Description

This Video shows 3 Saudi M1A2S (US SEP [System Enhancement Program] Equivalent) being destroyed by Iranian Tosun (Tosan) ATGM (Soviet Konkurs ATGM upgrade). As of March 2016, a total of 6 M1A2S Abrams tanks were destroyed with the crews not surviving. This Video shows 3 of them. I was inspired to compile this Video due to so many comments on my translated Armata Video claiming the Abrams Tank is "Superior and Indestructible in all ways". I respect all tanks, and each tank has its own Pros and Cons. I love the Abrams, but no tank is "Indestructible". - Translated T-14 Armata Tank Documentary: https://youtu.be/gxVLL_25gog - SAA Early February Aleppo Offensive Compilation: https://youtu.be/eBuAL9TABa8 - FSA Moderate Rebel Firing BGM-71 TOWs February Compilation: https://youtu.be/xshpdak7R7g SOURCES: - Source 1: http://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/houthi-rebels-destroy-m1-abrams-tanks-with-basic-irania-1726478735 - Source 2: http://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2015/09/gulf-states-pay-price-for-intervention-against-houthis-in-yemen.php NOTE FROM CHANNEL ADMIN: - Firstly: This was NOT meant to be a comparison between M1A2 and T-90 Tanks. It was a TOW Compilation like I have made in the past. - Second: About the DEPLETED URANIUM (DU) ARMOR. I am well aware that the US does not Export DU Armor. However, this is Saudi Arabia we are speaking about. General Dynamics Official Website Source's state that M1A2S Configuration is built upon M1A2 SEP (V1). This is not an M1A2M (Iraq Export), this is not just any Abrams export, this is a specifically made M1A2S from the SEP made specifically for the US's largest ally and biggest spender of the entire region! Saudi Arabia has the THIRD LARGEST Military Spending Worldwide! Larger than Russia's Military Spending. There is not a SINGLE SOURCE that will deny that the M1A2S having DU Armor, on the contrary, there are sources (linked above) that claim the M1A2S has "Enhanced" DU Armor. Whether this "Enhanced" Version is from the Improved SEP DU Armor, of the Saudi's made their own and enhanced their Tank Configuration with it, regardless, it is difficult to believe that the third largest global Military Spender, #1 customer of US Arms, Closest Ally of US in the region which have the same stance in Wars, and with Saudi's Military Budget increasing annually by 17%-25% from 2014-2015, with the possibility of reaching $90 Billion in 2016 (to compare, Russia's highest possible Military Spending in 2016 could be $67 Billion). Still think Saudi Arabia isn't able to obtain DU Armor, either through buying or making it? Let me know. Regardless, DU Armor is just to Rectangular Shaped Plates on the Front side of the Turret, 1 on the Left Front side and 1 on the Right Front side. A hit to the Side Skirt (which caused the cook off here) would not be saved by additional armor at a completely different part of the tank.
