So i was browsing the net and i come across this article with a strange looking AMX-50 with a normal tank turret (not the sloped house roof turret). You can find it here http://tanknutdave.c...nch-amx50-tank/ . I was just wondering what you guys would think of this being implemented into the game as an alternative and maybe stronger but less effective gun so that the AMX-50 can compete with other heavy armored heavy tanks.

Can you please point out, which picture you mean?

 

All I see are different photos of the same oscillating turret. Some are taken from unusual angles, e.g. straight above.

 

However the main thing is, that oscillating turret enabled to mount the auto-loader, because the gun wouldn't move inside the turret.

In conclusion, a classical turret design (if there was any) should remove the autoloader.

 

All the other autoloaders were

  • variations like Strv 103, which had the complete tank affixed and no turret at all or
  • later tanks with a different system (e.g. computerized like in modern MBT tanks, but even the M1A2 Abrams used/-s manual loading) or
  • having drawbacks like the gun must be moved into a certain position for the autoloader to operate or
  • bugged by an unreliable autoloader system (which is why https://en.wikipedia...wiki/Autoloader lists M1A2 and Leopard 2 as tanks that don't even bother with autoloading).
