"Fury" has raised awareness of Armor and the men who fight these machines of war. It takes a special breed to crawl into the belly of the beast and take the fight to the enemy. We are the United States Army Brotherhood of Tankers. We are the men AND women who fight the Tanks and repair them, Tankers and Tank Mechanics, alike.
Through the years, Tank development has focused equally on crew survivability along with the ability to put steel on target.
Today's armor consists of man made substances which are harder than diamonds, applied in specially developed layering techniques which allow the Tank to absorb the impact. The surfaces are also scientifically angled to deflect an incoming penetrator.
The ammunition compartments are now separated from the crew by blast proof doors and specially designed "blow out" panels, which only release from an internal detonation. The fuel is also separated from the crew compartment.
While the number of Tank casualties in modern warfare has been drastically reduced to a miniscule fraction of what it once was, each Tank and Tanker that has been killed in action, or wounded, is held dear in the hearts of the United States Army Brotherhood of Tankers. We remember them, and their families, as well as assist fundraising efforts for our wounded Brothers to have their homes and vehicles renovated in order to accommodate them. These are our Brothers, and always will be.
Additionally, USABOT locates Tanks in our communities that require restoration. Our Brothers and Sisters volunteer their time to restore these beautiful pieces of our Armor history.
USABOT members are unified in our support of our current tankers. American tankers have and will continue to reduce US casualties in all wars and conflicts in which they are deployed by being the world's most effective and dominate ground force. Because we serve, others in our army may live.
