Merge from tank#Vulnerability[edit]

The article Tank is far too large. Most of the tank#Vulnerability section should be merged here, leaving behind a concise summary. Any objections? Michael Z. 2006-10-18 16:52 Z

I think that's appropriate - most of the information really belongs here anyway. Carom 17:48, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Rewrite needed[edit]

this article has no refs and sound likes a non-formal lecturer please rewrite into a clearer, more formal format.

i recently deleted a sentence reading "The only thing that saved the south koreans and the americans from a total rout was a well organized retreat."

basically, the thing is, now matter how you put it, a retreat is a retreat. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zarzhu (talkcontribs) 00:11, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Also, the WW2 section says: "...its allies in the West were resigned to its defeat by a numerically superior Wehrmacht...". That is wrong. In fact, the Allies outnumbered the Wehrmacht in both, men and machines (-tanks-), since the very beginning of the war. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 62.154.195.115 (talk) 12:47, 17 August 2011 (UTC)

Anti-tank aircraft section[edit]

This can/needs to be REALLY expanded!--mrg3105 (comms) ♠♣ 07:09, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Rocket man[edit]

Steven J. Zaloga, in US [sic] Anti-tank Artillery 1941-45 (Oxford: Osprey, 2005), p.8, says the combination of rocket motor and shaped charge warhead leading to bazooka put an end to U.S. Army development of light antitank guns. I just can't figure out where to put it in... TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 09:16, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

Silliness of the US Army section is perhaps ill-advised given the readership :) Koakhtzvigad (talk) 11:29, 30 December 2010 (UTC)

== "Among novelties designed to defeat AT missiles, some tanks (like the M-84, Yugoslav variant of T-72) fitted advanced detection sensors which, when detecting high heat signatures of a missile launch, would automatically aim and fire machine guns at the source of the launch. Facing these tanks in large numbers during the Yugoslav wars, units fighting them adapted by either firing missiles and immediately moving or by firing multiple missiles at once, which overloaded the sensors."

That's just an urban legend. I've read that in quite many places, but haven't seen a single real source for it. I'm removing it. Latre (talk) 17:37, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Molotov cocktails[edit]
