The Real Speed and Power Abrams

Recommended Posts

Quite some time ago, Panzerleader did an AAR based on his own unit. Thought the people here might enjoy a look at what a fully kitted out Abrams looks like these days, and for once, not in CARC but European pattern. I understand the why, but I sure do miss the streamlined look the tank used to have.

Just an FYI. CARC is a type of paint not a color. It stands for Chemical Agent Resistant Coating, and is actually highly toxic when it's in liquid form. The Desert Tan color is referred to as just that, Desert Tan.

Additional armor on the tower is impressive 100-150 mm approximately .

Well, the fake machine guns make me wonder...

Small arms like the MGs on the roof have certain rules regarding being left unattended.  It's likely just easier to keep plywood weapons mounted and not have to mount/dismount the real MGs each time the garage is closed for the day.  This is rather obviously a "US Army future platforms" exhibit of sorts judging by the M1's stablemate in any event.
