Design Notes - Whoever hasn't done this design in some form - the compact with the ATG - hasn't been playing long enough. I put in the nasty APFSDS ammo in and had to cut this sucker down to anything that could fit into the price range. 207 pts armor with a SWC directed ATG ain't too shabby.

Speaking of Everybody Does This. I saw a nice version here at AADA 27.
James Beecher's "Metal Dung Beetle":
Compact, extra-heavy chassis, heavy suspension, 100 cid turbocharged gas engine, 4 gallon racing tank (full), 4 PR radial tires, driver (w/body armor), ATG front w/HESH ammo and SWC. Sloped metal/ plastic armor: F 18/35, L 2/35, R 2/35, B2/25, T 1/0, U 2/12, 10 points CA around each of driver, engine, and ATG, 8 points CA around gas tank. Acceleration 5, Top Speed 62.5, HC 4. 4,435 lbs, $14,922.
I just don't think well in Metal and Gas yet. But, Bravo: eighteen points of metal is truly nasty.

Update: I added the Div20 version because I had it lying around the drawing board. Yeah, it's not worth the cash. Does anyone really use Plasticores?
