MBT-01 'General Williams' Family of MBTs

(The Latest of the MBT-01 family, the A9)
(The latest upgrade to the MBT-01 family, the A9M)
(The MBT-01A8, one of the later variants of the MBT-01 family and the last to use ETC cannon technology)
(The MBT-01A7, which would lead to the MBT-01A8 with crewless turret)
  The MBT-01 series was SolForce's first 'internal' design, made by a team of tank crews and engineers during the second half of the New World Era's first century. While the external looks of the MBT-01 series are quite similar to MBTs of centuries past, the fact of the matter is that there are only so many ways to adequately armor a vehicle. The armament, however, is what has changed immensely over the years.   Initially (MBT-01 to MBT-01A2) the tank family utilized a powerful 150mm tank cannon with a 15.5mm HMG coaxial of a more conventional propellant before switching off to more modern Electro-Thermal Chemical cannon technology replaced them. The majority of the family would utilize ETC propelled kinetics to evolve with armor in general over the centuries, allowing it to stay on top of the ever-evolving race between offense and defense. The latest models utilize a coilgun instead of an Electro-Thermal Chemical cannon, vastly improving its armor penetration, firepower, and ammo capacity.   The General Williams family of MBTs is named after General Alfred Williams, a former United States Army general who specialized in armor. Alfred and other officers and soldiers joined the remnants of the UN Peacekeepers during the late 2060s, providing a core of professional soldiers and allowed the various former UN groups to survive in a world becoming less and less sane.
