Handful of tanks are hit with RPG, and they're suddenly looked down upon? No tank is indestructable, and since US pushed the tanks into tight spots to save infantry casualties, their losses are suprisingly light considering.
Well, the way I see it, all military equipment was build for a specific purpose, if you decide use it in a manner that was not design for, you can expect some problems, thus giving the equipment bad name.
T-72Z Safir-74 - An Iranian upgrade to the T-54/T-55 that may have been applied to Iraqi T-54s captured in the Iran-Iraq War. This has a number of improvements including a 105 mm M68 rifled tank gun, computerised fire-control system and a new power pack which consists of a diesel engine, fully automatic transmission and cooling system
true i agree, abrams has some freakin magical armor or something :/ damn synthetic fibres + technology :< although tanks are far from being very important to war. Its not like WWII anymore, hardly any tank battles, tanks are great for occupying cities and keeping them under control. Thus they do their jobs well in Iraq etc, i hope we see more burning soon :>
Well tanks are very important in the battlefield.
True :> yeah i mean if you have a border with another country that your fighting its very important. But Air supremacy remains the msot vital air/anti air - Navy - IFVs and personnel(marines, soldiers)- Tanks for long term occupation (or going all out on cities lol)Oh Yeah and a nice missile arsenal :>
The tank pictured is T72Z, actually the T55 with enhanced powerpack, 125mm gun, EFCS-3 firing control, and modified turret crew positions but still no automatic loader like T72, it is loaded manually. And i have been in that factory but i can not tell where it is located (security reasons). In the same factory BMP-1 APCs are also manufactured, as far as i remember the iranian made BMP-1's are called Boragh.
