Stripes Logo

The United States has the most powerful armed forces in the world. Three army corps stand ready to defend Western Europe from the red horde poised across the Iron Curtain. Armoured troops’ powerful M60 Patton tanks or state of the art M1 or IPM1 Abrams tanks, mechanized infantry mounted in reliable M113 personnel carriers, and light infantry of the 82nd Airborne all stand ready to stop the red tide.

Abrams Tank Platoon (TUBX08)

In 1984, the IP (Improved Performance) M1 Abrams was produced and issued to a number of tank units. The IPM1 fitted a new turret with improved frontal armoured protection. The IPM1 Abrams included a number of other improvements including; new reinforced suspension, transmission modifications, improved armour protection, improved protection between the crew and ammunition storage, as well as the new turret.

The M1 Abrams’ NATO-standard 105mm gun fires the latest long-rod, fin-stabilised ammunition, giving it incredible penetrating power. This time-tested gun combines remarkably compact rounds for a high rate of fire, with a deadly effect against almost any type of target. Its advanced stabiliser, laser rangefinder, and thermal imager allow it to hit targets at any range while moving rapidly across any terrain, whether by day or by night.
