We used to run/march past that massive tank every morning and afternoon from AIT at Fort Knox. And every time I looked at that behemoth, all I could see is what a nightmare it would have been to maintain that thing not only in the motor pool but in the field.

uh well that is true for pretty much all of the "heavy" or "super heavy" tank designs (even if the T95/T28 was more a super heavy TD).

Be it the US T32, T34, T28 or T30 of which some had a 150mm main gun ... or the British Conqueror heavy tank or the Soviet IS series starting from the IS4 to the IS6 and IS7. All of them would have proven to be a nightmare for the maintenance team :shock:

It has a reason why the MBT has become the primary tank in the armies of the world :mrgreen:
