Howdy Shane, you need to stop this exercise in mental self-fornication and build a model. Pick a tank from the A-stan images you have and put together the parts you need and build it. If you wait to have immaculate references you will never get anything built. I am speaking from expeirence here. Even in this instant information age some new detail will come to light as soon as you finish applying the flat coat(cote?). So get that PSM or Voyager upgrade, use the parts you see in the picture of your selected subject and turn to! Then paint and mark it per the photo, done deal. And just so you know when A Co relieved D Co in August the Marine tanks over in the 'Stan' started taking on a different look. So the longer you wait the more muddled the choices.
As far as the Abrams it will be PIPed(Product Improvement Program)or SLEPed (Service Life Extension Program)to 2020 and beyond. Have you seen the M1A1 with the electro-magnetic Rail Gun yet? It is on the drawing board. I am going to build mine based on a Marine tank of the 31st MEU that blitzed through an Iranian Guards unit during the refinery wars in Saudi Arabia circa 2035.
Outta here, Mike sends . . .
