T23 USA medium tank remote control

One of interesting features of T23 medium tank was the remote control. One of T23 tested at Fort Knox had the ability to be driven by remote control from the turret or by carrying remote controller out of the vehicle. Two controllers were necessary for full power, the remote master controller and remote accelerator controller. Both could be installed into the turret. It’s likely that the two remote controllers were very big, because the Armored Board considered the remote controller an unnecessary feature and reccomended to eliminate the remote control equipment and save the space for more useful items

Una delle caratteristiche interessanti del carro medio T23 era il telecomando. Uno dei T23 testati a Fort Knox pare avesse la capacità di essere guidato da un telecomando dalla torretta o portando telecomando fuori dal veicolo. Due telecomandi erano necessari per la piena potenza, un telecomando principale e un regolatore dell’accelerazione. Entrambi potevano essere installati nella torretta. E’ probabile che i due telecomandi fossero molto grandi, in quanto la commissione Armored considerò il telecomando una funzione inutile e consigliò di eliminare le apparecchiature di del controllo a distanza e salvare lo spazio per elementi più utili
