Bob Semple Tank

7,794 SuperSix  3 months ago
Auto Credit Based on SuperSix's Bob Semple

First off thank you to MrVaultech for modding the parts for me and helping with the build.

Background:
In 1944 when New Zealand needed to create its own tank because of the threat of Japanese invasion, Bob Semple stepped up to share his idea. He wanted to make an armored vehicle from a D8 Caterpillar similar to the Disston Six Ton. The original plan was to have a 40mm from the British in the turret but due to gun shortages so they had to put another Bren in it. They also wanted it to be made from local resources and not using American superstructures. Sadly it was never adopted and only 3 prototypes were made.

Controls:
1: Turret (VTOL: turret traverse Trim: gun elevation)
2-6: Bren guns (same controls)
Roll: Tank Traverse

Thank you.

    This is the most fearsome creation. One of these tanks could destroy the entire area 51 raid force in 5 seconds. This weapon of mass destruction was abandoned because it's creators couldn't handle the sheer amount of power simply emanating from this beast.
