true. I don't think any of those tanks on the list have been tested in large scale battle.

The abrams has seen the most out of them, and then probably the Challenger

but neither of them has met their equals. I mean abrahms has only met some obsolete tanks.

Exactly, no modern tank has been battle tested, although in Desert Storm like 7 abrahms took out like 100 Iraqi tanks, obsolete or not, thats impressive

not really. they had better training and equipment. And I assume that had a long distance between those tank groups. Witttmans achievement an Villes-Bocage is impressive.

It was a fairly close distance fight, the abrahms were the front scout of the rest of the tank division, the actually rolled into the middle of the iraqis and didnt notice

Sounds like Wittmanns achievement. but he did it alone. With a single Tiger he stooped a british armor column.

but they had dozens of tanks. and they had inantry support. and they were only 10 or so meters away from Wittmann. they should have been able to kill him.
