M-1 Abrams Battle Tank is a 1989 tank simulation game for computers by Dynamix and Electronic Arts ported to the Sega Mega Drive by Realtime Games Software and Sega. It was released alongside 688 Attack Sub in the extremely short-lived "Simulator Series" in 1991. The game uses an enhanced version of the Motorola 68000 engine used in Realtime Games Software video game Carrier Command[2].

Like, 688 Attack Sub, M-1 Abrams Battle Tank was licensed by Sega of America in 1990, shortly before EA began publishing Sega games for themselves.
