    The Stridsvagn 103 (Strv 103), or S-Tank ("Stridsvagn" being the Swedish word for Tank, literally "fighting carriage"), was a Swedish post-war main battle tank. It was known for its unconventional turret-less design, with a fixed gun traversed by engaging the tracks and elevated by adjusting the hull suspension. The S-Tank was developed in the 1950s and was the first main battle tank to use a turbine engine. The result was a very low-profile design with an emphasis on defense and heightened crew protection level. S-Tanks formed a major portion of the Swedish armored forces from the 1960s to part of the 1990s, but have since been removed from service in favour of the Leopard 2.

    When you examine the anatomy of the M1Abrams, stay away from the rear. The engine exhaust is a safety hazard. Extremely hot.

    It's not that hot and not that dangerous.

    But is good enough to cook. ;)





    Worth to watch, it was made prior and after 9/11, it is in Fort Knox Armor School Center, a USMC cadets training to become tank crew members.

    God's Chariot- The Merkava Tank , Part 1 This is a documentary film about the Merkava tank and how its invincible image was tarnished in the 2006 Lebanese/Israeli war.

    Pure propaganda, manipulated etc. etc. etc. Unfortunetly there was never good documentary about Merkava in TV, only books are good... on the other hand we can even talk about good TV documentary? The only worth thing in these are video materials (especially archival ones), rest is less worth than a pile of sand.

    You couldn't expect anything less since that beast is powered by a jet engine. But the most dangerous part of the M1 (or any tank for that matter)anatomy for careless infantries is still got to be the tracks. :lol: No offence meant.
