Tank structure physic

Postby Blaster » Fri Jul 28, 2017 11:05 am

Hello everybody,
Long ago i have played a multiplayer game in which i drove a tank and had to destroy other tanks.
I noticed that if a tank went up to another tank, then the second one would explode. I bet in real life this is not true at all, so a question came up to me: how much weight can a tank like the M1A2 abrahams support before being crushed until it becomes 10 cm tall?
Thanks to everybody who answer my weird question!
