      it’s not really the same
      anyway, here’s OP’s pic in practice, OTO’s proposed autoloader for the KPz-70 before the tank project was binned

          Grossly unsafe unless it is totally wrapped in nigh-impenetrable armor or if is a negligible chance of actually being hit.
          The solution is to compartmentalize the ammo and gun at all times except loading like in Western bustle autoloaders. Not quite what you're thinking of and it's more like the mag is feeding an intermediary feeding mechanism rather than feeding the gun itself but whatever.

          OTO Melara is based as frick and consistently makes both the best gun-based weapon systems.

            frick, meant to say "both the best and most innovative". They also make VULCANO shells which is also great.

      It's like a meld between the concept of an ammo belt and a conveyor belt.
      Or of a chain gun.

    a belt would be easier to manage in multiple ways. and there are obviously belt fed machine cannons but for the really large calibers it doesnt make much of a difference because the amount of ammo you can have in your tank is very limited so you cant go for high volume of fire anyway

    i think the rationale here is that a human operator takes up less space then an autoloader of any kind.
    tanks have a rack for shells already and it works just fine. there also a distinct reason you wouldn't stack shells this way and that's to with the risk of plasma jets detonating rounds in the magazine.
    even if incoming fire kills the crew three tank often remains operable or salvegable, if the tank magazine blows up it destroys the tank and probably everything around the tank.

    tanks guns are designed specifically to pop off rather than contain a blast, and most tank panels are tbhgned to blow out individually

      If that is the case, then why is tanks with autoloaders generally smaller then those with a conventional Black personloader?

      Complete opposite. Not only is a human loader a fourth crewman who will need be to accounted for thus more volume and weight, he's a fourth crewman who needs to be able to stand up and maneuver inside.

    Also, anything bigger than .50 tends to reload with a revolver cannon, these are relatively compact, work both with and without auxiliary power, seperate the shells and there's not much that 6 tank shells won't destroy

      Sounds like a nightmare to switch ammo.

    Not actually a new idea. The main problem is that tank gun scale shells are too heavy for practical mag springs. It also becomes something of a hazard since the ammo is stored in the same space as the crew and gun. Maybe we can revist the idea once unmanned turrets get more common.

    You're not going to achieve, or need, machine gun rates of fire from a tank's gun. What's wrong with current autoloaders?
