The United States has revealed three possible models for the next generation of Abrams tanks for the US Army. This new gen. tank is not supposed to be ready before 2023. The new version of the tank weighs about 70 tons.
The US military tried several times to replace the Abrams at some point in the 2000s, when billions were spent without building a single tank.
The Dead District Blog has given technical details on the variants, including Active Defence system (Abrams are equipped with Rafael’s “Trophy” system), the addition of a drone that will enable the crew to acquire targets, and improve crew comfort.
