I'm sure this has been dragged up before but not in the context I am referring to. I believe the last time this was brought up it was in regards to the current battles we are fighting and if they are suitable for that. Now, what I'm wondering is, with the advances in anti-armour weapons these days are these 60 tonne beasts outdated? Helicopters can destroy them, jets can take them out, of course other tanks can, and the humble infantry man armed with a Javelin can take them out. Is it ever going to be worth it in the future having a multimillion pound vehicle that can be removed from the battlefield by something that costs a fraction of itself?
