The US Army has been testing the concept of autoloaders in tanks since WW2, with a very wide variety of mechanism designs being tried. In this video, I cover some of the earliest designs, the T16 which was installed in the M5 light tank, and the T30E1, T37 Phase II, T41E1, T69 and T54E1. As a bonus, I think I use a number of photos not previously released.
Later videos will take up from T54 and move through to today.
