I've seen some nasty hits on an M1, but nothing like this. --Very sobering. Prayers for the crew.

Two armored personnel carriers with 17 Ukrainian peacekeepers were ambushed on the night of October 28 near As Suwayrah, northwest of their base at Kut. Three mines exploded under the vehicles and the terrorists then opened fire. Five wounded were hospitalized in Baghdad, and the two others suffered only slight injuries. Earlier in the day, the enemy using a roadside bomb disabled an M1A2 SEP Abrams tank from 3rd Battalion, 67th Armor Regiment. The blast killing two crew members and wounding a third. The attack was about (40 kilometers northeast of Balad). An unidentified US defense official said an IED was detonated underneath the tank and the force of the blast caused it to roll over a 30 foot embankment.
