The Siler gets a paint job

The Siler has now become my M17A4 heavy tank. The 200mm mass driver can be used as a direct fire weapon or an indirect fire weapon.

 

The M17 was used by both the USMC and the US Army filling a role of both direct fire and indirect. It’s size limited it’s deployment but each battalion usually fielded a platoon of three. The tanks provided close support for assaulting troops using the 200mm mass driver and it’s variable role ammunition. Point Defence was covered by twin rotary 20mm rapid fire mass drivers, its thick ceramic composite skin could defeat most anti tank weapons but its weak spot was the engine cooling vents in the rear. The natural enemy of the M17 was the 120mm hyper velocity mass driver which could punch holes in the side and rear at medium range and the front at close.

Tank Lineup

The Siler, Merka and the GZG hover tank lined up. The Siler is an absolutely spectacular model.


The GZG hover tank has now become an infantry support light tank similar to the British scorpion. The Siler will be my ultra heavy assault tank, tasked with breaking through enemy defended with it’s 200mm mass driver serving a dual direct and indirect fire weapon. The Merka is a true tank hunter, ultra fast and packing a 120 mm high velocity mass driver.
