@kach22i: I agree backwards would probably be better. I think I have heard of tank sqaudrons turning the turret around if they need to go faster. A CFD would prove it though! Thanks for the pics BTW. Also, I like the national pride, none of these outsider options! Murica!

I like the quote about the exhaust temp. I'm surprised they don't turbo it to use up some of that energy. It is a diesel, isn't it?

@RedDevil: I know somebody in the Navy and another in the Air Force. Don't know of somebody who can let me "borrow" a tank for the day. Besides, where do I hook up my Ultragauge!

@elhigh: I'm not sure what you meant by the quote, but I assume you were eluding to fixing the millions of cars on the road, rather than a few tanks. If that is what you meant, then my response would be this is just a fun excercise basedoff a day-dream thought I had. If that's not what you meant can you please explain.

Would the shape of a WWI tank work today (obviously with updated hardware)?

@NachtRitter: Yeah, they need to get one of those headliner type antennaes! Too bad the belly pans from the factory are X amount tons!

OK, in all seriousness, can somebody do this so we can see what it looks like? Thanks!
