Your Ideal Tank Contest

I'm currently working on a conversion of the 350 KG Renault UE chenillette armoured tractor :)

MrVic: My mind keeps wandering to doing a tank based off the Panthers suspension. Being one of the most stable weapons
platforms in WW2 I just can't bring myself to do it.
First off the suspension even once implemented was superior
but had one major drawback It was near imposible to get to and repair and it was highly complicated system crammed into
reliatively small space. Combine that with the German interwoven road wheel design, where if a tank using that setup was
hit and a road wheel was damaged in the back row you not only had to take off the damaged wheel but also the 2 in front
of it. These 2 factors alone make repair and maintence insanely long processes.
Right now I prefer to deal with a higher weight distribution and think more in the lines of "all round ideal" instead of "Ideal when its all working okay..."
