A sequence of three photos showing the impact of an extended-range anti-armor munition warhead on an Army M-48 full-tracked combat tank target. The left photo shows the warhead seconds before impact. The self-forging fragment of the warhead, in the middle photo, is being fired into the engine by the built-in infrared sensor. The fragment, in the right photo, penetrates and immobilizes the engine
