Are tanks worth it?

Postby Unstoppable Empire of Doom » Wed Jun 13, 2018 10:20 am

The costs on society for building and maintaining defenses have always been high. Nation's have traditionally needed them to remain independent or expand. Old technology often remains in place decades after it's use has ended.

Tanks are possibly coming to that point in their history. At 2 to 10 million USD a vehicle they are expensive to build and maintain. Even modern variants can be destroyed by relatively inexpensive personal weaponry. They rarely engage each other. APC's and other "light" combat vehicles have been up armored and upgunned in continual mission creep. It's nearly to the point where a Bradly or btr can stand in for a tank. Anything requiring heavier firepower may come from the air.

Tanks require significantly more logistical support then almost any other ground equipment. Transport, maintenance, fuel, training, etcetera.

On the other hand a tank must have an affect on morale. They are the spearhead of mechanized warfare. The modern era has been filled with one sided wars that have skewed the view of certain nation's.the idea that armor is of little value is predicated upon a belief that air superiority is assured. Forthcoming technology will quite possibly require these beasts.

What do y'all think?

I think Tanks still have a while left before things start changing.

Yeah i agree, tanks are still useful and do still play a substantial role for pretty much every army that has them in the field at the moment.

It all depends on what you think your army is for. If you want your army to go on colonial adventures where it rapes innocent nations or to be a bulwark against such efforts by imperialists than yes, you want tanks and you want a lot of them and good ones at that. If not, than I guess you don't.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

let's put it this way - if you're in an open field with no air support, a tank is definitely not something you want to see, regardless of your equipment.

The technology of the tank has improved over the 100 years of its existence, and today our main battle tanks are the most advanced they have ever been. Rounds capable of penetrating 500+ mm of armour, composite armour made to withstand these rounds, technology that allows them to see in the dark, etc. As with every form of technology, they will continue to advance until they cannot advance any further and become obsolete. I do not see this happening within the next 30 years, but by 2050 who knows what'll exist.

But in today's world, tanks and other armoured vehicles are necessary. War will not go away anytime soon, and it's always good to have some depleted uranium between you and the enemy. But never forget who's watchin' them from above ;)

Tanks are very useful for fighting tanks and other armored vehicles (some top-of-the-line armored vehicles might stand up to a thirty year old tank model in a fight, but I doubt they'd beat it), but not so much for fighting infantry. The reason this isn't seen as useful isn't because it's not useful, it's because we're fighting insurgent armies that consist of infantry supported by civilian vehicles with sheet metal bolted to them, which is not the tank's ideal environment. IFVs and the like are more useful against terrorist armies, but I'd like to see an IFV go up against anything other than infantry and come out on top.

In addition, let's be real here, the terrorists aren't really a threat compared to the likes of Russia, China, or North Korea. Those three are the ones we need to prepare to fight, not a bunch of brainwashed peasant soldiers in the Middle East.

Regarding the Challenger 2 tank.

During the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the Challenger 2 tanks suffered no tank losses to Iraqi fire, although one was penetrated by an Improvised explosive device (IED). This was, at the time, unprotected by Dorchester armour. The driver was injured. In one encounter within an urban area, a Challenger 2 came under attack from irregular forces with machine guns and rocket propelled grenades. The driver's sight was damaged and while attempting to back away under the commander's directions, the other sights were damaged and the tank threw its tracks entering a ditch. It was hit by 14 rocket propelled grenades from close range and a MILAN anti-tank missile.[32] The crew survived, safe within the tank until it was recovered for repairs, the worst damage being to the sighting system. It was back in operation six hours later. One Challenger 2 operating near Basra survived being hit by 70 RPGs in another incident.[33]

In August 2006 south east of al-Amarah, southern Iraq, an RPG-29 capable of firing a tandem-charge penetrated the frontal lower underbelly armour of a Challenger 2 commanded by Captain Thomas Williams of The Queens's Royal Hussars. The tank, which had already been hit by 10–15 RPGs, small arms and sniper fire, was attempting to draw fire away from another callsign that had become stricken.[citation needed] Its driver, Trooper Sean Chance, lost part of his foot in the blast; two more of the crew were slightly injured. Chance was able to reverse the vehicle 1.5 mi (2.4 km) to the regimental aid post despite his injuries.


Only one Chally was killed during the Iraq war and that was a blue on blue by another Challenger 2.

They seem to be pretty okay at dealing with infantry carried weapons...

I think we'll still need the heavies for quite some time.

In a way the debate around tanks is quite similar to the debate around manned jet fighters. Both are expensive to build and maintain and both have proved quite unnefective in asymetric conflicts. However, a weapon system is only viable or not in relative terms, depending on what you use it for and the doctrine of your army. For fighting another conventional army, you still need tanks. I don't think we have yet reached the point where weapons are so effective powerful and heavily armored vehicles aren't useful anymore.
I mean IFVs and stuff are very effective but they are heavily fragile, one shouldn't overestimate them. They're very useful but they can't be the be all and end all of the battlefield.

Until infantry acquire weapons able to take out tanks from the same distance tanks can, tanks will be needed to eliminate other tanks and steamroll light vehicles.
