See this bad boy here? It could shoot out whatever Getter Gundamzinger Z's legs and it would be fucked!
But Getter Gundamzinger Z can fly at a millionty miles per second. It would just attack the tank from above where its armor is weakest, while making a monologue abot justice and evolution and the futility of war.
Just imagine this in Getter colours. Oddly enough, there's actually an official Bandai toy of Mazinger Z in Getter Robo colours for god knows what reason
That's why you don't use tanks, you goober.
Or even use something more modern (with missiles) that's still cheaper than a tank in terms of cost and fuel economy.
I'd like to see a tank take on pic related and win
Getter Gundamzinger Z's legs are made of Super Gundamium Alloy Z so your pea shooter bounces off harmlessly and is countered with a Getter Beam Rifle instantly vapourising your tin can and all the toy soldiers inside.
Wasn't supposed to be an example of exciting military action. Real life military history is far from boring, however. I love /m/ and /k/ so maybe that's part of it but I don't see how military is boring in the slightest.
Uh, dunno about Getter Gundamzinger Z, but this has two of the three.
There are two types of /m/ posters. Those who read Yokoyama and those who don't.
This is the second time we have had this thread.
There is truly no need for it. I don't understand the logic behind attempting to disparage an entire boards' existence whilst seemingly knowing and caring nothing for its subject matter. I don't know why it would've been so hard to just use /k/ instead where you could actually discuss tanks.
Tanks are tuna cans. Back to /k/ faggit
Battletech's been doing tanks for over 30 years. They've got some pretty badass ones...
...and some pretty lame ones.
>Or even use something more modern (with missiles) that's still cheaper than a tank in terms of cost and fuel economy.
Confirmed for having no idea what you are talking about. SPAAGs are terribly expensive, the Tunguska cost over $20 million a piece for instance.
Protip: It's a million times easier to destroy a tank's track than it is to destroy a mechs legs. Tanks throw their tracks all the time, and yet I have never seen a mechs legs just fall out of socket. http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=b99_1440661103
>Tanks are really bad at hitting things that can fly.
The T-80 in OP's image has a stabilized 12.7mm machine gun and its main gun can fire guided missiles and HE shells that explode at a pre-set range for an airburst effect.
Helicopters would want to be careful anywhere near it.

Protip: it's a million times easier to repair a tank's tracks than it is to repair a mech's legs.
If you want to be armored against anything more than small arms you have the choice of either crawling or having a ground pressure so high you sink into the ground as soon as you go off-road.
>Protip: it's a million times easier to repair a tank's tracks than it is to repair a mech's legs.
In Getter Robo, Ryoma and Musashi once repaired one of Getter Robo's limbs in the middle of a fight. So, no.
>it's a million times easier to repair a tank's tracks than it is to repair a mech's legs.
You don't repair legs, you break them off into your opponent's ass.
You got to be careful with that shit.
Closest thing to a Bolo that anime has. The Octo tanks from Venus Wars.
I am talking about in-universe reason .
IRL, it would be all about boring shit like remote controlled drones , automaton mobile missle lawnchairs.
Humanity will never inherit the stars.
>It could shoot out whatever Getter Gundamzinger Z's legs and it would be fucked!
No, it can't.
One shot from a T-80's 125mm main gun produces about 10 Megajoules of energy. That's barely enough to penetrate even contemporary composite armor. Do you think it stands a chance against technologies from further into the future?
Fuck off, troll. Never come back to this board. And for the rest, stop replying to this thread.
Still good enough when they gonna be fighting Toyota land cruiser with ZSU-23 for the next few hundred years.
