Tanker's Tuesday: M1A2 Tank


Approved for production in 1990, the M1A2 represents the U.S. Army’s technological improvement of the basic M1A1 design and the most modern battle tank in the world. Outwardly similar in appearance to the M1A1, the most notable exterior changes on the M1A2 are the redesigned Commander's Weapon Station (CWS) and the addition of a Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer) on the left side of the turret forward of the loader's hatch. Internally, however, the M1A2 has been radically redesigned to take advantage of newer technology.

Nice tank, but I rather fight in a KMW Leopard 2A7 or an Israeli Merkava IV

The KMW Leopard 2A7 is a top notch tank, but not in sufficient numbers.
The Merkava IV not that great IMO has some fantastic points (like the
ability to carry infantry) but it's speed and armor are not up to the
SEP.
