It is a thirty year old tank. It makes good sense that the battle armor budget can be improved on. Yet after saying all that, what really is needed is to swap in an engine that uses the power system we have understood through the original work by Tesla.
The machine becomes independent of fuel.
the design was designed to allow swap ups of the electronics so that is no issue.
The next full redesign will include such power and also gravity control plates that may even allow it to float along in the air as well. Shades of the Slammers of David Drake.
