Russia, the USA, Germany and South Korea all produce the best tanks in the world.
This came in an article published by the editor of the magazine, The National Interest, Caleb Larson, who did not try to compare the specifications of the Russian “Armata” (T-14) tanks. AndThe American M1 Abrams, the German Leopard 2 A7 + and the South Korean K2 Black Panther even drew attention to their notable specifications.
According to Larson, the Armata tank is distinguished by its unparalleled protection devices, including “Malachite” armor that can protect against missiles and anti-tank missiles, and the “Afghani” dynamic protection system equipped with alarm radars that send signals to weapons to respond to them. Moreover, the “Armata” is equipped with an engine that produces 1,350 horsepower. He can increase that strength by 30% for a short period of time.
The military analyst believes that the German Leopard 2 A7 + tank is the best European tank to equip it with modern communication devices, passive protection system, and a 120 mm cannon that throws ammunition that explodes in the air above or in front of the targets. And it may weigh 70 tons, while the “Armata” does not weigh more than 55 tons.
As for the American M1 Abrams tank, it is distinguished by its strong armor made of low-enriched uranium, and the tank weight is 70 tons. However, its specifications are constantly being modified based on the experience of the war operations in which it participated.
The K2 Black Panther tank, according to the military analyst, is one of the most expensive in the world. The Korean tank is characterized by technical complexity and adaptability to terrain conditions such as the highlands and swamps that characterize the Korean Peninsula.
