Each one just pure awesomeness. The one with the fist takes the cake though. And love the quad leg design :)

Congratulations on solving the Twank quad layout. You've nailed the Twank's signature precarious aesthetic here despite the extra supports. I didn't think that would ever actually happen.

HELLO FRIENDS OF TWANKUS!

We are proud to announce a new line of products from Twanks LLC.(!)

After several months of strenuous Combat-Litigation, Twanks LLC. is now the sole owner and distributor of Tankies. That's right! The Off-Brand, low quality, degenerate frames riding on the coat tails of our intellectual properties finally succumbed to the armies of Barrister General Obedience Twankus (The Iron Attorney, himself!). All holdings, facilities, and employees of Tankies Brand belong to us!

The ugly brand you were right to hate is now officially licensed and vetted by Twanks LLC! Their manufacturing processes are now up to our rigid quality and safety standards, leaving you free to love them!

Thanks, I think! :lol: It is pretty amazing how much their character changes with the simple addition of worthwhile legs.

uhhh…. There have been plenty of 'Armed' Twanks as early as page 3 of this thread.

They're not as uncommon as you would think. :lol:

Due to a staffing issue in Twanks LLC's Research and Development Department, Twanks has decided to focus (temporarily!) on expanding the derivative Tankies line using the Employee-Thralls from our recent and very legal corporate acquisition.

Welcome patrons to the Museum of Historic Twanks!

Many of you are familiar with the long history of the Twankus family, so you shouldn't be surprised that the Universe's favorite frame has been around for a long time as well.

The earliest Twanks were very crude. In fact, they were little more than armed and armored boxes on legs. However, their thick plating was plenty to protect their jockey from the peasant militias they were tasked to subdue.

Once Twankus family engineers worked out the basics, their first goal was to fill in blind spots with as many guns as possible! Just imagine being cooped up in that can as your cockpit filled with smoke from the spent cartridges!

Mk. A Twank

Twank design improved, of course, leading to the many innovative designs you see in these halls! Here's a favorite among collectors, easily identified by its prominent sub-cannon.

As we step now into the Hall of Plunder, you'll see the embarrassing designs of Tankies Brand, a proud subsidiary of Twanks LLC!

This particularly advanced model of Tankie was just rolling off the factory floor when their headquarters fell! Glad our boys didn't have to face off against that!

I just spent way too much time away from this thread, feels great to rectify that!

Gotta love those wheelie feet, your take on it is amazing!
