You are correct, TO A POINT. A rocket cannot penetrate the Abrams armor.

A 2-liter sized stationary explosively formed penetrator (AKA "EFP") CAN open the abrams like a bag of chips. The armor spalls on impact and you essentially kill with the protective measures.

If that is an Abram's Tank, good ******* luck getting anything less than an AC-130 round to mess up the " **** you". Abram's tanks can take a lot. Trust me, I would know, I've ridden in one. Actually funny story I have. The second time we were in the tank, keep in mind 3 to 4 people were in it (including me) rest of my unit were driving HumVees. We ran over an IED in the tank and our first sergeant, who happened to be driving it, once we hit it I was shocked how little I truly felt. It's hard to compare to but, if I had to compare it to something, the closest would be like riding in a school bus in the back and the bus goes over a rock or something. I'm serious, that might be hard to imagine but I was shocked how little we felt.
One of the other guys in the tank was like. Not even exaggerating at all.

The M1A1/2 Abrams is equipped with the British made Mk.I Chobhams armour, nano-tube ceramic plating etc. etc. which is pretty tough **** .

However, the Challanger II MBT is equipped with Dorchester armour (Chobhams successor). Chobhams has the same penetration resistance as 330cm of steel plate. Dorchester has an unknown amount, as no current round can penetrate it, but it's thought to be in the 500cm region. Saying that, no current round can penetrate Chobhams.

Challanger II is the M1A2's big daddy, all be-it a little slower and ever so slightly lacking in the gun department.

As a United States Army soldier and a tank mechanic, I challenge this statement, to a point. There is also classified material within the armor I am not capable of disclosing, but the Abrams can withstand much more than you seem to think you know. ON THE OTHER HAND, the challenger II is still one bad ass mother ****** .

The M1A2 uses silicon carbide tiles. Where as the Challanger II uses alumina tiles.

The British develop the **** , we're not exactly going to give other nations better equipment than us. Both tanks are brutes, and they both have the pros-cons, but the one I am saying is that the Challanger II can take the most pounding. Both tanks have their heavier upgraded variants (TUSK + CLIP) that have reactive charges on but either way, the Challanger II is better armoured.

The Challanger II has a weaker, but more accurate gun over long ranges and a depleting ammo pile as the L301 round it fires is no longer produced. They trialled the gun from the Leo.A31 but it did not work too well with the Challangers optics etc. etc.

M1A2 is a seriously technologically advanced tank, the most technologically advanced in the world. It's more mobile than the Challanger II on flatter ground but the Challanger II has hydropneumatic suspension which can cope with much much harsher terrain than the M1A2's torsion bars. However, the M1A2 has a much better aiming system and firing controls etc. etc.

But, at the end of the day, if both tanks were pitched against eachother it would come down to the skill of the crew, not the specs. of the tank.

the first part of the quote is very familiar. Is it from the Great Gatsby? Or the Bible?

Feel slike should be one of those

The original quote is this:
"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me."
(Psalm 23:4)

Yeah, but that sounds decidedly less "come at me, bro", and more "hold my hand, bro".
