[edit] Information

In the years after World War II, Soviet tank design improved rapidly, leaving the West far behind. With most military planners still assuming that the plains of Europe were the location most likely to see an outbreak of war, it became increasingly clear that the West, and particularly the United States, needed to develop a radically better tank. The result was the M1 Abrams. BATTLE STATIONS reveals that while the Abrams was faster, more powerful and better protected than any other tank ever made, it was also rushed into duty in an environment starkly different than the one the designers had in mind. But as extensive footage from the Gulf War shows, it was more than up to the task, and the revolutionary weapon completely outclassed its Soviet-made counterparts in the Iraqi desert. Filled with the testimony of the men who served aboard them, M1 ABRAMS--SUPERTANK! is the definitive story of the most sophisticated tank ever made. -- Extended interview of Abrams Commander Tony Steede joined to the film --
