TANK CHALLENGE

>>This challenge is, most probably, the first tank challenge. I haven't seen one thus far so I thought it would be nice for this to be a firster. You gotta build a tank, wheeled tank, tank destroyer or self-propelled gun. It can be pretty much anything that's armored, has some sort of gun and moves on tracks or wheels :)

THE TANK CHALLENGE


*RULES*

1. No more than one entry per user.
2. Your build must have a minimum of 200 parts and a maximum of 1200. Any part hacks (such as adding hidden fuel tanks so as to increase the part count) are not allowed.
3. Wheeled tanks are allowed too.
4. Your entry must be a successor.
5. Deadline: 17th of November. Might take a while for me to rate all entries so be patient (school gets in the way, sorry)
6. While I do accept futuristic concepts, you are limited to using caterpillars/wheels.
7. No mods allowed. You can only use designer mods such as FT or Overload but nothing else (this, in particular, refers to piece mods).
8. You can use XML modding outside of the designer.
9. NO. HOVER. TANKS. Duh...
10. Your tank must be yours and only yours. Basically, it's gotta be original.

*RATING SYSTEM*

    @PhantomBladeCorp fr some reason i have problems with uploads over 700 parts, my tank is able to drive on my end but in the uploaded version it says the engines are not connected to the 2nd to last pair of wheels in the back of the tank. They are suppose to be.

    @PhantomBladeCorp can I just link my tank or upload it as unlisted kuz I initially made it as a stand alone no challenge required tank. then you issued your challenge and I wanted to through in my hat in the ring, however, I uploaded it already. how do you suggest I deal with this conundrum?

    @PhantomBladeCorp Hey phantom, I've uploaded a tank but it doesn't seem to want to be a successor to yours for some reason (aka I've little clue how that thing works and can't get it to work) will the tank still count as an entry? I would appreciate it and apologies for any inconvenience :/

    It's on my page labelled "AT-GP SuperTank mk.IIa" btw if it makes it easier :/
    Hope it still counts :)
