it can be better.! Thats what the Americans said. And so was the T28 born
I think it had more then 300mm of armor around the mantlet. Or something like that.
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.

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:
