As far as the OP's comment saying he has a physics degree and understands how weapons work... Well first off of the OP had any sort of degree from a college .... he should get his money back. He has stated in another thread that Israel has not signed a treaty with us so they don't have an ALLEGIANCE with us....
Now there are so many things wrong with that sentence which is a fairly accurate paraphrase of SEVERAL posts where he reiterated this statement like saying it enough would make it a fact. I won't even go into correcting the half a dozen Conceptual, grammatical, syntax, and past tense versus present tense errors that routinely appear in his writings. Nor his infantile sub FAUX news conceptual framework of how HE THINKS the world works.

I don't know a ton about tanks or armor but I do know the US has been using this type of reactive armor for some time now. I understand it looks bad on the video but lets be honest the OP doesn't know the battle status of this tank after the rocket hit.
I don't know, I just find it hard to believe that an RPG can take out out an Abrams.
I do know that the largest RPG (650 or 750 mm) can do some heavy damage to an abrams, especially from behind. I just find it hard to believe that it can actually incapacitate a modern American abrams with all the add ons that they have invested in them. We spend a fortune on this crap....its disappointing to see it destroyed so easily
Hell this person gets hit with a RPG and survives. Believe me that tank didn't feel a thing.
It may not be fully disabled but it is less than fully operational and battle ready. RPG-29 is designed specifically to defeat ERA. Some people (not you) just skip over my comments without reading what I said earlier when someone mentioned ERA
