Ok! Fact is I like tanks, So I'm starting this thread so any auther tank enthusiast can discuss the highs and lows of the worlds toughest war vehicle.
I personaly like the M1A2 Abrams: fast, tough, powerful and the only truly digitilased tank at the moment!

You dissapoint me. Rommel made a name for himself leading tanks in WW2. As for choppers, modern tanks take at least two infantry heald missile to bring them down (and in the same spot) while for a chopper one is enough. So there is still a place for the tank.
Your ball.

i know who he was, you think im dumb. im just saying that a chopper can take a tank down with ease, plus choppers are fast moving and most infantry dont carry heat seaking stingers.

Choppers are designed to kill tanks, true. But AA defence is a nightmare for them, also in modern armys many carri heat seaking missiles some mounted on 4x4 vehicles. Example Humvee with TOW missile. Also the chopper was defeted in the Russian-Afganistan war, where infantry with handheald missile launchers wriked havoc among them.

True again, but nowadays nobody uses RPG against choppers anymore, Stingers are prefered. Also there was a story where an iraqui citesen shot down an Apache with a rifle, this is impossible with a tank also, thei did the same with tanks and also with scout drones as I recall.

number one: there were 6 of them with AK-47s
number two: every single thing has a weak spot

if you get up behind a tank with a rifle, run up to it and open the hatch, your going to kill some guys arnt you.

1.Tank hatches are usualy seald.
2.Geting close to a tank that's doing 40kph is rather hard.
3.Tanks usualy have around 2-3 machinguns, and usualy trave in platoons wit hinfantry cover.
Again, your ball!

the hind is pretty well armed but its slower the the apche, which leaves it open to ground fire.

Sorry for disspointing you but that chopper is still under development. There about 2 or 3 prototipes around (though I'm not sure). Also it employs stealth technology witch is only available to the US.
