if you are going to put that much work into making a kill dozer better make it a high drive unit 3 wheels top one drives a straight track like that is very vulnerable to damage to drive sprocket. the back sprocket drives the unit a large enough bump or direct hit (think back into a large rock or stump) can break (twist ) drive wheel leaving you stuck and waiting on a expensive 16,000 plus dollar repair which takes one day with a factory shop truck to fix. thats why all modern tanks have elevated drive wheels not inline like early versions. In auction a straight line dive is less than 50% of a high drive set up same size dozer

Once you add all the extra weight it will be much easier to disable, now you know where soft spot is. other way it to lure on to ground where it is soft they sink fast especially with extra weight and inexperienced driver.

third you cant see the front but it has to have a view and air slots for massive radiator in front the fan will have to be blowing out or guy inside would cook air intake will will be behind the main shovel just in front of the track. this is vulnerable to inability to cool down. I would use kids toy modified with better tubing so you dont have to get close. most had windows with those oil paint is a nightmare cant see cant drive stay still and roast.

note the wire and mesh cages those are for rpg and other infantry at weapons making the round expend penetration before hull cheaper than reactive armor.

The first one at least attempts to use sloped armor remember how sloping increases armor thickness and deflection of incoming munitions with little extra weight cost. flat means straight one hits are armor thickness only

there is the math for it

for around 50,000 you can but a T72 tank on auction just have to disable gun and put plastic/ rubber tracks on it.

or but an old engineering vehicle/LAV for less than 20k including rebuild cost and not have”lockable ” hatch or guns in emplacements.
