    Video Summary:
    Come see how a tank works! In this video we're going to look specifically at the American M1A2 Abrams tank. The tank weighs 68 US Tons and can go up to 42 miles per hour. Parts of the tank include the caterpillar tracks, the wheels, the hull, and the turret. The caterpillar tracks are used to displace the weight of the tank allowing it cross rough terrain. The tank holds a crew of 4 - the driver, gunner, commander and the loader. The driver is up front and the other 3 are in the turret. The engine is in the back of the tank, it's an AGT-1500 which is powered by jet fuel. The main gun fires shells at about 3500mph. It can hit a target 2 miles away. There are a few countries besides the USA that use variants of the M1 Abrams tank. M1A2 Abrams tank continues to be the main battle tank for the United States military.
    I apologize for not including metric units in the video. I normally include both metric and imperial but this video I got lazy. (and yes, even as an American I agree our system is pretty wonky😫)
    I made a mistake with the smoke grenade launchers in the video. They don't emit smoke directly - they shoot out grenades around the tank and then those grenades emit smoke.
    For those of you that noticed the anime paint job on the helicopter in War Thunder - yes this is a real thing. Do a google search for "Kisarazu Sisters"

    Some of the 3D models you see in this video were purchased from TurboSquid (links below).
    The models were then modified for use in this video.
    I did not end up using the tank 3d model that War Thunder sent me - it was easier to purchase a model specifically made for blender.

Your demonstration of the loader loading is incorrect .. You do not rotate your body .It's a waste of time .You face the gunner and commander .Operate the door switch with the knee .As the door is opening .You release the round from the rack .Catch it in left hand flip onto breach block .Punch round into place with fist .To keep fingers from getting cut off as breach block slams shut .Arm main gun . Yell up .Get the hell out of the way of recoil .

I am an Army veteran (3rd Armored Cavalry) with experience with both the M1A1 and M1A2. I will provide quality control if necessary: @2:30 Top speed on flat, solid ground. Slower over rough terrain, but still capable of rapid pace (well over 30mph) @2:33 Fuel is distributed between 4 tanks: 2 in the rear and 2 in the front. Fuel is standard JP8 petroleum, similar to diesel. M1 can also run on other fuel types in distress. @2:45 .6 mpg while driving, it has been suggested (not verified) that it takes 2 gallons to start the engine. For tanks not equipped with an EAPU (External Auxiliary Power Unit, a.k.a. generator) The engine is often left running to keep vital onboard systems operating even while sitting for extended periods- and in theory, to conserve fuel required by frequent restarts. @3:30 There are 7 PAIRS of roadwheels contacting the ground on either side (the narrator is not specific, but the animation did show them). @3:56 The sensation of riding a tank over rough terrain can be described as being in a boat on choppy water: It "floats" over all but the most extreme obstacles. @4:07 I have experienced extreme inclines (up and down) that I would have only attempted with a modified 4x4 vehicle, bridged trenches and never felt them, crossed through mud that would have swamped any other imaginable vehicle, and travelled at speed across rough terrain at top speed that, if attempted in my jeep, would have jarred my teeth loose and broken suspension parts. @5:40 The "Power Pack", or engine, is modular and designed to be quickly, easily and regularly removed to ease maintenance. It can be prepped for removal by the crew and be out on the ground behind the tank within 20 minutes. It can be replaced just as efficiently. I have done this many times. @6:24 "Make sure to stay clear when the engine is on"- There is a "jet wash" at the rear of the tank while it is running that gets more intense under power. At idle it is minor and is a boon during cold, snowy weather (look for groups of soldiers gathered behind idling tanks in the winter enjoying the heat.). ( "Crank up my $6 million space heater." is a common command from tank commanders during the winter.) @6:27 The phone is for infantry (using the tank as cover, etc.) so that they may coordinate movement and safety with the tank crew who are not able to see them. @7:55 In addition to the loader's MG, the commander's hatch is typically equipped with a .50Cal MG (unknown why this is not mentioned or represented.) @7:58 Smoke Grenade Launchers: The animation is inaccurate- smoke grenades are actually launched from the chambers and disbursed around the area to provide wider visual coverage. Not mentioned is that the tank is also equipped with a smoke generator that sprays fuel into the hot exhaust in order to create a large cloud that can be backed into or allowed to drift in a beneficial direction. @10:13 The driver's compartment is often referred to as "the coffin". It is actually very comfortable and drivers are known to doze off during periods of inactivity. - The only thing not mentioned that I need to add is what makes the M1A2 particularly different from the M1A1 is the addition of the CITV (there are other improvements, but this is by far the most significant): The CITV is the Commanders Independent Thermal Viewer: It is the cylindrical protrusion on top of the turret just in front of the loader's hatch. This allows the tank commander to scan the battlefield and acquire targets independently of the gunner or the orientation of the main gun. This provides two sets of eyes independently scanning for targets and gives much more rapid target acquisition before and after firing; enabling immediate referencing of an identified target after another has been destroyed.

Oh, it can run faster than that. They just limit its speed for safety. It’s top speed is “classified” but the damn thing can drive so fast that it throws its tracks off.

I read somewhere that the tank can even spew smoke out the exhaust by injecting fuel downstream of the turbine’s combustion chamber, resulting in partially burnt fuel, making lots of smoke, but it’s horribly inefficient.

How much is 32ft in non-retarded units? Honestly, it's a excellent video! Excellent explanation, but I have to suggest to also include IS (international standards) measurement, this way it's less confusing. I know, i could search for a converter, but so could you, a lot of viewers would appreciate, thanks!

The starter/generator on a M1 is pretty cool. Give it power and it acts like a starter to start the engine. One its running it acts like a generator. I do know their top speed is faster than advertised. I was driving a HMMWV flat out so about 70/75 ish mph. A M1 passed me like I was standing still. Must have been doing at least 90 mph. Watched it throw a track pad about 50ft in the air. Glad it didn't hit me.
