Messenger of Mordovia He published photographs that captured the hit in the МХNUMXА1М Abrams tank of a guided missile fired by IG fighters near Mosul.


Iraqi government forces have lost the next M1A1M Abrams near Mosul


Having walked behind the rear of an Iraqi tank, militants fired an anti-tank missile at it. “ATGM got into the stern of the combat vehicle, in the tower, where the shells are stored. After a powerful explosion, details rose into the air tankApparently, the so-called tower kick-off panels, ”the publication says.





After a moment, intense burning began, the flame rose to a height of more than 10 meters.



After such damage, the tank is unlikely to be taken to recover. "As for the fate of the crew, the Americans have repeatedly stated that, thanks to the complete isolation of the ammunition, tankers have a great chance to survive even in such a seemingly critical situation," the newspaper notes.



However, there is one "but" - if the curtains separating the crew from the ammunition, were opened, the tankers, most likely, were killed. No information on this yet.

      Mattress-striped partners instead of their crews send cheap cannon fodder.

      It's a shame for the Iraqis.

      But, as you see, the training of mattress-striped crews also does not shine - in a similar situation, the result of the attack will be one to one.

      The weakest spot was in the tank, between the seat and the control levers, because leaving the tank without cover in open space is a clinic.

    When the old, and even export modifications of the t-72 burned in Iraq during the first war, some individuals immoderately burnt at Abrams.
    The situation is mirrored, not the most recent modifications of the Abrams under the control of the same Iraqis are burning cheerfully and provocatively, the more or less fresh T-90 keeps ATGMs.
    Although arguing all right, it's still Merkava's best tank, and ATGM Spike lol

      Кризис "культа абрамса" начался даже не с Ирака, а с Йеменского "соло на "Фаготе", когда внезапно выяснилось, что даже старый советский ПТРК в грамотных руках жгёт "абрама" в лоб.

          вряд ли летально, КАЗ опасен боевому охранению, абез боевого охранения танк -это гроб, горячий гроб, по сему танк обязан быть под ДЗ, к примеру , Т-90 от ТОУ получил прямое попадание и...., и дальше поехал "лечится" а после выполнять долг перед второй родиной, Т-72 в чеченскую,выполнил задачу получив 24 попадания и своим ходом на базу, вот это красит танк.

    There is one highlight here, without NATO information support (and all of their equipment is integrated into the combined-arms command system by default) the abrams are blind like moles. For any tank without dynamic protection, the strike is fatal. And it does not matter when and by whom it was made.

    Нет, ребята-демократы, меня учили что любая техника, даже самая пресамая, всегда может быть уничтожена. Отсюда и поговорочка "техника в руках дикаря-груда металла". И простят меня танкисты, но меня учили уничтожать любые танки, и не только иностранные. До сих пор помню все уязвимые места для стрельбы по ним и снарядами, и ПТУРами, и РПГ. Многие ли знают, что противотанковые снаряды (мины) можно опускать на парашютах сверху на башенку на расстоянии от орудия свыше 10 км при наличии корректировщика? А самое опасное для нас была обыкновенная пехота прикрывающая машину. Без охранения танк становился " картонной" мишенью. А нука, танкисты, напомните мне величины мёртвых зон. Особенно тыловые. А тут в задницу не хилым ПТУРом... Так что же вы все хотите от бедного Абрамса?

    Excellent on fire! I would endlessly admire how abrams burn. And the corrupt Iraqis who surrendered their country to the Yankees for 30 pieces of silver, I absolutely do not mind. If you wanted democracy, get it ... and sign it with your blood and your loved ones. Still, we would have to bring all our home-grown liberals to Iraq so that they feel in their own skin what kind of American democracy they are so hungry for. By the way, didn’t you notice that the bandits didn’t call the allu this time?

    Pay attention to the video, why after a hit no one screams at Alah Akbar, very unusual and immediately catches the eye.

    You can probably look at 3 things endlessly: how the American flags are lowered (torn down), how the Americans look for diapers and how Abrams burns ... laughing

    And it seemed to me that in the last seconds of shooting, when it was already burning, it turned to the left ..
