Looks very good :) Keep up the good work!
Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

Why do you think they invented hovertanks in the first place??? ;)

Sleek and cool design, Steve!

And remember the old saying...."No design could go wrong with a pair of Oerlikon" :)

Decided not to have top mounted weapons, I think they would block the commanders 360 sight and make the vehicle to tall. Went with a coaxial MG. Any other suggestions would be considered and greatly appreciated. Need camo color suggestions also.

They add height to modern vehicles, too, but are considered necessary, despite that big negative. However, ...

Where do you want it operating? Jungle = green / stripy greens & browns; Desert = tan / ochre / tan & ochre (or brown or both), possibly with some green blotches; Interstellar Colony = slate-grey / 2-or-more greys / slate-grey, mauve & dark-rust.
