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

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.

I see you found the crux of this design. Even with cushioning my physical simulations, I was unable to keep the cannon mounting system from bending under the load (at least if they are able to move individually). That being said, if the cannons were made of very light metal or plastic composite then it would be doable. The problem with spreading the cannons apart would be that it would either reduce the number of rounds in the turret that the auto-loaders use to the point where the dual-cannon system is no longer useful or I need to push the munitions back which reduces the already-precious hull space.

You don't need to store any rounds in the turret. Take the Murkava Mk IV, main weapon rounds are stored in individual fire-proof canisters in the body of the tank. The turret is "dry"; no active rounds are stored in it.

As for using plastics in the weapon, I think you will find that they could not take the heat of rapid fire.

I would think that 30cm to 45cm between the two guns would be enough room for the cannon breeches to clear each other even with todays guns.
