    Documents for the Documents God

    I can't find the old article which demystified the so-called M1 Abrams flaws anymore. I don't remember who had posted it on the forum, maybe @Walter_Sobchak

    The Swedish AFV Thread: Not Just Strv 103s

  7. I have just some questions regarding the M1A2 SEP : Regarding the SEP v2, what do they exactly mean by upgraded transmission ? Why the SEP v1's UAAPU was replaced by 6 Hawker batteries on the SEP v2 ?

  9. Why not upgrade its AVDS-1790-8CR engine (1050 hp) to the AVDS-1790-9A standard (1200 hp) ? Or even better, the AVDS-1790-10 (1500 hp), if it's possible.
  10. What are the other new features of the M88A3 ?

  12. The French considered such system at some time.
