First thought, wouldn't the name be Eisenwulf?

Second thought, it's got a very Marsden II feel to it, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The Marsden II isn't necessarily a great tank in it's own right, but it's a great starting point to making a great tank.

All in all, I like it. You might consider a fuel cell engine for a later era (post jihad) update. It would be basically an overall upgrade, but fuel cells don't really become common until after the jihad.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

It's really a waste not to use those fixed heat sinks...

I'd change the MMLs to tripple MML3s and the HMG to a standard MG, that saves enough to mount a pair of ERMLs in the turret (on the opposite side of the MMLs, so the picture still looks the same ;) ).

No, Eisenwolf is correct. If he aimed for German at least.
