I heard that the tank was disabled. If it was It could have been as simple as throwing a track, or blowing out a transmision. Tank are a strange combination of ultra togh and fragile at the same time.

Is a RPG really powerful enough to disable the track of a tank. I mean, a landmine surely blows the track but RPG?

1 down 3,452 to go!

I mean come on, a track can be disabled or whatever but it doesnt negate the fact that there are so many more tanks ready to roll up to the fox hole and blow it to Kingdom come!
