    The same as always but they'll need more active protection against top attack.

    Except for ruski tanks, those BBQs are obsolete.

    Tanks are vulnerable, that never changed, but if you look how vulnerable is infantry then put the tanks in a better light.

    first and most important role of tanks is cavalry action
    tanks are the primary unit of maneuver warfare
    they are used for breakthrough and then the subsequent exploitation
    they are the only unit fast enough, armored enough, and well armed enough in a single package to successfully follow up their own breakthrough to begin an encirclement of enemy forces

    tanks do not exist for infantry support, the tanks do not slow down for the infantry
    this is a common misconception
    infantry exist to provide armor support not the other way around, such is the importance of tanks

    If we automate them as much as we have been doing so far? They’ll take on a role more impairment than they currently have.

      This.

      The "tanks are obsolete because of modern ATGM!" crowd tend to ignore that modern battlefields are overflowing with weapons that tear unarmored or lightly armored targets to shreds, and there's tactical utility in vehicles heavily armored enough to not die like bitches to heavy machine guns or an light triple A gun. While tanks are vulnerable to specialized anti-tank weapons, lighter vehicles are vulnerable to practically everything.

    Mobile artillery/cavalry hybrid that doesn't die instantly if it runs into infantry. When the enemy is sufficiently softened and ATGM are destroyed (which contrary to popular belief, an armored unit CAN do on its own if it fights intelligently and takes advantage of its superior range and optics compared to existing ATGM systems), they can then go into the charge to mop up any remaining soft targets.

    To take ground, destroy enemy vehicles and emplacements. Be able to withstand sustained fire from most weapons on a battlefield.
