You would certainly hear one of those trying to creep up on the battlefield. Looks great Chaos.

It's funny but in the movies they always have the ground rumbling when the dinosaurs get running, but have you ever heard elephants making a the ground shake --- they are very quite on there feet. Same with ostriches ---

Certainly wouldn't want to meet it in a dark alley  ;)

Great build  :thumbsup:

I can assure you that if a baby elephant treads on one's foot it is quite heavy  ;D I was feeding it at the time as well, ungrateful, little  ;)

I do know what you mean though Robert.

In my experience, elephants are very quiet, moving or static, when they want to be so.  Moving to the aid of a herd member in distress?  Very loud - going through vegetation instead of around it, trumpeting - very loud.

I imagine that this would have the normal heavy diesel engine noises on any tank, minus the squealing of rusty tracks.  Quieter than one might think, I suspect, especially if attention were paid to muffler design.  I could see two modes there - Sneaky and Blatant.  :)

I think the guns lack of traverse would be a handicap.  A tracked tank could pivot on the spot a lot quicker then this could do an awkward shuffling pirouette.

Yeah, practicalities aside it's a great build.

Well done Chaos.

THE more I look at these things the more I want one to convert. Your builds are excellent, they really are.

Convert into what though Chris? A tank maybe................?  ;D ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
