Re: captured weapons
Did the Cobras knock out some of those tanks ? What armament if so ? How did the U.S. tanks fare in the battle ? The U.S. had M-48 tanks over there with 90mm guns , even though there were plenty of newer , much better M-60's with 105mm's in inventory. There were some units, such as 11th ACR that traded in their M-48's for the M551's . If I remember right, our M-48 Tankers only kept about 3 heat [ anti-tank ] rounds onboard. I am sure that scenario changed in a hurry once Russian armor started crossing into the country. I would like to have seen a " tank duel , " BUT only if we won !
