Default Re: Abrams

Looks like he is referring to the TUSK I AND II kits. But there are also weight increases with the extra armor added to the the front of the turret(not sure what kind of armor, or how much, or weight), Trophy APS, CROWS II, the 12 large batteries that replaced the turret APU. Etc. From what I have read most of its mobility has been retained with the suspension upgrades. Some areas have been lightened from new materials used in the manufacturing processes.
