The frontal turret armor reaches up to 230 mm, while the frontal hull armor reaches up to 95 mm. Its durability is 1,300 HP, the top forward speed is 35 km/h, and its specific power is 13.6 h.p./t.
The vehicle is armed with a 120 mm gun. It deals 400 HP of damage per shot, with 232 mm of penetration with the standard shell and 276 mm with its special shell. The reload speed is 10 s. The gun has a dispersion of 0.38 at 100 m, an aiming time of 2.3 s, and 10 degrees of gun depression.
Thanks to its good turret armor and convenient gun depression, you can effectively play from the hull-down position and use various objects on the map to cover your weakly armored hull. Its handy 120 mm gun allows players to deliver fire from any distance, which makes this TD truly versatile.

3 tanks at the same time with already in game models? smells like loot boxes
XM66D would have been nicer but WG wouldn’t dare that one 😉
before the HE rework I believed a DERP line starting from the M45 with some of the 165mm AVRE’s /M46, M47 and M60) and some from the “Starship era” (M60A2, XM66, SM66D, T95, MBT MR, etc) could be interesting
if you did not like to sit back and lob HEAT or HESH shells you could still close in to “shotgun blast” everything with HE, now not so much
WG tried with the second Chinese HT line and they had to scrap the big guns during testing, HE post-nerf simply doesn’t work anymore. 🙁
well, a potential American DERP line would be a true DERP line, not like with the 2nd Chinese HT line
the high arc HEAT&HE (or HEP/HESH) shell lobbing type
shell velocity in the same order of the Sheridan/T49 (<700 m/s) with the 165mm AVRE gun being even slower (<300 m/s), not like the Chinese HTs
but yes, post-nerf it is no longer viable
Interesting this emphasis on American and European concept machines; it’s almost as though Russia was not a thing anymore! 🙂
Only take 20 years to do this
Looking like an American Vipera / Contracarro
Dunno how the development timeline matches up, but… might be related in some way to the T110E4?
it does not
the XM66 program is related to the M60A2 “Starship”
in this era of US tank development the Ordnance Department had started being more flexible about tank procurement and stopped “putting all eggs in the one basket” so each program had dozens of concepts each
I am not a researcher so I cannot tell you if something at least similar to it exists in the archives, but I can at least point out the turret resembles the ones from other concepts and mockups from the same era
Chrysler K (the 2nd one)
plus there was a 120mm armed M60 concept before it got built
