HISTORY/BACKSTORY-
-Steadfast Industries was presented with the prospect of designing a tank with a good balance of speed, agility, armor, and firepower by the U.S. Military and accepted the challenge. They designed and built the first model (code-named Proto-Tank) and showcased it to the military. The liked what they saw and granted funding for 15 units to be produced for trial in actually military operations. The liked the easy to use mechanisms and the over-drive capability letting them get in and out of spots very quickly. Full scale production is set to take place in 2020 and will be in full use by 2022.

-Act. 2 unlocks the machine gun which is controlled with THROTTLE and ROLL.
-Act. 4-6 fire the explosive shells.
-Act. 7 is the Over-Drive in which you drive with PITCH and ROLL.

    @SteadfastContracting Tracks are nice, Front Spikes are perfect for Ramming through groups of enemies and impaling them XD, the cannons is massive. I'm sure it can blow a hole through some of the best armour's.

    Thanks, The controls were made that way so it could move more like a real tank would. If it needs more power, feel free to change the engine horsepower or use Act.7. I actually modded the engines so the tank would move this slow. I didn't want it to be crazy fast; I mean, it is still a tank.
    Sorry for the essay...

    Alright. If it needs more power, you can try the Act.7 extra power.

    It's pretty interesting! I've never made a tank before. The controls are a bit unorthodox though. And it may need a bit more power but I like where it's headed!@SteadfastContracting
