Err, what would be the fantasy tank you're talking about?

 

Tanks that were never built so we really have no idea how they would actually perform.

Well, most designs can be safely estimated with power to weight ratio, soft stats may vary of course but engineering can give relatively good approximation.

A 700 HP engine used in a 33 ton chassis will provide pretty good mobility unless the suspension is inherently made for something different than speed (but that is not the case of the E-25), transmission and power pack in the rear means the tank is decently balanced with the only limit being gun overhang, something solved by the use of either howitzers, autocannons or the PAW guns.

 

Just to give you something real to relate with, this is the closest design (using the same suspension and power train type planned for E-25) ever produced: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzer_58

Basically this is a more compact and agile AFK Panther which might not be as good to ramming but can do both active and passive scouting with a decent chance of success.

Awesome Panther's good though, I dunno why do you want to remove it/move it a tier up .-. It could use a better turret armor and traverse speed though, other than that it's fine
