanks, this came out.
Heavy armor, huge auto cannons, anti tank missiles, and counter measures galore. This tank is designed to rumble through the urban combat environment and dish out serious damage to opposing tanks and mechs alike.
For clarification, I'm on the side that says just because mechs magically become viable doesn't mean tanks don't get to share in the same magic. This thing is a serious combatant and with thicker (more efficient) armor coverage than a mech of the same weight, face to face it has good odds of taking the win.

when you don't have the mobility of a mech, you just gotta pack more boom

tanks would probably be a bit more durable than mechs because they can't exactly fall over and they could still be a viable weapons platform even if their tracks are damaged or destroyed

That more depends you gets the first shot and where, like most battles. Mine does have a ton of anti armor missiles, though it's main guns look smaller than a banes.
