"Greatest Tank Battles": February 1991 - Gulf War 1 - Battle of 73 Easting

3/6
From "Greatest tank battles" TV show. Excellent CGI re-creation plus interviews with former combatants.

In August 1990 Saddam Hussein, had invaded and occupied the sovereign nation of Kuwait. The UN, driven by US pressure, had condemned the invasion and authorized a coalition of nations to form a military force to drive Iraqi forces out of Kuwait. This video shows the armored clash at a map coordinate designated "73 Easting" between US armored forces and the elite Iraqi "Tawalkana" tank division, dug in with a large force of modern Russian-made T-72 tanks.
