I recently found an interesting experimental variant of the Abrams while poking around the web. If there is already a thread about this, I apologize, but I included some other things too.
So, the thing is called the Abrams CATTB (Component Advanced Technology Testbed). It apparently was made in the 80's, with a new engine, (I think it's a diesel) a modified hull, and most noticeably, a larger, more heavily armored turret mounting a 140 mm smoothbore gun, complete with an automatic loader!
Here's your pictures:
Anyway, feel free to discuss this beast!
Oh yes, almost forgot...
