The write up seems to be almost word for word from the following book (which I just took delivery of 2nd edition 1973)

British Tanks 1946-1970 by RAC Tank Museum

The difference is that the model pictured side on shows front drive, whereas the wooden mock up shown in the book shows rear drive and the top roller positions are reversed (the two close together are at the back not the front).

The FV301 could carry 80 77mm rounds in it small size as well.

By the way the book is really a small pamphlet but has some interesting pictures of the Gas Turbine Conqueror hull, FV304 (partially gutted hull), FV3802 (hugh angle of fire on that gun)  FV3805 (short barrel) and a Centurion CDL.

The Conqueror is also described as initially a Infantry Tank Project then progressed to Universal Tank and ended up as a Tank destroyer, there is also mention that the 120mm gun from the Conqueror was trialled unsuccesfully on the Centurion?

Rhino is cool, because BT-7 was a wheeled vehicle too. It actually didn't go nearly so fast with tracks on. Finns made a DERP version of it. Its hilarious and should deffinitely be added :-)

FV-300 series is a variant of the A-46, a later version. As you say the 301 was the light tank.

TV-10000 Rhino was a wheel armoured car, that originally was designed to mount a Turret that I believe was akin to the Saladin one. This turret only partial revolved due to the Missile rack mount behind it. However as there's no Missiles in the game, just strip them off and give the turret a full rotation.
NExt you'll say "no wheeled vehicles". Well they test fitted it with tracks:

I would love to see the rhino in game, would add some spicy variety to gameplay :)

Ув. разработчики. Можете озвучить кандидатов на роль топ лт Франции и Великобритании? Каковы их отличительные особенности? Спасибо.

Франция - АМХ-13-90, Вы его знаете, Великобритания - А46 ЕМНИП, похож на Чаппи

Dear Developers, can you announce candidates for top tier french and britsh light tanks? Можете озвучить кандидатов на роль топ лт Франции и Великобритании? Каковы их отличительные особенности? Спасибо.

France: Amx 13 90, you already know; UK: A46 As far as I remember like the Chaffee. What are their distinguishing features? Thank you.



P.S. Plz thumb up the VK 2801 (DB), so that it maybe becomes a Tier VI light tank.
