He could be a candidate for the Darwin Award. Gota be pretty stupid to engage a tank with a rifle.
I dimly recall reading that in days gone by some of you guys successfully did just that.

WWII. Scottish regiment that the German's referred to as "Hell's Ladies."

Their sharpshooters used SMLEs to put aimed fire through tank observation slits.

This might have been at Dunkirk. Read this so long ago that I no longer recall any further particulars.
Now if only we had employed those tactics in The Province in the 70's!!

.......H 10, TI 0, 3x Harriers, your location, 2 mins, laze now, over........

Aye, bet he didn't expect a response of that magnitude :D . I remember seeing one a while ago where a certain insurgent pegs it into the road to fire off an R.P.G and gets a load of incoming to feck his day up. He is planted well and truly on his arrse, he then gets a sniper round to the bonce to top his day off nicely :D
