Suicide Tanks

On the modern battlefield (as in, the assymetrical battlefield of Syria or Iraq versus snackbars), there are few things dreaded as much as the VBIEDs (Vehicle Borne Improved Explosive Devices) or SVBIEDs (where the S stands for suicide). In other words, suicide vehicle bombs. These can take a form of pretty much anything from standard civilian cars to actual tanks (or, more often, BMPs) fitted with explosives.

There is a really, really interesting article on the web that I just found by accident, dealing with the analysis of this kind of vehicles. Sharing it here.
