Determining and deciding on the quality of a battle tank is quite a task.  There are many technical parameters related to the overall operating efficiency of such heavy armored vehicles.

Beer on this tank barrel is just for illustrative purposes, to show how well stabilization systems work. Still image from the YouTube video.
