Realistic Combat Scenario :P
dont know about relastic,but m1a1 or m1a2 vs t90a scenarion,t90 will win...just because if americans will use standart projectiles,t90 will hit them from 4 km range:\ but NO thats not true...i heared from american tankmens how 1 abrams shooted 1305719823479234 t72s in iraq and afgan...;(((
Well the new era on the T90 was made specificaly against american m829a3 sabot rounds and the T90 can fire it's 4 atgms further than the abrams can even target, it's a much smaller, harder to hit. And the abrams haves no active protection when everyone else does. I'd place my bet on the T90.
of course on t90,no other way...long time ago i erased abrams from my tank list,leopard2,merkava,t90 theese are tanks...
and you know how its funny when russian uran projectile hits american uran armor,and then US tankmans dies because of radiation:DDDDD
Why do so many people here not understand that depleted uranium is not radioactive...
actually it is:D only not outside but inside levels,dont know about "kill" concentration,but this Object not gonna give to you good mood,forget about armor,uranium projectiles are really harmful to the crew:\
It is a bit radioactive, but it wont kill you, but when the tank gets hit and du starts pouring out or catches fire, its classified as nuclear waste, hence why rad teams all way from america are called in to salvage abrams wrecks and then dig them with nuclear waste somewhere in the desert...
nuclear waste,like this classification-american tanks=nuclear waste:DDD
Do you have a source for this DU armour catching fire?
Sorry eng isnt my first language,what you mean?
But anyway what i am talkin about Uran-the strongest carcinogen like any heavy metal,crashing into the armor, uranium is sublimated and it is enough just to breathe the air, as in a few years gonna die from lung cancer:))))so cool
There are some combat reports and tanker stories about some atgm hitting the front armor and white smoke coming out of it, the crew had to bail, because another shot would have set it on fire.
I'm just curious about this because the closest possible reference to DU catching fire was this.
But that was about ammuntion. It almost seems more likely that the abrams you're talking about was HIT by a DU round.
I can't find a source now but it was definately hit by some newer russian atgm.
But all of this is irrelevant as Russia and America are best buddies right now lol.
From T90 to nuclear waste to countrys.. quite the argument
Abram M1 tank was made in 1980 in response of Soviet T-72,why were Iraq's T-72 easily destroyed,not talking about mayor A-10 and cobra/apache scored kills?
First: Think what has improved in past 8 years, especialy in military equipment? Yes, a lot of things. And M1 is made in 1980 and T-72 in 1972.
Second: M1 Abrams (1980) and T-80 (1980) is what should have been compared or M1a2 and T-90
Those Iraqi T72's were simple watered down polish export copies, like 20% of what the real T72 was back then. The Iraqi asad babil tank was pretty much a carbon copy of the crappy export version t72, what do you expect, it's like exporting abrams with no electronics, old munitions, weakest possible configuration and putting it up against latest T90m's.
I don't know what kind are Iraq's T-72, but I've heard a lot that they used old munitions. One thing is for sure it's much easier to find and kill a tank when a satellite scan is giving your everything about enemies.
It looks like dawn of war, without the pathfinding issues.
