      IKR, it’s like they ruin the ability of TDs to hide in the corner and snipe and HTs to just roll down with no fear! These flankers should be stopped!!!

        Because technically, the M551 was an amphibious tank made to reply to the soviet amphibious PT76. The small hull (that you can see here: http://i.imgur.com/qKuEymW.png ) is covered by aluminum tanks full of polystyrene foam for buoyancy. That’s what is represented with this spaced armor.
        The T49 ingame is in reality not related to the XM551. The T49 is a prototype derived from the M41, characterized by its T49 turret mounted on a M41 hull (the hulls of the T49 and M41 are exactly the same, because the goal was just to increase the firepower of the M41). Schematics of the historical T49: http://i.imgur.com/VKr43Nt.jpg
        Additionally, there was a prototype called M41 / XM551 turret testbed. This prototype that had the M41 hull with the XM551 turret, to allow to test the turret that was ready when the hull of the XM551 was not.
        To make the ingame T49 unique in its kind, and have a choice of secondary turret and gun, WG decided (and I’m glad of it) to merge these two prototypes as a single tank, because they both share the same M41 hull and just differ by their respective turrets / guns.
        I hope these explanations help you to see what is what. See also this article explaining more in detail with pictures of both prototypes: http://ftr.wot-news.com/2014/02/18/t49-light-tank-us-upcoming-tier-8/

    Odd looking tank. In all the pictures of the Sheridan I see online, none seem to have this boxy (and rather ugly) backside. I wonder what they are basing that on?

    Question? Are the current tier 8’s moving to tier 9? Or are we getting new 9’s? Cause the Wz is identical to the tier 8 and the T49 has the Sheridans turent and gun already.

    1. ndiver says:

      If you look the article, the XM551 will have two guns: the 152mm and a 105mm, which was considered in the early development of this tank. The picture you show is a later test installing the 105mm L7 in the M551.

    1. Well the T49 is UP too compared to Ru251, T54LT and the rest of them, that doesn’t stop lots of people from playing it. Why? For the big KABOOM of course, delivered roughly every 8s on T10 instead of 20 we have now on T8. Plus if i’m correct it’s hull is covered in (very thin, 3mm?) spaced armor, so you can’t pen it back with HE. Can’t wait for it!
