Main Battle Tank Battle info
Pretty easy to work out the most likely to win this battle, Challenger 2E & M1A2 Abrams. Me, personally i'd go for the Challenger 2E simply because i believe that it would come out victor, not any other way. The M1A2 is a formidable adversary with heavy firepower but the Challenger 2E with it's improved performance could just slip under the rope & come out best of both. M1A2 is a tank on level with the Challenger but to me, just comes short of the victory.
Also i'd like it more if you could provide information & explain why you think the tank you choose is better than the rest. If you could, don't be biased on the tank you choose, being American you might choose M1A2 disregarding the information behind the machine, you might choose Russian if you're Russian. It would be better if you could purely choose the tank which is best rather than choosing the tank your country produced.

During the war the tanks were ambushed. They were taken by suprise and srrounded. It was a good thing we had more advanced technology. They would have killed us all. The right type of tank has to be equipped with what it needs to do the job right.

Definatly one of the latest western designs. So that would short it down to M1A2(SEP) Abrams, Challenger 2, Leopard 2A6, Leclerc and Merkava 4.
When it comes to most effective ammo, the US wins hands down with its M829A3 round, the only round that comes close is the German DM53 fired from the new L55 gun on the Leo 2A6. Protection wise they are pretty equal, the Challenger 2 got a bit stronger than the Leopard 2A6 and M1A2(SEP). Pure gun power the L55 on the Leo 2A6 is the most powerful.
These are the numbers i have found for tank rounds from various nations:
(All are estimates, and should be viewed as sutch)
US M829A3 = Estimated 960mm RHAe@2000m
German DM53 fired from L55 gun = Estimated 810mm RHAe@2000m
UK Charm 3 = Estimated 700mm RHAe@2000m
French OFL120E2 = Estimated 640mm RHAe@2000m
Have not found any numbers for Israeli 120mm rounds.
