    Probably another tank or a lucky hit from an RPG was what caused the tank to be abandoned in the first place. Then other Abrams or an aircraft hit it to assure the Iraqis didn't get anything from it. That happened in this one book I read about the Iraq war, and seems to be what they usually do if they don't plan on recovering the tank anytime before they think the enemy can get to it because of combat.

    I heard somewhere (maybe in this forum) that T-72's main gun cannot punch through an M1's amour. RPG? I'm afraid there's noway an RPG can beat the M1. I guess some anti tank missile is more possible.

    Well in the book I read the tank was in an armoured column, rolling down the highway into the city center in Baghdad engaging thousands of Iraqi infantry on the sides of the higway. An RPG struck it somehwere in the back and ignited some sort of fuel line that didn't stop the tank but lit the back of it on fire. They stopped the tank and tried to put the fire out but flammable stuff just kept dripping out of the ruptured line so the crew had to leave the tank. Then the other tanks shot it several times and an F-16 dropped a bomb on it to prevent it from being inspected by the Iraqis.

    Afterward it looked like the one in the picture. Just shows you how tough M1s are.

    This sound more reasonable. The rear part is the most weakest point of a tank. But I'm curious if an RPG can cut the M1's track?
