Military Snapshot - M1A1 Abrams: 1, Insurgent Hideout: 0

The destructive firepower of the M1A1 Abrams 120mm main gun completely demolished an insurgent’s hideout. Infantrymen in the vicinity had to ensure they were some distance away from the gun, or the blast shock wave could cause bleeding from the nose and ears and take one’s breath away.
