The Location of the Tank Transmission Over Time

This research project will analyze the location of the transmission of the tank transmission over the interwar to world war two period. Over that period time, the transmission location on most tanks was not consistent even between generational upgrades, so research teams must have found a reason why. This project will investigate the reasons for the transmission being where it is throughout the research.

Personal Statement

I have always liked tanks, along with a variety of metal machines, since a young age, and now that I had the ability to research about whatever I wanted, I had no idea what I wanted to do. Eventually I found people arguing online about why the tank transmission is where it is, but no one seemed to have a well researched, detailed answer, so I decided to figure it out for myself. Although not super useful for most people, I had fun researching it along the way, and that is what matters to me.
