They actually had possession of several Abrams, but most have been destroyed.
They had gotten this one last year
The T-90's seem to do better against ATGM though. Abrams have been getting ripped across Iraq with TOW missilies given to them in Syria to use against Russia and Syria! A DAMN SHAME!
Doesn't do too well against Russian ATGM either it appears...
Here is a T-90 taking a hit head on, but its not in nearly as bad shape. This is the only video I can find of a T-90 getting hit. But there are plenty of T-72 and other older tanks in Syria getting blown to bits by ATGM.

Didn`t they learn anything from world war 2, you can`t send tanks into a city without massive infantry support,if you don`t the infantry to support them then you just completely level the city through carpet bombing.
We are behind the curve though as neither system is deployed.
