Blast from the past. M48 Super Patton.

This blast from the past makes me wonder.  Are we seeing the return of the Light and Medium tanks?  Take a look at the Centauro 2 Mobile Gun System.  If it was a tracked vehicle it would be considered a medium tank.  Same could probably be said of the CV90120.  The concept that the US Army is working on for its protected gun system could most certainly be called a light tank.

Here is a thought to get the armor enthusiasts going.  Is heavy armor dead?

Are we finally swinging back to the point where mobility and firepower trump armored protection?
