Do sodium batteries make electric tanks viable?

>Lithium battery, any perfuration = fire and explosion
>Sodium battery, don't explode

They could create an hybrid tank, like the porsche tiger.

The driver could hit a button "stealth mode".
And the diesel generator would turn off.
And then it would run making no noise, and no heat.

Why isn't any country investing on this?

    Ammo already explodes when hir so lithium batteries being explosive isn’t the biggest of concerns

    Really gonna doubt that there will ever be a scenario where m1 abrams sneaks up and fires an HE to my suprised face.

    >no heat.
    There absolutely will be heat, just reduced. Pretty much the limiting factor for electric engines is the cooling.

    And overall yes, there absolutely will be hybrid tanks - huge and instant torque from electric engines, fuel savings, silent ambush mode while sitting still for extended time - its all reasonably sexy.

    No. Batteries are actually pretty bad at storing energy when you scale up.

      An all electric tank is useless, but a 10% electric is useful. Imagine a tank that can run 10 meters underwater with little modifications and without a snorkel.

        imagine a tank getting stuck in mud underwater

        Yeah, you’re never ever going to drive a tank 10m underwater.

    how are you going to charge it homosexual? look at why EW cars are a total failure.

    if you are fighting someone where this matters then your tanks probably weren't viable in the first place

    cover the tank in oil and have firefighting planes drop gallons of water on it... flying tank... simple as...

    lithium is not the reason they catch on fire, it's the liquid electrolyte that is highly flammable, that doesn't happen in solid state lithium ion batteries.

    From what I've seen, sodium batteries do explode. They just don't burn.

      Then make armor tiles that are sodium batteries.
      If they explode, then they could act as a reactive armor.

      This could extend the range of the eletrict tank.

    Sodium-ion requires more space than lithium. Its advantage is that the raw materials are cheaper. This should make it more viable for static storage like homes and grid batteries.

    >stealth mode
    Most of the tank's detectable signature is from a giant metal structure moving around from the direction of the bad guys. Noise isn't very important.

    Sodium ion batteries have half the energy density of lithium ion batteries, but they are expected to be much cheaper, since sodium is a raw material that is easy to get. Electric tanks? They are 60 tons and space inside is very limited, forget it.
