Written as a campaign base where equipment price is based on model price (and countries get a military budget of around £35-£60 per week). Probably needs revamping with the increase in kit prices these days.
I kept the actual combat simple (gun damage is d6 or d8 - the latter for hollow charge weapons - x calibre in mm with modifiers for muzzle velocity, tank "resilience" based on total weight) with 1/2 that value sustained causing either a mobility kill or a firepower kill, 3/4 being a knock-out but field In-game) repairable and anything equalling or exceeding that value is a kill, which may or may not be repairable back at the factory.
If you're interested I can send you a set, with "editable" data tables (MS Excel format) so you can add anything I've missed: the game also accommodated kit-bashed player designs, and rules for designing your own stuff. (Originally written when kits were truly "pocket money" prices and buying a couple of kits to build your own "perfect tank" was viable for even junior members with limited income).
1 It does give some anomalies - the most notable being the Airfix WWI tank capable of taking nearly as much damage as a Comet - but it did make for fun games, and caused a reverse arms race when a friend and I bought each other birthday/ Xmas presents that were deliberately chosen to be "useful" in the game but also chosen to have a combat worth of slightly more than bugger all. IIRC the WWI tank ended up with vertical launch missiles, a couple of gatling self defence systems and uprated engines...
2 This was a necessity because my best mate was my chief opponent. Because he's a mate I couldn't give him rubbish, but as an opponent I knew that whatever I bought him came "free" in the game (as a "gift from from a superpower") and would be used against me.
