During the UESV’s short tenure as it’s own independant nation companies like PT, EZ, and even D’squittan Arms designed weapons platforms for the burgeoning new market. The EZ Design Bureau, at a distinct disadvantage against it’s competitors Pierre Chattallione and Myachev and even Turrex, designed an entirely new vehicle alongside the UESV in order to supplement it’s limited amount of PT-80 MBT’s.
The result was the EZ-94 Olifant, a large MBT that fit somewhere between the PT-90 Civet, an extremely expensive super-vehicle, and the PT-80, and all-around well balanced tank. The EZ-94 was equipped with both spaced and ERA-plate armor as well as nearly 217mm of frontal turret armor.
As it’s main weapon the EZ-94 has equipped the unique 170mm ‘variable bore’ cannon by Quetzalworks. The ‘Variable Bore’ tagline is purely marketing mojo for a barrel that is intended to be wide enough to fire the 152mm Kornetski antitank missile.
Additionally the EZ-94 is equipped with six AT-15 Khrizantema antitank missiles able to target enemy armor from nearly six kilometers away.
All of these features are present in the USSV’s PT-90 (alongside anti-air weaponry, remotely controlled machine guns and a secondary kornetski launch tube) however the EZ-94 managed to incorporate the important anti-armor features in a platform only 67% of the cost of the PT-90.
Before the EZ-94 was able to be put into production in the UESV the two countries reunified following the return of president Draggo and the threat posed to both countries by the radical state Myeongju.
This is prolly one of the first vehicles i have where almost every part is completely originally made by me. The exceptions i think are the barrel of the gun (which is a modification), the fuel tanks, the two tiny cameras on the main periscope and the top-mounted machine guns. Even the tracks were totally done by me in Sketchup.
