Last tank lost in action.

I was watching one of those documentaries yesterday on Discovery, about tank battles. (This particular one was about Vietnam.)
It just got me wondering, when was the last time we lost an MBT in action to enemy fire?

Cheers,
Old Nig.
 
Is that destroyed and unrecovered or immobilised from enemy fire but later recovered and repaired?

I think really I mean properly destroyed by the enemy. I saw the thread on the tank that was shot up for ages but recovered crew intact and then repaired, it was interesting. Have we lost any in Iraq or Afghanistan or do have to go back much further?
 
Korea, Happy Valley?

The only one I remember in Iraq was a blue on blue.
 
I heard the last British made, British crewed tank killed by an enemy anti tank weapon was 1945, with a Panzerschreck. Can't remember a source though
