Funny that, I post reports then you declare them fiction. Now you care about opinions lol. Of course I'm going to defend my guys.

This is getting rather boring and as suggested, its time to get back to tanks.

There is a very good comparison between the Challenger2 and Abrams

Topic: Tank time.


Maybe if i post this we can get back to tanks?

No# 2: M1A2 SEP due to it's limited range 426 km's using Avgas and the fact that it has a Rheinmetall (German 120mm) gun.

No# 1: Leopard 2 A6 PSO with it's range of 550 km's using diesel.

When your loggie tail wags the dog you need to think about what you need on the battlefield.

P.S. PSO: Peace support operations.

Oh, you now reporter or analyst now? You just admitted you were not an expert already, so drop the subject and quit answering me.

The U.S. has a powerful diesel engine made for it but contracts prevent us from fielding them

Chinese MBTs are probably overhyped T-72s.

I've seen them, I accidently met alot of friends that are in the PRC Army during my yearly visit, since the kungfu school I attend is right outside some army barracks. They have way mor than one type of tanks. They range from T-52s through T-90 They no longer buy weapons from Russia, they rather build their own versions. The later versions T-72 and up are refitted in China. They even try to mimic M1 Abrums style turrets on the new type 90's in CN

I had dropped the subject, yet you continue to to be insulting, obnoxious, offensive and seriously lacking in civility. The site I posted wasn't for you, it was for others who might be interested in a more balanced view with a view of entering into adult discussions.


Your childish blatherings are irritating and immature to say the least. Now kindly go and annoy someone else.


As far as I am concerned this silliness is done and dusted.

You still haven't learn to stop calling names(it shows you own low maturity). You don't know balance because you have done or been anywhere other than you confort zone. I already asked you to stop talking to me and you still have something worthless to say.

I would have thought that using diesel with a higher flash point would be far safer then using Avgas with its much lower flash point. Then there is of course the matter of logistics.

The US Army uses JP8 its a cross between diesel and jet fuel. It has high octane level and burns like gasoline but last longer like diesel.
