Tanks: T-90 vs M1 Abrams.

Some figures given sound a bit like russian bullshit, interesting nevertheless.

  • well there's a surprise, the russian show found that the fancy T-72 is better the the Abrams. didn't see that one coming.

  • You could have the greatest tank ever, but unless you have air superiority, it's not going to make a fuck.

  • I know this is going to draw some flak but, here goes.

    The T-90 is a solid weapon system and it is 'dummied down' which equates to ease of operation. The shortcoming of this 'ease of operation' is that the M1-A1 is technologicaly superior (which, on the flip side, translates into a longer training period for crewmembers to be combat operational).

  • personally i would take the T-90 because cheaper and i'm also guessing easier to work with, plus tactics not tech decides the winner of a battle.

  • by the description it sounds pretty good but I'm a bit dubious about the 'future satellite navigation'

    I think this is a journalistic puff piece. Independent evaluation is necessary.

    Also, comparing tank to tank is not really valid. You need to compare tank and mission against tank and mission.

  • Comment of user 'loslaynes' has been deleted by author (after account deletion)!
  • LOL, Russians seem pretty defensive these days about their capability vs us, bottom line is, get over it, your 15 years behind us, your aviation, navy and tanks can't compete, not to mention the training of your tank crews doesn't come close to a well trained USA crews.

  • Interesting they consider DU too toxic for their crews.
    Does this mean they must care more for their soldiers?

  • A bit impressive...and the T-90 has never been underestimated by tankers...but it still has much against it in terms of system reliability and simple numbers. The T-90 proved to be highly un-cost effective for the Russians and they pretty much ended up manufacturing variants for other nations. I am curious to see what if any new tanks the Russians and the US will be producing to replace the T-*90 and the Abrams. I actually heard that the Russians were considering a fixed gun tank destroyer type More..
