Fallout Re: Abrams

Copied from the MBT Thread just tired I guess. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Those are definitely M1A2 SEP3 tanks in that picture. So this next Ref. ties it all into the picture. Particular attention should be made to paras 6, 8 & 10...
https://www.army.mil/article/222100/...ased_lethality

Excerpts from the above Ref. from...
Para 6: "2-8 CAV just came off the mission of Atlantic Resolve in Europe. During their 9-month deployment, they conducted large amounts of tactical and live fire training."

Para 8: "The Soldiers from 2-8 Cav. have been extremely motivated and their candid input has been critical to USAOTC's effort to provide meaningful data to Army Evaluation Center who will evaluate the effectiveness, suitability and survivability of the M1A2 SEPv3."

Para 10: "It's cool for these crews to have been able to test these new systems since they already have SEPv2 experience and now they'll acquire a few new certifications before the actual tank is fielded."

Still in OPEVAL and PLEASE note the date of the above Ref.

And again from my submission post to change the START date (It was in the game from 2016/or 2017.) for the SEP 3 this was my "hammer" Ref. to make the change. Article is from this past Dec.
https://www.army.mil/article/214733/...proving_ground

Long night hitting the rack.

Regards,
Pat

And this needs clarification

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.

As far as I know (and I stress this is a "best guess"/info I have) the only time they put the reactive armor on is if they'll be in an urban situation. This of course means time/planning so you're not likely to see it unless they KNOW they'll be dealing with a sizable town/city.
