Soldiers in Iraq use a M203 to blow up an overturned fuel tanker
I guess the idea was so that insurgents couldn't get some freebie fuel for explosives use. Nice shot. a M203 is a 40mm single shot grenade launcher that can be attached under the barrel of a M16/M4. While the Russians went with the RPG, we went this way. Its lighter and more mobile than a RPG and the gunner can carry more ammo. The trade off of course is that the RPG has a much bigger bang and can take out armored vehicles as well as personnel. I carried a 203 for a while and even got to fire live rounds with it out at NTC, as well as fought off scavenging coyotes with flare rounds. Yeah me.
This looks like it was fun for these guys, its great when Uncle Sam lets you blow stuff up you normally would never get a chance to blow up.
