The MAR Tank

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.
-looks realistic.
-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.

    That doesn't show up in your comment counter or in people's email inboxes, now does it?  Besides, that was a few months old, why bother bringing it back up?

    You're saying it's old? You're the one that says necros aren't bad. You only say its old because you know it shows how you're a hypocrite.

    Since when do I say that?  And if I actually did say it, it's called "Changing your mind".

    First of all, you never did necro it, I'm asking why bother mentioning a 4 month old topic to prove your 100% incorrect point?  Stop trying to make yourself look smarter than me, you just look stupid when you try that.

    Again, it's called "CHANGING YOUR FREAKING MIND".
