You know i've got alot of battles in at this point I feel like.. But I still have not learned a whole lot lol.. 

 

It wasn't till my drunken self played a few games last night that I realized mediums tanks have more base pen that the heavy's..  Like I never payed attention to that. AT ALL...  Like I always assumed that the heavy's would have the bigger more pen bullet cause well they are going to be fighting the heavily armored vehicles.. While the mediums fight medium and light armor.. 

NOOOOOOO thats not true silly some how the mediums have more pen than heavy's.. Which is crazy no wonder you can just obliterate heavy's... You out pen them you out DPM them.. Like it just goes on..  I never realized this..  I like heavy's cause i like the up close man to man battles, something about that just makes me enjoy it.. 

But no wonder why alot of ppl like the mediums and its hard to catch some ppl outside of them..   Anyway thats what i just learned today.

Yeah just did some quick reading and guess.. Exspence of a Heavy tank really hurt, and the Mediums could do mutiple roles very well.. Instead of one tank for one role.. Then the lighter better armor and better suspension made it where u can put bigger guns on the mediums.. 

So kind of made the Medium tank the MBT  Main battle tank. 

 

https://en.wikipedia...ain_battle_tank

 

It is also seen as direct predecessor of the T-54, as the T-44 was the first Soviet tank with a suspension sturdy enough to be able to mount a 100 mm cannon.[5] The T-54 was the first Soviet MBT, with the first prototype produced in 1945, and "was used more extensively that any other Cold War or modern MBT to date... being largely associated with colonial or independence wars all around the globe and still one of the most common pieces of equipment of any armored force today"

It was really the advancement in armored penetration technology that made Heavy Tanks obsolete.

 

No point in having 300mm of armor if something is going to just go right through it.  Thats why so many early MBT designs just went with speed and camouflage as a defense.  Once armor technology caught up the tanks got heavier again.

Yeah, I do know there is STILL heavy tanks.. But I wonder to what ratio now is the MBT... If its back heavy or is it still medium?
