This is looking good. The turret looks a bit oversized for the tank tbh. The warrior would be good for reference: link
Hadn't noticed there was more than one page when I posted, the smaller turret looks better.
Tanks don't need a camera for the driver to allow them to work in chemical weapon environments, the challenger II uses over pressure; the air inside is slightly pressureised to prevent the chemical agents from getting in, the aire entering the tank is filtered through two filters that look like washing machine drums. Camera's are starting to be added to modern tanks to aid the drivers though as you can't see f all, when closed down it's like looking through a letter box in the chally II, even in head up the view is narrow due to the armour either side of the drivers hatch. There's some funny pictures of tanks that have crashed because the drivers couldn't see the other tank and the commander was looking elsewhere lol.link
I find it funny that they were going to attach a camera to the back of the chally, but it was rejected because commanders said they should be seeing the tank back not the driver lol.

Cool stuff in here, I like the hex-buildings.
VR tank driving I guess ideally the driver or gunner wouldn't need to stick their heads out of the vehicle, just turn their heads and let the external cameras would work with the display to track where it is they'd want to see. Also with enhanced spectrum options, relayed images of what other tanks and spotters might see, and overhead relations from drones.
