Nice balltank Hydro! That's a good way to deviate from the common tank stereotype.

That Ball Turret Weel Tank (long name) is great indeed.

Exactly, it's not really safe in there. Hmm, maybe there is some sort of safety mechanic

What if it tries to go over deep mud? The guy in the ball will be like "crap."

Here is a River Tribe Ball Turret Wheel Tank used during the Atomic War. These were painted with desert cammo so when not moving it could hide from the Desert Tribe. These wheel could move over sand dunes with eases and reverse direction quickly. Like a Earth wheel bike the outside wheel spins while the internal wheel stays stable. This movement works like a gyro scope. Inside is a ball turret similar to the ball gun turrets used on the bottom of World War II air craft. These can turn 360 degrees around as well and rotative up and down and diagonal. The only way it cannot move is completly over the top because of the guns. Gunner of these were very accurate and it had a fail safe system in which if the gun was behind the wheel it would not fire. Once it cleared it it could continue.The cockpit holds 2 Nauceans side by side one looks out the window and shoots while the pilot reads the controls with a primitive view screen. This was the first use of any sort of screen since televesion was not invented yet. The displace showed a black and white image from 4 cameras that were positions on either side of the conical coll um that held the sphere in place. This part never moved thus 2 faced forward and 2 backwards once they were traveling in reverse. If the wheel fell over to one side to the other for any reason hydrolic lifts on the wheel part will pop it back up. The Wheel tank was not only very fast and could go on any terrain but was actually well armored. everything from the treads to the ball turret its self was heavily armored. Since they did not have brakes they had to use reverse to get it to a stop. The plots of these were called "Blind Tornados" because of all the sand it kicked up and how most had to use their other instruments rather than the cameras to even know where they were going.

Your answer is in bold.

These were made for desert battle against the Desert tribe. There is not much mud. However they are venerable to mud and quicksand. The desert tribe took advantage of this weakness and set up quicksand traps for them.  ;)
