    Plain Nasty

    U.S.iconA's new round for the M1A2 puts a whole new category of lethality into the main gun of the tanks capability.
    I for one would not want to be anywhere near this thing if I was the bad guy.

    One would hope that none were "left" in Afghanistan?

    I was wondering if the cost of each AMP equals the combined cost of all the others?

    I could not find any $'s/unit cost for the round but it would be decidedly cheaper than say a copperhead round, I stumbled cross this read (link below) and I don't think they would have sent any across the pond as they were only really introduced for field use this year, whilst the U.S was fully committed to pulling out.
    It makes sense in a tanks load out to have a more mission capable round replace others doing a similar job, thus allowing a greater more sustained combat effectiveness it appears that the depleted uranium kinetic penetrator rounds are still there but the AMP deleted all the others.

    Changes the tank to a fire support base. Such a multi purpose tank may end up with no purpose left against other single purpose tanks
