Episode Summary

At Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, Richard Hammond tests his skills to see if he has what it takes to be a member of a top tank crew, as he learns to drive the US Army's MIA2 Abrams Tank. The tank "Debel," meaning to conquer in war, lives up to its fighter name as a leading force in ground-armored combat. Richard's challenge is not only to drive the 68.7 ton machine, but to master all four positions within the tank: Driver, Commander, Gunner and Loader. Before he can jump in, he has to complete the Army's extensive training program including hours of simulator training and of course, physical fitness training.moreless
