Example text

They recommended that such a system be developed for use in tanks after 1965. If necessary, it was suggested that the development of high velocity guns and ammunition be curtailed to provide the required funds. However, it was expected that research on shaped charge warheads would continue. No doubt this was essential, since if subsonic missile systems completely replaced the kinetic energy weapons, the shaped charge or other chemical energy warheads would be the only means available to defeat enemy armor.

Since the T96 turrets were not expected to be available for some time, it was recommended that their four chassis be used initially to mount two M48A2 tank turrets and two T54E2 tank turrets armed respectively with the 90mm gun M41 and the 105mm gun T140E3. This would permit early engineering and user tests and would provide insurance against the failure of the smooth bore gun development program. The nomenclature for the T95 series vehicles was revised by OTCM 36543, which was approved on 13 June 1957.

This was the same weapon used in the heavy tank T43 series and it resulted in an estimated total vehicle weight of over 45 tons. Study B utilized a lightweight version of the 120mm gun with a recoil mount in the T96 turret. This weapon was later designated as the 120mm gun T123E6. The estimated total vehicle weight for this combination was between 43 and 44 tons. Unlike Study A, the analysis indicated that the lighter weapon could be balanced and stabilized in the turret. The concept in Study C was armed with the 105mm gun T140E3 in a T96 turret with a recoil system.
