How many Iraqi tanks where knoked-out by US forces? The reason I ask is that my dad thinks that only 3 or 4 tanks where dystroyed and that (1) the rest got out of the country before the war or that (2) 'ol Sadom never had them in the first place! My dads hearing isn't what it used to be and he watches the morning shows on ABC, NBC, and CBS and takes it as the gosple truth. This combination tends to f*ck-up his thinking and makes it imposible to hold a conversation with him. So, if anyone has some GOOD info on this subject, please post it.

I would give up. He is beleving what he wants to beleve however surreal. We killed about 350-400 tanks and IFVs. But a lot of them had been abandoned first and we just destroyed them to keep from being reoccupied.

perhaps an easier question would be; How many Iraqi Armored vehicles remain serviceable ? [:D]

The number I heard was around 700 – and that was a few days before the war formally ended. "Kicking Ass" does not even begin to describe what we did to Iraqi armor.
