The best tank!
So what would you guys say is the best tank used by any army in the world. I am specifically looking for a rating based on the combination of speed, gun, armor etc. so which one do you think is the best overall

Hey guys REPLY!! please its an easy question maybe yall no nothin about tanks just kidding

Challenger 2.......some of its components are out performed by other tanks (not many at all though) but its all round sophistication and integration of technology is un matched. It combines agility and speed, radar and stealth, both short range and long range weaponary, heavily armoured and extremely efficient.

yeah the challenger is one mean tank, but did you know that the M1A1 abrams used by the U.S. is plated in Uranium 238, making it the best armored tank. I got the impression that that metal was used in nukes...

I quite like the gun barrel on the russian "T" series, which is 125 mm and doubles as a missile launcher

yea that is true. But like I said, some of it's components are out peformed (armour like you said) but its the lethal combination that makes it a formidable fighting machine.

ya the best EVER is the russian t4, as a fact, if the challenger2 or abrams took on this one they'd get ther arses whopped, i know this for a fact cause ther was a worldwide study on it, with tank crews, former tank crews, and historians, and tank experts :cool:

Thats interesting however we may never know for sure unless there is a war betwix those three countries, it is interesting to think about, however the challenger 2 is the most sophisticated tank, followed by the abrams, and they both are reportedly able to survive a nuclear blast

I think my ex-girlfriend would have made a good tank :D She could stop anything!

ya one tank crewmember was caught in a burning abrams and so the marines went back the next day to find any remains, and when they opened the hatch, he was still alive and unhindered. but a t4 would seriously take out any tank :cool:

Thats funny since a t4 is susceptible to get run over by another tank, gotta love that gun tho :cool:
