        of course it will be automatic

        >easier to drive
        ahhhhhh
        its not easier it’s just that it becomes automatic for the driver
        >roll starting a tank
        >yeah just roll this 60 ton thing
        >don’t worry about it
        also if 24V doesn’t work to the point the APU can’t help you start, not being to start the engine is far from the only concern you will have

        except its not. Even in the world of race cars the less you have the driver needing to take care of, the more he will be able to focus on going fast and keeping the car together (his mission)
        Only reason you still see sequential manual in racing still is cause the drivers train to have millisecond reaction times and demand that of the vehicle.
        You dont need millisecond reaction time from a fucking tank transmission and its less that you have to teach privates going through tanker school. Let the drivers focus on their mission and not about being in the optimal rpm range and gear.

      I drive a manual, I don't think it'd be easier to train troops to drive manual over automatic. It seems like the logical logistical choice is to choose the system that's easier to use. Does a tank automatic transmission work analogously to a car's?

        No, it won't. Gas turbines have a specific startup sequence to come to an even operating temperature without hot spots that would destroy them. Also any vehicle that can get a 65t tank to roll can also be used for a sympathetic start.

Meanwhile my Silverado has 120k on the OD and the 5.3 is know to reach 300k+ so even if I only ever hit 200k that's probably twenty plus years from now for how little I drive it.

              yeah no shit you are comparing an ev to a conventional veichle. the reason why ev are so fast is due to the eletric engine being able to deliver all of his torque instnatly not because they are automatic (they usually are single-speed transmission).

              Autos are too slow to accelerate, also it enables retards to drive

              was probably talking about conventional engines not eletrics

            Don't a lot of cars have automatic engine braking now? I have noticed it on cars that when you are going down a hill and brake, the engine revs like on a stick when you downshift. Automatics really have come a long way.

    Automatic transmissions have been technically superior to even high end manuals for the past 30 years. The computer thinks faster than you. Sorry.

    DCT and CVT are better than standard and torque converters.

    why do tanks even have transmissions? why arnt they a diesel hybrid? that seems like the best choice. im sure the electrical motors and shit dont may much more or take up more space than a fucking tank transmission

      The Abrams X that was revealed a bit ago is actually diesel-electric. The issue is that everyone right now is coasting off of 80's designs, the new generation of tanks will fix that. Unless you're Russia who can't even design a reliable new regular-ass diesel for the Armata.

      The problem has always been that they are more complex (and field maintenance has always been a massive thing). Also, there will be bit of power loss from the conversion, but thats probably not a big deal today.

    Don't worry PrepHole, That tank can atomize you and your car from beyond the horizon long before you become a threat.

    I drive huge trucks for a living.
    Modern automatics are better in literally every way because they still allow you to manually shift using buttons which tell the computer to gear up/down.
    I can have all the benefits of a standard in terms of dealing with hills and edge cases, predictive driving, etc - but I also reap the benefits of being lazy, such as better fuel economy.
