I think the M-1A2's superior mobility really gets me on this one. The gun of the M-1A2 is good enough anyway and its armor has been proven to be superb surviving direct hits and stuff.

Cam I ask how you've arrived at these match-ups in the first place? Did you draw lots, was it random or did you design it this way?

I think it's silly putting 2 'heavyweight' tanks up against each other at this stage. Would have been better had they met in the semi-final for instance.

Anyway I vote for the M1A2 as it does have better mobility. There isn't really much else to choose between them.

There very similar almost the same in terms of performance, apart from C2 having better armor and the M1A2 having better mobility.

Well, Im sorry that you are upset, but the match ups are prettey much by ABC order(of origin country) in the first round and so the tank from USA and UK got to meet each other now(as the both won their 1st round matches)
