    M1A1 Abrams Tank

    M1A1 Abrams Tank
    The Abrams is the US's main battle tank, with its sophisticated electronics and 120mm smoothbore main gun, it is capable of a 95% hit rate at distances of over 4km. Powered by a 1500hp gas turbine, it is protected by state-of-the-art armour which can incorporate depleted uranium.

    That was sweet. I liked the slow-mo of the missile about 1 minute in.

    It weighs almost 70 tons and can do 45-50 miles per hour.

    And when it is cold, they are great to stand behind to warm-up.

    Although you smell like jet fuel afterwards.

    THey are pretty impressive. I drive HETS for the 1158th TC, part of the Wisconsin National Guard. The main purpose of the HET is to haul the M1 abrams

    Those are all actually M1A2's...someone named the video wrong, M1A1's don't have the SEP upgrades or the CITV on the turret.
