In respect to the model of Abrams tank that fought in the 1st gulf war and Operation Iraqi Freedom they were M-1A1s in 1991 and M-1A2s in 2003. M-1A3 has not been rolled out as of yet. Can anyone ID the hull target on the range? to me it looks like an M-47.

Zulfiqar will be a rude surprise for the Yankees when the time comes. Abrams may have stronger armor, nothing else. They are the same in others respect. It has a powerful 125mm smoothbore gun. It has a digital firing computer which gives the crew fire on the move capability and it's equipped with a gun stabilizer and a laser range finder and a warning pod which alerts the crew whenever the opponent tries to target them. BTW, Abrams has a much higher fuel consumption thus less endurance.

Only Tanks that Iran have that can do anything is the Chieftain-if they upgraded it-other tanks I see are T-72 upgraded era armor-but still it's still doesn't have crew security meaning ammo stowed on it's side-1 penetrating shot it will blow up with turret flying in the air.

The so called M1-clone looks like a crappy tank.

M-48's there toast unless you upgrade like Israel did with there's meschach-6's with 120mm gun-better reactive era armor-otherwise it's a deathtrap.

Best tanks you have are Chieftain/T-72's that's M1's will eat T-72's Chieftain will give it a fight if the crews are
good......

T-72's 1st gulf war were cheap T-72's-hand crank turrets/bas ammo-poorly trained troops/same with T-55's

M1's can be thirsty but you can change engine to be more fuel efficient-but it's armor far superior then Iran has except the Chieftain.

Russians have T-90's upgraded different flavours there latest T-90MS looks good-if they were build T-9*
Black Eagle tank with new supposed 155mm tank gun with ERA around it and fire control-could of gave M1-a run for it's money-but only 2 prototypes were made and the tank co went out of business unless Russians will surprise everyone like WW-II and role them out by surprise.

M-1A1/A2-Lepaerd A5-A7/Challenger-1/2/Lecleric/Black Panther/Type-90/10/T-90MS/T-84-opolate/-and others are best you got in the world.

It's also the Ammo/training/can you get 1st hit and will your ammo do damage or bounce.....

Zulfiqar on what I've seen it's junk-and didn't really see it much on the y-tube vid-just T-72's/covered
Zulfiqar/freshly painted M-48 ready for target practice-itself-with only 105mm gun-unless if it had good ammo-good thing We"USA" got ride of it-T-72-outclassed it.
But hey Isreali's M-4-SuperSherman&Centeroins w/90's/105'smm guns outclassed T-55/T-62's in 6 day war but
Isreali's are excellent Tankers
