Reports of Ukraine blowing up an Abrams with one of their own mines… additional reporting it was being used for clearing mines.

There was video of a leopard tank crew purposely ditching a tank in mud to flee a battlefield before this.


@thendrix The Abrams can still get one hit killed by the Javelin. That's even with reactive armor.

I don't know what I'm more surprised by, a tank known for losing tracks being used to clear a minefield or it allegedly being destroyed by a Ruskie mine. That had to be a mobility kill. It took large IEDs to kill an Abrams in Iraq.

In other news, the inferior tank was rightfully abandoned before a battle.
