Wrecked Iraqi T72 Tank




Description

The wreck of an Iraqi T72 tank following the US left flanking attack into the Iraqi desert to surround and destroy Sadaam Hussein's Republican Guard units. The detail shows the damage caused by the depleted uranium tipped APFSDS (Sabot) rounds fired by tanks like the Abrams. It only shows a small puncture in the armour, but nothing within the tank would survive the resultant internal explosion.

Location

Iraqi desert, 1991
