M7-AP1/A1 Eagle AMBT

4,939 TheSpartan  1.3 years ago

First off, I'd like to say that this was an absolute pain in the $!? to build, it's not too mobile-friendly, and I can definitely say that this is going to be hard to top, personally.

now, on to the actual tonk


Description

The M7-AP1/A1 Eagle is a very similar concept design to that of MrVaultech's Zaneta tank in the sense of optics, general design, and the full interior. It features enough armament to put an Abrams to shame, and it can also double as an MBT, as the off-road capabilities have been greatly enhanced, the main cannon is bigger and better, and it is a ton more powerful than the previous CDTs because of the new lightweight Composite Armor. Not to mention that it's a ?!$@ ton lighter than the M1 at only 25,500 pounds.


Specifications

Weight overall ~ 25,500 Pounds
Maximum Speed ~ 140+ knots (155+MPH)
Maximum Stable Turning Speed ~ 45MPH
Maximum hull traversal rate ~ Approximately 60 degrees per second
Maximum turret traversal rate ~ Approximately 45 degrees per second (40% power)


Armament

1x FalCOM Mk IV(D Model) 138mm Smooth-bore cannon
100x Mk LVII HE Light Artillery shells, 574-grain, 3,600 FPS
1x 12.5mm Automated cannon
(Infinity)x 12.5mm Ammunition, Tungsten-tipped


Performance

Speed ~ 10/10
Maneuverability ~ 7/10
Offroad ~ 7/10
NASCAR-style Racing ~ 4/10
Drift Racing ~ 3/10
Armor ~ 8/10
Defense (Passive) ~ 6/10
Defense (Aggressive) ~ 5/10
All-around visibility ~ 9/10


Controls

Group 1: Activates the Main Turret, VTOL and Trim to turn (Use lightly, turret has some differences compared to your average turret ;D )
Group 2: Activates the Automated 12.5mm turret, FireGuns shoots the thing
Pitch: Forward/Reverse
Roll: Left/Right
Brake: self explanatory
And that's all of the controls!


Notes

~ I was unable to successfully incorporate a way to keep the turret from turning with the hull.
~ I forgot to change the main gun name.
~ Suspension works like a beauty, but may shudder when the vehicle is static.
~ Was nearly unable to upload from the sheer amount of parts (This is my biggest build ever in the sense of part-count).
~ I wanted to add in a bit of FT jazz but I lack the knowledge.
- I forgot to remove the turning angle for the spare tire on the back.
- The turret controls can be a little hard to use because of their sensitivity.

Again, my apologies for anything I may have missed, but again, this build nearly prevented me from uploading because it's so large in parts. Please give your feedback so that I may further improve my builds, and don't forget to share this awesome tank with your friends!

    Oh wow, wasn't expecting this!
    I'd for sure give it an 8/10 to the Žaneta, but for sure the Eagle is it's own spiritual successor.

    Best way is to take it apart, but I make a gun that is perfectly balanced around the pivot point, or the fulcrum, then add a weightless gyro to balance it out. Simplest gyro stabilized gun.

    rlly epic not gonna lie.
    I like the gun stabilizer a lot, but the turret controls are hard to use :(
    I can't believe it has a inside-turret cam!

    (btw the back wheel shouldn't steer)

    Makes me wish I had made it a successor to give you more credit! There's a reason I called this my best!

    Heh, it's the little things, but it's the least seeing someone enjoyed something I made so much to make a successor. Definitely made my past few months to say the least.

    @MrVaultech How similar would you rate this to the Zaneta?
