    I am trying to understand what we saw there. Did a blast from the tank detonate the rocket before it got to the tank?

    From Popular Mechanics: "Hereís how it works: A tank or other armored vehicle is ringed with several millimeter-wave radars, each pointed outward and assigned a different arc of sky. If the radars pick up an incoming rocket or missile, they track the target and determine if itís on a collision course with the vehicle. If it is, the APS automatically launches an interceptor munition that pops out of an armored silo located on the tank and terminates the threat."

    Cost is about $300,000 per unit.

    So what happens if the tank is attacked from two or more directions at once? is the tank bristling with these things?
    What happens if two RPG's are fired more or less simultaneously, does the second one get through because it's popped it's cork on the first one?

    Classified! If we told you, you would be able to circumvent our protection.

    So, file a "Freedom of Information Act," and publish the results. Then the families of the soldiers who are killed...
