I noticed in an earlier thread (which I can’t find now) that WaW-85 differed from NaW in heavy armor now being subject to reduction through HE barrages (essentially). I also saw some comments siting field fire studies that indicated various damage to tanks that have undergone a representative attack. It sounded pretty convincing – particularly given the Soviet proclivities to over-do it. Still not totally convinced, I asked my former office mate, an armor officer in Germany at about that time and previously involved in new tank development, about vulnerability, and he was dubious. Short of a direct hit from a large caliber shell, he felt M1s could take a licking and keep on ticking. He specifically noted their ability to operate without road wheels, regular training in hand-signals, super-tough tracks and barrels, internal hydraulics, and back-up sighting systems. I’m sure the designers must have carefully considered these issues, but if any further testimony is desired, let me know. I have no clue, especially since I have yet to play this new series, but John would.
