All about Tonks! Errr...Tanks!

So since the other thread was supposed to be about Generals preparing for the last war but sidled up to a discussion about tanks its probably a good idea to make a thread about WW1 & WW2 tank design. I'm sure we'll end up talking about modern tanks as well if this gets going.

Subjects may include:
  • Tanks that never were
  • Why certain tanks sucked or were awesome or were bizarre
  • "What were they thinking?" odd moments in tank design.
  • .etc. No point in me limiting topics

So for Tanks that Never Were (at least not in production) I like to look at the US Medium Tank M7. This was supposed to be a light tank that could carry a Sherman level 75mm but quickly bloated into a 29 ton Medium tank that held no advantage over the Sherman - yet tons of money was still spent on its development. Eventually the M24 would become the US Light Tank.
