T10 Charioteer Tank by Keithwormwood T10 Charioteer Tank by Keithwormwood
The age of tank brigades storming across fields and deserts is over, ended by a glut of inexpensively equipped anti-tank soldiers and devastatingly precise attack helicopters. However, the tank still has its place protecting convoys and providing highly mobile artillery batteries. The T10 Charioteer, a design anonymously donated to the United Nations to aid in increasing global conflicts, has revitalized the proficiency of mechanized divisions.

Key Features:

Helmsman robotic torso commanded by a direct link to either the gunner or driver gives the crewman the impression of riding atop a vehicle completely under their control.

Roller detonates anti-armour mines before they are positioned under vulnerable components of the tank.

Fully automatic loading 130mm gun with a variety of task-specific rounds available.

160mm point of fire howitzer.

Additional boxes of reactive armour mounted on top of the tank's normal protection.

Those treads make me cry.

I guess people in that world no longer know how to calculate ground pressure...

So much ground pressure. Why is so much of the track length wasted? Also a bullet is cheaper than an infantryman, but that doesn't make infantry obsolete. Modern tanks have already proven capable of withstanding multiple hits from most infantry portable anti tank weapons, and protection is only going to increase as more hard kill countermeasures are developed, and implemented. Really the biggest threat to tanks on the modern battlefield isn't any weapon system, but tactics. Guerilla fighters rarely engage tanks directly. Instead they wait for the tanks to pass them by, then attack the inevitable convoy of unarmored trucks that are en route to resupply the tanks. A tank without fuel is a bunker, a bunker without ammunition is a pillbox, and pillboxes are much easier to deal with than tanks.

Neat design on this tank robot thing, I am quite curious where the gunner or driver sit when they drive that thing. Since its in the torso I am guessing somewhere in the chest area.

LOL! Killing the driver would be such an easy task for any sniper!

The scenario mentioned in the description- in which tanks are for the most part rendered obsolete- seems awfully believable. Gets me wondering- is this just a random design, or is it for any work or universe in particular?

It's a part of a persistent world I sort of ended forming in general with my art. Should be more things in the future tying them together a little clearly.
