I was in the west end of Arkansas today, heading east. I noticed a flatbed truck heading west, carrying an armored vehicle on the back. My first
thought was that it was an M-1 Abrams. I was quickly disabused of that notion as I got a better look at it (unfortunately he went by too fast to get
pics). The chassis was shorter than an Abrams chassis, the turret was shorter than an Abrams turret, the side panels were angled out a little more,
so there was very little gap between the turret and the chassis, and the only weapon on the turret was the main gun, which appeared to be a 120mm.
There were no protrusions at all on the turret that I could see as he went by.
Anyone have any ideas what I saw? I looked at some foreign types, and the closest to what I saw was the Japanese Type 10, but the side panels of the
turret were angled at about 45 degrees it looked like, and the top of the chassis was straight, without the bump on the back of the Type 10.
