Tenebrae Imperium Tanks No.2 WIP by TenebraesRising Tenebrae Imperium Tanks No.2 WIP by TenebraesRising
Tenebrae Imperium Built Tanks and armored transport of the VTOL Hovercraft variant.

The Empire of Tenebrae is not known to use designs pioneered by other empires preferring to instead design their craft and tanks on their own. Creating war machines that other nations have yet to see or even fight on the battlefield.

Tenebrae Engineers and military Leaders, seeking to create war machines that would not be hindered by unstable environments and terrain. as well as to keep tenebrean military technology up to date. set out to create Craft of the same capability as similar craft produced and used by the union.

Armored hovercraft of Tank-like design and high maneuverability, These Craft were developed on Tenebraes Eris colony on the planetoid of the same name.
Capable of Traveling at speeds well exceeding 500 miles per hour in the airless vacuum of space, and over 150 miles per hour in a planets atmosphere. and are armed with Energy Charged Railgun projectile weaponry as tenebraes earlier land based Tanks.

The majority of these tanks are used off-world to patrol Tenebrean and joint operated GFA City stations and colonies.

From top to bottom.

DH1-150 "Moon-cracker Artillery tank"

DH2-230 "Armed Troop Carrier"

A reported 20 of these tanks were dispatched to planet Nolus in the holds of cruisers, An unknown amount more were Stolen by the Criminal Shaw when he stole one of Tenebraes Vimana Class Orbital Military base.

nice design. the thrusting parts look a bit fragile for a tank though but its awesome anyways.

Great detail on this I'm curious to know what is the significance of the cones protruding from the back? Engine propulsion nozzles?

of a sort yes. the engine systems they utilize require them to be present. they produce the frontal and reverse thrust.

And thank you.

neat, what sort of power plant do they use, that is if it's not classified.

Tenebrean Crystal turbine Engines, combined with A-Grav Thrust generators.
It operates largely on the manipulation of the Electromagnetic field around it.

Yes. when utilized correctly and made to defend the people of an empire. They can be called fine results!
And something tells us that the union may fight along side them quite soon actually.

I love the revamped hover-thruster design, with the angled jetports. Very much an improvement over your earlier hovertank designs.

Thankee.
I figured that Tenebrae needed to redesign their hovercraft and anti-Gravitational system designs.
These hover-pads are going to be used to a huge degree in upcoming tenebrean craft. ships, Weapons, Civilian hovercraft, cargo craft, Even their trains.
They're beginning to colonize space, and they realize that not every planet surface is ideal for land based craft. and in their orbital station rings. Its just not practical outside of the city stations.
