Looks nice!

The couple notes i find may be tweaked is
1. Some more interaction with water near track - maybe just adding couple splashes
2. Too much reflections on some guns\pipes
3. Blck smoke looking real.

Wow-- impressive!

The side of the tank looked like a reflection of the mud but it didn't move as the tank climbed the hill and turned. Is this something to be fixed? I watched it again--I see it's caked mud on the side--so I would discolour, crack it - for variation to contrast the environmental mud, because it seemed too similar. If its wet, I'd imagine darkening it, if its dry I would lighten/desaturate color and crack it.

Nice work aside from this- very real.

Superb. aside from the additions on water splash i would...

Animate the black exhaust smoke rate so it emits more as it climbs the hill and less as it stops... engine working harder equals more emissions.

When it rotates before firing does the other tread not rotate the opposite way?

Maybe a bit of animation on the barbed wire nearby.. Shaking or wobbling as the tank causes the ground to shake.

As it is tho superb effort

It looks cool, how did you make the smoke effect.
Also, did you do the lighting? If so, how long or intensive was it?
