  • Current MBTs vs a Death Star

    What would happen if the original Death Star shot a modern MBT (Abrams, Challenger, T-90) with its main armament? Would the tank be totaled or ok?

    How about an Invincible Class Star Destroyer, would the main blasters penetrate or would it matter?

    Hmmmmmmmmmm. If the Death Star gets of the first shot then the MBT (and the planet) would be screwed but the Death Star is very vulnerable to a shot down the (what is is called? That strange chute that built into it just to give the good guys a chance) hole.

    I'm backing a good guys MBT because of that.

      Now, how would it fare if it were inside the Death Star and driving about?

        Fairly well, despite what Obi-wan said about the accuracyof Stormtrooper blaster fire, we all know in reality they can't hit the broadside of a barn. The tank would never even get hit while several Stormtroopers would fall into large holes due to the Death Star not being designed with the safety of the crew in mind.

            You're comparing apples and oranges.

            Troop of Challenger II vs AT-AT? Superior mobility of the Challengers and the AT-AT's limited field of fire probably means stalemate as the MBT's can't penetrate the advanced polycarbide plates. Unless Luke Skywalker is the gunner on Sword 2 of course. Then its game on.

              Well, if it were the original death star the tank would OBVIOUSLY be fine. I think the latter death star might be able to damage it...at least amobility kill.

                Well the AT-ST, would fair well I think, it could use its speedt o get on top of a Challenger and shoot top down, granted there aren't any Ewoks with slingshots and logs fighting in Her Majesty's Forces...

                      Hmm I wonder what's next, my sarcastic remarks, vs the armour of a modern MBT?

                      Personally I think I have a chance

                          We all know of the Stormtrooper effect. The fact that the Empire force's legendary battle skills and accuracy evaporate as soon as a TV camera is around.

                          So in that case, as you have a CCTV system on hte tank, then its game over for the empire boys.

                          It all kind of reminds me of this.
