I am starting this thread so that the BIS "FlashNews Armour Hit Competition." does not go off topic.
I do not exclude other AT than RPG or Other Armor than the Abrams from this thread.
Basicly it is for us to discuss that perenial problem can the antitank weapon beat the tank.
In reply to Schattenlied in the BIS "FlashNews Armour Hit Competition."

I now continue here:
An example of that is how badly the IDF got its arse kicked in Labanon recently.
Let us see what the profesionals think
And now consider that Hezbollah did not just beat the tank Armor they beat the IDF's codes

It is somewhat sobering to consider that since the US and Israel uses similar technology it means the Iranians are probably listening in on US traffic in Iraq.
Consider also that the competition only says RPG it does not say RPG7 nor does it exclude the use of a tandem war head and of course there is the RPG-29 which did defeat the armor of Merkava tank which is said to be comparible to an Abrams.
Have a read:
Of course that was a Merkava.. and being all patriotic or some such you might say "...but an RPG could not defeat an Abrams"
I beg to differ
As does reality
And the Army Times
