  2. [...] Armor Damage Idea to improve realism, i think that armored units should have higher total hit points, combined with more of a chance for bits to go wrong, by this i mean that it is more likely to have a track come off or turret disabled, but more of a chance of the unit being able to be fixed by an engineer, so a tank can be taken out of action by disabling it, (making the crew inside no option but to ether sit an be helpless until a field repair or they have to brave the out side) but only totally destroyed by extended light AT attack (RPG), this would mean that the engineer would become a far more important asset to a team then they are now "n one encounter in Iraq, one Challenger 2 was hit by 8 RPGs in close range and one MILAN anti-tank missile and managed to escape to be repaired."

  3. The challenger is one sexy tank
    I honestly think that the Leapord II, Challenger II, and Abrahms A2 are in a class of their own, power, beauty, effectiveness, what else could you ask for?

  4. Tanks of World War II
    The armoured vehicle listings are primarily organized by country of origin. Over 200 tanks listed have detailed and standardized specifications of armor protection, fire-power, mobility and general information.while heavy armer and all-terrain mobility provide protection for the tank and its crew, allowing it to perform all primary tasks of the armoured troops on the battlefield. Tanks were first made by the French,

  11. Challenger 2 probably the best tank in the world today with the Abrahams a close second. Fact is both tanks saw action in the gulf war and both tanks obliterated the T72 and T80 tanks. I have to laugh at the comment that the british cant build tanks since we invented the tank!! The crusader was a really good tank that was a match for the german panzers although it had reliability issues. The centurion was another great tank which totally destroyed russian tanks when used by the Israelies.

  12. Why is every website so behind the times? The project to refit Challenger 2 with the smoothbore gun was cancelled by the new Coalition government in the UK over a year ago. Instead, new three part Tungston ammunition is being developed to mach the performance of the German and US smoothbore rounds.
