    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.
