  1. Why not upgrade its AVDS-1790-8CR engine (1050 hp) to the AVDS-1790-9A standard (1200 hp) ? Or even better, the AVDS-1790-10 (1500 hp), if it's possible.
  2. What are the other new features of the M88A3 ?

    Tanks guns and ammunition.

    Avco Systems Division XM815 105mm HEAT-MP projectile. Its muzzle velocity of 1174 m/s was the same as that of the M456 projectile which it was designed to replace but, because of the lower drag of its pointed nose body and the stability provided by its slender pop-out fins, it proved significantly more accurate.
  4. The French considered such system at some time.

    StuG III Thread (and also other German vehicles I guess)

    Opting for a petrol engine with a front-mounted transmission was already questionable.

    The Leopard 2 Thread

    Did the A-technology ever existed ? Considering that the B-technology composite armor belonged to the first generation.

    Tank Layout

    I've heard that this is especially the case regarding the commander's seat (in terms of lack of comfort). For what purpose ? More tools ? More space for the crew personal equipment ? Or just fitting the tools currently mounted outside (towing cable, entrenching tool, sledgehammer, ...) inside ? So, it would be a kind of lightened version of the SEPAR kit ? Notice the difference in weight between the TC 2 (53 metric tons, two-man turret) and the TC 3 (58 metric tons, three-man turret) concepts.
