Hunnicutt's Armored Car book covers it. I don't have it in front of me, but as I recall, it did pretty well. Of course the 37mm cannon was nothing much by the end of the war.

As I recall, it was used extensively for scouting and other recon work, which it was very good at. Very mobile. It was used as a command car by commanders too, as was the turret-less M20 Utility Car.

It might be a bit tight on a regular width hull but perhaps better to combine a pair of hulls side by side to get enough room inside to fit the turret?

Extremely wheeled. Hanomag base will allow more room for turret



Note: this case is better scaled. In the last 8-rad, turret was a bit downsized.

ISTR that a Merkava prototype was initially tested with a turret from the M48......

I wonder if we can still call the result of a M48 turret indeed operationally paired with a Merkava hull a M48......

In one of the old "Born In Battle" issues there was an image of the Merkava prototype vehicle that had an M48 turret which gave it an unusual appearance so you are not far from the reality of it with your M60 turret on the Merkava hull :)

The VK30.02 (DB) powered by a MB507 diesel motor, with external leaf suspension. Combat weight of 34 tonnes and a max speed of 54 kph.

Great idea! You can get the rear suspension/tires from a Zvezda GAZ-AAA, which is relatively cheap.

I just checked - the Dragon halftrack variants are $$. The ancient Monogram 1/32 kit is under $20.

In some ways, I have weird opinions on the T-62. I think it was underrated, under-appreciated, and totally unnecessary—largely a waste of effort that would have been better spent refining the next generation.

Developmentally, it was basically a dead end. It passed almost nothing on to the next generation of tanks (apart from the interim early T-64s that had the 115mm gun until the 125mm was ready). It was effectively a stretched and upgunned T-54/55. All that having been said, though, the T-54/55 was a good starting point, and the idea of a tank with the armor profile, simplicity, and reliability of the T-55, but a much, much better gun was not a bad pitch, but it was probably too much trouble for too little of an incremental improvement. Clearly most of Warsaw Pact agreed, since they largely chose to just improve their T-55s.

Again, though, if you used or encountered T-62s, it was generally a reliable vehicle with a very good gun. The gun was also accurate with a lot of penetration and state of the art ammunition. Many T-62s in the 1960s and 1970s also had superior infrared night fighting equipment to the Western vehicles they were pitted against.

Aesthetically, the turret's always been a bit too egg-shaped for me and the gun is almost comically long, leading to that unbalanced appearance at the back of the turret with no bustle, so your modified AMX 30 turret addresses both of those issues.

Cheers,

Logan

Well the Sd.Kfz. 1422 Sturmhaubitze 42 Ausf.G (StuH 42) did mount a 105mm gun in real life so it may be possible (provided recoil etc was manageable).  That said, it would look a tad bigger I think - see StuH 42 below for comparison:

Great work Carlos! 

Your Sherman with the smaller gun is something I have been thinking about for some time.  Though, my version would keep the Sherman turret and install a 57mm/6-pdr to create an infantry support tank.  Something that could have been assigned to the tank company of the infantry regiment. 

Your M18 with the M8 Turret also looks like a great combination of parts.  I see no reason why you could not increase the size of the main gun provided there is room for the weapon to recoil in to the confines of the turret. 

Sherman turret on the M18 looks just as I had imagined it would.  Wonder if there would be sufficient clearance under the turret basket for the thing to fit as a drop-in modification.  Ammunition storage might be a bit less but it would be a great little tank with a speed advantage.
