Example text

To further define the technical characteristics of all three vehicles, a conference was held at Detroit Arsenal on 1 October 1954. This resulted in several modifications to the original concepts. The TL-1 as presented at the Questionmark III conference was armed with the smooth bore 90mm gun T208 modified by shortening the barrel by three feet. The revised As mentioned previously, the TL-1 concept presented at the Questionmark III conference was recommended for development as the future medium gun tank.

Unlike Study A, the analysis indicated that the lighter weapon could be balanced and stabilized in the turret. The concept in Study C was armed with the 105mm gun T140E3 in a T96 turret with a recoil system. This arrangement resulted in an estimated total vehicle weight of a little over 44 tons. A balanced gun and stabilization were not considered feasible with this combination. Study D installed the turret from the T54E2 tank with its 105mm gun T140E3 on the T95 chassis. The estimated total vehicle weight was slightly under 45 tons, but the armor protection of the turret was not equal to that of the T95 tank.

This gun also was fed by an automatic loader producing an estimated maximum firing rate of 300 rounds per minute. Both vehicles were only 80 inches in height and 98 inches in width. The length without the gun was 192 inches for the R-34 compared to 190 inches for the R-35. The proposed Wabnitz leveling system is illustrated in these two views. Two turret bearing rings at an angle with each other permitted compensation for sloped terrain and extended the elevation range of the gun. 38 A late concept of the Rex I (top left) can be compared with a similar view of the Rex II (above) and a sectional drawing, also of the Rex II (below).
