I've been modeling this tank based off some earlier concepts, and this is the third version of it, thus, the "Maxter Mk. III".

 

Front-left 45 view.

Close angle showing road wheels and drive sprocket.

 

Side Ortho, showing scale with a representative human reference.

High angle showing the gun elevated

Showing off dat gun depression tho.

 

Depresses -12 degrees over the front and sides. I'd love to play this tank if I could.

 

I'm posting this to see what you guys think... do you like the looks of it? Any suggestions? And I'm also looking to add some details to it (comms antennas, hatches for the crew, brush rigs and storage racks), any ideas other than that?

The tank looks like it would be a combo of the FV4202 (tier X version) front armor with the leo 1 speed. The turret looks really flimsy though being as small as it is

What counterbalances the turret and gun weight?

Interesting analysis. Admittedly I took inspiration from the Chieftain and other British MBTs. The tank is supposed to be relatively mobile but actually intensely armored- kind of an all-rounded unit. The turret being small is mostly due to the fact that it's unmanned. With the pictures, particularly the Ortho... the turret looks small, but relative to the hull volume, it's actually quite equally sized... probably close to that of a Pershing.

Behind the gun mount is a "Munitions Materializer". It's future tech... but basically, the tank fuses molecules from anything (in the case of nothing, it just sucks huge volumes of air in from the intakes on the side) to create the actual shells that the tank fires. This tech requires super-heavy steels, so there's quite a bit of weight behind the gun mount.

Possibly. NDA regulated.
