The XM1 is a tier 6 Premium Main Battle Tank originating from the United States. It can be purchased from Sophie Wölfli for 3,250 Gold. The XM1 was originally a tier 6 progression vehicle that was replaced by the M1 Abrams in Balance 2.0.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy armor: this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • HESH: can even penetrate armor with large hit angles
  • Gas Turbine : provide a smoother acceleration, compared to an ordinary diesel

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

With good armor, high mobility, and a decent gun, the XM1 is a jack of all trades MBT capable of pushing a flank, brawling, or going hull down effectively. An excellent 0-32 kph acceleration and top speed allow it to maneuver much more rapidly than other tier 6 tanks, and while the 105mm may not be as powerful as the 120mm or 125mm guns of its counterparts, the rate of fire can partially compensate for this.

The XM1 was an early test-bed for the M1 Abrams line. It possesses the first attempts at Chobham mounting throughout the front and a well sloped turret that give it substantial resistance to anti-tank fire.

History[edit | edit source]

The XM1 is a prototype for the M1 Abrams, which would quickly become the ubiquitous American Main Battle Tank. The XM1 had superior armor to the M60 series and a more powerful turbine engine, enabling it to remain highly mobile in spite of its significant mass. Multiple XM1 prototypes were built; this specific version represents a model that was similar to the fully developed M1 Abrams.

Variants[edit | edit source]
