So i was fooling around in tank inspector that i installed today, checking armor and all... something in T110E5 looked strange. Long story short i made 2 gifs. M103 is kinda drunk too. May the vodka be with you.

You're saying about offset roadwheels due to torsion bars suspension? IIRC almost every tank with this kind of suspension have this "feature".

Are you sure? German tanks had this suspension that u say placed between the road wheels in parallel, that's why they where high profile tanks, russians had christie suspension alowing bigger ride, already in use in fast early and pre war ru tanks, us hellcat torsion bars suspension was another newer design, i think it's independent for most wheels in this case (as i see at least) and runs along the side of the chassis.

If I recall correctly it was so that the tanks wouldn't start rocking back and forth. Not to mention that the torsion bars run across the width of the entire tank, so you are pretty much forced to offset them.

IIRC the IS-7 is one of the few tanks that didn't have offset torsion bars.

Here is the Tiger's suspension: 

Spoiler

 You can notice that it is offset.

Ok u must be right guys, so E5 model is correct, but M103 model seems wrong it has symmetrical road wheels and only the suspension is moved, also in one side track "falls" to the ground behind the last road wheel.
