The T49 looks exactly the same as the m551 sheridan (search for it), it has the big derp gun in real too and the upgraded modules are even called m551 test bed. I think they should rename the tank or are they going to do the same as with chaffee and t37? Is there going to be a tier 9 M551 Sheridan? What are your thoughts about it?

The T49 was used to test the Sheridan turret and gun, however they're not the same tank. T49 is a Walker Bulldog, Sheridan is a different chassis. There is no relation beyond it being a handy chassis they had lying around to test the turret. The modules are not called 'M551 Prototype', they're 'XM551 test bed', and a test bed is something else.

And no, Sheridan will not be added as a tier 9 LT. There will be no tier 9 LTs because WG had enough trouble getting tier 8s...

When I saw this, this picture came across my mind ...

Pretty sure WG has stated that amphibious tanks won't be implemented. Can't find a source at the moment, but it's pretty obvious it's because it doesn't make sense with the current maps, and you'd also get a ton of Russian amphibtanks (BMP, PT-76) that are difficult to fit in.

 

Some other "features" of the M551 would also be difficult to model, namely gun stabilization, recoil (M551 weighs ~15t) and the Shillelagh AT missiles. M551 makes more sense in a modern armored warfare game anyway.
