The M1A1 AIM is a tier 8 Premium Main Battle Tank. Built and designed in the United States, this Abrams variant is a sturdy choice for those looking for an all-rounder vehicle.

The M1A1 AIM has only been available in the web shop during special events or holidays, particularly United States holidays such as Veteran's Day or the 4th of July which is the date of American Independence. The vehicle also comes with a special camo scheme that prominently displays the year of 1776, a skull decal with appropriate era hat, and the stripes of the US flag.

Player Recommendations[]

The M1A1 AIM handles and plays like any other Abrams would: a jack of all trades, master of none. Playstyle is situationally dependent.  It can lead a charge if top tier, but care must be taken, since the armor has the thickness of a regular tier 7 M1A1. The ammo of the AIM is also subpar for its tier, so sniping accuracy is important, as well as focusing on a more flanking or supporting role. The AIM’s base view range is higher than its progression tier 7 and tier 8 counterparts, so stacking view range to assist in spotting is also quite doable. Overall, the AIM’s largest weaknesses are its armor or ammo values, but it is still a solid Abrams type MBT.

The Abrams Main Battle Tank is the current service MBT of the U.S. Army and several other countries. It was developed in the 1970s to replace the aging Patton series in American service. Unlike the failed MBT-70 project, the downfall of which was the widespread use of experimental technologies along with an extremely high price tag, the Abrams was designed to use modern but affordable and reliable components. What made it different from the Patton series was the use of Chobham composite armor and a gas turbine for propulsion, earning it the nickname "Whispering Death".

The M1A1 AIM (Abrams Integrated Management) is an improved version of the main and, at the same time, the most iconic version of the Abrams. Between 1997 and 2012, some 4000 U.S. service tanks were basically overhauled to a brand-new condition and upgraded with a new Forward-Looking Infra-Red (FLIR) sensor suite, an external infantry phone, a thermal imager for the 12.7mm heavy machinegun and some new communication equipment. Variants of this vehicle with and without Depleted Uranium armor inlays exist. Australia purchase 59 of these vehicles in 2006 and Morocco purchased a similar variant called M1A1 SA in 2015.
