What will tank design be like 50 years from now?

    An armored tracked vehicle with a main gun on a turret.
    Probably more advanced electronics, maybe some anti-ATGM system.

      This, but with a much greater focus on speed, low observability (maybe even active camouflage), and NLOS attacks.

    Like a modern tank except robotic and with much more active defence and better sensors

    pretty much the same but with a bunch of sensors and counter measures against ATGMs, and probably high elevation remote operated third weapon on top able to take out drones... maybe with a small targetting radar antenna.
    There will be resistance to the unmanned turrets mostly based on overreactions to some cons compared to the advantages.

    Tanks are already obsolete. Elon Musk understands it.

      a) Only if you use them as a subhuman.

      b) Still plenty useful against subhumans hiding, ie, inside concrete buildings so some will be fun to have around just for that.

    hybrid engine so it can sit idle on just battery and not give off a big glowing thermal signature

    if you want the boring truth
    Something like an Abrams hull but with a 2k HP diesel power pack
    Something like the KF51 Pantehr turret but with a 120mm smoothbore with autoloader
    turret top full of sensors and APS
    turret and hull sides full of ERA and/or NERA
    maybe a box launcher bolted to the rear that can throw recon drones or loitering munitions
    everything covered in 'thermal camo' that sorta-kinda maybe works to some degree

    Electrical with a gauss gun and solar panels on top to power it undefinitly. Also, they can fly.

    Ill bet my pension itll be:
    >120mm Rhinemetall main gun
    >Slab sided composite armour
    >12 cylinder diesel

      then you're going to be a broke as bitch in the future, or your boomer ass will be on the street. 120mm has already been maxxed out, everyones looking at 130mm or 140mm

    Limited crew or the possibility to master/slave and remote control

    Bunch of Active protection systems + some minimal Anti-air.
    Probably somewhat better armor due to advancements of material science.

    Better Sensors+ targeting systems Passive radar. Laser. IR. All with massive AI assist and battlefield datalinks. Its own drone port. More big data, like what does it look like on Google street view over there. What is the Forrest and road/soil conditions over there. With the past and future weather.

    Stuff like realtime satellite/drone feed. All in combination for a VR/argumented reality view

    More beyond visual range weapon/rockets/suicide drones/ pgm. Hunter/killer.

    More modular for logistics and role. Command vehicle/mine clearing/ trenching/ supplies. So you can bolt on a plow or attach a load. Or remove weight for airlifts or repairs kinda like the Powerpack swaps we have today.

    Better ergonomics like self-loading and fuelling like we already have with some SPGs

    But who know may pgm become so cheap and needed it's just a cheese wedge rocket Taxi that shits on anything with GPS, optical, ai guided stuff from 20 km Away while a drone on a long wire hovers at 700m to spot targets.

    Active camouflage that will obscure heat signatures.

    Lot more advancements in active defense systems. Maybe upgrade to main gun tech or shell tech, but the main cannon is going to be more or less the same in only 50 years.

    there will be no tanks
    everything will be drones firing hypersonic missiles from beyons visual range based on hyper efficient AI enhanced targetting. infantry, armor, etc will all be functionally immobilized
    basically, war is going to be fucking gay and boring

    I don;t know that tanks can survide sucide drones
    I mean a sawm of 50 drones is going to cost way less than a tank, and whats the defence options.

    You can cover pretty much the whole earth with low cost suicide drones now at low cost.
    Where then an how then will the tanks hide?

        I miss the days of watching Ronins trying to get into the meat of my team's Titan battle royale thinking they're all sneaky and shit. And then eating a fully charged RG shot to the cockpit hatch, ditching their fresh Ronin in about a minute after dropping it while getting no Titan kills.
        I miss that game like you wouldn't fucking believe...

    There won't be new tank designs in 50 years. The battlefield will consist almost entirely of drone swarms leading small groups of infantry commanded by AI and backed up by artillery, very long ranged aircraft weapons, TBMs, and EW.
