I meant to upload this last week, and then I meant to upload it yesterday. I'm getting worse. Anyway, this is the last of the tanks of the American Empire (well, for now, I have two more armoured vehicles in gestation, but only in my head at the moment). It's called the M22A4 Sennacherib. Below is an excerpt from a full article about the tank: ...The M22A4 Sennacherib is typically manned by a 5-man crew, consisting of a tank commander, a driver, and three gunners. The tank commander is usually situated in the turret, nearest the access hatch, and often operates the vehicles sole machine gun. The two gunners responsible for the spigot mortar are located to his front. One has responsibility for loading the gun, the other for aiming and firing it. The other gunner, seated in the lower right side of the chassis, is responsible for the aiming and firing of the rocket artillery. The driver sit in the front section of the chassis. Due to the large number of crew for such a relatively small vehicle, the Sennacherib tends to be rather cramped.
The tank turret has a 360° traverse, and carries all of the tank’s main weaponry. The M22A4 Sennacherib is also equipped with rear slat armour for its turret, which also doubles as a carrying section for troops or equipment.
The M22A4 Sennacherib has two main armaments. The first, and original main armament, is the 290mm M9 Imhullu spigot mortar, produced by the Akkad Company. This can fire a variety of high explosive ammunition, as well as some rocket-propelled ammunition, usually over a short to medium range.
The M22A4 Sennacherib’s second main armament, which has been present since the M22A3 upgrade, are two Anzû ZUD2IM rocket launchers, produced by the Assur Group. These replace the M22A2’s Imdugud GUD1IM rocket launchers…
