Remember when the United States rolled into Baghdad?
In the fight against suicide bombers, the U.S. military employed a unique tactic. Helpless to stop American tanks by conventional means, Iraqi fighters turned to vehicle born suicide attacks to disable US armor. American tankers counter these assaults with the deadly
“sabot” artillery round. A sabot is a device used in a firearm or cannon to keep a projectile, such as a bullet, in the center of the barrel when fired. Its diameter is smaller than the bore diameter of the weapon used, thus allowing for the use of a different ammunition in addition to more traditional rounds.
In this video, you can see shots from American tanks “liquefying” the enemy threat one shot at a time.
