Default 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

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

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

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

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