As per the title I will represent the last most violent tank confrontation between the US forces representing the 2ND Armored Cavalry based in Germany Vilseck Rose Barracks (Grafewohr) and the Iraqui Republican Guard in the desert.
It will be focused on the action made by Cpt. Mc Master (Now 3 Star General) commander of Eagle Troop and his Tank platoon with some Bradleys, that obliterated a full company of Iraqui tank and Apcs on Feb 26th 1991 from 4.18pm to 4.40pm
In less than 23 minutes 9 M1A1 tanks of Eagle Troop and Bradleys destroyed 28 Iraqi tanks, 16 personnel carriers and 30 trucks with no American losses

Hi Greg
Always interesting to see a specific incident modelled. Portraying destroyed vehicles is difficult. I look forward to seeing this come together.
