M1 Abrams tanks are a moving fortress. It’s an American third-generation main battle tank of the US Armed Forces, as well as of several other countries. Highly mobile, designed for modern armored ground warfare, the M1 is well armed and heavily armored. Now we know it can also swim.
Manufactured in the United States, the vehicle is named after American General Creighton Abrams, former Chief of Staff of the US Army and Commander of US military forces in Vietnam from 1968 to 1972. The M1 Abrams entered U.S. service in 1980, replacing the M60 tank. Three main versions of the M1 Abrams have been deployed, the M1, M1A1, and M1A2, incorporating improved armament, protection, and electronics.
