    The interesting thing is that this fire is more than llikely not the result of enemy contact, but poor maintenance. I’m certain that anything that could engage an A1D from a distance and make the engine splode would also cause the DAT’s in her crew to not want to be hanging about on the top of it out in the open.

    That tank was hit by enemy fire, I should know I was there! It was hit in the right rear fuel cell, there is no armour there. The fuel went into the v-packs, and would not go out. we almost lost 2 soldiers that day,

    The dude sitting up on top of the .50 is just staring at the fire thinking “s’mores man, s’mores…oh and titties.”

    The tank was hit by enemy fire. As a result of the fire the tank was abandoned. An U.S. air strike was called in to destroy the tank and protect sensitive equipment. Several photos were shown around the world of Iraqi children hanging on the tank after the air strike.

    These soldiers were trying to save this tank while under enemy fire. Soon after this photo was taken two members of the tank company were hit. One in the face and the other was hit three times in the torso.
    You can read more about it in the book Heavy Metal by Cpt. Jason Conroy and Ron Martz.

    The TC was awarded the Silver star.
