One area where the AbramsX may have an edge on its Russian counterpart, if it is ever produced, is its hybrid engine. “That is, it will feature electric propulsion, and be powered by a diesel engine – with a principle of operation similar to that of hybrid cars. They plan to halve fuel consumption – this is quite a significant advantage,” Kornev stressed, explaining that a hybrid engine means lower mass, reduced noise levels, and possibly increased acceleration characteristics, which could prove critical on the battlefield.
