Personally I would prefer the Stryker MGS to be the US' primary battle tank and the Abrams to be the Heavy Battle Tank like the Paladin like you said.

The Stryker MGS is currently the closest thing you can get to a light tank in the US' arsenal nowadays.

The concept behind the Maus was outdated by the end of World War II due to the increasing lethality of ground attack aircraft and medium tanks were slowly becoming the MBTs for the major nations, so the Russians would've had no use for it after the war.

It was actually the Germans that did this to prevent it's capture by the Russians, the turret is what we now see on the one that's on display in the Kublinka Museum.

Yes but most Shermans were armed with 75mms while a fewer number were given the 76mms. While by 1944, the T-34/85 along with the IS-1/2 had became the primary tanks of the Russian army and were being produced in large numbers while the IS-3 was just starting to enter production.

Well according to what've I've read some commanders did want a 90mm fitted onto the Sherman, but Mcnair refused since he was determined to maintain the Tank Destroyer doctrine(aka TDs took on the enemy's tanks while the tanks themselves took on the infantry). Hell he didn't even really want the 76mm fitted onto the Sherman and somebody thankfully overridden him on that as well.

The only reason that the Pershing ever reached Europe was because Mcnair died in the the Battle of the Bulge and General Marshall overridden him.

Probably since I doubt a regular sherman's suspension would've been able to handle the recoil from the 90mm or the weight of the turret.

Yeah if the Allies had to fight the Soviets directly after World War 2, the Sherman wouldn't been no match for the T-34/85 since it was available in larger numbers, had better armor,and a far superior armament.

But the Allies probably would have rushed the Pershing into mass production to counter it or just equip the Sherman with a larger gun(there was a Sherman equipped with a 90mm and the Pershing's turret, but it never entered service).

People keep slamming the Sherman down, but they forget that it wasn't designed to fight enemy tanks, it was initially designed to fight and support infantry while TDs like the Hellcat, Jackson, and Wolverine took on the tanks.

The only reason why the Sherman was never replaced was because it could be easily mass produced and the war ended before any of it's possible replacements(Including the Pershing) could get into service.

Reminds me of the popup Maginot turret from Blitzkrieg 2 mod that the Allies could build early in the game. But then again that is what it's based off of.

Even then they're really more machine than human. Plus they don't have memories of their human life since I think the the Combine wiped their human memories during the process so they would be merciless against humans.

I heard somewhere that one of the main reasons that the T-34/100 never entered mass production was when it fired, the recoil would damage/bend it's turret ring.
