    If you had one of those my son in law would love to crew for you. He was a tanker for about 20 years and is now a scout because the Army is phasing out tanks. He was really bummed, he loves his tanks.

    Remember when the emperor had a beer with the white cop and the black prof?
    That sure went a long way toward improving race relations didn't it???

    I think we've had gyroscope stabilized weapons since like the 40s. What is a wonderment is that German poured a beer he didn't drink.

    I think Abrams can do the same thing. they use the same turret as the Leopard, well, pretty much the same. I am sure there are many mods that make them different, but they are basically the same as we ripped it off from the Germans

    Looking again, thats not a Leopard. looks WWIIish with the boxyness of the turret

    Not the turret... the gun and stabilization system are German made in the Abrams (I believe)
