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.
-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.
-really suitable for nagging brothers, etc
-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.
