Fellow tankers, I give to you the m60a2 starship

This beauty is a m60 hull with a 152mm cannon, if it were to be introduced to world of tanks it would likely have heat and he as round choices. Personally I would love to see this tank implemented as an accurate medium tank with ~.33 accuray but cwith a long aim time ~3.4 seconds and a low dpm of 2.7 rounds per minute. It would be a fun back line support tank with a punchy gun.

as much as WG loves to give america their 155mm guns, the 152mm on the Starship might be TOO advanced..... well. i guess that doesnt matter the Japanese Type-74 is in the game.

but i can see the US line having a second Medium line, as the US was one of the first countries and earliest to make 'MBTs' out of Medium tanks. The M60 is already in-game somewhere. 
The issue is that the Starship was based off the M60, which was based off the M48, a tier 10 in WoT.

The M60 is a CW reward tank. I also think you can buy it in the Bond shop as well.

Yes, time to revise the US Medium (and Heavy) lines.

Just play the Sheridan with the derp gun. The long aim time would be terrible on a medium with a bad  Camo rating. Now if you gave it a 2 sec aim time and good gun handling soft sats with say heat rounds with 290ish pen and maybe a “gold” HE round with 105mm pen... then I would be interested.

Give it actual guided missiles. We already have pneumatic suspension, autoreloaders, and double-barreled tanks, why not add another gimmick? Make it so you have to remain stationary to fire them and give them only limited maneuverability (both true in real life) and it would be perfectly balanced (if not a little underpowered considering 90% of fighting is at point blank range).

I think it would be a fun and interesting vehicle with 550-650 alpha.

Didn't the Starship use the same Shaleileigh (sp) rocket as the (current) Sherridan?

Since when does this game have support tanks anymore.  At this map size at these vision ranges, at tier ten everything is a front line tank, either you have armor or no armor.  You have good alpha or crapalpha, good dpm, or crapdpm
