    I think the UK has one that can shoot on the move!

    Fact 1 is incorrect. Now figure out which other tanks use the same gun...before the Abrams.

    The German Leopards can engage targets while on the move and they've had that capability since the 1980's. The Israeli Merkava was upgraded to hit on the move capability in the 1990s. I'm sure there's more. The maker of this video needs to do better research. As for the final question in the video, "tank" or "water tank" was the code name that the British used for armor during WWI.

    according to what i've heard, both the UK and Germany have tanks that can hit on the move. I believe their names are Challanger and Leopard. i might have spelled the names wrong but im sure the tanks im referring to can be figured out.

    One thing that Military.com got wrong, the M-1 Abrams isn't the only MBT that can fire it's guns while on the move. The German's Leopard ll A6 also can engage targets while moving and it's new L-55 120 MM gun outperforms the M-1 Abrams gun in range and a more powerful projectile.If they got that wrong in the video, what else did they get wrong ? The Leopard ll A6 may be the best MBT not the M-1 Abrams.

    "...little risk from incoming return fire." Right...

    I really enjoy these videos, but the music is way too loud and it is difficult to understand the narrator. How about reducing the music levels by 70 - 80% guys?

    Like in the movie Fury, the tank is a lethal weapon and home.

    First basic training company for the M1 at Fort Knox. Awesome piece of machinery! Balanced it on a 3 or 4 foot high wall. Part of a driving course.Spent 2 years in 3rd ID in Germany and 2 years with 1/7 Cav at Fort Hood. Got out and spent almost 2 years in National guard on M48A5's. Talk about a time warp backwards...

    Volume of Music to Voice: Hard to pick out voice. Turn up the mouth or turn down the tune. Factual Accuracy: Questionable on several points. Visuals: Synthetic image (and voice-mumble) need re-work. Conclusion: Abrams (thumbs up); this infotainment (thumbs down).
