You're right. It is a totally different animal when you're talking about driving over an IED that can contain several 500 pound bombs, as opposed to a conventional land mine. It is almost unbelievable that anything can do that to an M1A1.
Hell, you pile enough explosives together and you can blow away half a mountain.

exactly, with an IED you have NO idea how big the explosion is going to be hence the name... IED(Improvised Explosive Device), could be 2000lb's of explosives or just 50lbs.. you never know.
