Turret looks like a bloody rocket on a puny chassis with a puny gun and puny tracks.
The best is that is floats!
I wonder what compelled them to go beyond just being on paper.
Did no one after seeing this say "You know what, lets not go along with this tank, its a silly idea."
Rule of cool of course.
It was a simpler time back then (during the 50s). Weird designs had a chance back then and not just some slabs of regtangles like most modern tanks...
And it has no real advantages over any contemporary designs...
If I recall correctly, this tank was designed so it would not be knocked over if a nuke went off nearby, and that would have been seen as a benefit in the 1950's.
That's the Object-269.
TV8 was counterpart of obj269 - it was also able to survive nuclear blast
So, this is a mutated tank from Cernobyl?
