Overview:

The M1A3 Abrams is the newest Main Battle Tank (MBT) in service with the Rechan military. Developed from the M1A2 Abrams SEP, the M1A3 combines next generation technology and weapons systems with the old.

One of the many upgrades from the M1A2 Abrams SEP is the addition of an Active Protection System that utilizes both the Iron Fist system developed by Israel Military Industries, and the regionally developed Cavalier Weapon System. Also in use by the M1A3 is a chaff/smoke grenades launches as well as the ability to produce a smoke screen by using it's 1,650 horsepower turbine engine.

The Iron Fist APS combines both soft and hard kill capabilities into one, using a jamming system to defeat guided missiles, as well as having the ability to launch an explosive charge to deflect munitions such as unguided rockets and even kinetic penetrators. Several modifications have been made to the system, which includes increasing the number of projectiles per tube to two by using a method similar to Metal Storm, and the expansion of it's soft countermeasures to include a wider variety of missiles.

The upgraded Abrams employs Dorchester Level III armor, a upgraded version of what is known as Chobham armor, with reactive-armor tiles on the exterior of the tank to increase protection. Slat armor has been added to the rear of the tank to detonate ordnance before striking the vulnerable powerplant to decrease the amount of damage dealt to the tank. The M1A3 also sports full Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical protection which allows the improved Abrams to operate in environments that have suffered the detonation of a weapon of mass destruction or that has been contaminated in some way.

A M360 120 millimeter smoothbore gun makes up the main armament of the M1A3 Abrams, replacing the L44 Rheinmetall found on the lesser A2 variant. In addition to the main cannon, a M312 .50 caliber machine gun serves as the coaxial gun, further complemented by a pintle-mounted M240 machine gun. A M307 25x59 millimeter grenade launcher or M312 .50 caliber machine gun can be mounted in the vehicles Remote Weapon Station, a modified version of the CROWS weapon system designed to be more durable under stressful combat conditions. A small missile pod containing Starkstreak II missiles is in place on the left side of the M1A3's turret to serve as a defense from helicopters and in some cases jet aircraft.

Using millimeter wave RADAR, the Abrams can guide now guide shells such as the XM1111 Mid-Range Munition on target or act as an artillery piece by using the GPS guidance system. The M360 gun is capable of firing any current smart munitions, and electronic systems are able to be upgraded to accept future rounds. Also included in the A3 upgrade of the Abrams, an EMP Generator similar to the T-90's EMT-71 system used to destroy magnetic mines affords the platform the ability to render mines inert, and can be used to destroy electronic equipment used by enemy militaries. The view ports on the Abrams are now complemented by digital cameras which allow the crew a 360 degree view of the battlefield in Infrared, Optical, and Night Vision modes thanks to the improved 'glass cockpit' of the MBT.

The Intervehicle Information System (IVIS) is also integrated into the A3, which significantly increases the combat effectiveness of M1A3 units as IVIS allows vehicle crews to connect to a tactical map able to be updated with positions of various combat obstacles and enemies, and even friendless nearly nullifying the "Fog of War". An overhauled communications suite gives tankers the ability to access satellite data networks as well as numerous secure radio channels; also added are new datalinks which can transfer and deliver information on par with wired data networks used by the military.

Units are now available for sale on the international market to stable, established nations pending approval from the Federation of Rechart.

Upgrade Package is now available for export at the cost of 5.1 million USD. This does not include the costs to refit existing M1A2 SEP tanks, or any related costs. It is recommended to buy the tank as a whole unit.

ooc: Not quite, its still the OP's property regardless of whether or not he is still active. This is one of the occasions where we forget this thread exists and walk away from it leaving it to rest in peace. Plenty of other good tanks around to choose from if you still need an MBT.

Indeed. In fact, hate to say it, but there are many tanks out there that are so much better then this one. Try Lyras', Crookfur, Sumer, or Haruspex' tanks, for example.

My Friend,
We would like to buy 1000 Abrams seperated into 4 Patches
We need to First Patch which is 250 MBTs before 10 June 2013
And we need to have the entire 4 patches before 2015
We will buy the 1000 Abrams II with the latest Upgrade Package available ($15Million/Per Tank)
$15,000,000 x 1000 = $15,000,000,000

And we would love to know, how much does it cost to build Abrams II in our Factories?

And also, how much does it cost to build all types of Ammunition?


Thanks..
