  1. Looks like those ISIL fighters did NOT have anti-tank weapons to use against those Peshmerga tanks. Maybe they did but the Peshmerga focused their fire FIRST on the ISIL fighters that had the anti-tank weapons and killed them first, then the tanks went rolling through the rest of the ISIL fighters killing them next, or the infantry and accompanying armour did.

    If you haven’t got any anti-tank weapons then its extremely difficult to take out a tank, and there are at least 3 tanks there, and tanks should always have mobile infantry with the tanks and they usually are in armoured vehicles that have machine guns mounted on them, that’s a typical armoured force.
