M48 has 0.02 lower turret bloom. M48 without vstab is the same turret bloom as M60 with.

See i think that's BS - is there any justification for that from a historical perspective? I assume the M60 came out later. I didn't grind for the 48 because i had the M60, and I'm not sure if this is enough of ar reason to do it. 

Isn't there something the M60 does better, like terrain resistance?

It gets about 2km/h better top speed but pretty much everything else is worse. And who knows whether it will be getting the new turret or not.

It seems that it kept the old turret with the giant cupola.

Rip whoever took a shitty hipster tank.

M60 used to have better gun stats iirc. Got left behind by previous M48 buffs.

M48 got its "stock" guns removed (90m and the m46's 105) and the new turret, everything else is the same.

What does the e50m have going for it? Still can't follow the bandwagon

german armor was the best armor in WW2 the allied tanks just couldn't handle it so the german tanks just killed everyone because they had the best tank designs and were superior to anything else

Obviously, which is why they won so much. Well minus that whole snafu at Kursk and Stalingrad and a few other places. Also yeah, some caught on fire while climbing hills and Panthers couldn't rotate their turrets on slopes greater than 13 degrees, but the steel was definitely the best. Also the welds were very pretty.

not to mention how fuel efficient their tanks were or how crucial it was to diversify their logistics requirements to meet the needs of each new tank they fielded

Not that it mattered much, when your army is mostly horse-powered and you are still running out of fuel...

I will give you a US dollar, not any of that Canadian or Australian cheap money, if you make this a post on the official forums.

What these silly western propagandists don't realize is that these cracks are also crew ventilation. The Germans were one step ahead of everyone. 

We're all lucky that Hitler never managed to make more than 1.5 Mauses. If he had gotten the complete two he could have sent one to each front, and then we'd all be posting in German......
