This was the SO-122 built by Yugoslavia. I think you will find this video intresting. Whether or not the SO-122 has a place in the game is subject for debate.

I had looked at this a while ago. Could fit in an Israeli tech tree as well as they made some too. Could be a Middle east tech tree with Israel as the top tier 9-10 with other countries mixed in like the Euro tech tree. I'm going to find my notes on this tank. Over all its pretty neat.

Just saw this on the reddit page r/TankPorn (It's not NSFW I swear) along with a Sherman with a rocket launcher for an armament and a T54 chassis with a Mig 15 engine instead of a turret that was used as a minesweeper. Sometimes I wonder what went through the minds of the people who came up with these kinds of ideas. So strange.

I really wish they could put more of the weird and unusual tanks in game, like the M4/FL10, and others.

No, it was different. The top one is a calliope and the bottom one is a T105 Sherman.

That would be very interesting. It would be like an autoloader I guess.

Sort of...

 

6 barrels manually reloaded. 
  For Blitz you could make it so it could fire on a 3-4 sec ‘interclip’.  
But reload could only be done when unspotted. 
 

However it would only have HEAT, HEP, and HEAP. 
  So no barrier penetrating rounds.

the AMX also needed to be reloaded manually, from the outside.

and that’s the reason for the 6 barrels.


i like the mechanics where reload would only starts when unspotted. Would be a crazy gameplay for enthusiast such as me. I need fresh mechanics to compensate the stale and foul smelling teammates I’m gettting these days.

The reload would have to be quite long, wouldn't it? NVM, I didn't read all preceding posts. Sorry.
