Fluttershy's Siege Tank by Foxi-5 Fluttershy's Siege Tank by Foxi-5
Just a very, very quick, lo-resolution speedy. Even a hastily done backdrop too. Tried to add in a panicking Gilda, but it never worked out in the comedy department, so I dropped it.

Anyway, this is my first tank I've ever really drawn. So is it passable???

It's been named the 'Peacemaker'

With thanks to :iconpallon-o-death: for christening it.

Apologies for the lack of ponies,, I couldn't seem to add them in which felt right... Plus I've got to do some real work over the next few days... Poop! Oh well.

Anyway, Fluttershy is off to see Gilda to patch up their differences, friendship cupcake in hoof... However Rainbow Dash spray painted "No Gilda's" on the side of the machine. And with Gilda's eagle-eye vision, that will be the first thing she sees, before the severe heart pulse, mild shock and eternal fear of Fluttershy...

EDIT:

Reason for shape and design? -> I wanted a tank that could potentially take down a mech. 2 big guns to punch through armour and a bus load of missiles to do further injury. In other words, a rapid firing machine capable of delivering a whole lot of hurt in a short round. For this, the tank had to be huge! Tanks can't dodge as easily as a running mech. So primary impact is essential.... Plus it could take down fortress.... :) Gees, makes me wonder what Celestia's tank will look like then......

Do you see Gilda's house over there?

No?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

Question can the tank deploy itself into siege mode?

In what way exactly? Like stablization, or rapid fire or something else?

The siege mode I'm taking about is like in starcraft, the tank becomes stationary but it's range increases and the firepower increases ten fold.

Oh. Nah.. Siege in this tanks sense is it's ability to lay siege to a town for example. It carries a lot of ammo and is well stocked for prolonged assaults against non mobile structures. Aside from that, it has a fast fire ability in the main guns to assault mecha, coupled with a barrage of missiles for extra pain.

A game called "Under Fire" is using your picture in it's advertising.  It popped up on my feed as a sponsored add. Just wanted to make sure you knew.
