If there are, I haven t read about it yet.


What I mean is that the T-72 is slightly less effective than the Abrams, but then we get into more advanced tanks like T-80 and T-90 and it's a different story.


Wiki has totally lost its credibility with me.


Wiki is maintained by thousands of people just like us or more experienced. It's a social effort, not controlled by one ignorant source. That's why I depend on it.

The bagdad airport T72's are just standard 80's T72's afaik. As for their ammo, the state of their targetting equipment, their hit percentage we dont know.

There is a good chance that new T72 versions can handle the M1A1(with handle i mean taking it on in somewhat even terms)

I however am pretty sure that the M1A2 sep is a superior tank to the T72. In terms of actual combat. It very well might be that in a conventional war the latest t72's will prove to be superior though lower cost and faster production. (the t34 effect if you will)

Watched a program about challenger 2 the other night The Royal Scots
Regt the chaly 2 that lost its tracks and was nearly overrun by the Iraq republican guard, it took a direct hit from a TOW missile and several hits from a RPG had all its visors and radio antena shoot out and still survived to fight on, the crew all safe and well, that's what ya call a tank

It's his job. His job is drive tanks. His chosen profession, from what I ascertain when reading his post, is that of a soldier, assigned to protect you from all enemies foreign and domestic. That is, if you live in the US>


Yes, i believe this is exactly the problem.

How is that a problem....not saying that we are at any immediate threat from a force that could stand toe to toe, but you think if there was...you could be saved by hugs?
