That's right, buddy, but half-starved Iraqis turned them into rubbles only with ol'fashioned RPG-7!!

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.

Sure no tank is indestructible but an RPG7 isn't considered high explosive either. As for reducing casulaties by using tanks well that apparantly hasn't worked out either... So stop making excuses Abrams suck!

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.
Just becouse a 9mm pistol can not shoot down an aircraft from 5 km it does not mean that the hand gun is bad, it means it was not used for what it was build..
or something to that effect.I think you get the drift..

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

HARPY




HARPY is a lethal UAV designed to detect, attack and destroy radar emitters.
Harpy is a "Fire-and-Forget" all-weather, day/night autonomous weapon system, launched from a ground vehicle behind the battle zone or from ship based launchers.

HARPY effectively suppresses hostile SAM and radar sites for long duration, by detecting, attacking and destroying radar targets with a very high hit accuracy.

HARPY provides the most effective solution to the hostile radar problem, at the lowest price. HARPY is in production, is already operational with several nations Air Forces, and is currently available.

Weighs 135 kg, 2.1 meter long, 2.7 meter span and with range of 500 km. It is sealed in its sealed launcher/container, to endure harsh battlefield conditions. It can be fueled or defueled in the launcher, therefore retaining its readiness at all time. The system uses periodical built-in test to maintain full readiness.




The Harpy mission is planned and programmed in the battery ground control center, as an independent mission, or planned in accordance with other manned or unmanned systems. The drone flies autonomously enroute to its patrol area its radar seeker head constantly search for hostile radars. Once suspicious radar is acquired, Harpy compares the signal to the library of hostile emitters, and prioritizes the threat. If the target is verified, the drone enters an attack mode, as it transitions into a near vertical dive, homing on the signal. The drone is set to detonate its warhead just above the target, to generate the highest damage to the antennae, and surrounding facilities. If the radar is turned off before Harpy strikes, the drone can abort the attack and continue loitering. If no radar was spotted during the mission, the drone is programmed to self destruct over a designated area. Follow-on systems which are already proposed to foreign clients, are calling for a combination of seeker and killer drones that will enable visual identification and attack of targets even after they turn off their emitters.



Harpy Delivered to Turkey

In a deal dating back to 1999, the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) have taken delivery of a number on Harpy lethal unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from Israel Aircraft Industries Ltd. (IAI). The exact number is unknown, but reports suggest that more than 100 lethal UAVs were delivered.
IAI's MBT Division develop and produce the Harpy system, which is an attack UAV used in the suppression of enemy aerial defences (SEAD) role. It is a ‘Fire-and-Forget' all-weather, day/night autonomous weapon system, launched from a ground vehicle mainly against hostile radar emitters, amongst others.

In June 1999 MBT and Raytheon Missile Systems teamed to market the more advanced Combat UAV Target Locate and Strike System (CUTLASS), based on the proven Harpy's UAV type airframe.

Harpy is currently operational with several Air Forces globally.


Harpy Delivered to India

According to media reports, the Indian army has purchased a number of the armed Harpy drone, produced by Israel Aircraft Industries.

@ AK_Baluch-
"So stop making excuses Abrams suck!"

If you say that Abramses suck, then EVERY tank in the world sucks. Period. I'm assuming you haven't read the book Thunder Run. It's about the armored raids that the 3rd Infantry Division made into Baghdad. Those tanks survived dozens of RPG hits and only two were knocked out, by hits in their engine compartments where the armor is about as thick as aluminum foil. Yes, the Abrams has some weak spots, but it definitely DOES NOT suck. It is one of the most durable tanks on Earth.

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.
They were used very effecivly during the YumKippur War by Egypt and they used armour to spear head many attacks with infantry.


Highly doubt you'll see any abrahms burning

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.

Iran also produces T72S or M, the know-how is bought from russia.
