ANYTHING that is TRACKED and ARMORED is a TANK. US Army STUDY: We need TURRETLESS TANKS NOW! Turretless STUG Tanks Rule! The Germans call all their armored, tracked tanks, "Panzers". Since they co-invented tank warfare with the British THEIR DEFINITION IS WHAT COUNTS not American whoppertanktards who want only turreted heavy turreted tracks to be known as tanks; a M113 Gavin in German Combat Engineer use is called a "Minenwerferpanzer 64" Contrary to popular mythology, the most successful tank of WW2, was a LIGHT one, and without a turret--the German Sturmgeschutz or "STUG" was built all through the war and remained extremely lethal and effective killing over 20-30, 000 allied tanks. Most of the world's army's tankers have not only got their WW2 history all wrong, they persist in huge turrets on top that are going to continue to cause them to get incinerated--slapping heavier and heavier armor is not going to salvage the bad tank design mess they have created--today's heavy 70 ton tanks are still vulnerable and ever more immobile after all this work-around-the-huge-turret antics are done--when the solution is LESS IS MORE--get rid of turret! Don't get hit in the first place! The Germans understood this, and one smart group of technotacticians, the practical Swedes acted on it with their amazing Strv 103 "S" light-medium tank described in detail in this video.
