    well for sheer firepower no, but apprently their armor wouldn't be good by todays standards also the P-1000 would have shitty mobility so a modern MBT would more than likely be the winner

    Without modern fire control I dont think the P1000 would actually be able to hit a modern MBT with its main guns- it would probably stand a higher chace of doing serious damage with its 20mm auto cannons. With very heavy armour plating, 120mm guns firing even the latest penetrator shells would have a tough time damaging it, but for a modern MBT with computerized fire control, there would be no issue with hitting something that large, so my money would be on the modern MBT (or multiple MBTs).


    Its still a very interesting thought though, as the P1000 is a completely different design philosophy to that which led to the MBT today. If tanks like the P1000 had caught on and been successful, can you imagine what tanks might be like today? Smile
