Pouring $6 bn into tank factory, Trump says the M1 Abrams is ‘best in the world.’ Is it really?

向坦克工廠投入60億美元后,特朗普表示M1艾布拉姆斯是“世界上最好的坦克”。這是真的嗎?

US President Donald Trump pledged a hefty sum of $6 billion to upgrade America’s M1 Abrams tanks, lauding them as the best tanks ever built. The statement has more PR value than truth to it, military experts have told RT.

美國總統唐納德·特朗普(Donald Trump)承諾投入60億美元升級美國M1“艾布拉姆斯”坦克,并稱贊其為有史以來最好的坦克。軍事專家向《今日俄羅斯》表示,這一聲明的公關價值大于其真實性。

“America does not need conflict. But if conflict comes, and you know the story – you’ve got to be strong if conflict comes – we will dominate the battlefield, and we will win, win, win. We’re now set up to win, win, win,” Trump said on Wednesday, as he appeared at the Lima Army Tank plant in Ohio.

“美國不需要沖突。但如果沖突來了,你知道這個故事——如果沖突來了,你必須堅強——我們將主宰戰場,我們將贏,贏,贏。”特朗普周三出現在俄亥俄州利馬陸軍坦克工廠時說。



“They have to advertise American weaponry. Trump is making such advertising, yet it’s a big question if it really corresponds with the reality,” Litovkin told RT.

“他們必須宣傳美國的武器。特朗普在做這樣的廣告,但它是否真的符合現實是個大問題。”

Modern war machines, produced in Russia and China, surpass the iconic US tank in many respects, military expert Alexey Leonkov told Vzglyad newspaper.

軍事專家阿列克謝·列昂科夫(Alexey Leonkov)告訴《觀點報》,俄羅斯和中國生產的現代戰爭機器在很多方面都超過了美國標志性的坦克。

“The latest [Chinese] Type 99 model is quite a decent tank with an automatic loader,” Leonkov said. “The top-notch M1 Abrams lacks an automatic loader. Its ‘loader mechanism’ is a serviceman. The rate of fire, the aim precision depends on how fast this soldier operates. And a loss of him makes the task hardly doable altogether.”

“(中國)最新的99型坦克相當不錯,配有自動炮彈裝填器,”列昂科夫說,“一流的M1‘艾布拉姆斯’缺乏一個自動裝填器。它的“炮彈裝填”全靠一名士兵。射速,瞄準精度取決于這名士兵的行動速度。失去了他,這項任務幾乎無法完成。”

Abrams is a decent tank, but it belongs to the past century.

“艾布拉姆斯”是一輛不錯的坦克,但它屬于上個世紀。



“If we recall how these tanks were fighting for Saudi Arabia against the flip-flop-clad Houthis – the latter have shown in Yemen that Abrams can be penetrated from various sides and burns very well. Therefore the experts simply cannot call the M1 Abrams a flawless tank.”

“如果我們回想一下這些坦克是如何為沙特阿拉伯對抗穿人字拖的胡塞武裝的,胡塞武裝在也門已經表明,艾布拉姆斯可以從各個方面滲透進去,而且燃燒得很好。因此,專家們不能簡單地說M1艾布拉姆斯是一輛完美無瑕的坦克。”
