    Kunal, in Your latest post, the second photograph shows burning T-54/55 (or rather Chinese ZTZ-59/69) not T-72 tank. Take a closer look to the hull rear, side skirts and wheels.

    Last photo shows not a BMP but MT-LB.

    Sorry. Lost way in streams, can not find about the "Greatest tank battles", therefore write here - to more near theme:
    Largest overnight a tank battle a battle is considered under a village Prokhorovka on July, 12, 1943, to 900 tanks took part in which. But it not so. The greatest one-day battle was under a village Senno in BSSR of July, 6, 1941. To 2 thousand tanks took part in him.

    A that battle soviet troops lost, sustaining losses to 1000 armored vehicles, but Germans then sustained losses also to 600 armored vehicles.
    The soviet tanks of that period were much weaker German. Basis of tank park in a that battle was made by Т- 26 and BT - 7

    They had for that time, enough strong cannon in 45-мм, but anti-bullet armor. Aero-engine, caught fire instantly from a hit. Practically there was no radio contact and fuel, and Germans had complete "domination" in mid air.
    T-34 and KV-1 was only 49 pieces.
    The German tanks consisted of basis from Т- III and T- IV,

    All of them had icannon a caliber (37, 50, 75 mm) able to contest with lignt soviet tanks and also strong assault gun of StuG III

    Soviet tanks used advantage in speed,
    [​IMG]
    but many were lined by the anti-tank cannon of Pak 35/36,
    [​IMG]
    when stopped from the shortage of petrol. And by an assault aviation from air.

    Leopard-2A4 tanks have proven themselves to vulnerable and inefficient tanks involved in the Syrian war. Good old Soviet tank T-55 from the Vietnam War showed himself in combat higher survivability than the vaunted and touted German tanks Leopard-2A4.

    Its the crew which make the difference and command, The tool has the least influence ..

    Pakistani Army loses more than 100 tanks mostly first grade M47 in a single battle, It does not meant M47 is bad tank ..

    I gave you the above information, which clearly indicates that for the same period of time, the Turkish army has lost 10 German tanks Leopard-2A4, and just only one tank M-60T amerikans production!
    It you about something said?

    German tank Leopard-2A4 - the real thin-walled tin cans. Take into account the fact that the Leopard-2A4 tanks suffered such heavy losses primarily from anti-tank weapons of the enemy. Now, just think of what used huge losses suffered by German tanks Leopard-2A4 used if they had to face the tanks of T-80UD "Birch"?

    If you are interested in this vs that, I money is on Leo A4 for obvious reasons ..

    ==============

    T-72/80/90/64 all share same drawback of carousel auto-loader, It won`t be any different from this when hit at ammunition storage at chassis, In fact Ammunition distribution is worst than T-72 / 90 in case of T-80 / 64..

    At least Leo A4 has containerized ammo bin at turret and ammunition kept at chassis at a specific location rather all around like in Tin cans ..

    Btw, Their are plenty of photos of wreaked T-80/ 64 from Ukrainian War cause by ammunition rack explosions ..

    Kunal Biswas, note that the Leopard-2A4, is as old as the T-80UD. Tank Arjun Mk.1 is a simplified copy of German tank Leopard-2A4. The real opposition Arjun Mk.1 tanks against the "hunters of Leopard-2" T-80UD, Indian tanks and tankers can only sympathize. Implications for the Indian Arjun Mk.1 tanks (simplified copy of German tank Leopard-2A4 in the Indian style) would be simply disastrous, if God forbid they have to meet face to face with the Pakistani tanks predators T-80UD "Birch", sharpened at the destruction - Leopard-2A4, and cheap imitations and copies.

    In Chechen and Russian-Ukrainian war Soviet tanks withstand frontal hits 7-8 cumulative shells. It all depends on the nature of war .
