What is your favorite combat vehicle? Mine is BMP-2.

Type 59 I got it in WoT and it is my baby. They stopped selling it in 2012 or so. I remember running to the gas station buying a paysafe card using my last 20€ of pocket money to get this tank. I even made a short webm of it in 2017 just to brag because it is pretty rare nowadays. Sadly I don't play this game anymore at all since it became shit.

Stridsvagn 103. For a long time I hated it, but later I started appreciating the boldness of its concept. It goes against all the traditions of having a higher turret tower in the middle, like you would imagine almost any armored vehicles. This forces your brain to think and to look at the whole idea of an armoured vehicle in a new way. It's a middlefinger to all traditions and says "fuck you". Fräck. And just take a look at its second picture. They threw a fucking fence from someones garden on top of it, not giving a fuck about what you think. It ridicules your incoming. Brave, modern. This is the absolute alpha of all current armoured vehicles.

Like those Boston Dynamics robot dogs, but larger and faster and with heavy guns on them. I do believe that at some point this whole MBT meme will become obsolete, and quicker and smaller meme machines will take over. Wont be any time soon, but at some point during this century.

>>134316 It sounds like you're inventing a miniaturized Stryker MGS. Which can be called a modern assault gun, because it lacks a tank's versatility. Then there's also a light tracked vehicle in the works for US army infantry brigades: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=manKGmYvQog

>>134318 Those things are the future ancestors of meme machines i am am talking about. But still, a crucial part of its evolution. Having legged lighter war machines that outperform heavier wheeled/threaded war machines is something i expect to happen before 2050. Threads/Wheels are the easy solution, but as AI advances, the robot dog model becomes the norm, just like how in nature there aren't wheeled animals. I know i seem like i speak from some kind of position of authority, so yeah. Who knows how it all turns out. I just think this is one of the more plausible and more interesting pathways for military hardware to evolve. Away from tracks and into legs. Tracks/wheels will probably still be used for logistical trucks etc for a long time, as they are just so energy and maintenance efficient. But if in 2060 we'll see some 4 legged monsters in the woods shooting shit at you and scurrying away, i wouldn't be surprised at all.

>>134324 >It can move its tracks Does it have some highly precise system, because to me this seems like a quite bad way to aim. I don't know much about tracks, but i do know that you can't really adjust anything like half of a degree with them, instead the whole body moves many CM at once. Do you have some video of it doing fine precision movements with the wheels? I am quite sceptical, but i am still giving the benefit of doubt that there is some meme system which allows to make millimeter adjustments with the threads, even if it seems very unlikely to me. Imo what seems to be going on is that the threads will bring the turret within few CM of the target, and then the turret will wiggle in the millimeters/few CM. It seems to have enough space for that.

>>134326 It doesnt seem all that accurate but this has some clips of the movement and aiming https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fARGfVA7Mm8 Then again the tactic was probably more like ambush from prepared position, fire once or twice and run away. You maybe wouldnt even take aim that many times. It reverses as fast as it goes forward and has rear facing controls just so it can quickly change positions.
