Missile hit on a tank

video

The missile impact itself ain't all that impressive, but when the ammo inside starts cooking off...... Holy shit!

Got that right Wirecutter... I'm sure he's seen stuff like this but with a 9 month old little boy... ignorance is bliss... there's enough to worry about as it is...

TJ, not to worry. That was a fucked up vidio.
The target was set up to do all that shit to sell the rocket.
The tanks we deploy have ammo shields, counter measures, and a hell of a lot more armor than this POS.

Actually, the video was sent to me as "An Israeli Missile Against A Syrian Tank" but seeing as I couldn't tell you what was what I posted it as I did.

I remember this from long ago. It's a Swedish anti-tank missle demo. It's made to go over the top of the tank (where there's very little armor) and blow down. Tank armor is thin on the bottom too. In WWII P-47's and P-51 Mustangs could take out a Tiger tank by bouncing their .50cal rounds off the ground behind the tank.

The French have much more sophisticated missles.
