How The T95 Became The T28.

The T-95 Tank is one of those cool, filmic designs that feels as if it was imagined by steampunk weaponeers. The actual program was a real one and the Americans were creating a tank destroyer based on the old Pershing chassis. Armed with a 105mm gun, it would have been a world-beater right after WWII; and designers wondered still whether they could put a 120 mm on it. At Aberdeen Proving Grounds it was slow and cumbersome and because it did not have a rotating turret, it had to go under another classification than MBT. It became the T28. It was too slow for the Army or the Marines and would have been artillery fodder.

 

There’s Washington for you. Change the name. That’ll fix it.
