M1A2 Abrams SEP

(System Enhancement Package)

The M1A2 is the US Army's Main Battle Tank (MBT), mounting a 120mm M256 smoothbore main gun and a deadly assortment of machine guns combined with an extremely strong armor and high mobility, this vehicle is sure to be a formidable unit on the battlefield.

Special Features


- Six-barreled M250 Smoke Grenade Launchers (located on the right and left sides of the turret, these will allow the tank to protect itself in a thick cloud of smoke which will also block thermal imaging, thus it MAY be able to avoid incoming heat-seeking missiles by "breaking" the Infrared Homing lock).

View of the commander's M2HB machine gun, note the shields (which are used in order to protect the gunner to a certain level).




The M1A2 SEP also received a 3rd generation depleted uranium encased armor with graphite coating, meaning it's more than prepared for engagement with other "3rd Generation" modern MBT's (Main battle Tanks).
