If you look at the video you will see a lot of optical equipment on top of the cupola. That is infra-red equipment so this tank could fight at night. I thought you would find that interesting. Pointing the way to the future...

Probably best AFV design Germany used. Light, good armor protection, good gun, enough fast, small so good to hide or transport, low maintenance and cheap to produce. This should have been the production priority and build in larger numbers.
