Royal Arms Stal-XVI/B ''Dire Bjorn'' Heavy Tank by ChroniclesofMan Royal Arms Stal-XVI/B ''Dire Bjorn'' Heavy Tank by ChroniclesofMan
An update to the Bjørn, the Dire Bjørn was a modification made after the shipment of the first 1,000 tanks produced by Royal Arms. Equipped with a new, highly advanced long range, turret mated Sensor paired with a new, 220mm Hybrid Rifle. In addition, the Dire Bjørn was further supplemented with a turret mounted Flèche-II air-intercept missile imported from Leon. This system greatly improved the survivability of the large tank.

As always, if the first gun doesn't do the trick use a bigger gun.

That indeed looks better then the previous versions.

I have recently read a short essay on the future of the tank. Here is a link, I highly recommend it:

I especially liked the ideas for the drone tanks, the comments on medium tanks and the weight issue. Maybe you can get some inspiration out of it.

Wish it was a bit of a more realistic design for the future, but obviously this is not a hard sci-fi series at all. That being said, very very cool design

Are the missile launcher box fixed or can it move?

The addition of the missile launcher and sensors really turn this machine in something more scifi. Excellent work Josh, it will be quite something to fight/defend against

Man, this is hands down the biggest tank design iv ever seen that still manages to stay within the realm of practicality, anything bigger than this is just a building on treads.

Wow awesome!!! So how much does this tank weight? And I can sorta tell this is based on the King tiger tank? I love tanks too, here is one that I designed [link] it is a prototype of German self-propelled artillery.

Probably around 240-250 tons given the additions over the previous tank. Its a big girl. :D

Wow, that is huge! Considering the heaviest tank in existence is the Panzer VIII Maus which just weights 188 tones, so how thick is its armour?

Effective protection against standard arounds for the type of armor it uses is 1200mm turret, 1000mm hull.
