Peasant Posted October 31, 2018 Report Share Posted October 31, 2018 I feel enamored with the possibility of fitting a fairly powerful gun onto a light tank, without making it an especially big light tank. But not in an open top tank destroyer configuration. Simply, designed around a casemate. For example, a Pz II with a widened hull structure, to support a 50 millimeter gun. In a manner similar to but not the same as the ASU-57, ASU-85; precluding the air drop requirement. Targeting the use of a fairly common gun, (for Soviets an F-34?) True you could not stabilize the gun, nor could you make it a long barreled gun, but it should be a fairly effective infantry support vehicle? It would not require significant expense (being small for an LT & conservative), it could not carry too large a gun in fear of it's inferiority in function, but it would significantly outgun it's counterparts. FCS would not be the greatest concern? Because it would operate to support infantry. A miniature StuG III Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
