Supertest: T78 Full Details

The T78 was a July 1943 project to arm the Chaffee chassis with a 90mm gun in an M36 turret. By that time, however, the Chaffee wasn’t even in the prototype stage, so this concept was purely theoretical. It was put on half in August 1943, because the Chaffee chassis was yet to prove itself. Despite the fact the Chaffee project was successful, the T78 development was never resumed.

At the moment, the T78 is planned to be introduced in World of Tanks as Tier VI Premium tank destroyer. The full details have been made available by WOT Express and a massive thanks to Milkyman for creating us a 3D model of the tank so we can have a preview of it. Please remember, all the details are subject to change before final release from Supertest.

  1. I had hoped for a crew of five … shame :(. But kudos about the 3D model – awesome job, Milkyman!

  2. Was really hoping that if the T78 ever made it to the game, it would be as a replacement for the T25/2, since the T25/2 is a fake design.

    But now I guess the only thing that could replace it would be the Super Hellcat…

    1. but Super Hellcat is the same in WoT
      irl it was M18 Hellcat with the 76mm gun but in wot you can mount this big ass turret and 90mm gun into it.
      So does the Super Hellcat has better enginge or what?
