TX-130 Super Saber-Class Fighter Tank – Alternate Build of 2 x 75342

Instructions are on rebrickable. https://rebrickable.com/.../tx-130-super-saber-class.../

 
The Republic Fighter Tank was a light repulsortank, used to provide infantry support, and engage enemy armor. The tank is very fast and agile, it was equipped with two sponson heavy laser cannons, and an open top turret.
 
The top gunner is usually the lowest-ranking trooper because he is exposed to the most hazardous battle conditions. This is a widespread complaint from the troopers, especially when the Trader Federations’ AAT has an enclosed top turret.
 
During war, you take the best of both sides and constantly improve and adapt to the new battle conditions. The TX-130 Super Sabre-Class Fighter Tank is designed with an enclosed top turret that houses a heavy laser cannon with a coaxial laser gun that has 360 degrees field of fire. The tank no longer needs to turn its whole body to engage enemies on its sides and back. The sponson heavy laser cannons are lowered by one brick from the official LEGO design to reduce the centre of gravity from the extra weight of the top turret.
 
The body of the tank is made wider and longer, to fit in an extra laser super charger coil. Bigger repulsor engines deliver more lift and power to drive the Super Saber-Class faster across the battlefield.
 
There are no more side gaps from the X-Wing Canopy piece in my design, I kept the back of the canopy as the front of the armoured hull as it’s the correct shape, while I have seen other designers flip the canopy around to close the gaps.
