Some random comments on reddit about Death of an Abrams
- This picture has been a mystery to me. As there are very few pictures of destroyed Abrams. All google image search results I get are in foreign Languages. I saw this picture posted on another enthusiast forum and the explanation given then was that this was a tank lost to friendly fire during desert storm but I have no other source.
- The environment and quality of the photograph would appear to lend credit to the Desert Storm claim.
- I've been told by commanding officers that an enemy round has never pierced the armor of an Abrams. This is likely from friendly fire or something else.
- 7 destroyed by friendly fire 'MURICA
- Aww c'mon man, that isn't fair. There were plenty of non-American friendly fire of incidents in the Gulf War.
- One nation has an international reputation for it, however. Well earned and long established, far outmatching any other. Can we guess which it is?
- Looks like base model.
- Considering it's mounting a 120mm M256, and the fact the base model M1 never saw action, it ain't so. Edit: ^ Confirmed to work at GDLS. Base model is correct to refer M1A1s.
- Base = export
- M1A1M is the export model. It sure isn't a base, because the original M1 is the base model. Edit: ^ Confirmed to work at GDLS. Base model is correct to refer M1A1s.
- M1A1M? Nope. Read more comments
