Merkava Hover Tank by MrJumpManV4 Merkava Hover Tank by MrJumpManV4
This is my version of the Merkava MBT but more advanced.

Specs:
120mm Smooth-bore Cannon
50 Cal. Machine gun.
2x 7.62 controlled or automated machine guns with individual optics and controls.
4x Smoke silos carrying 8 pods each.
The chain net is pointless because i read that the reason they have them is to protect the back turret from anti-tank fire from personal, i made it a bit short.
Diamagnetic hover system allows for 45MPH travel on or off road.
Advanced alloyed armors (classified composition)

Sketchup 8 pro
Photoshop
Twilight Renderer

Model made by me,
Christian Salge

indeed it would be kinda funny to see it fire and push itself back and run over some innocent bystanders =p

but yea this was a request from some one so i dont really think hover tanks are the best concept out there...

ah this is my kind of war technology! great concept (not original but nothing is really original anyways), and ofcourse the composition/pose of the tank is great! all it needs to turn into a poster is a good render and some post process and bam u got urself in the game industry :D

Thanks, much appreciated. And yea this was a preliminary render, i was only doing it for some guy who requested it. My Advanced Merkava normal version has a much better render.
