I really like this tank. Mind if I grab it for Mexico? Do you have any more specs for it?

I'm glad you like it....feel free to use the drawing.
Specs...well, what about those:

Dimensions can be seen in the drawing I think....
crew: 4 (Driver, gunner, loader, commander)
weight: 16,9 metric tons
armament: 3,7 cm LBK4-1, 2x machine guns
engine: V-12 petrol engine, 305 hp
speed: on-road= 41 Km/h, off-road 23 Km/h
range: 290 Km
hull front = 35 mm
hull sides = 30 mm
hull rear = 25 mm
hull downside = 25 mm
hull topside = 16 mm
turret front = 38 mm
turret sides = 30 mm
turret rear = 25 mm
turret topside = 16 mm

I hope those specs are plausible....

Hi Foxy,

shiny tank ;) Didn't you think, that the camouflage is a bit too bright ? ?(

Of course not! It needs to stand out so the enemy can easily spot them in rocky terrain. :D

Vegetation in Belize is tall light-colored grass.

What part of Belize? All the photos I find show a more Caribbean light jungle terrain. For instance:

I was in the central Belize City to Belmopan area. It varies, but there is a lot of open grassy plains, I would say about 70%, and the tanks would mainly be used in that terrain and not the jungle.

A few more camo patterns. OTL Mexican ones are too lame.

Pink and brown make for some ugly camo. Dark grey would be for urban combat.
