A project which was dormant for a while. I need to dust it off and finish it.
This is a standard M1A2 Abrams which can be equipped with a mine plow, ERA, ARAT 2, a coaxial mounted M2 Browning and a camonet.
Mine plow and ARAT 2 are visible in picture 1 and 2 respectively.
U.S. tanks and armored vehicles cross the desert near the Kuwaiti border during Operation Desert Storm, Feb. 24, 1991.
On February 24, 1991, after 39 days of a devastating air campaign, a massive coalition ground offensive began and Iraq’s armed forces were rapidly overwhelmed. By the end of the day, the Iraqi army had effectively folded and more than 10,000 Iraqis had been taken prisoner. After less than four days, Kuwait was liberated. A majority of Iraq’s armed forces had either been destroyed or had surrendered or retreated to Iraq.
