---------------------------------

I love tanks. In 50 years, GI Joe has had surprisingly few of them. It would be great if big H introduced more tanks and other tracked vehicles (that are not a HISS or a Snowcat) into the line. For that reason, I wanted to create a new tracked vehicle. I had an old Wolverine base to start with. First thing I did was swap out the missile launchers in favor of a cannon. After that, I wanted to give the driver some added protection and lastly, I added the forward grenade launcher just for wacky fun. Bonus: it fits on the Orca for amphibious deployment.
