If you want to determine whether a tank can make it up a particular gradient, you will want that gradient to stay the same angle for repeatability, especially if you're comparing competing prototypes. Even though I'm sure you could rebuild a dirt slope every time you ran a tank up it, it's not exactly practical.

Not to mention having to not only repair the slope every time it rains, but ensuring the soil has the same moisture content day to day and test to test.

No one knows. There are a lot of bombastic claims, like zero-series (one company?) until the spring of 2021, but it is a part of the local political dog and pony show, so it might actually get upgraded or it might go nowhere.

Honestly I'd be more concerned about mud regularly obscuring the headlights than whatever they do to the armour.

Headlights are mostly used for administrative moves, you don't do tactical stuff with headlights on.  Since most admin moves are made on paved or surfaced roads mud isn't much of an issue. I'd be more worried about how to effectively cover those very bright and shiny lights.

It took a long to introduce decent HEAT for 90mm also. I remember that Old Tanker noted that they had only 2 x HEAT rounds issued per tank when Cuban crisis was going on.

But overall tank was pretty decent but for some reason it is semi-forgotten.

Semi-forgotten perhaps because the M60 came out just as the M48A2C with the diesel engine started to appear.  Still, for those that follow such things the M48 performed yeoman service in Vietnam and of course made up a significant portion of the IDF armored force during the 1967 and 1973 wars.
