Well, actually, mobility may or may not be important. The question is, 1v1 who wins??

With a faster Tank, you have the better say in where the fight will take place and under what circumstnaces.
Of course or the tanks can just sit there and wait it out lol.

The Abrams track record is just too good for me to chose anything else.

The Merkava also has an excellent track record. They made jokes out of T-72s just like the Abrams did and have been in counter insurgency operations pretty much every day since.

In a 1v1 fight, it's who ever see's each other first. I don't know much about the optics on the Merkava, but the TC has a great view when buttoned up, thanks to cameras placed around the tank. The M1A2's x50 FLIR is the best in the world though.
