KT-X landship series by VoughtVindicator KT-X landship series by VoughtVindicator
These are the many giants that ended up being developped by me and :icondemonlordrazgriz: after the KT-1 Iron Mountain was created, inspired on the famous Ratte the germans tried to do. [link]

And from there on it was actually just a matter of going apeshit with size, lethality and uses, which ended in a whole array of different landships (or "Arms Forts" as I prefer to call them, like in AC4A) that barely need any external support.

From top to bottom there's the "Iron Mountain" superheavy tank, "Land Crab" superheavy amphibious tank, the "Povelitel" (mastermind) superheavy command/radar vehicle, the "Yezh" (Hedhegog) superheavy arsenal SAM tank, the "Gigabase" that combines the Povelitel and the Yezh, except it's amphibious, the Continental Siege Unit (credit goes 100% to DemoLord, who was inspired by the RA3 assault destroyer), followed by its upgraded variant known as Cabracan and finally the "Osminog" (Octopus) superheavy engineering vehicle, designed to keep all those monstrosities going on the battlefield.

Some of you might go all "The bigger they are, the harder they fall" and that, but let me remind you this isn't WWII. In modern warfare, it's "The bigger they are, the harder they hit"

EDIT: Added names. Also, scape belongs to Shipbucket.com

Well, these things are built with "modern" technology and use just real world weapons (S-300F, Tomahawks, 9M331, etc. I think the big one has Mk46 guns...) and systems while your own stuff appears to be from some super futuristic, gigantic space empire. I don't think we're talking the same terms lol...

I have also done my own big sci fi space empire but never uploaded anything of it to deviantart

I'm assuming the Commonwealth of Birkaine has very rocky soil, or else your landcruisers would easily run into the landcruiser's biggest foe: Rain.

I'm pretty sure that the biggest enemy of the landcruiser, and the particular reason these don't exist anymore, is being retconned out of existence for being retarded :P

I like it how you call it retarded then immediately hoist yourself with your own petard by thinking MSG invented the concept.

They're not used anyways, it was just a relic from the noob days (check the date)

MSG didn't invent the concept the UK did in the orwellian novels about land dreadnuaghts, MSG just made the damn things a house hold name for Nation States

Just stumbled upon this. AND I LOVE IT. The second- and third-lowest are my favorites. You took the hideously impractical concept of Land-battleships and made it not only awesome, but practical looking. Those landships look frakking awesome!

Any data or specs on the missiles you've pictured above them? or those honkin' great guns?

:iconvoughtvindicator:
VoughtVindicator Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The missiles are both the Kinshal and the S-300 complex, specifically the 40N6 missile as well as the 30N6E2 naval radar (or the 96L6E on the Povelitel). The turrets are either Mark 7 16", Type 98 18.1" guns or BL 14 inch Mk VII depending on which one you're speaking about.

As for CIWS, they're equipped with the Keshtan, AK-230 or the AK-630

We need a GREAT landmass for those things to run properly... maybe a universe like in Trigun anime series would suit

Actually, it's a ground carrier. According to the manga, it's described as a Kiev-class carrier mounted on tank tracks. I couldn't find any pics.

Not me, :icondemonlordrazgriz:

He was the one who came up with the original concept, I just added my own guns and launchers there.
