>>12109250 It just looks so wrong. Like, they wanted to do a Guntank based off modern armor, but then they left that ancient head and for some reason decided to give it split treads when it's not a transforming Guntank at all. And I question all the recoil it's going to face.
>>12109615 Because unlike MBTs, Guntanks are designed as second line fire support or third line self-propelled artillery. They don't have the land mobility to be fast threats like MBTs fighting conventional forces.
Real life MBTs don't strafe fire either - doctrine says stop and shoot for best accuracy, although real battle sometimes necessitates firing on the move. Go watch some tank biathlons, and you'll see that firing accuracy on the move is awful. Sometimes they'll even miss static targets while holding still.
Ignore the dramatic storytelling, but focus on the way the tanks are fighting. Also, this:
>http://www.inetres.com/gp/military/cv/US_tank_doctrine.html >The desert offers excellent fields of fire. Tanks should be sited to take advantage of their long range and accuracy. Firing first and accurately are the most important considerations in desert operations. While it's specifically talking about the desert, this pretty much also applies to any other similar terrain (wide open spaces, etc). Tanks being deployed as "sited" usually means hidden and/or protected in a defensive position, ready to fire on any enemies that have been spotted. They're like snipers, and they generally function best in that way.
