Your shell will be able to penetrate into the tank and likely one shot kill them. The Hull armor gives the M1A1 a fighting chance against HEAT rounds,even though most times it will hit the UGP and bounce right into the player's turret ring, knocking out the cannon breech, the gunner or the turret traverse. This page was last edited on 29 December 2020, at 08:08. Weak turret ring armor and upper hull plate ricochets will often/sometimes lead to fatal shot traps and ammo racks. Showing promising performance, work on the vehicle continued. The Tank, Combat, Full Tracked, 105-mm Gun M1, or just M1 Abrams, is a rank VI American medium tank with a battle rating of 10.0 (AB/RB/SB). Most tanks at its Battle rating, due to the relatively poor armour, Type 90 and AMX-40, as their incredibly powerful shots can penetrate you anywhere, at any angle, at almost any distance, The T-80B, because of its strong armament and very strong armour; it can be penetrated through its lower front plate, the drivers viewport below the gun, and just to the side or below the gun; if a T80B shows any of its side, you can penetrate it there, Good chemical protection from composite armour, Turret also has composite armour on the side, Turns very fast, even in neutral steering, Internal armour plating helps with increasing the crew survivability, Very accurate main gun with very good gun stabilizers and good rate of fire, Blowout panels protect the crew from ammo-racks detonation, Although composite armour is absent on the upper glacis plate, the extreme sloping makes shells bounce every time, The three shells under the gun do NOT have blowout panels, if detonated you will die, No composite armour on the upper glacis plate and in the rear of the turret, so remaining on level terrain is priority, Low APFSDS penetration compared to Challenger 1 and T-64B, Inadequate stock ammo loadout; Both the M735 and M456 shells are no longer effective at top rank, Weakest composite armour compared to Challenger and T-64B, Losing some crew members will prevent you from firing some of your smoke grenades, The armour's chemical resistance against HEAT and such is not relevant against contemporary enemies usually equipped with APFSDS, M774 is a tier IV modification and it is still a pretty weak round for 10.0, The turret ring is a massive weak spot since any shell at 10.0 can penetrate it. The Tank, Combat, Full Tracked, 120-mm Gun M1A1 (shortened to M1A1 Abrams) is a rank VII American medium tank with a battle rating of 10.3 (AB/RB/SB). The Abrams main strength its its extreme mobility, even by MBT standards, and the very good ballistics of the dart rounds. It was introduced in Update 1.77 "Advancing Storm". Once testing was concluded and the results evaluated, the turbine-powered Chrysler design was proclaimed the winner of the competition and thus the Chrysler design would soon enter production as the M1 Abrams. M1 Abrams, Challenger 1, and.... A ♥♥♥♥♥♥ PROTOTYPE OF A LEOPARD 2?!?!?! At 68 km/h of top speed and 40 km/h in reverse, the tank is comparable to its counterparts. The turret protection on the M1A1 is not capable of stopping any of the best APFSDS rounds at it's tier. what kind of BS is this? The Tank, Combat, Full Tracked, 120-mm Gun M1A1 (shortened to M1A1 Abrams) is a rank VII American medium tank It is suggested to use the M735, since at distance many rounds will not hit the target and the M774 costs 600 SL to fire and has only got a better angle penetration. They succeeded in this endeavour in 1981, after a prototype Abrams, designated M1E1, was successfully fitted with a 120mm Rheinmetall smoothbore cannon. However, the kinetic energy protection of the tank is quite lacklustre compared to its top tier compatriots, especially against the best rounds fielded by other nations' main battle tanks; all of which can easily penetrate the Abrams frontally in practically any location. The game is based … if you're gonna be a game developer, at least don't be biased ffs. Rounds like 3BM42 Mango are able to penetrate at ranges up to 3500 meters! It accelerates quickly, and will hold a speed of 32 miles an hour over rough terrain. The Tank, Combat, Full Tracked, 105-mm Gun IPM1, or just IPM1, is a rank VI American medium tank with a battle rating of 10.0 (AB/RB/SB). Although it has a low penetration, the M735 and the M774 are still APFSDS, and as such, you can get a penetrating hit on an enemy's side even with a very low impact angle. All rights reserved. As powerful as the motor may be, the M1 Abrams has a slow to respond, and relatively slow traverse rate for its neutral steering. This page was last edited on 29 December 2020, at 08:12. Áttekintés Az M1 Abrams MBT az Amerikai Egyesült Államok hadseregének és Tengerészgyalogságának fő harckocsi típusa. The game is based around combined arms battles on air, land, and sea with vehicles from the Spanish Civil War … The M1 Abrams also suffers from a raised engine deck. M1 Abrams, Challenger 1, and.... A ♥♥♥♥♥♥ PROTOTYPE OF A LEOPARD 2?!?!?! The powerful round and gun give it a strong position in the U.S. top tier lineup. Designed with combat against the Warsaw Pact in mind, the Abrams instead was sent into battle … Generally stock M1A1 tank commanders should avoid areas with lots of foliage, as here the lack of thermals will be especially detrimental. Once the unsuccessful joint German-American MBT-70 project had been shut down in 1971, the Congress redistributed funds to the further development of the XM815 project, later known as the XM1 Abrams. The M1A1 Abrams features the same 1,500 horsepower AGT-1500 gas turbine equipped on the other Abrams tank, though the tank has gotten several tons heavier.
