The new TOW is nasty


Notice it detonates above the turret so it can strike down at the thinnest armor on the tank.

And they could do a live field test in Libya, just sneak some SpecOps people over the borders...

Wow. I really do not want to know how heavy that turret was.

20-some-odd tons, I believe

At 40 thousand US a pop they are a very expensive toy. But pennies compared to a million dollar tank.

What make of tanks does Libya have? Their aircraft were French.

It would be interesting to see how a more modern tank stands up to it.
