The M1 Abrams is a tier 6 Main Battle Tank originating from the United States, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked from the M60A3, and leads to the M1A1 Abrams.


  • Heavy armor : this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles
  • Gas Turbine : provide a smoother acceleration, compared to an ordinary diesel

Player Recommendations[]

Featuring a massive improvement in protection over the M60 series, the M1 Abrams is a fast moving, hard hitting, well protected fighter. With one of the fastest accelerations of an MBT in the game, and thick, well-sloped frontal armor, the M1 Abrams is a jack-of-all-trades, capable of flanking, brawling, and defending a position equally well. The only major downside to the M1 is its weak 105mm cannon relative to other tier 6 MBTs, but its good armor and excellent mobility make up for this.

Pros and Cons[]


  • Excellent gun depression
  • Well sloped and armored turret and upper plate
  • Excellent mobility


  • Firepower can seem mediocre compared to same tier MBTs

Upgrade Suggestions[]

The M1 suffers from a lack of major upgrades, although it is still a strong tank regardless. After unlocking and purchasing the Improved Tracks, upgrades should be focused on improving the firepower of the vehicle, including better ammunition, the Improved Gunner Sight, and Improved Ready Racks.

Retrofit Suggestions[]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Augmented Optics
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[]

  • Commander: Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats.
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation

Like the Challenger 1, the original M1 was among the first to use high-end composites on the frontal arc of the vehicle, offering extensive protection against both HEAT and kinetic charges at the cost of weight, cost, and complexity. Although only intended for frontal assaults, it offers a solid blend of defense, power, and speed on the modern battlefield.

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".

This is the initial production model, known as the M1. It was produced between 1979 and 1985 in Lima, Ohio and in Detroit, Michigan. This version was still armed with the M68A1 rifled cannon and all the produced vehicles went to the U.S. Army. In 1984, the production was briefly replaced by an interim model called M1IP, before fully switching to the upgraded M1A1. The service M1s were stationed in West Germany and were gradually upgraded in the 1990s to the M1A1 (and later M1A2 standard).
