Wow... a jeep with an anti-tank missile. So advanced, why we’ve had nothing like this since... Korean War?
I think they call that a “technical.”

So an SUV can hide 8 TOWs and stop to fire at an old WW II tank that is not moving?
Abrams don't go may places where air superiority isn't assures.
Flat bottom like that SUV dies from below, and runs from Apaches.
Looks like more Putin propaganda.

Naw, what you do, see, is roll up to the target and knock on the turret and ask ‘em if you can borrow a cup of fuel. They’ll be laughing so hard they won’t be combat-effective for days.
Incorrect headline: should read” Russian 4WD with NASTY SUPPRISE for US Army Tanks of WWII Vintage”

Wow... a jeep with an anti-tank missile.
It's getting late, and I read the headline "Russian 4WD with..." as "Russian with WD40..."
So I was expecting to see a Russian sneak up to an Abrams with a can of oil. So I'm actually a little bit disappointed.

The driver better hope they put in a switch so it cannot be fired from inside the vehicle by accident.....
The comments at the link say it all. What a joke.

It probably helps to be backed up against a tree.

You should turn the bbl around. Then you wouldn’t need an engine :)

In the 70’s, didn’t we have Cav vehicles with this very concept in Europe, for slowing down a Soviet attack through Hof or Fulda?
And the West German Light Armored cars of the same period?

The worst thing you can do is underestimate your opponent.
Russia developed the best tank in WWII, the very good AK47, the cheap but effective RPG that still gives us fits, the Hind helicopter and a world class armored personnel carrier in the BTR series.
We developed arms to counter this military equipment and the Russians and Chinese will work to counter ours.
The Abrams is the best tank in the world, but any enemy would be developing countermeasures to defend against it. To think that no one would be able to do it is sticking your head in the sand.

He will. UAVs have had eyes-on of the Abrams’ BN path-of-travel for hours. BN TOC will probably just request an Apache gunship to take it out. No sense in taking risks.
Against an Abrams, you stop, you die. The Abrams shoots on the move with amazing accuracy. Any opposing vehicle that cannot is likely toast.
