Mostly American M1Abrams, from what I could determine. 3rd pic down is Israeli Merkava. However the 4th down, sitting upside down "No.22" marked one, is that a Challenger? the gun mantlet looks similar?

It is a Challenger and someone died in it.

Post removed as I couldn't get the pic to work.

That has got to be the worst recovery operation I have ever seen, you needed no more than one hook(recovery vehicle) to get that back on the road, instead they used 3, 2 trying to pull the vehicle apart and the other one actuall y appling force in the right direction - shocking!

You're kidding, right? you saw the slope the tank was on?

Why take the risk of a slide down the hill or a rollover when you could have a stay cable attached?

Good point, on that loose surface, unless he was able to easily get it pointing down he ran the risk of throwing a track or overturning.
