World of Tanks Supertest – British light tank A46

Home News WarGaming news World of Tanks devs diaries World of Tanks news

The British A46 project started in 1943 to replace the USA’s Stuart, and later Chaffee, in British service. A contract was place with Vickers for a tank of 14 to 16 tons mounting a 77mm (as subsequently in Comet). Transmission and suspension were kept as simple as possible to reduce power loss at the sprockets, and the tank owed a good deal to the experience which had been gained from Harry Hopkins and Tetrarch. A46 was intended to be air-portable. The wooden mock-up led to many modifications, among them, being the substitution of a Meteorite V-8 350 h.p. engine in place of the 210 h.p. GMC6-71 motor originally proposed. Only a prototype was built and it was turned into an experimental APC named CT-26.

Il progetto britannico A46 iniziò nel 1943 per sostituire lo Stuart preso dagli Stati Uniti, e successivamente lo Chaffee, in servizio britannico. Fu stipulato un contratto con Vickers per un carro da 14 a 16 tonnellate che montava un 77mm (come successivamente il Comet). La trasmissione e la sospensione furono mantenute il più semplice possibile per ridurre la perdita di potenza dei pignoni e il carro dovette molto all’esperienza acquisita da Harry Hopkins e Tetrarch. A46 doveva essere aviotrasportabile. Il modello in legno ha portato a molte modifiche, tra cui la sostituzione con un motore Meteorite V-8 350 h.p. al posto del motore da 210 h.p. GMC6-71 inizialmente proposto. È stato costruito solo un prototipo ed è stato trasformato in un APC sperimentale chiamato CT-26.
