This do-it-yourself metal M1 Abrams Tank model is etched with fine detail. The Abrams M1 Is an American third-generation main battle tank that entered service in 1980. It features a powerful turbine engine, sophisticated composite armor, and separate ammunition storage in a blow-out compartment for crew safety. Weighing nearly 62 metric tons, it is one of the heaviest battle tanks in service. Introduced with the U.S. Army in 1980, the Abrams M1 has since seen deployment ranging from the Iraq Wars through the Russo-Ukranian War. Fun and satisfying to assemble, the model parts are made from a pair of completely flat laser-etched steel sheets.
In use since 1980, the M1 Abrams tank and its updated models serve as the main battle tank of the United States Army. It is a full-tracked, low-profile, land combat assault weapon that allows expeditionary warfighters to dominate their adversaries with the help of the tank's firepower, unparalleled survivability, and audacious maneuver. It was first used in combat in the Persian Gulf War and has seen combat in both the War in Afghanistan and Iraq War. The export version is used by the armies of Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Australia, and Iraq.
