MMBT-42 ''Leatherneck'' by ScrewfaceRomeo MMBT-42 ''Leatherneck'' by ScrewfaceRomeo
Heavily armored, and more heavily armed with it's 120mm smooth-bore gun, the Leatherneck is typically employed for tank-on-tank combat, or for assaulting fortifications. It's true stats are classified, but top speed is imagined to be roughly 70 MPH, while weighing in at around 63 short tons. Like the Loggerhead, it can fire Silver Arrow rockets, but can also load canister shot (think tank-sized shotgun) for anti-personnel or urban environment, HEAP saboted rounds for anti-tank, and various other munitions.

Very nice, lots of good fluff, relatively compact, fast, lighter than an M1A2, not too many doodads, well sloped armor, this is one of the best tank designs I've seen on DA.

Is reactive armor standard? how about environmental isolation equipment (wouldn't want to glow) and ghost flames are optional...right?

Actually ERA has become increasingly useless, ELECTRO-reactive armor is going to be the 'new thing' in armor design with the added bonus of being able to be used multiple times.

Yeah, learning all about tandem-charges and how they ignore ERA.
I still would like to see armour proof against APFSDS rounds.

I would use it to make an ifv of immense durability,like a Bradly on steroids.

Actually armaments have been stagnant enough that armor is finally catching up. When 3D printers and advanced computer modeling comes along... may god help us all.

Armor is modular, ERA kits can be applied in the field if necessary, however given that many modern AT missiles use a tandem charge which easily defeats this type of armor it is only useful when fighting less developed countries. And, yes, CBRN protection is standard, as on all New Cordian armored vehicles.

So the modular armor is more effective ERA? why wouldn't the ERA blast, especially if using the rare Solid Projectile Dispersion type (like large claymores on the tank)detonate both charges in the AT missile? I'm just sayin' extra protection couldn't hurt, right?

No, it's capable of swapping between ERA and traditional heavy armor. As for that, the tandem charge actually detonates the reactive armor itself, rendering it useless against the second charge

What I meant is that this reactive armor actually throws out ball bearings at the first impact,which would hopefully detonate the second munition, lessening damage to the underlying conventional armor of the tank. I really do like your design, I don't intend to be annoying! I just think this type of armor would be a useful piece of equipment...

...Is that a real thing? Because it sounds very vulnerable to traditional sabot munitions.

Yeah its real, and yes u can have "heavy armour" and ERA.. And yes u should actually have both.. Regardless of who or what ur fighting. Nowadays active protective systems (like the the IDF Trophy) are becoming widely implemented. In the end there's no armour that can stop a proper AT missile, u actually have to shoot it down or disturb its flight path. Ur armour is actually just there to stop everything else.

I'm talking specifically about the "Solid Projectile Dispersion type" he mentioned. AFAIK, ERA by definition uses explosive force to disrupt the Munroe jet created by modern shaped charge munitions, or the trajectory/momentum of KE penetrators.

It is usually a metal/explosive/metal sandwich. Ball bearings would be stopped by the exterior armor layer.
