The T100 project as shown on FTR way back in 2013(!) or so became part of the Russian LT

tech tree.  However I had no idea that it would end up being an upper tier tank.  Now does

anyone know what the other tanks in the Status Report post are besides the Sheridan?  Is

one of them the US built LT Scorpion?

No, the Scorpion LT is not included in those photos

 

The boxy one that looks like a T-24 is a 30 ton MBT proposal that would eventually evolve into the Leopard

 

We might also be seeing the evolution of this design with a low profile pike nosed silhouette as well(think T-10 esque)

Actually the German vehicle is a Schützenpanzer Lang HS 30 with some sort of VK turret. The project was eventually passed up for the Marder IFV.

Images on both RSR and TDB are too small to make that definite a call IMO

 

Associates of mine believe it to be an unpublished cousin to this patent design
