People saying Brit tanks are ugly are people who don't understand what they are looking at when it comes to tracks and suspension.

Ugliest tank of WW2 for me is the M3 Grant / Lee

America has never designed a good looking tank.

I said "never designed a good looking tank" - that doesn't mean that i think everything they make is ugly.


they all suffer from looking too fat for their tracks and many (MBT-70 most of all) have stupid ammounts of stuff just attached to the outside because there wasn't room in the already ample chassis.

Look at that fucking gun mantlet on this thing. I'm glad its dead.

What the fuck m8? It means exactly that. USA never outsourced tank designs and "not good looking" equals "ugly" to me and everyone I've met.
>they all suffer from looking too fat for their tracks and many (MBT-70 most of all) have stupid ammounts of stuff just attached to the outside because there wasn't room in the already ample chassis.
You know, sacrificing effectiveness for the looks is just plain stupid. And t︂b︂︂h that never bothered me. Maybe you're just a fag that doesn't like strong looking American tanks?

Or you could have a cast turret with a huge jew nose of a face plate that then needs to have a hole cut in it. And even then with your huge redundant mantlet you require canvas to keep the rain out.

Then to keep the jew nosed tank happy they give it a big outdated cupola to remind it of new york, they even fill it with lots of glass so he can peer out at all the anti Semites.

They were also kind enough to let him strap all his trinkets to the outside of the tank so he can try and sell his wares as he goes through towns.

Oh and with that 105mm cuck gun this jew probably has a really nasally, high pitched voice voice.

So tell me again what's wrong with Chieftain ?

Any other tanks turret takes an RPG from the front and keeps fighting. T-14 takes a hit in the turret and is now combat ineffective and has to go back to the factory. They couldn't even put on a little bit of composite, just this thin covering over the gun housing.

At least double the LOS thickness of the T-90 as it would have the entire length of the turret to protect the air behind it. The gun would be exactly as vulnerable as in any other MBT as you can see by the comparison with the T-90. The gun is almost identically set in the turret as the T-90 meaning that the gun would be at least as well protected as in the T-90.

The tank's turret is as large as the T90's and is unmanned. of course it has more then sufficient protection. You can see the top attack protection on the roof and the sides/front are similarly or better protected because it would make no sense to protect the roof and leave the sides wide open. Making composite turret armor makes no sense from utility standpoint as T14 is a modular design.

Deep inside some of you are just butthurt Russia is a premiere tank country again because this design is decades ahead compared to anything on the market today. Much better mobility, APS, weapon and armor alongside the unmanned turret which further increases crew safety and foreshadows fully automated MBTs.
First you say "but it stopped at the parade muh", then you are like "but its has no armor", and now it finally comes down to threads specifically dedicated to "omg look it's so ugly!". Just kinda laughable and miserable to behold, that's all.

Are you a great fighter if you beat up an malnourished autist kid or if you beat up an equal?

Poping something even soviet satellites considered junk at ranges where they literally had no chance is not a battle, it's a turkey shoot.

Then only "battle tested" are those involved in blue-on-blue engagements, only they stood up against equal tech generation.

>no military hardware has been "battle tested" since WWII

>Suez Crisis in 1956 arabs still using same WWII tanks like T-34 and IS-3, Israel still using WWII tanks as well as the AMX-13
>6 Day War, arabs still using WWII tanks with some shit-tier T-54/55's and early model M48's, Israel using later model M48's with upgraded engines, armor, and the 105mm L7 gun from the centurion. Way superior tanks on Israel's side
>Yom Kippur War, arabs still using the same lineup from the 6 Day War, WWII tanks + T-54/55's, a small handful of shitty T-62's. Israel using M60's and Centurions.

sorry bro, the arab-israeli wars were only using same-gen tech early on when both sides were using WWII tanks. By the time of the 6 Day War and the Yom Kippur War, the Israelis were using much better tanks.

So like I said, by that logic, no tanks since WWII have been "battle tested" if it means being pitted against technologically-equal opponents.
