TB-70 "Daybreaker" Frame Hunter Tank

The TB-70 "Daybreaker" is the flagship of the armored division of the Mistarille Dawn. The Daybreaker is a specialized Mobile Frame Hunter tank, and comes armed with heavy armor, electromagnetic hovertreads, two side sponsons hiding two twin autolasers and its signature "Skyshear" rapid Rail laser, capable of launching heavy shots far down the line, or burst shots at closer ranges. Piloted by a crew of 2-3 (shown), the Daybreaker is a formidable force on the frontlines.

I like the design of this a lot, like a WWI tank sci-fi'd up with a huge Railcannon of a cherry on top. Very cool indeed.

Thanks so much! The WW1 tank look with high front treads was totally the look I was trying to capture and futurize (the tread shape is actually where I started), that and a slight nod to W40K's Space Marine Predator. I'm so glad someone finally saw it.

While I like what you've done here I find your other creations to be simply amazing. I was just browsing through your flickr pics and drooling at the awesomeness.

Hah! Thank you. I've only just started with this MFZ stuff. I just posted the main force of work I've done on my flickr photostream over in the frame designs.

Cool! The fold-away guns are great!

I like how you've used shapes like the upside-down arch to suggest the parts involved and get the profile you're looking for. I also like the space-opera technobabble name "rail laser". :) The infantry are pretty cool too, with the tiles suggesting armor.

That shape actually is where the frame started. It's what inspired me. I saw the tread shape in it, and I just had to build a tank around it at that point. Because of it having to be upside down, I had to make a lot of sketchy connections to make this work. I'm happy with it though, and I think that's what matters in the end.

I know I've seen this before, but I must have neglected to comment on it :oops:
I've been looking into making a tank, I wish I had seen such well done sponsons :p
I do love the look and certainly noticed the 40k influence immediately ;) I made a tank loosely based on the Bane Blade, but of course it's really big and just overall a mess. I should probably go with the squat-er look with sponsons
