Commonwealth Defence Corporation / Orion Heavy Industries / Militech Systems “Crusader” M2A3X Main Battle Tank

M2A3X from the 1st Sabre Battalion, Royal Special Operations Armoured Regiment

Background

With design stages starting in the mid 2010s and production starting 2020, the Crusader is one of the most advanced main battle tanks in the world.
The Crusader was originally developed from Aurusea’s M1A1, and later M1A3 Abrams main battle tanks.
The Crusader has unparalleled defensive capabilities - 5 layer Active Protection Systems, advanced composite armour and turret arrowheads, providing 360° protection to the vehicle and crew.
The Crusader can fit any military, with a diverse range of upgrades, armour packages and variants. It can combat threats in nearly any environment.

Offensive/Defensive Suite

The man gun on the Crusader is a 130mm auto loading smoothbore cannon, providing a balance between size and velocity.

Secondary armament consists of a .50 cal M2 HMG on a ROWS mount, and a 7.62mm MG on a ROWS mount.

The Crusader has 5 layers of active protection, including Quick Kill APS which launches missiles to intercept incoming threats, Falcon APS which launches shotgun-like shells at incoming threats to the flanks of the MBT, Shotgun APS which is similar to Falcon, however it launches much larger shells from the front of the vehicle, AN/VLQ-10 Softkill Radar which detects, tracks and jams incoming threats, and the AN/VLQ-5 Multi-Threat Jammer which interferes with incoming threat tracking.

Other systems include a double drone storage compartment at the rear, which allows the crew to scout ahead for threats, datalink for better communication with other vehicles and even aircraft, mine detection equipment, and 2, 7 tube grenade launchers

    Good build, part count is a little crazy for my computer, but the detail is in point.

    If it didn’t have an evacuator, it’d need an overpressure system which I don’t want @Tabris

    @qwerty475 you should make a gun upgrade for the next variant maybe look into a gun without a bore evacuator
