CQB?[edit]

Just a little thought at CloseQuarterBattles.... If the Rommel is a CloseCombatVehicle, isn't the Patton something else? Yes, the AC/10 isn't exactly a far-reaching weapon by modern standards, but it certainly is not a specialized CCWeapon such as its larger cousin! I'd vote for revision, but this category-stuff is hard to resolve... Just gimme your thoughts on that if you have any...; )RagTag 18:28, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

I would say MBT-Main Battle Tank. --Neufeld 18:34, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
Just what I wanted to say after checking the MBT-category.... :DRagTag 18:36, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
TRO:3039 specifically states that the Rommel & Patton were created for defending cities. That said, I agree that, in practice, the Patton functions more like an MBT. --Scaletail 01:20, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
