Our new M1A2s come equipped with eyesafe laser range finder. Accurately and quickly ranging the target and getting off the first round is like getting to hit your boxing opponent square on the chin while he's still putting on his gloves.

SAA operated T-72B3 shoots ATGM at the 0:04 mark. Unlike western tanks which only shoot unguided rounds, Russian tanks shoot guided rounds for long distance attack and unguided rounds for short distance attack. ATGM range up to several kilometers.
