First actual light tank in a few decades. Hopefully they just didn't take an Abrams and shrink it

When I was in the main tank was the M60, what a beast. During basic training and AIT the new tank coming out was the XM1 (X meaning still in the experimental stage) what a huge improvement over the M60.

The Hypersonic missile will take it out before they detect it coming!

One can only hope that the inside is decorated a little lore tasteful than that dull and angular outside styling. Will it come with a make up mirror above the gun sight ?? What different smells are available for the air freshening system ?? Will it have a safe space ( gender neutral ) ?? Will it have book shelves ??

I was an army tracked vehicle mechanic in the late 70's. The M60 was the main battle tank back then. There was talk of the new M1 Abrams but I never got to drive one. Tanks have come a long way in the last forty years.


Eh...wot?

Just read a week ago the Germans have come up with a tank that's supposed to be the bestest of anyones. supposedly a lighter adaption of their Leopard tank with all new tech, weapons and protection features. Seems like tank warfare is back in the forefront with the russian troubles....

Both recent wars involving tanks have been a catastrophe for tanks. When a $2,000 drone can take one out what's the point?

just a few years ago we were told tanks are obsolete

air superiority was everything

the issue is sometimes air support just isn't available

so there will always be some need for armor and big guns call it the Diversification plan

it also seems that we are in the cold war rebooted , the Russia China threats if we are or if we aren't those are the tools the military is gearing up for a war with a major power.

it looks like that tank might have a trailer hitch , which could be a smart idea , pull a trailer with munitions and fuel because resupply is an issue set it up for unmanned drop


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

In todays world probably not a good return on investment. Unless as a politician, you are hooked up with the companies getting the contracts for these I would guess. Donít get me wrong, I think tanks are BA, just in todays warfare they are pretty susceptible to drones and guided munitions. Now, 40 + years ago Iím all in!


Long live the MAGA King

It should help keep the price of scrap metal on the up and up. Some of these tanks are made in Pennsylvania. I wonder what the engine is?

With the current administration in charge, wouldn't surprise me if they are electric, and the hitch is for a generator.

So i guess the generator will need a hitch to pull its fuel wagon, just for cloudy days of course. Designing those solar panels with camouflage was a great feat for Joe and his right hand gal Greta.

That's what I keep wondering.. How much of this fits an actual need vs. how much of it is just something expensive to sell to guvmint?

Aside from this tank, all the new weapons from Sig come to mind.

As for any tank, seeing what those switchblade drones are doing to the Ruskies.......anybody with a little imagination and access to aerial surveillance technology ought to be able to come up with a system to wipe them out en masse. Sitting ducks.
