Response to Interlocked

Javier, of course it was "ballistic mythology", I was merely alluding to the fact that one cannot badly state that cast is better than welded (or vice-versa), the reality is much more complex. Opinions ebb and flow on the subject in each successive generation of tanks.

Name possibly (definitely imo) the greatest lineage of great modern MBT tank turret influence: T-34 (cast), Panther (welded), Centurion (cast), Chieftain (cast), Chieftain 90 / Vickers MBT (welded/layered), Shir / Challenger 1 and 2 (welded/layered). New generations thinking in new ways.

Ron
