It sounds to me just like the method the Palis used to knock out a Merkava - so either the Palis have come to Iraq, or they have trained someone who is there.

The concept of the anti-tank mine is neither new or unique.

Actually, this incident was caused by a modified 155mm artillery round with additional explosives placed around it to serve as a booster.

Common boobytrap in Vietnam. Used in the Intifada with some success.
