What would you like to do?
of course not. Improved by another uses, myself. A bit more detail here. The M1 Abrams, weighs in at 60 tons, the M1A1 at 63, and the M1A2(the current model) tips the scales at 69.54 tons. While yes tornadoes have moved this much weight before, when they have they were much larger, spread out, with alot more surface area.

Thanks for the feedback!
those arrows are to separate the tanks from other companys, since all m1 abrams look the same the arrows tell what company that tank belongs to. you will see different style a…rrows on tanks of different companys
The M1, and the Bradley are actually two entirely different machines. The M1 and derivatives are collectively known as the Abrams Tank. The Bradley series of vehicles are M2's…. The M1 is a Main Battle Tank(MBT), armed with usually a 120mm Smoothbore gun, with integrated fire control systems. The Bradley which is the M2, is known as the BRadley fighting Vehicle. whlie yes it does have a turret on top it is not a tank. It is an armed and armored personnel carrier. The Abrams Tank, carries a small crew of I believe 4. Driver, gunner, Commander, and Loader. The Bradley carries the same crew, but also a squad of soldiers in the back. The Bradley fires a 20mm canon, and usually as a TOW missile system, which is capable of destroying just about any tank out there. The Bradley while called a fighting vehicle which it is, is an APC as mentioned above, and it's gun is pretty much anti personnel. The Abrams on the other hand being a tank, takes out other tanks. While the BRadley can also take out tanks, it's TOW missile system only houses 2 missiles. It is not a tank hunter, but has the TOW system for defense against tanks.
\nThe Chrysler Corporation invented the M1 Abrams tank. They later sold the Chrysler Defense division to General Dynamics.

Theoretically, one rpg hit directly into the treads of a tank could break loose a tread and render the tank immobile. However, this is very unlikely. The rpg would have to be …at least an rpg-9 (rpg-7's being the more common model). And the small area of vulnerability, means that to have a chance of knocking the track loose, a large number of rpg's would have to hit the tank before one got the lucky hit. A lucky hit to the GPS (Gunners Primary Sight), or other targeting sensors such as the laser range finder could disable the ballistic computer. This would make the main gun far less effective.
M1A2 is the more advanced model.
The Challenger. Although the Abrams is one of the three best in the world, the Challenger has greater accuracy, greater offroad speed, superior armour and improved firepower. …American tank armour is made by a British company and acted for the Challenger's armour's prototype. Challenger armour has been improvd twice since then.
Any tank can fall to a 'mobility kill' with one RPG if it should hit a track and break it. Not the easiest shot to make, but it does happen. As for the capabilities, armour …levels, and specifics of the protection systems of the Abrams, the information is classified, as it is with most every current production battle tank in the world.
Most tornadoes would not be able to. But an extremely strong tornado, most likely an EF5 could likely lift one seeing as how they can pick up buildings.
It depends on the variety and terrain the tank is in. The older models could do 42mph on road and 25mph off road. However, the newest versions could do about 60mph on road and… 36mph off road.
To destroy the enemy and his objectives. The first M1 Abrams battle tanks were delivered to the US Army in 1980. 3,273 M1 tanks were produced for the US Army. 4,796 M1A1 tanks… were built for the US Army, 221 for the US Marines and 880 co-produced with Egypt.
There are four crew positions on the M-1 series Main Battle Tank. The Tank Commander(TC) is responsible for commanding and coordinating all actions of the crew. The Gunner(GNR…) is responsible for acquiring and engaging targets with the main gun and coax machinegun. The Loader(LDR) is responsible for loading the main gun and engaging targets with his machinegun. The Driver(DVR) is responsible for maneuvering the tank. All crew members are responsible for the maintenance of the tank and must be able to assume the duties of their fellow crewmen if necessary.
