It is far from being the worst MBT ever designed. Yet, I think it is also far from being the perfect jewel of OPness the American Army PR/Hollywood want to make it pass for.
It is a very good all-around tank, without real drawbacks, but not the "deadliest killing machine ever" you often see it labeled abroad the Atlantic.
