GIJOE Desert MOBAT Tank ROC Custom

Desert-Mobat-ROC
Thanks to HISS TANK.com boards member stryker ninja for posting up his custom GIJOE Desert MOBAT Tank

WEAPONS: Z-68A 140mm cannon, .50 caliber rapid-fire machine gun
The G.I. JOE teamís unrelenting battle tanks roll over the toughest terrain. The tanks have a main turret that rotate 360 degrees, so it doesnít matter from which direction enemy vehicles come these tanks will find them and fire on them. With the infrared night scope, the enemy cannot hide in the darkness or the shadows. The tanks have super-traction treads for climbing over rough ground with ease, and triple-thick armor plating that can withstand heavy firepower.

Many more GIJOE Desert MOBAT Tank images after the jump.

simply put, a beautiful and realistic adaptation for the mobat. One thing I would have done differently, I would have added the "reactive armor" of the U.S. Army's M1 Abrams tanks as seen in our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I am a big fan of the hanging plates of armor and the funny yet bulky cages which are on several of our vehicles overthere. If yo do a 2nd mobat go that direction and you'll have a "perfect" uparmored piece of armor for your combatants. Once again, great custom and definately a piece worthy of display!
freakintiger:
Very nice work!

The plane in my sig is one of its natural predators...
oliverbox:
This is excellent. I would have bought multiples if Hasbro had made this. Well done, and thanks for the pics.
saltymarine:
Bar or Slab Armor, Reactive Blocks, like this.
Mr Hebime:
Desert Mobat is looking NICE! If Hasbro were to reuse this mold, they should look to this for inspiration.
neapolitan joe:
Coool!
deadfish:
badass!!! nice work on the paint and the plow is a great addition!! all around win!!
darthschroeder:
That is outstanding work, man. But isn't it missing the machine gun on the turret?
Snow Wolf:
Very nice!

Maybe I will just have to add some reactive armor , like I had said it was one of my first customs, thanks for the idea I appreciate it.
