Re: armour piercing bombs
armour piercing bomb = a bomb that can go through the thick metal of a tank. Some say that the bombs that are capable of this come from Iran. The bomb has a special shape and when it explodes, the metal melts and flies off at such speed that it can cut through thick metal.
