Despite its shortcomings, the Sherman remained in service during the Korean War alongside newer tanks including the M26 Pershing, which briefly saw action at the end of World War II, and the M46 Patton.
M47 patton tank
The Patton, the first in a family of tanks named after the legendary General Patton, it boasted a larger 90mm gun, thicker armor, and a more powerful V12 engine. During the early phases of the war, American tanks went up against Soviet-supplied North Korean Ts. But these were quickly dealt with and tank battles became few and far between.
Instead, tanks increasingly acted as infantry support. In this role the Pershing, with its unreliable transmission, was eventually replaced by the M I had never fired so many 90mm rounds in such rapid succession. But in the mid s the Cold War began to heat up in southeast Asia and some American tanks found themselves fighting in Vietnam.
The M48 became the workhorse tank of the Vietnam war along with the M Sheridan light tank. Firing a 90mm beehive anti-personnel round directly at the besieged tank, sending 4, metal darts washing over the hull. In , the U. The Army envisaged the MBT as a universal tank that was maneuverable, packed a punch, and was well-armored yet light. Using new lighter composite armor, more efficient engines, and improved suspension, the MBT combined the firepower and protection of a heavy tank with the mobility of a medium tank.
Packing a mm gun, armor up to 10 inches thick, and a brake-horsepower engine, the M60 could travel up to 30mph and only required a crew of four. The Army fielded three major variants with the last, the M60A3, meeting a similar fate as the M48—rendered obsolete in the s by the M1 Abrams. Development of a new Main Battle Tank to replace the aging M60 Patton began in the s, and after a decade of research and development the M1 Abrams was born.
Boasting new lighter composite armor, a mm later mm gun,and a top road speed of 45mph the M1 was designed to match the formidable new Soviet T MBT. The Abrams has a four man crew and could be fitted with explosive reactive armor that can destroys warheads. One of the new technologies built into the Abrams was GPS.
It was an invaluable tool during the Gulf campaign, making it much simpler for U. The Gulf War saw the last great tank battles of the 20th century.
On the February 26th, , at the Battle of 73 Eastings, the superior technology and training of the M1 Abrams and its crews came to the fore as Captain H. McMaster seized the initiative and led a 9-tank troop straight at the heart of an elite Iraqi armored division. We drove our tanks into the center of the [Iraqi] position and destroyed many of the enemy vehicles from the rear. The day after the battle at 73 Eastings, the 1st Armored Division clashed with several Iraqi armored divisions at Medina Ridge, this would be the last major tank battle of Operation Desert Storm.
Iraqi forces lost tanks while the U. Since then, the M1 Abrams has been upgraded and deployed during the invasion of Iraq.
