Break the track of any tracked vehicle and you stop that tracked Vehicle. Nex you take out the vehicles sighting system and you cause him to shoot blindly. If you happen to be armed with something really bad in the power department, you aim for the Turret Ring. The Turret Ring is where the turret is connected to the tanks shell.
It will be hard doing all of these things. But with the correct weapons anything is possible.
A Track can be broken with something like a big piece of steel. And I mean Big. Stick it where it will ride along on the track when the track vehicle is moving forward or in reverse. It should come in contact with one of the Road Wheels and the piece of metal should not be big around, like a bowling ball. It will work much better if it is pointed on the ends. If you do not have such a piece of steel, try using a big rock.
Sure you will be taking a chance of catching a hand in the track where it goes under the Road Wheel but not a very big chance if you are fast and sure of what you are trying to do.
Thanks for the outside the box ideas on defensive measures....they are Great!!!! It's people like you that give me inspiration like those who fought overwhelming odds against the Brits and didn't give up or succumb to their fears. As for those who have been brainwashed into believe opposition is futile, maybe this isn't the forum for you.
as an x M1 tank commander there isnt much that will stop an M1 . todays M1 are pretty bullet proof . you might get lucky to take out the tracks with a RPG . or get a good shot in the turrent ring or take out the engine . the only real thing that will take it out is a heat seeking missle .
Digging a giant hole will work too. Disguise it, and the tank drives in.
