The M1 Abrams is America’s first totally-new battle tank since the Second World War. Its top secret Chobham armour makes it one of the best protected tanks in the world, and one of the heaviest tanks. Despite this, its multi-fuel gas turbine engine makes it the fastest as well.
The M1 Abrams’ NATO-standard 105mm gun fires the latest long-rod, fin-stabilised ammunition, giving it incredible penetrating power. This time-tested gun combines remarkably compact rounds for a high rate of fire, with a deadly effect against almost any type of target. Its advanced stabiliser, laser rangefinder, and thermal imager allow it to hit targets at any range while moving rapidly across any terrain, whether by day or by night.
Crew survivability is another focus of this superb design. The tank’s ready-use ammunition is all stored in an armoured compartment at the back of the tank. If the ammunition is hit, blow-out panels on the top of the turret ensure the crews survival. If the tank doesn’t blow up immediately when it’s hit, the crew know they are safe to continue fighting. Overall, the M1 Abrams is perhaps the best tank in existence, with a good balance between the triad of mobility, protection, and firepower.
The United States has the most powerful armed forces in the world. Three army corps stand ready to defend Western Europe from the red horde poised across the Iron Curtain. Armoured troops’ powerful M60 Patton tanks or state of the art M1 or IPM1 Abrams tanks, mechanized infantry mounted in reliable M113 personnel carriers, and light infantry of the 82nd Airborne all stand ready to stop the red tide.
