The most enormous, gigantic and amazingly powerful tank ever

I made this tank, some time ago.
it proved to be highly swooshable.(which proved to be it's downfall)
i had loads of fun with it until I accidentaly made it crash into the wall at high speed.
it sent parts flying 4 meters from where it crashed.
then i rebuilt it, and played more carefully. [blush]

It also has an interior, and even a minifig inside to pilot it. :P

Well doh, would YOU call something "The most enormous, gigantic and amazingly powerful" if it were actually big?
how much fun is that,
and the thing worked great in a normal brikwars game, because i can easily rebuild it.
(or simply chuck the parts together midgame stating that my engineer "rebuilt it with some improvements")

Yes, actually, only because the only working tank I've got right now has a size rating of 10, and it's main gun is 11" long. I really need to frakking use it in a battle soon.

The entire thing(tank+barrel) is about as long as my indexfinger, so about 9 cm(or almost 4 inches)


also I do have larger vehicles, but they are either ugly, boring or just plain weird. Miniature tank is way cooler.

Actually I would. But I see what you mean.

That is definitely a good attribute for your "enormous" tank. 8)

at first i was like,
'ok, heres another small tank'

and then i saw the minifig crammed into that wee seat, and then i smiled.

Also, on the topic of 'big' tanks, i suggest you all look up the bolo's.
