This thing looks so Cold War.

I can't belive it's actually from WWII.

    It's the torsion bar suspension with big road wheels.

    Also the absence of a hull gunner. But that's because it's a tank destroyer.

        I mean, it was an upgraded Wolverine.

        Honestly the Sherman overhaul of the Lee/Grant was the biggest leap forward for tanks in the US.

          M4 sherman was actually a bit of a dead end, technologically speaking
          it was an exceptionally successful stopgap

          the T20 series would end up being the main line of development
          the M4 would benefit from the T20 series, like the T23 turret

            Sherman might had been ungainly, but it was competitive up until the 2nd generation of MBTs. The only tank more future-proofed beside the Pershing was the Centurion which barely counted as a WW2 tank.

              I can't believe Shermans were still going up against Panzer IVs in the sixties.

                unfortunately, due to how old they were, they were not known to have scored any hits much less kills

              T-55's are still in active service today.

            If you look at the history of US tank design, it's almost always one step behind and two steps retarded.
            Ironically the Sherman, despite being a mere stopgap like you say, is their most successful tank, and only because there was nothing wrong with it like there was with pretty much every other generation of US tank design.

            Even today the M1A2sep3 is only "the best" because nobody else was competiting after the fall of the soviet union. But if you think about it the sep3 is the US answer to the Panther 3, the K2, the T-14, the Challenger 3, and they're ALL better in one way or another.

            And it makes sense, the US is a naval power, they don't need tanks like Russia or Germany. They prefer to spend money on their airforce which is also reasonable, and which they get a lot more mileage from. But it's kinda insane to me at least that the only time the US, which absolutely love winning races, won the the tank race was by default, US tanks were never good.

                criticism is pointing out that rusmoron chuds are currently routing across an entire front

                I mean dude just says "lol this stuff is bad" without providing any valid criticism. There have been some dead ends like mbt-70 but most of the cold war US armor is objectively good

      And the large turret bustle.

      Also the long turret bustle, which wasn't really a common thing until post war western tanks.
      Only WW2 tanks that have something similar are King Tiger and M36 of the top of my head

        Some Soviet tanks had sizeable turret bustles, often for a machine gun position

    The small size of it gives it away as a WWII vehicle, though. Which is given away by having a person there.

    It was the most efficient AFV, in terms of kills to losses, of the war for a reason

    It was a proto-Leopard 1, at least in spirit, and makes a lot of armored fags seethe endlessly. There's nothing not to love about this thing

    On the other hand I wish America had the Bulldog in WW2. the Bulldog Is the best looking tank I can think of, and I Wish was there in WW2 only for aesthetic purpose.

      I mean, the bulldog is sort of a natural evolution from the Chaffee, right?
