  • Abrams Tuski question

    I bought this set from Toucan for my Abrams. However, there is no instruction. Toucan rep stated that there was none. I have a rough idea where most are to be installed. I need help on those 4 at the left lower corner. Or if anyone has a link on any tank that has them on, please share! Thank you in advance!

    3 of those in the lower left corner are the cable protection for the sniper's 50 cal machine gun mounted above the main 120mm gun on the tank (in blue). The covers run from behind the dog house to the machine gun mounted on the mantlet. The long rectangle piece is part of the commander's armor (in red). See pic. The piece of cable protection that goes into the front of the square box is designed to slide in and out as the barrel raises and lowers.

      Oooh! So cool! Thank you for the picture. I do appreciate you very much. If you happen to have other pictures from other angles of this tank, can you kindly post them? I just want to ensure I install them correctly.

      Oh! I forgot about the piece in the orange outline. What do I do with it :-) ?

        Trade it to me!

        That’s a standard Mseries large towbar for big trucks and tanks. They are vary rarely left on vehicles because they go with the towing vehicle but in this kit they have you pin it to the front two lift/ tow lugs

          If you need that tow bar, I will bring it to the next event.

            I have this kit plus the Trophy APS by DKLM on my HL Abrams. It makes the tank pretty heavy and a lot wider. It really changes the feel of the tank you will like once it's on and painted.

              If you don't mind, can you bring your tank the next time you battle with us in LA? I would like to have a closer look before I put these on my Abrams.

                The US started equipping a lot of vehicles with tow bars while in Iraq and Afghanistan as the availability of recovery vehicles was limited. Having the tow bar already connected to one of the two mounts the bar can be deployed quickly to tow under fire or with the threat of IEDs. I even saw some MRAPs in country that had the tow bar connected to both tow point on the front of the vehicle with the bar sitting vertically in the air. They were driving with it like that and using a set of tow straps to hold it that way. That way they could deploy the bar in a couple of seconds by cutting the tow straps.

                  It's not a HL I use for battling it just a driver. I will trying to remember to bring it but I will most likely not be at an LA battle unit January.
