The Time Traveling Desert Tiger by DeSynchronizer The Time Traveling Desert Tiger by DeSynchronizer
A collab between me and :iconobershutzewienman:
HERE YOU SEE... a TIME Traverling King tiger

Time traveling?

How good could a KT be using todays high standard composite armor, never-fail gearboxes, laser aiming technology, sabot munnitions and a 1500 hp engine?

Pretty damn good, thats what.

(fictionally place this 30 years later, the soviet war in afghan perhaps? How about just a fucking desert.. I like that idea)

Secondly, Don't take up your techinical bullshit with me I don't know anything gun related, even though i'm slated to be an m1 crewman in july.....(this makes me sad) , I didn't draw the Kingtiger, Boris did go bitch on his profile

I drew all the everything else, and he drew the time traveling king tiger (porsche turret)
took around 6 hours for all the coloring/t-72. A new record.

The signatures corralate to our world of tanks ID, i'm submitting this tot he fan art spotlight.. wish us luck
And we made it into the fan art spotlight, hooray :D

Don't forget the transmission, that was the real weak point of the King Tigers (and Panthers).  The armor was too heavy and the engine did not have enough power, in between was the transmission.  Besides 1500hp would not be enough to matter.  Go with a 2,000-2,400hp air cooled radial, like an R2800.  Plenty of power and much more fuel efficient than a turbine.  If you are going to up grade the engine and armor the tranny has to follow.  Good luck in the dessert with that bogie set up, they over heated even in the winter.  Better yet how did they get it on or off a ship?

Don't want to hear anything about getting technical, after all you were the one making the difference about turrets and that is getting technical.

After that pretty cool!  What would have happened if Rommel had these and the gas to run them?

Why does being an M-1 crewman make you sad?  It is the best tank in the world, bar none.

They're good but not the best. That is where the British Challenger steps in. Amazing reliability, Unrivalled track record (not one was killed during the Gulf war) and is used by more armies than the M1 (India being the main customers, buying them and then changing them into the Khalid Shir, I believe) But, between them both, the Abrams and the Challenger are both very good in their own ways.

Hm, I guess you do have a point~ in either case, this was the result of :iconobershutzewienmans: thinking, we did think about all the possibilities when he drew it. 

At the time, I was sad because I only had a month after graduating Highschool before going off to boot, now that i'm in, its really fun, but likewise it has its ups and downs. Also I disagree, Abrams is not the best tank in the world, I cannot speak for others, but this PoS breaks down more than anything else I can think of, and half the time they're electronic faults that cost 30 grand to fix.

What we really need to see is a time-traveling Desert Fox. God only knows what would happen if you matched that with modern MBTs and jet aircraft.

88mm packs no punch, the electronics package would probably be to big to fit in, ammunition stowage dangers are still present, and it has a high silhouette, as well as a useless extra crew member.

When I said Desert Fox I meant Erwin Rommel. What were you talking about? I'm honestly confused.

This is AMAZING; I would love to see how this would actually fight today. My history teacher would flip out over this one; he hates the alternate history XD
