Hi there,

 

I stumbled across a tank, which could be fitting for World of Tanks.
The idea for this tank came up before the development for the Leopard 1.

It would've been a replacement for the M48 or M60 and developed in a US-west German correlation.

The US planned to use the XM150 gun/launcher for this tank, while the germans had plans to fit a 120mm Rheinmetall gun.

Here's some information:
(english) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MBT-70

(german) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kampfpanzer_70

You know it's the same tank, one is just translated from english. I could see potential of this being a tier 8 premium derp tank with that 152mm gun...

I think it’s been mentioned as a possibility by another forumer in the past. I wouldn’t mind it, but it might be a bit op for tier 8, and we don’t have tier ten prems yet.

Wether it could fit in one of the tech trees or not, I’m not sure about that.

Yes I know ;)
That's why it would fit in both german and US TT/as a premium.
They would have different armament, or options for both guns.

That would be cool: if you choose the XM150 (derp), you have a US premium, but if you choose the 120mm, you have a german premium.

The tank would do well in WoT. 
However i do not think that he is suitable as Tier 8 premium because the two cannons are too big / strong on this level. 
This tank would do better as an tier 10 medium. 
Since the German medium line has already 2 tier 10 mediums i voted for an tier 10 USA medium. 
So u have an option to chose M48A1 patton or MBT-70.
Since this tank would do well with the big guns.

I can understand your point, but I think it could be suitable for a Tier 8 premium, but I would prefer a Tier 10 medium or heavy.

It should be a tier 10 medium for both nations but with different guns

Already in Blitz so why not. It would have a better balance at tier X than IX anyway.

The 120mm gun is a smoothbore, so that's not an option.

That being said, depending on what the tank is actually made out of (RHA steel or composite), which for the life of me I cannot remember exactly, the 152mm variant would be fine.
As a tier X.

You see, the US developed an APCR round of around 250mm penetration for that gun. Only suitable for the 152mm in the MBT-70, not the weaker version on the M551, and I'm fairly sure not really suitable for the M60A2 and related prototypes. Don't quote me on that, however.

Basically, the E-100's gun on a medium.

You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

If the 120mm German gun is ruled out, then it should be a US tier X premium heavy with the XM150, and be a dual-nation trainer for both American and German crews.

MTB-70 is essentially a Leopard 1 with the Sheridan's derp gun and the strv's tilting hull. The same concept was applied to the Patton at one point and it was less than well received (irl). 

I'm not opposed to it being put in the game, I just see it as something that's really not neccessary since there are already tanks that could fill it's role. In effect I think it would be like a buffed derp sheridan.


What ever tactic you use is legit, but if the emey does it then its a cheap unfair OP noob tactic.
