Request for Abrams related manuals

Recommended Posts

Does anybody have links to FM/TM's relating to the M1 Abrams, preferably the M1A2 SEP? I found FM 3-20.12 Tank Gunnery on Scribd but couldn't download it, if anyone has that please link it too.

Yep, but unfortunately I can't release them.

 

US TRADOC maybe more liberal with their classification system.

I doubt you will find a source for FMs and TMs for the 'A2 SEP since it is still in service.

 

Is there anything information in particular you were looking for?

No, your best bet would be to use the SB Wiki. http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=M1A2_(SEP)

Sometimes the things that governments keep classified just make me laugh.

They'll execute you for revealing secrets about it, meanwhile, we've got one on display in a museum and already know everything about it.

TRADOC is also restrictive when it comes to TMs and FMs on the M1A2. Unless you decide to enlist in the Army, I doubt you will be able to access them for the foreseeable future.

We'll of course you are entitled to your opinion, but I have to work within the rules, not matter how silly you might regard them to be.

Oh I never suggested that you should do anything but work within the rules.

 

Just saying that governments in general tend to be kinda stupid sometimes.  For example, Hungary considers the SA-6 "Gainful" (2K21 "Kub") SAM system to be a super-dooper highly classified national secret...

Meanwhile, everyone who could possible go to war with Hungary either already has their own SA-6's that they operate or otherwise got access to the system to learn everything about it...But it's still a secret!!!  Shh!!

Well, they have probably upgraded them since the USSR dissolved.

It's in pre-release so maybe the publishers haven't decided what picture should be on the front cover and they needed something something they could show to a potential purchaser?  Maybe the person picking the picture doesn't have a clue?  Maybe it's fake?

 

In other words, I haven't got a clue.
