Pamerian Main Battle Tank: 'Eithelfeld' by EumenesOfCardia Pamerian Main Battle Tank: 'Eithelfeld' by EumenesOfCardia
The Pamerian Main Battle Tank is designed to outclass all other armored vehicles.

Despite its size, the 1300 kW* Turbine engine gives it nominal battle speed in all terrain conditions.

Its sophisticated Fire-Control System allows the asynchronous operation of both rifled cannons while traveling at its top speed, against targets over a kilometer away. Each gun is also fitted with individual auto-loaders allowing almost 8 rounds/minute. These 165mm cannons can destroy any other mobile armour system in a single shot at distances over 2 km away. The rotary gun is completely automated allowing firing against missiles and rockets using the multitude of sensors atop the turret. Due to moral concerns, a crew member must operate the gun to fire on personnel or any other targets. It can fire up to 5500 rounds/minute.

It has a base of composite armour (similar to chobham) and reactive tiling throughout. The use of Faraday cages around all electronic equipment not only reinforces the hull but also prevents EMP disabling from Nuclear or similar devices. The tank also includes 18 concealed grenade launchers on the roof with 2 grenades per launcher. These fire a variety of grenades such as smoke,flares or chaff (countermeasures), or fragmentation (to prevent boarding).

Pameria is a nation in a future animated series I am starting up. I will post more information on that later.

Let me know what you think :)

* Note I have changed the picture to say "1300 kW" not "1300 W", my bad :P

Why are they even using rifled barrels? Is this designed by schmucks like 1969 Chinese engineers, upon analyzing destroyed Soviet T-62s, who then arrogantly and ignorantly thought the Soviets were hopelessly stupid for rifling the main gun? What kind of rounds will this tank use? It's no longer using APFSDS as a main means to disable enemy tanks? Cuz rifling would only make those kind of rounds wobble in mid air.

And Is there a logistics problem that they have to use rounds of a caliber smaller than they wanted to? Weird because if it is supposed to be an MBT, and they thought they needed that much firepower, they'd probably depend on these tanks quite a lot, warranting a development of an even bigger cannon. They obviously thought they need one, otherwise they wouldn't even want to increase firepower with dual barrels in the first place. What, is the enemy packing super-armored tanks?
Dual barrels makes for more complications and whatnot. Better to make one bigger barrel, if they can, that is. Even US Army today wants to make 140mm iirc but they figured there is no enemy that requires that level of firepower anyway, so why waste money on that now? So for the Pamerians, just what kind of monsters are they up against?


I like cool tanks, but the rest of the tank seems too realistically minded in the first place to give me any suspension of belief.

My MBPs could  that thing rear well the Large gun versions anyways other than that I like it.

I love your MBTs. Are you interested to help me develop a new modern war game. I need lots of MBTs

Illustration. Can you contact me on ravenworks2014@gmail.com.

Check out this model on Amazon. It's very close to what your trying to do. [link]

So it has 165mm guns? This makes how many rounds stored? 20?

The guns are loaded and fired from the gun laterally. There are 20 rounds in the turret (10 on each side) which the auto-loaders can use and 45 in the chassis which need to be manually fed into the turrets containers. The purpose of the dual cannon system is to maximize firing rate during a tank-to-tank engagement but this comes at the cost of reduced performance over the long-term.

You wanna store 45 of these in the chassis? Sure thing...

The only problem I can see might be with the main guns. Even if you mount the guns at 90 degree angles, I don't think you can mount them that close to each other.
