History[]

Class: Main Battle Tank
Developed: 2018-2020
Service: 2020+
Vehicles Built: cca 20 (7 confirmed)
Operators: USA

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 M1A2C, formerly known as M1A2 SEP v3 (it was renamed to underline the importance of its upgrades), is the current cutting edge version of the Abrams, intended for American military service. This model was first introduced to the public for the first time in 2015 at the AUSA Expo in Washington D.C. and features a large number of improvements over its predecessor that focus on reaction time, all-weather fighting capability and engagement distance. It has a brand new set of next-gen armor, an advanced sensor suite and the ability to fire the advanced AMP multi-purpose round thanks to an upgraded FCS. The first prototypes were ready by 2017, were thoroughly tested by the military and the first production vehicles are, as of 2020, rolling off the assembly lines in Lima, Ohio.

This MBT's front is protected by composite armor. Composite armor consists of combined layers of steel and other material and offers excellent protection against HEAT shells and ATGMs. Its steel sides and rear are considerably more vulnerable. The second generation ERA kit offers excellent protection against standard HEAT rounds or warheads, and marginal protection against kinetic rounds.
