The T49 is an American tier 5 tank destroyer.

Development started in the spring of 1942. After undergoing trials, the decision was made to replace the 57 mm gun with a 75 mm gun. The new design passed trials in the fall of 1942 but never saw service.

The T49 is considered a very fun and overall good tank to play. Its best features are its guns, particularly the 76mm M1A1, along with its superior speed and acceleration. Stock, it is very weak and has low engine power, but once fully upgraded, it is a force to be reckoned with. It can maintain its 61 kph top speed quite easily over all terrain, and though the turret traverse is incredibly slow the tank excels at flanking and exposing weak sides and rear. Its gun can penetrate almost any armor it comes across when hitting weak spots, and by the time they've been hit you'll most likely have had time to run away. In higher tiers, it can even be used as a heavily armed scout. Like most turreted TDs, its armor is sloped but incredibly thin, so don't expect to bounce much. In fact, if you try to use it as a classic stationary sniper TD, you'll probably be destroyed without mercy. However, you will be very successful if you use this tank's superior speed and maneuverability to its best. A good example of this fact is that due to your high speed, you can "chase" enemy scouts, and get some damage done before the scout escapes.

The T49 leads to the M18 Hellcat.

Historical Info

The manufacture of two pilot models of the T49 tank was initiated in the spring of 1952. They are now being subjected to engineering tests, which are scheduled for completion in the near future. However, in the summer of 1953 Army Field Forces indicated that they were no longer interested in this tank, their reason being that the low-pressure guns developed for its main armament could not guarantee an 88% probability of first-round hit. Because of this withdrawal of user interest, it is possible that work on the T49 will not be continued beyond engineering testing and that the tank itself will not be put into production. The T49 Gun Motor Carriage was a variant of the M18 Hellcat.

Design

On April 18, 1942, it was agreed to construct two prototypes that would be identified as the T49 Gun Motor Carriage. It was to be mobile, weigh around 12 tons, have a crew of five, reach a speed of 50 mph, armor was to be 7/8" on the turret, and 3/8" all around on the hull.

The first prototype was tested and as a result the Tank Destroyer Command and the Ordnance Department wanted the second prototype to have a 75 mm M3 gun. This became the T67 Gun Motor Carriage. It was to have its armor increased to 1" in front. The side armor was reduced and the top and bottom was increased.

The prototypes had helical coil suspensions. Two Buick 320 cubic inch gasoline engines produced a total of 330 HP.

In late 1942, after the testing of a prototype at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, the Special Armored Vehicle Board recommended that the T67 have a standard engine, a 76 mm gun, and a torsion bar suspension. The Secretary of War approved the building of six prototypes. These would carry the 76 mm M1 in an open turret without a basket. The Continental R975-C1 engine was used. These prototypes were designated the T70 Gun Motor Carriage.
