#2781: Eggbox tank

Today’s invention is an outline for a new form of ultra survivable tank.

It consists of a cylindrical module for each crew member (green), as well as one for the main gun.

These modules (except for the sealed weapons modules) each contain the controls for all the main functions of the tank and are individually armoured (small spheres are much harder to crack open). They can rotate and vary their height using hydraulic rams (red). This allows the vehicle to go into low-profile or conning tower mode.

As well as enabling a tank to continue operating if one or more modules are damaged, each of them will have an ejection device(turquoise) with parachute, so that crew members can exit and disperse if their systems are broken or they themselves are injured.
