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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
