Please help me get this out there! I worked really hard on this: my first high end build


History

The Proggetto P. 75 Mod. 51 Serpente was a medium tank created for the Italian military. The project began around 1965 and continued to 1975, when modern tanks started making regular steel armor, no matter the thickness, obsolete. The designers of the tank attempted to keep the project afloat by upgrading the 105mm gun to an autoloaded 120mm gun (made by Czechoslovakian company Skoda) and by increasing the top speed to about 50 kph (with a BMW 1000hp engine) as well as increasing its armor and adding mesh armor. However, the project was scrapped, along with the prototypes.


Performance

The tank's performance was quite poor regarding traverse, though it had good turret rotation speed, gun depression, fire rate, and top speed, allowing it to operate fairly well from Italy’s mountainous terrain. These features were achieved using a fairly compact oscillating turret that allowed the designers to stack a fair amount of armor on the turret front, and a whole autoloader system that could move up and down.


Controls

WASD/roll-pitch for turning and movement
Yaw for turret rotate
VTOL for gun elevation/depression
V/Flares for smoke
Fire guns/spacebar for machine gun

    @girlsandpanzer Ik, just making sure you knew i wasn't copying. I do like to meet a WOT player, but I don't think we can platoon or anything cause if I'm not wrong, we live in different time zones, so different server client, lol

    @GSXGAMlNG I do try to pay attention to scale, like for any bits of armor that are sticking out, I try to scale to IRL scale (like the parts where the gun is mounted exactly 75mm thick).

    @Tabris @GSXGAMlNG I'm sorry about the bugs. I spent a fair amount of time trying to fix them so those must have been ones I didn't catch.

    @GSXGAMlNG The bedsprings are basically what gives the tank its character

    @GSXGAMlNG Thanks for the feedback, I am working on a new project which hopefully will be better quality, The turret ring has space for the crew, one gunner one commander, who sit beside the gun in the front of the turret ring (note the hatches). The turret itself carries an autoloader and ammo, so no space for crew. And lul yes, the tanks I forgot to put holes. I guess I may have overstated the pro thingy, but if it is actually pretty detailed for one of my builds, as I am not that great yet.
