they have to say that it's the most bla bla and the best bla bla...

They have to.

And do you think that the countries who could buy the Leopard will just see a discovery channel documentary to decide how to equip their armies?

Of course not.

As Sherman said, the Merkava isnt for sure the best tank in the world... Neither is the Abrams, or anything...

These are weapons platforms. They are adapted to well defined needs.

The best tank in the world have to be perfect.

It have to be neither too big or too small, it must have the best armor around, the best ammo capability around, the best engine around, easy to repair, fast and powerful, not consuming much power, not too noisy etc etc...

And you will see that some of these aspects dont work together. You cant have a small tank and a tank that looks huge to scare the enemy...

You cant have a light and well armored tank...

It have to be balanced following the mission and the needs.

Actually with advances in material science, such as carbon fibers and carbon nanotubes, you can have a light and well armored tank.

why would we want our tanks to travel by air?

Because you want to deploy them to Afghanistan, for example?

I'll bet (just luck, because they're both evenly matched) that both of them will be destroyed at the same time

If someone hasn't suggested this lets all just sign a petition and e-mail it to deadliest warrior. They are good at these kind of debates. Plus they probably have the budget to actually try it out. That's probably the only way to ever half way know. The only way to truly know is well......hopefully that doesn't happen.

Perfectly possible... Maybe that Israel will invade Germany for a good laugh... And then we will see.

Lets do it the other way around? Jews catching Germans 0.o? Seriously, due to disarmament and stuff one day i would guess that it would be possible for Israel to conquer Germany... well if it goes on like it does right now.

Eh, if you ask some Evangelists, they will tell you that there is a prophecy they are trying to fullfil where Israel receives the Messiah so he can rule the world...

And if you say that these religious prophecies have no geopolitic-geostrategic meaning... Then you are wrong. Israel is still an important country for a lot of powerful people/nation in the world for its religious/symbolic value.

And If Israel have to rule the world, then invading other countries might be a possible outcome...

Hang tight Germany... The revolution is coming. You will be free from your godless government soon enough, they will free you all, even if it have to kill you...

Ah, look at the sig of usinfantryMOS11c1... Nice flag buddy ^^

I'm joking, but with the nutjobs ruling the world tomorrow and all these silly prophecies about Israel/messiah... It's not impossible.
