VIDEO: M1A1 Abrams Tanks In Iraq
This video shows M1A1 Abrams tanks destroyed and disabled in Iraq. The first half is a mix of insurgent videos and photographs from the U.S. military, individuals, and the media showing tanks being blown up, mostly by roadside bombs, but later perhaps by Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs) or newer versions of the RPG. Footage from militant groups like Ansar al-Sunnah and the Jihad and Liberation Front can be seen. Half way through the images switch to tanks that have simply been disabled by getting stuck in mud, falling off bridges and elevated roads, etc.
