Perhaps another hint on whether this is WWII era or modern?

C'mon guys!!!!


Was it really so hard to figure out?


It's obvious its an all metal Merkava IV !!!!!! ....or is it a STRV103, T72/T90 or maybe even a Leclerc.


There you go...I think I covered all modern options in one wish list posting

Are you LISTENING Erik???????

It doesn't appear to have any suspension. SO that would lead me to believe that there may be torsion bar low in the hull, with an electronic mounting plate above that

Maybe Herman can tell us. That would be par for the course. After sending time and money on a unique vehicle, it gets mass produced just about the time you get it finished,

A Hetzer.

Scratch that Erik says it has a turret.

I think it's going to have a Sherman lower hull.

All jokes aside I thought the same thing noting the short length and steeply raked hull front

Whatever it is, that 'missing' front end cover around the transmissions should be a big hint.. much like the Sherman's comes off.

Hellcat. What the hell eh? :P

Judging by the width of the side fenders compared to the battery and the lack of internal suspension parts such as torsion bars, I believe this is something along the lines of a Sherman-like chassis with bolt-on suspension units like a VVSS or HVSS. If you look at the second picture and account for the width of the metal wall, plus the width of an VVSS or HVSS unit, I would say we're looking at an Allied WWII tank!

It's Obviously a Delorean...

But really:
Heavier Armor than the T34
Front Gearboxes
Tank Fighter not Tank Killer
Production
Saw Combat
Turreted
Not a Tiger, Hetzer, Cromwell, lee, Grant, Sherman...
Suspension???

Come On, build the list... There are a bunch of Hints and No's on this thread so far...
What have I missed, hint-wise?

Already guessed that; Erik said it wasn't (on FB reply to me).
