Yes - strap a couple of 122mm howitzer HE rounds on a anti tank mine and it will destroy any land vehicle that is out there.

They have added approximetely 1.5 tons worth of belly armor for the M1 series Tusk program. And electronic devices that are currently deployed in Iraq seem to be doing a better job in locating them and self destructing them.

2 D-9s with their dozers in the ground are a far more effective solution...

Yes - when traveling or patroling on sand and rock roadways.

Hey! Hope you don't mind if we just kinda plow your village! Thank you for your cooperation!
Man, what do you do in an urban environment? Surely the civilians would have seen any IED be planted, right? Or that dusty car everyone seems to be avoiding...

Why Sherman - we have to be nice to the Iraqis and minimize the amount of damage that we do over there.
