I like the bat symbol on the front. And everything else, of course.

This is one epic build! Love the interior. Is there more of it? What's in the main turret for example?

Seriously, a tank with a nuclear missile silo and TWO-STORY bridge? We're all fucked unless the Hatredcopter shows up.
EDIT: What's behind that door off to the side of the upper bridge? Are there even more rooms in this thing? Is there a five-star restaurant in the back so the commander doesn't have to leave his tank for lunch break? A network of machine gun nests covering the entrance in case the thing gets boarded? A launch bay for normal-sized tanks?
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

The door is a nice touch. A lot of builders would've forgotten it or relied on the implication of its existence.

Hot diggity damn. This is amazing. NUCLEAR BOMBS DEAR LORD. The inside is awesome. If they made a Star Trek style show with a giant ass tank, this would be it. I love this so much.

I am happy that you all like this vehicle.

There is a small hatch on the left side of the hull. There is a corridor which connects the hatch and the command room. The door can be opened be pulling upwards. (i tried to make this thing a little playable for battles).

Unfortunately there is no interior inside the turret. It is almost full with bricks to counterweight the barrels.

Do you think that Hyperion belongs to Apocalypse Tank or SHDT category?

Yes.

It's one of the biggest damn tanks I've ever seen. I'm inclined to call it an Apocalypse tank.

I don't know if it has ground to space based weaponry or anything absurd like that but it hardly matters. It's a tank that qualifies as a SHIP. It looks like it could survive an orbital bombardment. It's obviously a command center, as well. I would feel weird about classing it as a mere SHDT.

Yeah, you can call it whatever you want. You currently carry the biggest stick.

Tha-
Its-
How-
What-

This is beautiful. A ship-sized tank with everything most ships don't have. If this thing sprouted rocket bootsters and flew across the field, I wouldnt be surprised. Nor would I rage, cry, curse, quit, or anything. This is no SHDT, this is a Ship Killing Apocalypse Tank. (or whatever you want to call it)


Dude, your army has been so rad. I wpuld love to see or particpate/getrekt in a Brikwar with you.

This is sooo rad on many levels! Let me enumerate the awesomeness:

- Color scheme is awesome and I love how the bricks build the paint job.
- Acceptable amount of dakka. There's never enough but achieving an acceptable level is epic.
- Interior is not only complete but totally rad.
- Love the print out for the big screen!
- Engine room is sweet.
- Bonus micro scale that looks cool too!

A good idea would be putting a heavy flat object in there and building around it, perhaps a few magnets or something.

By the way, am I the only one who thinks the control room is cooler than the tank itself?
