Hmm... I wonder if my FFL will accept a transfer for an M1 Abrhams.. and if the transfer fee is still 25 bucks for 70 tons of steel

You got $4,000,000?  I think you can get one for $2,500,000 refurbed.  Of course we all know the real cost is in ammo and gas!  Half a mile per gallon.  wink_face.gif

 

Edit - That's jet fuel btw, not pump Diesel.  JP8.

I know the Abrams uses that funky gas turbine engine which did you know btw they don't make anymore, so after the last M1 was made with it, they're just refurbing every single one! I saw it on an episode of Overhauled on Discovery or History or some other nerd channel I watch haha...

 

It said that it actually runs on almost any combustable fuel, jet fuel, unleaded gasoline, and diesel along with some other crap with additives haha. Apparently that + the instantaneous torque from the turbine was the reason to go with that design over a turbo diesel powerplant.

 

Although they ARE loaded to use jet fuel from the factory....

 

Have you seen South Korea's new MBT? It's crazy!

Tanks are cool, but for that price I'd rather get a little 50cal bolt action gun and a nice scope for some long range shooting.

Thx, I had one for 6 years.  wink_face.gif

 

Actually, the diesel V12 as found in the German Leopard has the torque advantage, not the Turbine.  The turbine was picked for outright speed and horsepower as the M1 was designed as an offensive tank unlike a Merkava.  Plus you will never see an M1 running on anything but JP8 in the US armed forces, it's standard and I've never used anything else otherwise or seen/heard the contrary.  So they ARE loaded w/ JP8 all the time.

 

The K2 looks like a derivative of the Leopard2 w/ a unique suspension modeled after the Swedish Stridsvagn.  The gun is the same as ours and the Leo.  The Korean Pack failed it seems so they will be sourcing the German parts for their V12 instead.

It comes w/ a .50cal M2.  tongue_smile.gif

Yeah I like my 50 cal in an M2, thanks. Try carrying the receiver of that baby 2mi to the motor pool.

That sounds like PT.  tongue.gif I saw a SEAL carrying 2 complete receivers and barrels, one in each arm over over at the sandbox.  blink.gif

Finally got some mounting hardware to mount the scope on my rifle.  Not ideal, but it should do for now.

Should be nice weather tomorrow, so I'll go out and zero it.

Went out and zeroed it at 50 yards.  It's a nice target setup.  Shooting out to 100 yards with no wind was too easy.  I need more range!

Carrying one of those barrels on a march was bad enough...

Similar to a 90mm recoiless rifle, but the 90mm does not dig into your shoulder.
