Gilgamesh: Utopian Multi-Component Vehicle: New Model rules

The Gilgamesh Command Tank for Utopia is a model that has been in development for a long time. Originally there were a number of ideas starting as a regular tank, though slightly larger than normal to a kind of super Hittite, a kind of Armored Fighting Vehicle for the south, to a massive hover N-KIDU factory.
 
The design for the vehicle was always to be a command node for a N-KIDU based Utopian army. The idea was that a large tank could have a powerful communications system to coordinate a very large number of drones at one time. Originally the concept was more of an armored train pulling factory cars but that was discarded early both as a logistical problem for the rules as well as a nightmare for the cost of producing such a model. Read on for some thoughts about decisions we made regarding this centerpiece model.
