M1A2 Abrams Tank
M1A2 Abrams Tank Factors: The M1A2 Abrams Tank originated in the United States Of America, and was designed by Chrysler Defense. The M1A2 is a Main Battle Tank and begin its service in the 1980, and is currently in service. The Unit cost of a Abrams Tank is estimated at about $6.21 USD, and there are currently 10,000+ units that have been manufactured today. The M1A2 Abrams weighs 60.4 tons, has a Hull length of 26.02 feet, and a width of 12 ft. The Abrams has a crew of 4, the gunner, commander, loader, and driver and has a fuel capicity of 500 US gallons. All in all, the M1A2 Abrams has seen some of the worlds most historic battles such as the Persian Gulf War, the Afghanistan War, to the Iraq War. My Own Story: The model itslef took about 4 whole years to complete, due to money conflicts. Parts wise, it was about $220 worth of lego goodness, much more cheaper then the real tank, but still expensive. The Tank does indeed carry a crew of 4, and the minifigures are as well decaled military soldiers, decals are from Roaglanns customs. Anyway, I know that there are alot of M1A2 Abrams on my Mocpages, the Final version one being the lates one, but consider that as a final version of the Tank concept, ok ;-/. Please Rate and comment in if you may have any questions please ask them in the comments ok.
About this creation

This is the Drivers compartment in the Lego model, the minifigure can fit comfortably in the compartment and as well peak out of a opening hatch on the top cover.



This is the Turret compartment, whereby 2 minifigures fit comfortably in while the turret is attached, and the turret can as well turn 360 degrees to fire at enemies using the element of suprise.



This is the Engine Compartment of the tank, the Engine fits perfectly into the area and the room itself features 2 rear doors and 2 top doors just like on the real tank.



This is the engine from the back side, it features realistic textures and curves just like on the real Jet Engine of the M1A2 Abrams Tank.



This is the Engine from the front side, as you can see, it features realistic textures as well that can be found on the real Jet Engine of the M1A2 Abrams tank.



This shows the suspension that I incorporated into the tank wheels, the process of figuring out the suspension part was sort of tricky, as well with the turret angles, in which was a real challenge in this whole project.
