Also if you attempt getting close to a tank to deploy one of your many ideas some infantry man will put a few ones in you. Even if you do succeed you are dead.

Taking out a tank is no mean task, and not just any explosive round can take it out with just one shot. It needs special ammo and espacially certain angles to make a clean clear destructive shot, such as on the angular and advanced angular profiled Sherman and Israeli Merkava tanks.
The best hope of taking out tanks are the tracks. Destroy it and it is rendered ineffective, out of action, if it is part of a drive. One less tank and ammos to deal with.

The Russians trained dogs to run under tanks with explosive strapped to their backs. There are recorded instances where it was successful.
Hard to believe, but true. Even harder to believe they only stopped training anti tank suicide dogs in the 90s.
I wonder if given the armour of a modern MBT enough plastic explosive could be strapped to a dog to do the same today.

in response to the Suicide Dogs - the russians had a problem - they trained the dogs using Russian Tanks - not german tanks - so the dogs went for the russian tanks not the germans they didnt smell right....
I'm not sure the post is all that accurate.
Also, one point about bomb-dogs: Even if you're cool with it, and you think it's going to work once It Kicks Off, you're lacking the key thing the Red Army had in order to train the dogs in the first place:
A tank to run under.
