Guyomartand I know Lotion is back but not Nec and Edwer so that’s cool.

Also please try your best not to quote suppressed posts. We don’t want being seen via other methods. :)

I shall unite the people under the common goal to fight for the freedom of speech in the north pacific!

Ah, when I quoted it, it was not suppressed at the time. Oh well, I'll just edit it out quickly.

Ballistikov I’m frankly done with you trying to act like a wise guy and harassing Nessie. You’re going to comply WITH our RULES or you’ll be banned. Proposing extremist ideas are not a good thing.

Also YOU’RE going to take down THIS dispatch. This is our ONLY and FINAL warning.

i am simply starting a political party, why do you seek to suppress the voices of the people?

Buy it while supplies last!

StrangeReal is a dangerous place. Wars break out all the time, and you never quite know when Friently is gonna get fed up with it all. So, it never hurts to be prepared, just in cause your neighbors are getting a little too interested in you. East Supple Lund has been revamping its military, developing many shiny new toys to play with. However, their main battle tanks, while pretty cool, could be better. So, they've teamed up with The Austro Germanic Union to create a new kind of tank!


The new tank, in AGU army markings

Called the "Universal Main Battle Tank" in AGU service and simply the "P1 Mouse" in ESL service, this new generation of tank will be able to combat a wide variety of threats, allowing it to remain an effective fighting vehicle into the foreseeable future. As it was co-developed between ESL and AGU, different parts of the tank are made in each country.

ESL was put in charge of the guns, and boy did they really do it this time! Main armament is either a 120mm cannon, or a 140mm "Long Thom" cannon, allowing the tank to engage targets at long ranges, before the enemy can even think of responding. The 140mm cannon has seen penetration increase of 69%, and a range increase of 66% over contemporary 120mm designs.
Secondary armament includes a fully retractable, remotely operated 20mm autocannon, as well as 2 co-axial "50 caliber machine guns" for the ESL variant or 2 13mm machine guns for the AGU variant. The tank can also fit anywhere from 8 to 16 "VAPE" smoke grenade launchers, allowing the vehicle to disappear into those "fat clouds of smoke". Vision is provided by ESL "ICUP" cameras, allowing the crew to have an unobstructed 360 degree view of the battlefield.


Early concept art for the tanks 120mm and 140mm cannon systems.

The hull of the tank is designed in AGU, using the latest composite armor to protect the vehicle. The composition of the armor itself is classified, although it is purportedly capable of defeating up to 1,200mm of HEAT penetration. Power is provided by a 1,500 Horsepower Daimler-Benz Diesel Engine, with a Renk HSWL354 Transmission. This allows the tank to reach speeds of up to 69 km an hour, despite the vehicle clocking in at around 50 tons. It's 1,300 liter fuel capacity allows the tank an operational radius of 644 kilometers, enabling it to traverse large swatch of land before refueling. One interesting part of the vehicle is its suspension. Hydropneumatically powered, the tank can be lowered to just 4 inches off the ground, giving the already short vehicle an even lower profile. Both ESL and AGU have developed supplement armor kits for the tank. ERA, side skirt armor and belly armor are just a few of the options available for up-armoring the tank.


The tank's 1,500 horsepower, diesel engine

The turret itself is built in ESL, but the internal parts are manufactured in AGU. Each tank comes standard with an auto-loader and laser rangefinder from AGU. Each tank comes complete with NBC protection, including a Drager NBC overpressurization system that provides up to 5 millibars of over-pressure inside the vehicle. ESL also coats the crew compartment in 20 cm of polythene, shielding the crew from neutron radiation. The vehicle is also hardened against electromagnetic pulses. AGU Blowout panels on top of the turret help to increase crew survivability, while fire suppression is provided by the ESL M2 "Cold One" system, allowing you to crack one open with the boys anytime, worry free!

While the tank is relatively new, several variants of it are currently undergoing trials for possible later use. They include the following at the moment:


Currently in development, this variant of the tank sports a 152mm combination cannon/missile launcher, allowing it to fire both shells and anti-tank missiles. Similar to Nurth supple lund's tanks, this weapon is still in development, as it is currently to unreliable for field use


This variant spots a pair of 120mm guns in a shortened chassis. Based off of old tank destroyer designs, this variant is still in development due to issues with having 2 guns linked to a single fire control

Production of the vehicle has started immediately, but with a 5 million DogeCoin price tag, excellence don't come cheap! Therefore, it is hoped to get this tank exported to as many as our friends and allies as possible!

Note: Some “East Supple Lundian” parts may be built in either West supple lund or Nurth supple lund. Nonetheless, they are made to the highest standards and are nearly indistinguishable from “genuine” ESL parts.

Orders:
East Supple Lund-2,000 units over 2 years
The Austro Germanic Union-12,000 units over 8 years
Anglo-Saxon Commonwealth-order CANCELLED, 20 units delivered
Cryobia-120 units in 1 week

Please, everyone: I don’t want anyone getting in trouble so try and ignore Ball to avoid any consequences. He will be dealt with once Nessie comes online.

Is the Universal Tank based on the Panzer?

Ballistikov you're not stating anything, you're simply flaming the chat.

As Dinoium said, cease this argument and move along.

Well it’s actually an MBT-70 (well, the German KPz-70 variant).
The US and Germany were gonna use this during the Cold War, but it was too expensive so they developed the Abrams and Leopard instead

No need to bang your head. It’s not your fault whatsoever. If you want to not being annoyed, feel free to step back for a few minutes and cool down. We don’t want people guilty for things they didn’t do. D:

so big tank it is

Messi or Ronaldo? Who's better?

Actually, it’s only 8 feet tall at its highest point, the 20mm autocannon, and that can be retracted, giving the tank a height of 6 feet
It does 69 km despite being 50 tons, thanks to the engine and suspension
