    T-90 used to be called T-72BU. T-14 is a completely new chassis.

    Abrams Has Better Accuracy at Long ranges

    But T-72B3 has Fast mobility

    Both has Comparable Atgms And Sabot rounds

    But russian has More Ability to mass Produce It Will Negate M1 Abrams Advantages

    USA has Better APS Protection

    yeah its pretty Evenly matched Tanks Likes T-90 MS And T-90M are Over Kill for Abrams M1A1, M1A2 ,M1A3

    Who would have thought USA Will Be Overlapped by Russians 2020

    While T-72B3 is better than earlier variants, it cannot be on par with M1 Abrams class because the latter is more accommodating and safe design for technologies and crew respectively.

    Actually Quality of armour T-72b3
    Is better accept M1A3 and M1A4

    What gives US edge it's Far superior APS
    And it's engagement at long range accurately

    In contrast:

    AMERICAN exclusive variants receive depleted uranium mesh for added protection:

    "The composite armor reinforced by depleted uranium gives the M1A2 the toughest armor in any tank on the surface of the planet."

    Further protective measures can also be applied upon demand:

    Ammunition storage arrangement is SEPARATE (safe):

    The latest variant of M1 Abrams is identified as M1A2C and its armor specifications are CLASSIFIED.

    M1 Abrams class can exceed 70 tons in weight for a reason.

    More Like Exaggerated Propaganda For selling


    M1A2 Abrams Stock Armor

    The M1A2 comes stock with the same depleted uranium as the top end M1A1, offering massive protection across the front, with an option for even further bolstering through additional armor packages.

    The SEP package heavily reinforces the stock depleted uranium panels, offering a measurable increase in frontal protection sufficient to defend against even the most modern of ATGMs and penetrators.
