Tanks will get smaller, though not that much smaller. The most modern armies will end up with 2 tanks, one a proper MBT in size and role and the other an air-portable tank designed to hold ground and achieve limited objectives until the heavy stuff arrives by sea.

As a matter of fact the US Army was considering not having tanks.

The US had one similar to that during the Vietnam War. It consisted of 4 recoiless rifles on a tank chasis. It was lightly armored and had to be reloaded by having the crew go outside. It was barely used and when used, it was not effective.

As far as I know, this tank is a demonstration item and is undergoing modifications.

The Ontos. It actually worked a little in Hue, all 4 rifles going off scared snipers away.
