We use Sand, Oil & Blood (a Gulf War game) as the basis for modern microarmor, but have to add things like troop morale that is bit higher than the Iraqis (as that is the only "red force" they provide for). While the mechanics of this game seem accurate enough, it plays out well...and yes, a Challenger or M1A1 is nearly undefeatable head on...as it should be ;)
