Development[edit | edit source]
The Type-42 is an attempt at engineering an 'immortal' tank. With an armour thickness of at least 200mm all-round, this machine might be one of the most well armoured moving contraptions in existence. The armour is virtually impenetrable by all but the most powerful armour piercing rounds of any calibre. Its armament consists of no less than 2 140mm Cannons and a secondary, remote controlled 75mm autoloader turret. Its total mass adds up to a whopping 350 tonnes, which makes moving this tank around a logistical nightmare. However, once it does make its way to the battlefield, the damage it can sustain and deliver is considerable. Due to its speed and slow turret traverse speed, the tank is easily flanked, so it needs several lighter tanks to cover its advance.
