M1 ABRAMS Main Battle Tank 1982?92. The world's most powerful and successfull combat-proven tank. The M1 Abrams history and performance during Operation Desert Storm is analyzed. Pictorial history.

Click to EnlargeM1 ABRAMS Main Battle Tank 1982?92. The M1 Abrams was the most radical departure in US tank design since World War II. Until the advent of the M1 in the early 1980s, the US Army had relied on the steady evolution of the M26 Pershing tank, through the M46, M47, M48 and M60. The M1 Abrams history and performance during Operation Desert Storm is analysed and compared against those of the Iraqi T-72Ms that it faced. The M1 design came at a time when there were a host of important new tank technologies coming to fruition, in terms of structure and weaponry: these were integrated into it. This book details the design, development and operational use of one of the world's best main battle tanks.
