Example text

This version of the engine was expected to deliver a maximum of 350 gross horsepower. The flat track torsion bar suspension had four dual road wheels per side with 19 inch wide tracks. The driver-in-turret design resulted in an overall height of only 95 inches for the Rex. The width was 126 inches and the overall length with the gun forward was 348 inches. 33 Above is a photograph of a model (left) and a three view drawing (right) of the Wasp light tank. powered by an AOI-470 engine with an XT-90 transmission.

It was expected to defeat five inches of armor at 60 degrees obliquity at a range of 2000 yards using a 30mm penetrator. It also could fire standard 90mm chemical energy rounds at lower velocities. The estimated weight of the weapon was 1900 pounds and the installation was balanced and stabilized. For safety, the propellant tanks were located in the turret bustle isolated from the crew by a steel bulkhead. The hull and suspension were redesigned on the R-14 and R-15 shortening the vehicle. These changes also would appear in later versions of the Rex tank.

49 The fire control equipment in the T95E2 and T95E3 was the same as in the 90mm gun tank M48A2 and the 105mm gun tank T54E2 respectively. Both were equipped with a commander operated stereoscopic range finder, a mechanical "superelevation only" computer, and a gunner's periscope. A straight tube coaxial telescope also was provided for emergency use by the gunner. The standard two man mode of operation required the commander to determine the range which was then automatically transmitted through the computer determining the superelevation applied to the central lay reticle in the gunner's periscope.
