Type-105 "Imperial Dragon" main battle tank

18 posts in this topic

I bought this to BrickFest 2004. It the larger cousin of the smaller Iron Dragon that Im making right now. The Imperial Dragon is supposed to be the super-sized version of it. The Iron Dragon will be in the "correct" tank-to-person/minifig scale. I based both tank designs off of this "super tank" that was reported by the reliable Defense Industry newsletter Janes.com around the middle of 2003. I've also been able to get a pic of a likely design that the Chinese will use for their new supertank from a Chinese military forum. According to Janes the new tank will have a 152mm cannon, compared to the M1A2 Abram's 125mm cannon. Considering the size of the barrel it will probably use tank-gun fired missiles. It is suspected that it will probably out-class the M1A2.

An older pic that better shows the MOC's similarity to the pic I based it off from. This was before I added the anti-optics defensive laser, and 35mm anti-aircraft gun, as well as change the color of the main gun.

I just made up the codename and designation number of the real tank. No information has come out yet of

what it'll be called.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Im actually restarting my work on my military theme this month. Thanks to Lego I finally got my wish... a set that has tank treads. This will enable me to buy tank treads in lower cost than before, meaning more (smaller) tanks will be rolling off the War Factory.

The T-105 actually took 170 tread links, which is 10 less than the 5 packets of 36 all together. Each packet costed me about $10.50 each at BrickLink over a year ago. Hopefully that new SW set will make their prices cheaper.

Here's pics some of the military vehicles I'll be turning into Lego MOCs.

As far as tanks go Im currently working on the T-98. After that... perhaps the UK's Challenger II, or pay tribute to my girl's homeland and build the Israeli Merkava Mk.3 tank.

Brickmaster... could you PLEASE stop spamming the boards. I don't want my Imperial Dragon tank MOC thread to get locked.

And just so you and everyone else knows what military MOCs I'll be bringing it'll be the Philippine EnH-03 attack helicopter, a US Tomahawk MLRS, and some other MOCs.
