The authors write that American tanks during the Gulf War destroyed more than a thousand Iraqi tanks, including the Soviet-built T-72. According to experts, the M1 Abrams outperforms the T-72 thanks to the M829 rounds that can penetrate the armor of Russian vehicles. That is why the authors called the American tank the ideal T-72 destroyer.
At the same time, experts do not exclude that the T-14 “Armata” and the Chinese Type 99A can compete against the M1 Abrams. The former have 125mm cannons capable of firing long-range anti-tank missiles. Plus, these cars are fast.
