I know there has already been some discussion about the proposed extension of the american light/autoloader tank branch but so far I haven't seen anything at least semi-official. If someone can provide a link to official data, please do so.

If the topic is still open to ideas, I'd like to present mine. The general problems with status quo are:
  • M21 should be a predecessor to M24 Chaffee
  • The jump between M5 Stuart and M24 Chaffee is too sharp (unlike T-50, M5 Stuart has regular MM)
  • With both M24 Chaffee and T71 in-game, the lack of M41 Walker Bulldog doesn't make sense
(list is incomplete)

Current status:

->M5->M24
.....>M7 ->T21->T71->T69->

Proposal

->M5->T21->M24->M41->T92
.....>M7 ->L-1->T71->T69->

Notes:
  • T21 will need a slight nerf
  • M24 currently has a weird MM, I'd wait and see if it needs rebalancing
  • M7 leading to L-1 is less than ideal but M7 was a dead-end anyway
  • Some extra research paths (M41->T71->T92) might be interesting
  • T57 heavy tank still feels out of place... ah well
  • T92 might need optimistic stats to be competitive
  • The rest of the L-series could be added later
  • USA gets a T8 light tank - Yeah!!!
