I'll believe it when I see more than a CAD drawing from them. And even then, more than just a prototype.

Remember the MAUS and E-100?


Too bad... I really like to have that Leopard.

We would be better off if HL where to offer either one of these models and since they just did the 2A6 i dont think youll see an A4. So the Abrams would be awesome to have from them. i'm sure they could do a decent enough job but the electronics are always the biggest problem with modern tanks and especially with the turbine in the Abrams.

I find that this sounds pretty decent. Its apparently a small MP3 player playing a repeating track of the M1's turbine sound onto a set of speakers.

I'll be walking SIME in 1-1/2 weeks & will let you folks know if this is soon-to-be reality or just another pipe dream.
