“BOOM! BANG! POW! BOOM! BANG! POW!”

“Those so called Loron "Tankz" are actually made of looted parts from vehicles they have destroyed while attacking other empires. These machines go across the battlefield causing destruction and cheering the other Loron up with all the noise and death.”
- - Yogtam
Loron Tankz were created in the Civilization Stage, based on old ideas that stemmed from weapons in the Tribal Stage. A Loron civilization had the idea to hide in armoured metal boxes and add weapons to it. Eventually the idea caught on, and evolved into the Tank.
Propa Big Loron EmpireEdit
Tankz evolved in the times of the Propa Big Loron Empire, and were commonly used as an attempt to combat the Delpha Coalition of Planets during the DCP/Loron War. They began to use explosive shells and machine guns in their earliest tanks, thanks to Da Chikz and Da Geekz' help. Tanks, while effective against the Coalition's armies, were still dwarfed in power by the Coalition's real military.
Da Rogue BoyzEdit
Da Rogue Boyz invented their own Tankz back in Da Moovment, which used old designs from the Propa Big Loron Empire, and perfected them. They used plasma shells and lasers, as well as their own perfected machine guns, making them perfect. Naktor'zak, Zalk'don and Kal'kuir worked together in perfecting the design to make the 'ultimate boomz'.
Loron Tankz are very large armoured vehicles with several machine guns and a large canon which can rotate to fire in other directions. While usually grey in colour, some tankz are painted in crude ways to show off the gang the Loron in it are related to. It is 25m long, 8m in height and 6m in width, and weighs approximately 122,200 kg (120.2 tonnes).
Loron in Tankz want to blow up everything that may be unfortunate enough to be in their way. The machine guns are usually controlled by Dakka Troopaz who shoot at all directions, crazed by the thrill of combat. Usually, Tankz are sent to defeat other enemy vehicles, but the driver will usually not resist in aiming at an enemy mob and firing his cannon at it, causing massive carnage and craters. While they are made out of junk, they are created with nanomachines and quantum replicators by Mekkas and Da Chikz, as well as robots operated by Geekz, which give them strong albative armour yet a crude look.
Loron Tankz have huge engines of antihydrogen-hydrogen fuel cells reaction. Thanks to this, they can reach a speed of 95km/h despite the huge weight. The Tankz all use treads, which can cross multiple terrain, as well as crush enemies from under them. It is worth noting that several craziez will outfit their vehicles with rockets to gain short bursts of speed, whenever they feel dissatisfied with theri vehicles' speed.
Other than its weapons, Tankz are also great to boost morale among Loron forces. The sight of the Tankz blowing the enemies up with their loud explosions encourange the troops into fighting harder and more violently. They can also run over enemies, crushing them under their weight, and are capable of operating in any terrain.
The Tank uses Propa Big Blasta machine guns which fire exploding bullets. These machine guns are incredibly deadly to infantry and light vehicles, but can be damaging to larger vehicles and structures. In addition, it can use lasers which fire short, accurate bursts, often against vehicles and shields.
Its main smooth bore cannon, however, fires plasma shells about 45cm in length, which are used against enemy heavy duty vehicles and structures, but can also be used against infantry. They have a long range, and large radius of fire, in addition to their huge damage caused, and the armour-piercing skill. Specifically, the shells can reach a range of 3,500m, and have a radius of 60m2.
The Tankz use not only tough albative armour, but phasic deflector shields, which make it very resistant to most attacks. However, once the shield is down, well-aimed shots at the ammunition or engine can cause critical damage.
Loron Tankz are useful in many situations, due to their sheer power and tough armour. They are effective at long range and short range fire, and useful against infantry, vehicles and structures alike. They are useful both in long-range combat and close range. Loron Tankz are described by many as the strongest Loron vehicles.
- Unlike other Loron vehicles, it was created by OluapPlayer and not Technobliterator, as OluapPlayer had previously created Da Propa Big Rogue Tank.
- Originally there were no Tankz, but it was decided by OluapPlayer and Technobliterator there should be, as the Propa Big Rogue Tank looked out of place without other Tankz.
- Monet47 helped Technobliterator in designing the specifics, and many were based on real military tanks like M1 Abrams (which Monet showed) but mainly the Shagohod (which Technobliterator used). Overall it was the first vehicle to have as much attention to detail in terms of specifications.
