You do realise that's between 2-16 dead people (depending on vehicle type)?

Poor people. I knew an ammo rack explosion wouldn't leave much out of the tank, but I thought about something like blowing the turret off... And this? Brutal. And it seems to be quite a light tank... I don't want to know what would happen to a big MBT.

I'm guessing its some kinda of ATGW carrier (from the size of the explosion), its obviously not on tracks. So think something like a LAV-25 with hammer head TOW launcher.

It Is interesting on an academic level, and impressive on a fireworks level though.

And not to forget the collateral damage of this explosion. I don't think the crew had a chance to think about what hit them.

And to all those kids out there.. no it was not a video game and there is no respawn.

There's this one (again, it looks like a training exercise, no-one got killed).

Watch the turret fly!

Is that a misfire or a hit from some rocket?

Actually that would had been the better; it was quick. Those who couldn't get out and were burnt alive were the unlucky ones.

Btw, honour to the sacrifice your grandfather made! Quite some different times back then. (Mine fought the Russians on the Eastern front).

Looks like someone hits it with a HEAT warhead, about mid lower hull, as it emerges from the building(Tunnel?). The rest is all ammo Cooking off.
