Developed from 1952 as a heavy tank with more powerful armament, compared to the T-43 (M103). Restrictions were placed on the vehicle sizing as the tank was supposed to pass through the narrow tunnels of the Bernese Alps. Several designs were considered, but the project was canceled. No vehicles were ever manufactured.
Often known as the "E5", it replaced the T30 as the American tier X heavy tank in patch 0.7.2. This tank has high penetration and relatively quick reload in exchange for lower alpha damage compared to many traditional heavy tanks. The T110E5 is a relatively quick heavy with good gun handling characteristics, and since patch 0.9.10 has had excellent armor values, allowing it to force other tanks to react to its actions when driven well. The T110E5 is something of a blend of heavy and medium characteristics, allowing it to fill almost any role on the battlefield and perform well, but at the same time making it less specialized for specific roles compared to many other tier X tanks.
The T110E5 retains the 'eggshell' style of front hull armor layout from the M103 and has greater protection in the areas of high thickness both in the hull and the turret. However, there is little increase in effective protection from the previously thin areas such as the lower plate. The T110E5 also has a prominent commander's cupola that invites shells from opposing players. However, such an obvious target can be a boon as much as a liability in the hands of a player familiar with baiting and misdirecting cupola shots from opponents; the cupola is more heavily armored than most US cupolas and can surprise many an opponent looking for a quick shot. Only very high penetrating shells (250+) will be able to go through the cupola since the armor buff of patch 0.9.10.
Sadly, in patch 0.9.17.1 the E5's cupola was nerfed to lower than it was before, making it a new weak spot for the E5.
The T110E5 marks the end of its American heavy line.

Pros and Cons
- Good overall gun depression and stats, great DPM
- Very strong turret face armor
- Good view range
- Decent gun handling as of Update 1.10
- Compact silhouette compared to other heavy tanks
- Poor side and rear hull armor
- Large and obvious commander's hatch weak point on top of the turret
- Vulnerable ammo rack module can be damaged by hits to the lower frontal plate
- Poor reverse speed
- Excellent versatility means no pronounced strengths
Offering reasonable protection at range and an excellent gun, the T110E5 is one of the most "versatile" tanks in the game. As with its predecessor, the T110E5 is best used as a second-line support tank, as its weak spots become very easy to hit at close range. However, in the hands of a skilled player that understands angling and distraction techniques, it is more than capable of holding its ground in a brawl.
On its own, the T110E5 can perform as a dedicated support tank, a sniper, a brawler, even a flanker when necessary using its superior mobility. This specialization comes at a price as other, more specialized tanks will out-perform the T110E5 if conducting their specialized role. This means that- as much as it supports other tanks really well- it is also reliant on team support to make the most out of its flexibility.
As of the present, the T110E5 is overshadowed by its British counterpart, but comparing them is misunderstanding the fact that they perform different roles altogether. The Super Conqueror is a completely different vehicle compared to the T110E5. While the Super Conqueror is an agile, well-armored heavy tank that can soak up damage and return it quickly, the T110E5 is essentially a "pocket heavy tank" that was always meant to have the firepower and armor of a heavy tank but at the fraction of the size and with better mobility. This means that while the Super Conqueror can afford to play the part of more traditional heavy tanks it can also sideline as a support tank depending on the situation. The T110E5 turns this playstyle on its head so that it performs exceptionally well as a support tank but struggles to fill out the role of a dedicated heavy tank (owing to how thin its sides are). It has the frontal armor to soak up damage, but it is more vulnerable to large-caliber HE rounds than most of its peers. In practical terms, this means that players can reasonably expect Super Conquerors to appear in map lanes where Heavy tanks duke it out but T110E5s can just as well appear in other spots where they may be of better use. This is particularly important for controlling crucial areas in the map as the T110E5's combination of armor and mobility make it a nasty surprise for defenders who expect another set of tanks entirely like fast mediums or light tanks. With that said, one should not be quick to dismiss the E5 as another victim of the growing power-creep in Tier X battles. It still remains a potent multi-role tank that can push its own weight and beyond.
- Note: As of Update 1.10, or Equipment 2.0, the T110E5 has been buffed. Previously, it was outclassed by the Super Conqueror and T95/FV4201 (Cheiftain) in almost all categories. Its DPM and reload before the patch were ~2,503 and 9.59, respectively, and both have since been buffed to 2,844 and 8.44, respectively. The cupola has unfortunately not been buffed, so its turret is still unreliable in the premium shell meta. However, the gun handling of the T110E5 has also been buffed. Previously, it was 0.17/0.17/0.08, which was pretty decent, but heavily outclassed by the S. Conq and Cheiftain. It has since been buffed to 0.13/0.13/0.06, giving it better handling than several medium tanks of the same tier.

Design and Development
The original project of T110 was rejected by the military because of its excessive size (it wouldn't fit in the standard tunnel) and a poorly allocated commander tower, placed on the left. The company suggested another variant – the tower was placed at the center of the body, but, to solve the issue with fitting in the transmission, the driver was placed in the combat compartment. The latter was also ill-received by the military and the driver was returned to the original place. When endorsing the project with the Detroit tank arsenal, the drive layout was decided to be remade into rear-wheeled. Now it was necessary to remove the commander tower altogether to keep the size in check. In addition, according to the order, instead of the AV-1790 engine, they had to use an air-cooled AOI-1490 with the power of 700 HP and the same XTG-500 transmission. The 120-mm T123E1 gun was placed in a solid setting. Now there appeared problems with the power unit: it was out of reach. It was decided to make the engine “roll out” on the rails through a large manhole in the body’s rear. But a manhole like that drastically lowered the body’s rigidity.
After all these troubles, Chrysler came up with the fourth variant of the tank. Now the AOI1490 engine and XTG-510 transmission were placed in the rear compartment of the tank, in a classic manner. The length of the body increased, but it would solve most of the problems with the power unit. The 120-mm gun was placed solidly in the mask, providing horizontal firing angles of 15 degrees to the sides and inclination angles of +20 degrees and -10 degrees. Constructing the cannon’s mask proved problematic. It has to be 230mm thick and weigh just under two tons. The body’s forehead sheet and the cabin defense was equal to a 127-mm sheet angled at 60 degrees. The support weapons included a 7,62mm machinegun, that was paired with the cannon and a 12,7-mm machinegun located in the commander tower. The telescopic sight T156 was used for shooting. M16A1 periscopic sight was used as a back-up. The tank commander was able to use the T53 “OPTAR” rangefinder, installed on the top of the cabin. “OPTAR” was an optical rangefinder, used to evaluate the range covered by light impulses. Needless to say that this device, preceding the laser technology, wasn't very effective and suffered from light dazzles.
The driver was placed on the left side – near the gun. With such driver and gunner placement, the forehead armor had to be made with a lesser angle, so it was required to make it much thicker. This was the main downside of utilizing an immovable cabin instead of a tower.The next logical step – replacing the cabin with a tower, that was possible while staying in the planned 50-ton limits of the machine. As a result, a classically composed tank was made, which were utilized many of the already existing units, were able to be built fairly quickly and cheaply. This tank became the fifth Chrysler project. The 120-mm gun was solidly fastened to the tower mask, having the standard 2,15-m epaulet like in the M103 heavy tank. The main difference from the standard composition became the placement of the gunner and the commander to the left of the gun. The team was reduced to four people – one of the loaders was excluded, replaced by a mechanical loader. The “OPTAR” T53 rangefinder was installed on the left side of the tower and could be used by both the gunner and the commander of the tank. Compared to the tower-less variant, the new T110 was providing better firing ability and quicker target hitting. The project had made it to the final stage – it was constructed and shown to the specialists of the Detroit arsenal in the form of a full-sized tank model. However, by that time, the modification project of the T43-T43E2 heavy tank, which eventually became the M103, was successfully accepted. That, together with the decision to concentrate the attention on lighter tanks, lead to the end of all work on the T110 project.
Historical Accuracy Errata
* The name T110E5 is fictional; the vehicle was the 6th design of the T110 series and so should be named T110 v6 (the E designation is fictional)
- The T110E5 did not have an "eggshell" style frontal plate, it had a flat one (look at the mockup pictures above).
- The T110E5 was meant to mount the 120mm T123 gun. The 120mm M58 gun was developed from the 123mm T123 gun after the T110 project was canceled.
- The AOI-1490 engine historically had 700 horsepower, but in-game it is 875 horsepower.
