  1. Well, Firstname Lastname (a.k.a lavictoireestlavie), why don't you give us the Youtube video link where you've read such idiotic statements. :neutral:
  2. I based myself on this data sheet. Source : Hunnicutt, R.P, Abrams: A History of the American Main Battle Tank, Volume 2, Armored fighting vehicle books, Presidio Press (February 1991).
  3. Are you referring to the Dorchester Level 2E (DL2E) armor configuration ?
  4. Do you have the whole After Action Review document ?
  5. Your web article is nearly 10 years old.
  6. Apparently, two more of the crew were also injured : http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1551418/MoD-kept-failure-of-best-tank-quiet.html :???:
  7. Don't waste your time on answering to comments written by fanboys.
  8. With the DL2E* armor configuration, the FV4034 Challenger 2 weighs 64,95 tons (metric). AFAIK, the Street Fighter has the DL2F armor configuration : http://www.rommelkiste.de/Fahrzeuge/Challenger2/Chally_OPT/c2.jpg I wonder if Steel Beasts takes into account the net horsepower instead of the gross horsepower. :???: *Dorchester Level 2 E, nose-mounted ROMOR-A ERA and ROMOR-C ballistic side skirts.
  9. A rumour says that the rocket dropped short, exploding on the ground, sending shrapnel and blast up under the tank, penetrating the steel belly of the tank, the driver; Trooper Sean Chance, lost three of his toes in that attack. Apparently, two more of the crew were also injured : http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1551418/MoD-kept-failure-of-best-tank-quiet.html Others claim that the PG-29V warhead still has triggered the ERA-reinforced lower front hull. :heu: This one has a composite-reinforced floor and Dorchester composite add-on armor on the lower glacis. I wonder how much it weighs with all these upgrades...
  10. On Saturday 6 April 2003 in Basra, a seemingly abandoned T-55 fired a 100 mm round that struck the central ROMOR-A ERA panel protecting the nose of the FV4034 Challenger 2. After a spectacular explosion, there was no penetration of the tank. Unfortunatly, it is not specified which kind of 100mm round was used against the british tank (probably a HEAT round). :neutral:
  11. So, the Leclerc Série 2 would have the same protection level as the Leopard 2A4 although having a turret which is 3 tonnes heavier than its German counterpart. :heu:
  12. It should be noted that the transmission broke down in the middle of the firing trial. :cvcsalut:
