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.
