    I would select the CR2 in its latest uparmoured form. It has excellent upgradeability which will see it in service for decades to come. I wish Canada had bought them.

    Has to be the Challenger 2 at present. Basically because of it's battlefield survivibility and overall fighting ability. Far surpasses the M1 Abrahms i'm afraid, only 2 x losses in Iraq, one due to blue on blue (2x fatalities) the second due to IED when a piece of frontal armour was not re-attached after the vehicle had been towed due to mechanical failure (driver lost both legs). Unfortunately the Abrahms was beset by knockouts form IED's and RPG hits. Leopard, Leclerc and other MBT's cannot be included as they have seen little or no battlefield action.

    But isn't this also to do with the fact that A) the US had many more Abrams in country than the UK had Challengers (more chance of being exposed to danger) and B) that the americans were for the first couple of months and years after the invasion much more exposed to violence with the restive sunnie militants/Baathist/A-Q lot?

    Not to say that I doubt the qualities of the challenger II or anything like that (as a proud brit it got my vote), it's track record is certainly outstanding Very Happy

    Challenger 2, because when you cut through all of the technical stuff that makes a difference, it looks a hell of a lot better than all of the other tanks Smile
