Well actually i want to improve my tank track rigging ability by adding SUSPENSION..yes finally i CAN do that
But then my mind got carried over... and i realize my forces also need light multipurpose combat vehicle..in the line of British Scimitar and her family like Alvis Scorpion, Stormer and Samaritan. For role of reconnaisance, frontline ambulance and of course to provide air-transportable and droppable fire support light enough to be carried by either Mi-26 helicopter or my own Mysteria Hawkeye Compound Aircraft (in the nutshell.. she is a VTOL C-130 Hercules).
Honestly i do not know whether hydropneumatic suspension would be any benefit for this already light and small vehicle or just make the vehicle too complex and overpriced with little combat importance.. but hey.. why worry about that when ppl may think that little tank that can "kneel" is cool XD
Gavial is our light combat multipurpose vehicle.. She's designed mainly as IFV to combat school bullies as well as any potential anti-tank asset of them, clearing the road form small fry for larger Defender II Main Battle Tank which become her sister in law as she shared scaled down mechanics of her from engine sets till suspensions.
Her Feniks RCWS (Remote Controlled Weapon System) is equipped with 35mm hi-velocity autocannon and mountings for multipurpose "Solva" missile. Solva is a Laser beam rider missile similar to Russian Vikhr, capable of penetrating heavy armor of Tanks or buildings. In addition Solva can also be equipped with thermobaric warhead to neutralize garrisoned buildings or Bullies whose Ki-power cannot be suppressed by our Ki-Jamming system. The missile is supersonic design with high ISP booster and able to reach Mach 3 as soon as it launched, practically reduce response time for bullies which may avoid small arms fire. Feniks is designed with maximum range of 4000 m and able to travel 3000 m in one second.
Feniks is equipped with advanced sighting system with 360 degrees rotatable panoramic sights for commander. Smaller cameras also installed to provide 360 degrees round the clock situational awareness.
The Feniks RCWS is totally unmanned. All three crews are sit within the hull and gaining 360 degrees situational awareness by Television camera. Manual sights however are provided but having of limited field of vision. Armor protection of Gavial is based on composite steel-ceramic similar as found in Russian Ka-52 attack helicopter. The armor system is capable of withstand 30 mm AP round.
Engine is a turboelectric type with diesel engine driving turbogenerator and permanent magnet motor to drive the vehicle.
An Auxilliary Li-Ion Battery is also provided for very silent running.
Well that's all more to come (including colored version of this) later
