In 1954, a conference on future heavy tanks was held in Detroit. Alongside other advanced projects, the Chrysler Corporation suggested a new tank on the basis of the TS-31 project. The main goal was to make the tank fit the Bern national tunnel. Several variants were considered, but the project was canceled.
The T110E3 is the third Chrysler proposal of the T110 120mm Heavy tank project. This should not be confused with the third Detroit T110 proposal. The Chrysler T110E3 is mostly identical to the T110E4 save for being slightly shorter due to a worse power plant.
