A quick size comparison between my 1/35 trumpeter challenger 2 and 1/35 Tamiya Abrams. Its kind of cool to see the modern British and American tank design side by side. While they have some similar lines/angles I think the challenger 2 is just a little slicker looking.
Fire at will boys!

The Abrams design is starting to look old now.
It's the most overrated tank Next to the Leo 2
enc86 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2014
yea it really is, was thinking that just the other day. even with the TUSK upgrade, shes starting to look old. wonder what the final M1A3 will look like.

yea i sure if someone reads this they might get mad at me, but i agree(well i think for its time the Abrams was pretty badass) but i am not a HUGE fan of the leo2. i know its a great tank and has some awesome design elements, but overall i am not huge into them. the only reason why i made my leo3 is because at least once a week someone would ask me about making a leo2.

personally for overall looks and design, much more of a fan of British challengers and JGSDF armor.

Challenger 2 looks so streamline and almost futuristic.
Leopard 2 1979
M1 Abram 1980
Challanger 1 1983
AMX Leclerc 1993
Challenger 2 1998
So yeah Challenger 2 is the still most modern Western Tank even up to this day (Does not include the T-84 from Ukraine)

If WW3 Breaks out next year we'll see if the Leo 2 is a Tiger or a Pussy :P

I've been buffing up tanks for this mod and I've made the Challenger 2 and it's brother Megatron the strongest tanks, they're almost unstoppable but they can be destroyed with the right amount of firepower or a lucky shot.

it really is a sexy beast, didn't know off hand it was the most modern for that area(really really like the Leclerc for crazy reasons, have been waiting to get good, to make a kitbash with one)
Japan has a type 10,produced in 2010(looks to me has alot of elements from the french this time around) allso china has some really cool looking toys(tho i would have to Google a bit) Really like their deign choices, deciding to use elements, a"best of" on their tanks.
did not know about the 84 upgrade(ill look it up) honesty i am not very knowledgeable on the Russian produced tanks(can see the torches and pitch forks now) i respect them and their tanks, but from just the looks/style they are not what i go for. its pretty easy to tell if you really look over what tanks i have build lol.

yea thing is even tho i don't get into their armor much, from what i do know, they really are some of the best. would hate for a full on WW3(and don't think that would happen) it seems like things keep brewing, sadly their will be a conflict.
maybe a more realsisic and toned down version of "world in conflict" European chapter story. pretty awesome game if you haven't played it(cheap on steam too)
Badwolf66 Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2014
I have played world on Conflict wasn't happy with it, I prefer the semi-realism of Wargame Red Dragon with over 1500 different units from 17 different nations form the years 1875 to 1991 with prototype units up to 1995 (you only get like 2 or 3 of the prototype units)
America really wants to provoke Russia but they aren't falling for it.
enc86 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014
see i really liked it for what it was, streamlined action.

i dont have red dragon yet but do own European escalation. really freaking epic,in dept game! dont even know if its a fair comparison lol.

yea i don't know whats wrong with my country sometimes. just when we were finial starting to get along with them on a political level, people in my government realsised how much "better" things were during the cold war. easier to get the fear vote if you have the red menace .

hopefully that comment will not be taken outta context if anyone reads it(and thus why i don't comment on political stuff alot) just that to me it makes more sence to be freinds with russia(and many more) than to try to smear or provoke , even if we feel that what they are doing is wrong. from a moral standpoint, we really don't have a leg to stand on.
