Sample text

The fuel tanks for the phase I vehicle were located in the hull separating them from the crew in the turret. Space was provided in the heavily armored inner turret for a crew of four, although only two were required to operate the tank, the gunner and the driver. These two were located in the front at the right and left of the cannon respectively. The driver could operate fully protected inside the turret or with his head and shoulders exposed above the roof. The tank commander was at the right rear with the loader on his left.

50 Above is the mock-up of the 90mm gun tank T95. Note the bulldozer mounted on the vehicle. The first pilot vehicle of the T95 series, a T95E2 with the M48A2 turret, was completed at Detroit Arsenal during May 1957 and shipped to Aberdeen Proving Ground on 7 June. Its registration number was 9B1048 (chassis number 1). The second pilot was a T95E3, registration number 9B1050 (chassis number 2), with the turret and armament from the 105mm gun tank T54E2. It was completed in July and shipped to the Yuma, Arizona Test Station in August for engineering tests.

The first program consisted of proposals for a new medium gun tank and two specialized combat vehicles. The latter were a ten ton airborne light tank and a one man armored reconnaisance aircraft with a tracked carrier. As presented on 17 May 1955, the medium gun tank was referred to as the Rex. Later, it was redesignated as the Rex I after the development of subsequent versions. The Rex tank incorporated many of the features included in some of the earlier proposals. The driver was located in the turret with the gunner and the tank commander.
