Started this topic to discuss about Tank crews. Got a lot of questions to ask!!! How do you all rate Crew survivability and comfort of Soviet/Eastern Tanks against Western Tanks. Read in a article that M1 has the most comfortable position. Russian T-72s Tanks are said to be have a lot of flaws. Back in Gulf War, No crew member had survived. Every time they were hit the ammo and fuel exploded usually blowing the turret off and killing the entire crew. Fire Fire is the worst enemy for a Tank crew. Do crew wear any special Fire-resistant uniform. Are there any escape hatch for the Driver and Loader to escape? MBT Crew Comfortability Temperature in tank would be very high. Are they any measure taken reduces crewman heat stress and provides increased comfort during operations in hot environments, Like attach a Mini-AC in the compartment. Maybe a Special Cooling Uniform to reduce the Heat!!!
