Dreadnaught by PeterPrime Dreadnaught by PeterPrime
The lemurian supertank, Dreadnaught.

Acting as a front line command fortress and heavy siege/offensive monstrous hover tank.

The Dreadnaught is capable of transporting and storing numerous tanks and other armored vehicles and it also comes with 6 VTOL pads for air support.

Nothing can match it's firepower on the battlefield besides the gargantuan lemurian spider tank.

Used for large-scale offensives and for obliterating heavily fortified positions.

What kind of projectiles do they fire from those main cannons?

Huge cannon shells, although I will still have to work on that. I'll probably redesign this one later on.

Why a hover tank? Why not use treads? Treads would make much more sense on a scale like that. I like it, but I still think treads would make a lot more sense.

By the looks of that thing, it'd be far too heavy for treads to be practical. Makes more sense to have the weight not even be factor by keeping it off the ground, in my opinion.

You'd need some serious power to make a tank that big hover. Treads distribute weight over area very well, and would be more stable than a hover type. But that's going too much into the science part of science fiction. It looks awesome and somewhat feasible, and that's all that matters.

Let's be honest, if we were actually concerned with it being scientifically accurate, we'd be more concerned that it's as big as it is. But we're not because a tank the size of several apartment complexes is way too cool to not like.

My point exactly.

Because the Dreadnaught is considered a heavy command tank/carrier which can store numerous vehicles and weapons.
It needs to be more agile and couldn't let obstacles get in it's way, most notably water.
But what you say makes sense also, I just look at it as a mobile base rather then a tank.

I see. You do know that having multiple tread bases that have armored rotation points will alow it to be extremely agile, and only really deep water would be a problem for it at that point.

Yeah, I know. I've seen them turn with reversed tread rotations.

But I still thought this "hover"...or rather anti-gravitational field suits this monster better :)

Oh, anti-grav is a whole different story. Anti-grav fits. Hover doesn't, but anti-grav does.
