Steam Tank – Tesla Coil Gun
Based on the British MKIV World War I tank this is an alternate version using Steam power.
The Turbine engine to generate the Tesla charge has been “containerised” (its a thing with any army they cannot help but containerise everything!) in an armoured trailer. This helps protect the generator from enemy attacks, the generator is isolated with the inside of the trailer coated with 1/2″ of ceramic, with good old fashioned steel providing the outer protection. Two large heavily insulated cables connect the generator to the Tesla Coil gun on the rapidly converted Mobile Howitzer Tank
Excellent fields of fire are possible as the Tesla coil gun is post mounted as there is no recoil when fired.
All models are supplied unpainted
This variant also has the added protection of an HMG turret mount.
NOTE: The cables from the trailer to the main tank are not supplied – the hole for the cable is 1.5mm Diameter and brass/copper rods are easily and cheaply obtained and can be bent into required shape. Or as used by our studio painter some UK mains cable fits very nicely.
