I disagree. Building a good system is hard no matter what it is. Ever driven a KIA? They suck. And it's a very simple car.
I'm pretty sure there is plenty of real know-how in tank design. Engines are notoriously tricky because they are supposed to work on a variety of fuel (at least the Russian engines are).
