    Ok, it's early and i dont feel like reading that much, so from a skim of the page I cant find anything proving that its the best tank in the world. So im gonna chalk this one up to a matter of opinion unless someone wants to post comparative info on the other MBTs in use right now.Not tryin to be combative just sayin ppl normally like to see comparative proof on asertions of things being classified as the best.

    I will take the abrams until the leo2 sees combat, which probably wont happen.

    True, the Leo 2 will be phased out (already pretty much has been) in favour for wheeled MGS (Lav III with 120mm Smoothbore turret).

    It's our mid step for going to Lean, mean, fighting. American forces are doing it rather slowly but they too are picking up with the Stryker's for example.

    I guess you would compare your Lav-25's/Strykers to our Lav III's I think. Both use 25mm Bushmaster cannons.

    And tanks are a bitch to airlift/sealift. But when they get knocked out they can pretty much be used as a mobile Pillbox. Tough SOB's but in this day and age with Urban warfare, streets are deathtraps for 'em.

    thats because the U.S sends their reserve units most of the time and canada send their reg-force units to competions( like the can-am trophy). a regular american unit would school our shitty leopards with their eyes closed.



    (btw im in 3ppcli)

    Well i don't agree! I saw competitions with regular american soldiers and german soldiers in urban warfare.
    And also competitions between germans and french soldiers.
    All the time the germans won.

    The best soldiers in urban warfare are the germans and the british!

    just give me the MLRS, tanks are too personal. I'd rather rain steel from a distance

    uhh, what he is holding in that pic is the Javelin Anti Tank Missle... it goes up high in the air and attacks from above and hits the tank on the top/turrent which is the weakest area, thus making it able to kill every damn tank pretty damn easily

    like 90% of our weapons/equipment is modeled after the Germans since we captured their shit and scientists during WWII. if it wasnt for a german scientist we wouldnt have NASA. the m60/m240 is modeled after german machinegun. the flex mount for the 240 is the same design as one the nazis used in ww2. the v1 rocket = our tomahawks, the v2 rocket = ICMBs. i can go on and on.
