An upgrade of the old MBT, the Zest MK2 has arrived, fresh from the lemon-scented factories of the Zesty Realm.
The Zest MBT was a reliable design from an age of yore - when pirates beset the colonies, the towering tank bellows forth a volley of Megatons. While a solid workhorse tank, it began to show its age as newer blocks rolled out of the Corporations. Pirates and bandits now wield more powerful weapons. While the Zest can still fight, it needs to keep up, lest it be outgunned.
The initiative was set, and the Guild of Sciences had re-constructed the apartment-sized tank with newer weapons, better armor and engines. While more expensive than the Zest's assault variant, it has more firepower and utility than the 2 variants combined, cutting the costs of maintenance by using just one vehicle type.
Much like the old version, it's a tank with harvesting capabilities, capable of peacetime operations as a quarry vehicle and a wartime all-terrain tank when needed.
As the saying goes: "We have plenty of zest" will rattle intruders once more.
I am thinking about making a harvester(Z tech multipurpose harvester) with multiple options(propulsion type, harvesting type, want a ai on it to auto harvest, etc), and a plane(the z-pro, from the newly founded Z Tech[making a thread for it under the tech thread]which is a all-purpose engineering corp) with 4 models(z-pro Z-1 with gyro add-on as a customization[Z-1 will be normal wings], and the z-pro Z-2 with gyro add-on as a customization[Z-2 will have the wingtips installed])
