….into the 2030s and Beyond

"(Washington, D.C.) Should a mechanized column of heavily armored Russian vehicles launch an aggressive, forward-leaning assault into Eastern Europe 10 years from now, complete with air and artillery support – - just what kinds of specific armored vehicles would best position a US/NATO response?

Such a scenario, however likely, incorporates some of the complexities now informing current Army thinking. How much can current platforms, such as the 1980s-era Abrams tank, be upgraded and maintained such that they can provide the requisite force, protection and firepower to meet such a contingency? -- Both now and 15 years from now? To what extent would the Army's emerging fleet of Next-Generation Combat Vehicles be better equipped to respond?…."

I love the Abrams.

I manned M1IPs and first production M1A1s nearly 30 years ago. She is an excellent tank but man is she getting long on the tooth! It is really coming up time to retire the pig and bring in new blood.
