    These two tanks never met in combat. What would the outcome be on the planes of eastern Germany.

    One on one i'd say Chieftan, its gun is stabilised and it has the finest of crews! On the other hand, if the Russian tank divisions had poured over the boarder i don't think we would have had nearly enough to stop them.

    in this case it depends on the model and scenario Against a T-72A,B,M,or S i would say the Chiefton but if it was the T-72BM (same thing as a T-90 basically) i would go with that. Also 1 Chiefton vs hundreds of T-72s aren't going to stand a chance

    Yes i agree if the ruskies did roll over the boarder we would of been a lil screwed !. I think we should go for 1 vS 1 and disregard crews. Major benefits the chieftain had firing on the move and a very accurate rifles gun static. anyone care to comment for the T72?

    I may be wrong but didn't these two tanks meet in combat during the Iran Iraq War, where IRIAA Chieftains took on Saddams's T72s (not Asad Babil, but apparently exported T72s)? However, there's so much haze surrounding the Iran Iraq War that I think I may be wrong.

    In either case, I think Chieftain would have had the advantage. It's gun was certainly more accurate and it was definitely better protected. The much higher rate of fire, lower profile, and speed of the T72 would have made it a threat but I think Chieftain would have had better quality armor and definitely fired better quality ammunition then the T72 did, which I think would have gave it an edge.

    Yes the Cheiftain did go up against the T-72 in the war, how ever it was the inferior export model, the T-72M, where as were talking about the Russian T-72 Laughing

    My source (you know whom I talking about) said the cheiftains that were taken out was mostly by air attack or ATM's. He said the Chieftain faired well against the 125mm cannon. He Also said Iran used various Mk's.
