Battery technology or FUEL CELL technology needs to be improved.

YES, that'll make 7th generation military!
If you can only store 300W.h/kg - imagine how "UNDERPOWERD", your "ele ...


Yes, I realised there would be a serious power to weight ration problem, hence suggesting new, lightweight armour etc.

I think there are MILITARY MINDS who think MBT is out dated and obsolete.

Afterall, most medium to big power state possess ARMOUR PIERCING weapon even down to the infantryman.
Of course, when battle is a surprise - INITIALLY a lot of the INFANTRYMAN might not have been issued with the item.......

....then the problem with the heavy 50t to 60t vehicle, it's is FUEL GUZZLING appetite, beside being a massively costlier weapon, and more difficult to deploy. (That's probably one of the reasons why the medium SHERMAN tank was deployed massively in World War 2)

Now it's being favoured the 4 AXLE APC with massive TOP SIDE remote control weapon options.

Armour technology is being improved further for survivability.

Cheerios!

With the current type of conflicts happening around the wrold, the MBT is of limited use but imagine another "big battle" war envisioned by NATO and the Warsaw Pact, or another Korean action etc and MBTs have a huge value, not to mention the effect on unsupported infantry with limited amounts of ATGWs to counter these behmoths. The only problem I see, currently, for MBT operators, is logistics and transportability.

Of course the USA does not have it NOW.

IF it had, it would be BOASTING ABOUT IT now.
No other states can challenge it - i can imagine the VERSATILITY of use and the many kind of new ASSET possible!
