Gulf War Tank Power: The M1A1 Abrams Vs T-72 | Battlezone | War Stories

The M1A1 Abrams had advantages in nearly every category over is Iraqi opponent the T-72. It had thicker armour and proved virtually indestructible, with few M1A1’s being hit and not fatalities when they were. And this is all before the 120mm gun and the advanced fire control and system.

In less than 100 hours a substantial portion of the fourth largest army in the world was defeated and Kuwait was liberated. A war waged in trackless desert, this is the story of how Operation Desert Storm was won, and the weapons and tactics that make it all possible.
