Description
Video from two U.S. military targeted airstrikes against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) targets in northern Iraq. The first attack occurred about 6:45 a.m. EDT when two F/A-18 aircraft dropped 500-pound laser-guided bombs on a mobile artillery piece near Irbil, the capital of Iraq’s Kurdistan region. ISIL was using this artillery to shell Kurdish forces defending the city, where U.S. personnel are located. Two additional air strikes occurred later in the day, the last at about 11:20 a.m. EDT when four F/A-18 aircraft successfully struck a stationary ISIL convoy of seven vehicles and a mortar position near Irbil, neutralizing the mortar and convoy. - See more at: http://www.apacheclips.com/boards/media/5732-US-military-FA-18-hornet-strikes-in-Iraq#sthash.6keS0AD8.dpuf

We lost 80 Abrams in the OIF, most behind enemy lines. There is a good chance a lot of countries have a sample of our latest armor.

@opossum - lets not argue, my heart can't take us fighting anymore ( trying not to laugh ) can't we all just get along and just have some makeup texts lmao? See isn't humor much better then being too serious Have some fun on AC because as John Lennon said “Life is very short, and there's no time for fussing and fighting my friends." and remember "laughter is the best medicine."

You're not a dick every American has the right to free speech and your opinion is your opinion but I know my history so don't worry about that and if you didn't like my example there's plenty more for instance the Israelis since May 14 1948 - till this day (66 years, 2 months, 4 weeks and 2 days) have exchanged prisoners while still at war with Lebanon and many other examples abound because enemies will trade, exchange, have a ceasefire, and other things while at war with an enemy.

Enemies who were fighting each other have done deals with each other Russia in WWII was fighting on Hitlers side against the allies but then made a deal with the allies to start fighting Hitler and as soon as Hitler lost Russia went back to fighting the allies you might of heard of it a little forty some year war called the Cold War and no need for happy thoughts lol pissed off SF's are good enough believe that my friend.

"The enemy of my enemy is my friend" hardly applies if said "friends" are activley fighting against your allies. Besides like I said Russsia and or China probably already bribed some corrupt Egyptian officer years ago to get some samples.
And no I didn't say the armour doesn't fit the kind of war we'd wage against them, I said it doesn't fit the kind of war they'd fight against us. The current tech just is to cmplicated to reach the kind of production rates they like.

Oh and again considereing the capabilties of the armour its no big whoop, like I said again its aging and modern US antitank weapons can defeat it.

Even if your worried about russia improving their AT capabilites your again boxing with your own shadow, one of their more simplistic weapons [RPG29] that is no less 25 years old can already kill and disable even the most modern version of the Abrams.

Oh to the contrary there are lots of things that are unfeasble even for a pissed of American. We are talking about reality not some kind of acton movie, US special forces aren't the fucking Expendables and they shouldn't be deployed as if they were. You can't just pull a major operation like the one your talking about out of your ass.
You can't capture and evacuate almost 8000 tons of equipment with happy thoughts.

@opossum - First off we've said m1a1's have first generation tank armour and are not the newest m1a2's tusk Abram tanks and as for our enemies already knowing what the m1a1's armour is made of so it won't matter if it's given to them thats not true our enemies may have documents saying what it's made of but they dont know how to make it. The m1a1's armour is still the second best armour in the world including it's gut ( electronics ) are second best too in their field. Two, I hope you're joking if you're not you better learn quick fast and in a hurry that when you say if our enemies did want our technology they'd never trade, buy or get it because our enemies are enemies of ISIS and ISIS is enemies with them. Have you ever heard the old saying " The enemy of my enemy is my friend ". our enemies would buy or trade or except our technology so fast your head would spin whether they were ISIS 's enemy or not and ISIS would probably just give our technology away freely to damage us in anyway possible because before forming a global caliphate ISIS first wants to destroy America. Also you say our tanks armour isn't wanted by our enemies because it's not designed for the type of war we'd wage against our enemies, I don't know how you can say that, since that's exactly the type of warfare it was designed for, if anything close quarter urban warfare which is where were using our tanks is what it wasnt designed for. Thirdly and finally nothing is unfeasable when you give a task to or piss off an American Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, or most of all American Special Forces men, and of course we know the tanks were ordered by Bush but he didn't pull all our troops out and left no permanent bases like any normal status of forces agreement we've signed before would of required, but instead not EVIL Bush did these things but chill up your leg coward and chief Barry did.

Hm the M1A1s the Iraqis have don't have the latest armor packages. Those are the really important ones. A much bigger concern would be
compromising the sensor tech.
Another thing you have to consider is that the countrys you fear ISIS could deal such secrets to are all hostile towards ISIS and its allies.
But lets just say they somehow manage to make a deal, US weapons are capable of defeating the kind of ceramic armour used on the Abrams, so not really a disaster. More importantly this kind of armour doesn't even remotley fit into the tank doctrine of any possible big adversarys.

So considering these factors I'd call the threat mild at best.
Besides a recovery of every active Abrams and all wrecked ones would be unfeasble, insanley risky for the US forces involved.

Oh and the russians and chinese probably already aquired samples of the armour from other scources. Oh and btw the decision to give Abrams tanks to Iraq was already made when your coward in chief got into office.

@Louielopez - jdams will only stop Isis from using the tanks and actually help them to do what is the real threat for the USA which is them giving or most likely selling pieces of the classified armour on the Abrams to every anti American country who have been chomping at the bit since it was developed to get a chunk of that armour. So blowing them up is not an option we must retake control of every Abrams, but with the coward on chief we have he doesn't have the sense god gave a billy goat to locate each Abrams and keep 24hr a day 7 days a week uav surveillance and once located bring up AC-130 gunships, apaches, bombers, and special forces to take the Abrams to nearest airport or to nearest areas still under Kurdish or Iraq control and then take em to which ever is fastest an Iraq port or airport and for the ports load them on ships and for an airport start taking 2 Abrams in each c-2 plane and 1 Abrams on each c-17 planes until we have all of them back. It's would be tough don't think I don't realize this but with total air superiority and SF's they could get it done and they'd probably kill half the Isis snack bars while doing it too. The only thing preventing this is the person who caused this our coward in chief.
