    Who ever said that american tanks are the best in the world????

    This notion that american products are the best has to abolished.

    The abrams requires more than 6 gallons of fuel just to start. Comes with a Honeywell AGT1500C gas turbine engines, so the filters for the intake alone will cost millions and is extremely tough and costly to maintain……

    The american themselves find it a costly tank to maintain!!
