Introduction: The MAR Tank

Hi, I'm Mr. Muggle and this instructable shows you how to build an armored tank

MAR Tank stands for: Moving Armored Rocketlauncher Tank.
Pros:
-good range: 90 feet
-great fire power, it reminds me a lot of a real tank
-cannon can turn in all directions
-no motors v1 did have motors, this is v3 and I like it way better without the motors.
-not too many pieces, it's less than it looks like.
-really strong armor and body.
-looks realistic.
-really suitable for nagging brothers, etc

cons:
-The chain doesn't roll perfectly on smooth floor, I advice carpet or grass.
-The cannon has a block trigger because of limited space, and I wanted max performance.

    thanks, by the way it's pretty cool without the chains too (or two, I'm not sure how to spell it)
