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.

Quoting Jaccamo Hartshorne The changes that I thought you could do to it are: The side armour plate shouldn't cover the raised part of the engine and the raised parts that go along side the turret could do with being a bit longer. The main gun and the machine gun should be at the same hight and both in the middle, I also think the periscope of the driver should be change and also the interior of the turret. But the drivers cab and the engine are just awsome. :)
L take that into deep consideration thnx for the info...for the profile image, you have to do it simply by going to your mocpage homepage, on the side there should be some option buttons, simply click on the one that says add a buddy icon, and you just pick the picture you want from your computer, and there you have it.

Quoting Jaccamo Hartshorne Lol, when you say that it costs about 6.21 dollars, do you mean 6.21 million dollars?I think their are a few changes that you could do to the tank though, you can download mine for LDD, just look on my profile for it. I like the drivers cab, did you copy it from a photo? I have tried to find a good photo of it, but havn't found one. If you did copy it from a photo then could you send me it? Thanks.
Dang, thats a huge typo on my behalf right there lol, L need to recheck the information again and edit that. When you say changes, what are the little changes that could be made? I would like to know so that I can possibly make them.
