This tank was a part of an armoured convoy to enter Baghdad. The Iraqi Republican guard ambushed the convoy with Anti Tank Guided Missiles (ATGMs) (probably Russian Kornet Es) and managed to inflict losses on the Americans. I think this tank was later bombed by American planes in order to completely destroy it..hence the huge crater next to it.
Isn't that the same tank that had a load of Iraqis celebrating on it when the Americans took out the tank (fully) with a Mavrick. Killing a number of Iraqis as well as the TV anchor man in the process?
