The Eitan was already said to weigh in at around 35-40 tons, and a big boy turret likely weighs in at 7 to 10 tons at a minimum. Given practical limitations on weight for an 8x8 being around 40 tons, makes me wonder what must have been removed to allow this thing to go forwards.

 

And in any case the CG must be extremely high, and the risk of rollover commensurately so.

 

Another great example as to why friends don't let friends make tanks on APC hulls.

Joke aside, her turret is relatively lightweight compared to most other things on the market, but that does beg the question as to why no one else is even trying to use a lighter turret on their wheeled death traps.
