the best medium tank of WW2



Panther tank. this was hands down the best medium tank of WW2. 700hp engine gave it high road speed and its 75mm/L70 gun could punch through most armour. It's frontal armour of 14 and 12cm RHA was better than that of the more famous Tiger tank

M60 Patton Main Battle Tank

In 1957, it was determined that the Soviets were in the process of developing a new medium tank, the T-62, with a 115 mm gun, superior to that of the American M48 tank. In response, an M48 tank was fitted with a new engine and later with a variant of the British 105 mm L7 series gun. This new vehicle (originally designated M68) was put into production in 1959, reclassified as the M60 and entered service in 1960. Over 15,000 M60s were constructed.

1951 U.S. M47 'Patton' Tank, originally uploaded by cliff1066.

The M47 Patton was an intermediate solution basically incorporating the M46 hull and a newly shaped turret originally designed for the T42 heavy tank that did not enter service at all. It was the last US tank with a five-man design. The tank was not fitted with any NBC, night fighting or computerized fire control systems. The M-47 was powered by a Continental AV-1790-5B, 12 cylinders, 820 HP, gasoline propelled engine. The M47 entered US service in 1952 but did not see any action in the Korean War. In US service the M47 was quickly replaced by the M48 entering service in 1953

M46 Patton Tank


M46 Patton Tank, originally uploaded by architekt2.

M46 Patton Tank - In Korea, its 90 mm main gun was able to destroy the North Korean (Russian built) T-34/85 tanks and fire rounds against bunkers and fortifications. During the latter part of the war it was used for indirect fire support.
The M46 remained with troops in Korea well after the war because the armistice restricted new weapons being introduced to the theater.
