Abrams Tank
The M1 Abrams in reality.

The M1 Abrams is a main battle tank produced in the United States, which replaced the aging M60 Patton in 1980. It was designed by Chrysler Defense (now General Dynamics Land Systems). The M1 Abrams is named after General Creighton Abrams, former Army Chief of Staff and Commander of US military forces during the Vietnam War from 1968 to 1972. It is armed with a 120mm smoothbore cannon, two M240 Medium Machine Guns, and a .50 Cal M2 Browning.

The M1A2 is the main battle tank of the United States Marine Corps in Battlefield 2. The differences between it and the other main battle tanks in the game are almost purely cosmetic.

The M1A2 has one major advantage over other Battlefield 2 tanks, as the weak spot below the Abrams' turret is only visible when the tank is pointing upwards, whereas on the other tanks the weak spot is also visible in normal conditions.

Battlefield 2: Special ForcesEdit

In Special Forces the M1A2 Abrams is issued to the British SAS as their main battle tank. It appears on:

The M1A2 is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat.

SingleplayerEdit

The M1A2 only appears in the single player mission Big Bang. It is the US main battle tank.

MultiplayerEdit

The M1A2 serves as the USMC main battle tank. It has two positions: the driver and the turret gunner. The driver operates the vehicle and its main gun with 100 rounds while the turret gunner has a Browning M2 HMG with 1000 rounds.

The M1A2 can easily take out armored vehicles such as the Akrep, the BMD-3, or even the BK-1990 with ease, but it can be countered by engineers with rocket launchers or an Attack Helicopters.

The M1A2 Abrams is the Main Battle Tank of the US Army 222nd Army Battalion in Battlefield: Bad Company. It is identical to the one featured in Battlefield 2, apart from the addition of a TUSK (Tank Urban Survival Kit). Additionally, the secondary gunner is less exposed and can only be shot from an elevated position. The gunner also has usable sights, allowing for more accurate bursts of fire.

"U.S. Main Battle Tank (MBT) armed with a 120mm smoothbore cannon and a remotely operated .50 caliber HMG. The M1 is heavily armored, and highly mobile and designed to dominate armored ground warfare and urban operations."
— In-game description

SingleplayerEdit

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2's singleplayer, several friendly non-controllable M1A2s are seen and one is driven by the player during level Heavy Metal. This particular M1A2 possesses extremely thick armor, long range optics and a very fast loader which can reload the main gun in just over 1.5 seconds.

MultiplayerEdit

In multiplayer, the M1A2 is the standard US main battle tank. The HUD for the M1A2 is colored green and can sometimes be hard to distinguish from the background due to lack of contrast. It features a clear sight but the lack of range markers and defined sights make the main gun harder to aim at range than the T-90's.

Like the T-90, the M1A2 can be upgraded with any of the vehicle specializations that the driver has equipped: Active Armor Upgrade (25% more health), Quick Reload Package (-15% reload time on main cannon), Improved Warheads Package (25% more damage per shot), Alternate Weapon Package (adds a driver controlled 7.62mm LMG), Smoke Countermeasures Package (driver controlled smoke launchers, does not remove tracer darts), High Power Optics Package (gives the main gun 10X zoom) and the Electronic Warfare Package (gives the tank the ability to act as a motion sensor). Unlike Battlefield: Bad Company, the gunner of the tank can zoom in.

"The M1 "Abrams" is the principal battle tank of the US Marine Corps."
— Battlelog description

The M1 Abrams is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 3 and was first seen at the end of the Fault Line Gameplay Trailer. It is capable of firing M829 APFSDS-T rounds, and has a coaxial M240C and a top-mounted M2 Browning.

SingleplayerEdit

The Thunder Run Tank Gameplay Trailer features a singleplayer segment in which a player character, Jonathan "Jono" Miller of the 1st Tank Battalion, must assault a PLR compound commanding an M1 Abrams. In the mission, the player is able to zoom-in with the main gun's sight. The player also has a coaxial machine gun at their disposal, though they must first switch to the secondary weapon, meaning that they cannot use the main cannon and the coaxial machine gun at the same time.

MultiplayerEdit

The M1 Abrams is initially equipped with the smoothbore cannon for the gunner and a remote-controlled machine gun for the passenger. The driver can sprint to increase the speed of the vehicle, though increasing the turning radius. Sprinting also allows the tank to ascend inclines that it couldn't normally manage.

The M1A2 has a few advantages and disadvantages to the RGF counterpart, the T-90. It has better handling when using the sprint function and its hull shape allows it to get under the T-90 during ramming, while the T-90 has a hard time doing the same to the M1A2. The main disadvantage is that is much taller, and therefore easier to detect and engage than the T-90.

The CITV Station specialization allows a third teammate to enter the vehicle as long as they have unlocked it. Other unlocks include different types of ammunition for the main gun, coaxial machine guns, and other vehicle improvements.

Trivia Edit

Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit

  • The Abrams is only seen 3 times in the entire campaign of Battlefield: Bad Company.
  • In Battlefield: Bad Company, the hatch on the turret is open. If a player mans the machine gun in the tank, an explosion or shot hitting the top of the Abrams can potentially harm and/or kill this player. However, the driver is safe and can only be killed as the entire tank being destroyed.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit

  • In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, if the player goes into third person cam, lowers the gun as low as possible, and spins it 360°, they can see that it clips through the back of the tank.

Battlefield 3Edit

  • The turret in Battlefield 3 singleplayer campaign for the M1A2 is a M2 with Transparent Armor Gun Shield (TAGS), while in multiplayer it seems to be using the Norwegian CROWS II RWS (Remote Weapon System).
  • In Battlefield 3, the M1A2 receives "decoration" in the form of spare Jerrycans, rolls of equipment, and other equipment strapped to the turret as the user unlocks more upgrades for the vehicle. This also occurs with the LAV-25, BMP-2, and T-90A.
  • In Battlefield 3, the words "Crunch Time" are written on the main cannon however, some of the letters are scratched out .
  • It's possible to launch a teammate to a very far distance using the Abrams' main cannon. The same can be done with the T-90 as well.
  • The M1A2 appears on Operation 925 although not as a drivable vehicle. It traverses a scripted path on a road outside the map near A Flag.
  • The HUD display is different in campaign and multiplayer.
