The US-made Abrams tanks are named after American military general Creighton Abrams who was known for his leadership during the Vietnam war. After the M1 Abrams was first commissioned in the US Army in 1980, the tanks has proven its success on several battlefields. The M1 Abrams is known for its superior firepower, protection and mobility has made into a weapon of choice for Ukraine. Last week, the US President Joe Biden agreed to send more than 30 M1 Abrams tanks into Ukraine, a decision that he had been reluctant to make for many months now. Biden’s hand was forced in a sense by Germany which decided to send over a dozen Leopard 2 tanks and by Britain which earlier announced that it’ll be sending the challenger 2 tanks.On Crux Decode, Zakka Jacob explains if these tanks will make any difference on the battlefield, their delivery timelines and why Russia has avoided to show any alarm over the move.
