    They can be made smaller and lighter, and they can carry larger guns. However, they are also pretty much impossible to NBC seal, and the guns usually have to be loaded by magazine, and often the crew has to go outside the tank to change it.

    Imagine a panzer II type tank packing a 90mm or 105mm.

    Or a WW2 hellcat with a Tiger gun.

    They were usually lower velocity shorter barrel 90mm or 105mm firing heat but they weren't really designed for anti tank role.

    panther was like 50 tons . AMX-13 was like 13 . Panther had 4 men , ignoring the front machine gunner/radio operator . AMX had 3 . Could be transported by air , even if took dismounting the turret (which was no big thing for the prepared enough) . Panther's armour was not impervious to things that could fire on it after 1945 , so AMX was much more mobile and small so it did its best not be hit in the first place . And they had the same firepower , meaning the same gun with autoloading thing and AMX could fire 12 rounds and it would have to retire and reload . So maybe not particularly suited to stop a Russian offensive in the way it was meant to be , but there were few things that could actually handle that ... So , especially today with that kind of turret , you can seat your crew in the hull , decreasing the overall height of the tank and seal with 100% efficiency , as good as the others , but tank people like require to be able to rotate with the gun , it makes you more efficient , though kids grown up playing all those computer computers might outperform dynosaurs of my generation and the like .
