    Sounds like the Ferdinand of the 21st C...

    And no machine gun either so likely end up the same way... a dead white elephant...

    Looks like a howitzer close to Gwozdika in appearance...well in length not really overall appearance.

    Agreed... Or you could say it looks like a Type-99 with a turret mounted farther back, a hull that is lengthened, and a 152 mm that *was* glued on!

    Well, actually my imaginary tank does have a machine gun, and it has a 220mm cannon... a mix of a MBT and a heavy SPG.

    I would have to ask a few questions... like where the engine is.

    Front mounted engines are not good for IR signature and can create IR plumes over the frontal arc which degrades forward looking IR devices... not important for an artillery piece, but not so good for a tank.

    the main problem with tank/artillery combos is that something has to suffer... you want a small tank, but you also want heavy protection. For artillery, protection is rather less important while lots of big calibre ready to fire rounds are useful and most of the expensive optics for detecting and attacking enemy armour are redundant on artillery too.

    Old Russian SPH had direct fire anti armour rounds but only for self defence.

    It's in the middle. The turret is unmanned.

    Actually there is time I thought about the issues that you have pointed out. And I also thought about the very big open area in front of the turret, which is vulnerable against top-down attack.

    But then my thinking was plauged by the rule "coolness >>>> realistic".

    And I wonder if the engine is put in the front is there anyway to reduce the IR signature, or to transfer the heat to the rear.

    After all, mechanics and physics are not my strong points.

    This is a very big and assuming heavy conventional armour likely to be a very heavy vehicle.

    The engine required would need to be fairly powerful... we are really talking about a 2,000hp+ engine which would generate a very significant IR plume... sitting it in front of the turret places that IR plume in front of the IR optics of the turret... and heat up the front of the vehicle, making it much easier to spot from the front with IR sensors.

    BTW if the turret is unmanned and the engine is in the middle, that means the crew are in the front?

    I find artistic licence amusing... I have seen lots of "cartoon" assault rifles with the curved magazines bent the wrong way... bent back instead of curving forward...

    Even artistic drawings of the Sukhoi MFI contender with the forward swept wings can't help themselves making the rear facing pods on either side of the engines the same length when on the real aircraft they are not symmetrical...

    Well, it's just the law "looks cool >>>>>>>>>>> reality".

    There are fictional heavy MBT or heavy SPG with exposed... nuclear engine, just for the sake of looking cool in a very stupid way.

    Now this is how I imagine should be the future of russian ground attack aircraft:

    The  SU-55 SEMARGL
    It has forward swept wings for better low speed performance, has 2 engines from the Tu-160 with heat dispersing nacelles, state of the art composite and titanium armor capable of stopping 23mm AP shells and 30mm HE(cockpit glass can stop 12,7mm with ease), all aspect DIRCM , chaff, flares, inbuilt tail mounted jammer plus configuration for centerline mounted ECM pods. Redundant systems are everywhere.

    Unlike the Su-25, its designed to be more at home in destroying armor( 45mm revolver cannon firing 800-900rpm with tungsten core shells which carries 90 rounds)with ability to use vikhrs andf hermes, plus expanded anti-ship  and destruction of air defences capability with ability to carry  1 Onyx on the fuselage center, or 4 X-35, o 3 X-31, or 3 X-58. It also has 6, not 8 hardpoints for ground attack weapons but the payload is increased to 4250kg.

    All russian TV guided weapons can be used.

    Dont need a big rear.

    It looks good to me except for the choice of engines... I think 2 x 25 ton thrust engines would be a bit too much power and suck up too much fuel.

    Otherwise I looks fine to me.... perhaps a pusher turboprop engine?

    can I suggest you look here:

    I am sure you will like those... even stuff based on the hind...

    Trolling about Russia's cyborg troops





    Cost: 850 credits
    Armament: Miniature Tesla Coil, Tesla Katana

    Shock Trooper is one of Russia's elite cyborg units. It is the special units of the Experimental Technology sub-faction.

    Background:

    As the years passed, people's opinion about the strongest infantries in Russian Armed force took a drastic change for several reasons. The elite of the elite was no longer the famed Spetnaz, but became the Experimental Shock Division, the personal army of Chief Marshall Lý Thiện Trường, Director of the Experimental Technology Department.

    The Shock Division is a product of the most advanced, novel, and craziest technological breakthrough of the ETD. Basically these soldiers are cyborgs, that means they are half-human-half-machine. Thanks to the artificial organs, limbs and sensors, the Shock Trooper received a drastically increase of strength, fighting capability and survivability rate. Leaked information implies that, the inhuman abilities of Shock Trooper are actually enhanced by some sort of "magic potion" or "spiritual power" which only the Chief Marshall knows, but there is no evidences to support such wild claims yet.

    Due to the exotic nature of the project, Russian Shock Division only accepts volunteers, dead people, mortally wounded or terminally ill patients, and death-penalty criminals. Like the Chief Marshall himself said "Somebody who are crazy enough to join, have nothing to lose, or nobody care if they die. Somebody who are very identical to me."

    The Shock Trooper are the ones who handle the most dirty or dangerous, depends on situations, tasks and missions which even the most well-trained units do not have the guts to do. It is said that the Shock Troopers are responsible for the most unbelievable assasinations of many political figures in the world, including the cases when these assasinated people were being protected by some of the most well-trained units and the most advanced, safest defense systems. The first documented appearance of these cyborgs is, however, noted in a defensive mission, when a heavily outnumbered contingent of Shock Troopers successfully protect a secret base near Israel-Syrian borders, and then launched a couter-attack, virtually killed all the US-Israel troops in the Golan Heights and retreated with very few casualties.

    It is clear that there is no one can challenge the position of Russia's Experimental Shock Troopers as the most powerful and ruthless combat unit in the world. However, when the public usually saw these Shock Troopers as brainwashed, heartless and inhuman creatures, only a number of selected people know the truth is that many of the well-known Russian activitists, musical stars, celebrities... are actually Shock Troopers in disguise. Yes, although half of their bodies are machine, the Shock Troopers are human in heart. Who can stop them from having emotions or living a normal life ? Not to mention they are very ka-waii and loveable.

    The only case when they have to show their frightening is the battlefields.

    It just that their leader, the Chief Marshall Lý Thiện Trường has a habit of being scary in a very unneccessary way.

    Upgrades:
    ---Cyborg legs: increase 25% speed and gain the ability "Dash".
    ---Adaptive armor: increase the resistance against NBC and EMP weapons.

    My concept for a WW2 era soviet heavy destroyer leader that probably would've been built of the USSR wasn't invaded.
    Kishinev class-6 ships built 1941-44 I gave them probable names given the soviet ship naming system at the time.
    Kishinev
    Pskov
    Bishkek
    Dushanbe
    Lvov
    Irkutsk
    Tonnage: 3200t
    Speed:42 Knots
    Armor:45mm armor belt
             60mm bridge

    Armament:
    4x2 130mm/50 B2LM turrets
    4x2 76mm/55 39-K dual purpose turrets
    3x2 37mm 66-K AA turrets
    4x1 37mm 70-K AA turrets
    4x1 12,7mm DShK AA MGs
    2x2 12,7mm DShKM AA turrets
    2x5 533mm torpedo tubes with reloads
    40 depth charges
    4x1 BMB-1 depth charge throwers
    Any type of soviet mine

    Equipment: Fully equipped with Search, AA, and artillery Radar, Sonar, and paravans

    @Komissar: please correct me if I am wrong, but it is said that the formula of heavy ships and big guns was not very successful in the WWII due to the rise of aircraft carriers and submarine ? Question
