in french case, but given a good crew they can be awesome weps...
however the french arnt the only country to build tanks which were flops...

us: sheridan, stryker (not a tank), M1a1 (before general tal came in)

britain: churchil, cruiser tank

russia: t-72 (early versions)

israel: took alot of deaths before ERA and added armor became the standard, i lost a cousin who died in a centurion...

I like your list. THe challenger 2 is one incredible machine as well as the Leclerc, Abrams2, Leopard, and Type 99. Though i know all of the specs about the first 4 does anyone have the specs for the Type 99. Nobody seems to have credible evidence of this new tank and its abilities. How good is this thing?
It's basically a T-72 with a dazzler laser on top. Plus it can fire a mean DU APFSDS with 800+mm of penetration.

And rocco did you just call the M1A1 a flop?

Hmmm you'd honestly put in a Leopard 2A6 (which I assume is what you mean when you say Leopard) in the same category as an M60A3?

It's one of the best tanks in the world man. And while you're at it, the Leclerc is also band 1.

Rocco mate, you can't be serious about the Stryker and M1A1.
