  1. I will copy/ paste my own comment in Reddit: “About the Osorio… In the 80s, the government of Saudi Arabia began an international competition to supply It’s need of 700 modern tanks. Attended this, the M1A1 Abrams, the Challenger 1, the AMX 40 and, of course, the Osorio. Legend has it that Osorio was the winner, but at the end, there would have been US government pressure to make the M1A1 the winner. That’s hard to analyse nowadays but governments always do lobbying and pressures in competitions of this size. It’s part of the game. In fact, the Abrams was a tank already in operation while Osorio was just a prototype. But at least one “legend” is true. After 25 years, Osorio is still superior in some aspects to the tank currently used by the Brazilian Army, the Leopard 1A5BR. This link here addresses truths / myths / hypes about Osorio. But, I’m sorry, I did not have time to translate it; if you have interest plz put it in the Google translator”. https://diemotoren.wordpress.com/2015/08/05/as-verdades-do-osorio/
