M1A2 Abrams 1.2

Changelog 1.2:
-antennas now wiggle according to vehicle's momentum (thanks to FoxtrotDelta)
-tracks now adapt to the terrain and aren't static anymore (thanks to Oleg for giving me hints)
-glass doesn't shine very bright anymore
-pivot of turret rotation fixed
-cannon mantle moved backwards
-custom specular maps for body and turret

Changelog 1.1:
-coaxial MG added
-removed .50 cal+protection on commander seat (left side)
-added .50 cal+different protection (bulletproof glass windows inside protection) to the loader seat (right side)

Screenshots 1-6 show the new version with updated turret, the rest show the former version.

Here we have the current US main battle tank to replace that german Leopard 2-inspired GTA V Rhino. Includes two seperate texture files with either woodland or flat desert camo.
The tank comes with the "tank urban survival kit (TUSK)" including reactive armor and enhanced gunner protection. To also make it look more combat ready, I have added several bags to the turret (can be removed via trainer->vehicle components menu).
Driver compartment and gunner interior are modelled and included. You can't enter them physically, but it's still nice to have. Passenger seat is located in the left (opened) hatch on the turret (second pic). Multiple parts including panels, MG, bags can break off when the Abrams explodes.
All LODs are included, custom collision has been made and the tracks, wheels, lights are all working. (At some times the tracks are a little over the ground in the rear when breaking, but it's barely noticeable).

Before you ask: I have tried to:

-make the MG a secondary seat gunner placement. ->game crash

I may figure something out in the future, but right now, only the main cannon can be used.

Original model converted from Call of Duty: Ghosts.

Full credits in the Read Me file.

Like I have said before, I'm really eager to release more aircraft (military/civillian), helicopters and military vehicles. If you like my work and want to see more, please show your support donating. It helps me affording the things I need to continue modding (ZM3, model files, etc)

And thanks alot for the support I have recieved already :)

(And you could keep up with my YT channel to see WIP videos of upcoming mods)

    @bigmo69200w Saw your post just now and I am currently updating the model with swaying antennas and I will try to implement/fix what you said :) The model itself is currently a mashup of BF4, CoD: Ghosts and scratchmade parts. Unless you're talking about user made models, the ArmA Abrams has way worse quality.
    What I don't think I can implement is the reticle and tracer coming out, that would probably need a script... Or do you mean an Abrams reticle instead of the default Rhino one on the HUD? I'm sure there was a mod like this which I could look up if that's what you're looking for.

    Suggestions:1:Make all your models Resparyable
    2:Make a M60A3 Patton (Original and Raytheon) model to replace the Rhino Tank
