    What would be more effective in ww2
    1000 Abrams or 5000 Bradleys?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Honestly, I'd go with the Bradleys. TOWs would knock out any tank of that era and Autocannons would be effective against aircraft, infantry, bunkers, and even some tanks.

    • 1 month ago

      Probably the Bradleys, honestly. Eventually you hit diminishing returns with firepower and I doubt the Bradley has much difficulty penning anything the Axis can bring to bear. The greater versatility of the autocannon and the Bradley's superior mobility wind up being pretty nice. Plus being able to saturate 5x the operational area seems like it would be a big deal strategically.

      Bradleys. The Sherman already fills the niche of slinging big shell at target and synergizes well with the organic infantry that Brads would provide. You would probably see weird Sherman/Bradley hybrids crop up where knocked out or otherwise unrecoverable Bradleys have their autocannons and TOWs removed and mated to Shermans.

          Something nostalgic yet charming of some 3rd world countries rocking WW2 equipment but budget restrictions and government beuraracy just force them to upgrade old shit over and over just modifying old Chassis from long obsolete armor.

          I mean russia does it with the T-55 and T-72. Not very sucessful but there're doing there best.

      The Bradleys hands down. The 25mm APFSDS is going to sail through most WWII armor and TOWs will eviscerate literally any vehicle you could run into from any nation even if it's the literal last second of the war. It's also fast and capable of safely transporting infantry to the fight. 5,000 Bradleys means you have the capacity to carry 30,000 troops (6 per IFV) into battle without a single man riding on top. The biggest thing is it's electronics and stabilization would allow it to absolutely frick anything it runs into from relatively obscenely far out while moving at night.

      If you REALLY want to make the war a cakewalk replace 1k of the Bradleys with M6 Linebackers. 4k FIM-92Bs would end any hopes of the enemy having accurate CAS available.

      The war really would be over before Christmas. Also, the Soviets never would've gotten their hands on east Germany.

          Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure one of the major draws to the Abrams turbine powerplant is that it'll run on pretty much any vaguely flammable liquid.

          The army really likes the idea of just being able to run whatever the frick fuel you could get...it's how you wind up with shit like the Hercules multi fuel in M35s.

          Turbines are pretty fuel tolerant and will run on just about anything that produces enough heat when it burns. And can be pumped through the injectors, I guess.

          This apparently was an issue for post-ww2 US rocket industry because JP-1 was wildly inconsistent and led to dangerous rockets when you used it for non-cryogenic liquid fuel rockets.

        LMAO, you could fuel up an Abrams with freakin' alcohol from the local distillery and it'd probably still work. That thing is rated to run on kerosene, gasoline, diesel and even marine diesel without issue.

        What you're talking of is JP-8, which is a kerosene-based fuel that was introduced in an attempt to standardize on one unified fuel type for all NATO-standard jet or diesel engine types in existence, to simplify logistics.

      replacing 1000 M4s with 1000 M1A2s would probably have a much bigger impact on the battlefield than replacing 5000 half-tracks with 5000 bradleys

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        The M1A2 would end up being such ridiculous overkill it'd be wasted. That Panther is still going to be just as dead if a Bradley introduces a few M919s to it and there's literally no vehicle on land, sea, or air at any point in the war that will stop a TOW from penetrating when it hits. Are you really going to turn down an additional 4k vehicles that are still every bit as cheaty?

        If you'd really put Bradleys doing half track things instead of Sherman and Hellcat things but now with guaranteed infantry support you've just made it clear you have no business commanding anything.

      There is a reason the Stug was the main tank killer of ww2.
      Not any of the impressive tanks, the stug. A vehicle that didn't even have a turret and could only shoot in front of itself.
      There was a lot of them, they had a gun powerful enough, and they were deployed using tactics to maximize thier effectiveness against better vehicles.

      The Bradleys. The auto-cannon can destroy any tank in the world at the time, the guided missiles for long range bunker busting and it carries an infantry squad.

      The Abrams is wildly overkill for anti-tank work in WWII, it's only value would be bunker busting with HEAT rounds.

        I'm not entirely sold on a 25mm autocannon penetrating some of the later tanks from the front. Then again, M2s do have TOW missiles so I'm just splitting hairs.

          The 25mm M919 APFSDS can apparently pen up to 100mm RHA. You can sling them at up to 500 rounds per minute. It wouldn't even be close to fair.
