Turk Altay Main Battle Tank w/RWS Anti-Tank Missiles...

Doing my daily scroll of events and ran across this pic of the Altay Main Battle Tank.  Haven't noticed before (maybe you did) but its sporting anti-tank missiles on the turret.

Combine this with the recent upgrade we've seen on their M-60's of adding a mast sensor and you have something that should be able to reach far with both missiles and its gun.

Of course this brings up a different issue.

Are we getting to a point where we're slamming too many responsibilities/capabilities onto our armored vehicles.  Flexibility is prized but at what point do you say enough is enough.

When looking at US armor I can see a push (especially with networks becoming a thing) to putting anti-aircraft missiles on all our vehicles just to cover gaps in coverage.

Too much or just right?  I don't know.
