I have assembled a list of the six best tanks currently in production in several countries, these tanks are as followed. M1A2 Abrams
, Challenger 2
, Leopard 2
and the Type 99
. The set up is simple, I will create a six team playoff system and will set up polls that will last one week to choose the winner. The Abrams and Challenger 2 will get first round byes, because just like the playoff system in the NFL, they have the best record and earned a bye. So it will go as followed.
First Round (December 26th - January 6th) Leopard 2 vs. Leclerc Merkava vs. Type 99
Challenger 2 and Abrams (Bye)
Second Round (January 7th - January 14th) Winner Leopard 2/Leclerc vs. Abrams Winner Merkava/Type 99 vs. Challenger 2
Final Round (January 15th - January 22nd) Winner Leopard 2/Leclerc/Abrams vs. Winner Merkava/Type 99/Challenger 2
Obviously this list will be seen as controversial and some will try and throw in tanks that they think should also be on this list, but I went through a rather long list (18 to be exact) of the most advanced/common (several old Russian T tanks were on that list.) MBT's in the world right now and I personally felt that these six stood out above the rest.
Ok, the voting threads are up, hopefully they will close on January 1st but I may have made a mistake in setting up the polls. (Note, assume if they do not close, that the results as of Jan 2nd at 12am CST are the official results.) And also, I made the votes private so nobody knows whom you voted for.
