Roughneck Joe© Tereshkova "Hover Tank"

This is my Roughneck Joe: Tereshkova Hover Tank as a “...if the story continued and technology
evolved” situation for the Mobile Infantry in Starship Troopers. These are customs in progress.

Early concept drawing.
The Ultimate Soldier's "Modern Series" M2-Fighting Vehicle is the foundation for this custom.
The treads and wheels were taken off and replaced with the hover jets.
 The rear crew compartment
houses the reactor/engine.  And the turret will be replaced with a MUCH BIGGER guns!

Original concepts for cannons and lasers, inspired by TOHO monster movies.

Refined design (bottom center)... attempting to make the largest gun possible and still keep it balanced atop the tank.
