Hey everyone. Just wanted to revive this thread from General discussion and put here for devs to see and see new and more opinions.

I would like to see more on what you guys think. This would be more fun to play tank.

And what tier would you put this tank?

And as for elevation and depression of gun is from the neck(where turret connects hull is the swivel)

 

Older post:

 

I found this this cold war tank. It's called the Chrysler TV-8. It's a tank that has a elongated turret and short hull. 

Almost like the tog, but opposite.

Just want this tank to have just for fun, like the tog. A cheap premium tank.

"This info I got from Wikipedia about it"

The TV-8 was presented in a proposal by Chrysler Corporation subsequent to the Astron "X-weapon" project.[2] Using an unconventional tank design, the proposed tank located the entire crew, engine and ammunition storage within a pod-shaped turret mounted above a lightweight chassis which could be separated for air shipment. The total weight of the tank was approximately 25 tons, with the turret weighing 15 tons and the chassis weighing 10 tons.[1]

Following review, it was concluded that the TV-8 design did not prove to have significant advantages over conventional tank design to warrant further development, and on 23 April 1956, the TV-8 and three ASTRON proposals were effectively terminated.[1]

PowerEdit

The phase I design of the Chrysler TV-8 featured a Chrysler V-8 engine with 300 gross horsepower which was coupled to an electric generator located within the rear turret; the generator powered two electric motors in the front hull, each motor driving either of the two 28-inch wide tracks. Other methods of powering the tank that were later considered include a gas turbine engine drive, a vapour-cycle power plant fueled by hydrocarbons, and a nuclear fission-powered vapour-cycle power plant.[1]

Offensive capabilitiesEdit

The tank was armed with a 90mm T208 gun with a hydraulic ramming device mounted in the turret, with ammunition stored in the rear turret behind a steel bulkhead separating from the crew. Two co-axial .30 caliber machineguns and one remote controlled .50 caliber machinegun on top of the turret were also included. Closed circuit television was implemented as a measure to protect crew from the flash of tactical nuclear explosions and improve field of vision.[1]

Amphibious combatEdit

The design of the tank was intended to allow it to float, with the turret being watertight and fitted with water jet pumps in the rear to allow for propulsion while in water. The turret consisted of two layers, namely an inner and outer shell, with the outer section acting as spaced armour protecting the inside.   

What do you guys think. I want to see your opinions

Do not have any images and it wont allow me to upload any.

Don't know how that would be a tech tree tank so I say premium that's if we even get it though. Looks cool to me.

So basically I legit don't ever look at the forum anymore because I mainly look at it during school. My school banned the site you go to log in and I couldn't post, and I'd rather devote my time when on my home computer to playing the game. So yeah basically why I vanished from the forum. Its not like I posted a lot anyways lol 

my crappy stats= here

and for the life of me I cant find a pfp that is small, this one is getting old

Very low chance. More likely a fallout will happen like chernobyl but way smaller from the radiation leaking.

Unless the pressure is built up inside the tank than it will explode, but not nuclear size.

There is already a thread on a proposal for this tank. 

conclusion: turret would be unpennable from the front and it would be slow AF.

Pretty sure that was me some months back. But brought it here for a better chance for devs to see.

I would only like to see it in game if it caused nuclear fallout after killed.
