Baby Yoda is now also a new Army tank

The Child , generally called Baby Yoda or Baby Yoda by fans and the media, is a fictional character from Disney’s Star Wars television series + The Mandalorian . He has quickly become one of the favorite characters in the saga, however the success caught Disney by surprise and, to this day, there is not much original merchandising available for it. That is why many have created their own. Being even a source of inspiration when naming a tank .

Baby Yoda is one of the tanks that is part of an entire division of combat troops and military equipment that have been sent across the Atlantic to demonstrate that the United States Army is capable of rapidly moving reinforcements to its allies from the NATO.

The Baby Yoda tank belongs to the 3rd Infantry Division out of Fort Stewart , Georgia. The so-called Roca del Marne Division participates in the Defender Europe 2020 exercise, a massive transfer of combat troops from the US Army: around 16,000 soldiers, 300 tanks and 300 infantry fighting vehicles, loaded onto ships from the United States to be dispatched to the German port of Bremerhaven. Thereafter, US Army forces are deployed across the European continent and then participate in several annual local exercises.


The Baby Yoda is an M1A2 Abrams tank belonging to the 3rd Division, and is the main armored medium of the United States Army, the United States Marine Corps, and the armies of Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Australia. With a mass of about 68 tons , it is one of the heaviest tanks in service today.

Between 1986 and 1992, some 5,000 M1A1 Abrams tanks were produced, but the units remained unused in combat until the 1991 Gulf War, in Operation Desert Storm.

It is named after General Creighton Abrams , commander-in-chief of American troops in Vietnam from 1968 to 1972, and chief of staff of the United States Army from 1972 to 1974.

The reason for its name is that Army tank units are given popular or informal names and these nicknames are often painted on their 120mm M256 guns. Other tanks heading to Europe, for example, have been dubbed Django , Body Count, and Stallion .

Among its features, the Baby Yoda , as well as the rest of the Abrams models, can be equipped with the Saab Barracuda camouflage system , which provides concealment against the detection of visual, infrared, thermal infrared and broadband radar. In addition, it is equipped with a computerized ballistic fire control system that makes use of the data collected by various sources, such as thermal sights or the gunner’s main sight, and processes them to show a ballistic solution: angle, type of ammunition. and distance to the target.

Without a doubt, the Baby Yoda is a tank with imposing characteristics, almost as many as those displayed by its counterpart in the galactic saga.
