Re: Tank destroyers

A tank is a mobile turret.

This is a mobile bunker.

The T28 (later called 105 mm Gun Motor Carriage T95) was a prototype heavily armored tank destroyer, designed for the US Military during the Second World War. It was originally designed to be used to break through German defenses at the Siegfried Line, and was later considered as a possible participant in an invasion of the Japanese mainland. It had no conventional turret, giving it a comparatively low profile. Its total weight when fully equipped would have reached ninety-five tons. The armor was very thick compared to tanks of the time, in some places up to twelve inches thick (thirty centimeters). This was considered heavy enough to provide protection from the 88 mm gun used by German heavy tanks.
